day 190: put your ipod or mp3 player on shuffle and list the first ten songs/artists. How did you find the music?
America - from West Side Story I genuinely do not remember when I first watched West Side Story, but I am proud to know almost every word to every song. Leonard Bernstein was a genius.
Misery - Maroon5 One of my mom’s co-workers years ago actually copied their album Songs About Jane for us. I instantly fell in love with this group.
Summer Hair=Forever Young - The Academy Is… This was the period of my life when I first discovered all of the Fueled By Ramen bands in middle school. They were a great group and it was sad to see them part ways.
Homesick At Space Camp - Fall Out Boy I fucking love Fall Out Boy. They’ll always be my favorite. I’ve gone so much listening to them and how they would make me feel better. I was so disheartened when they went on a “break”
Jizz In My Pants - The Lonely Island I found out about The Lonely Island from watching SNL; the first song I heard being I’m On A Boat. Their songs are so funny and the music videos are hilarious!
Buddy Holly - Weezer Oh Weezer…I started really listening to them when I saw them on the Blink reunion tour. I got to meet them at Best Buy when they released Raditude. I love the music video for this song since I kind of grew up watching Happy Days. Long live The Fonz!
My First Kiss - 3OH!3 I remember when Don’t Trust Me first came out my freshman year. It is such a good song. They just have really catchy songs that will not leave your head for days.
Careless Whisper - George Michael You are lying to yourself if you don’t like this song or even George Michael for that matter.
Dust Bowl Dance - Mumford & Sons I saw their music video on Vh1’s countdown one time and instantly fell in love. They are such an amazing group and I really can’t wait for their next album. Anything they do just heals my soul.
In Repair - John Mayer My mom was actually the one who found out about him. I was going through that phase where you hate anything your parents like, but I eventually came around. I feel like his songs just have so much meaning and he is a pretty beast guitarist. I personally prefer Continuum and his trio though. Gotta love the blues.
