You may remember this post, where I posted my favorite songs of the week. I decided to reinstate that today. I think I was inspired by Wendy's blog, which is the new rockin' awesome blog that I'm stalking (but now that I've come out and said it and commented, maybe it's not technically stalking? I don't know...) So, on my sidebar, you've got an entire playlist of songs that I'm absolutely loving right now! (Probably not as cool to you as it is to me, but hey....it's my blog, and I'm posting it despite what you think anyway.)
1. "Second Chance" by Shinedown.
I was very skeptical about this band when my friend said they were awesome as we watched them at seven freakin' o'clock yesterday morning, waiting for the local news morning show to come on. When they performed live on the national morning show, I still wasn't sold, but she played me their recording of this song, and it's awesome.
2. "Earthquakes and Sharks" by Brandston.
My roommate was playing this song yesterday, and it was just catchy to me. I don't know what it is about this song, but I really like it. It also mentions an element of my past that gives me butterflies still.
3. "Never Say Never" by The Fray.
I. Love. The. Fray. It is what it is.
4. "Ride of the Valkyries" by Wagner.
Yes. Ridiculous as it is, Wagner made it onto the list. Believe it or not (and as weird as it may be), there are some positive connotations that I have to this song.
5. "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey.
Most every playlist I make contains this song or "Let It Be" (as those of you who have read my blog for a while may know). May get old to some people, but the way I see it....if you have a song that doesn't absolutely drive you crazy after playing it 100 times, you hold onto that (haha, that sounded really cheesy).
6. "You're Not Sorry" by Taylor Swift.
You can say what you want to say about her or this song, but I think she's great and this song is fan-freakin'-tastic.
7. "Rock & Roll" by Eric Hutchinson.
You can't feel unhappy while listening to this song (well....maybe you can....I'm sure on my crappiest days I could...but it still brings me great joy).
8. "Babe" by Styx.
Haha, a friend of mine from high school said it best. "Styx=win." I don't care what you think. I. Love. Styx.
9. "Fearless" by Taylor Swift.
Slipping on ice, barriers going down, the past coming back to decide that it wasn't done with me....yup. This song. (Don't feel bad if that made no sense.)
10. "Stop and Stare" by OneRepublic.
Because sometimes memories of feeding ice cream to ducks never fade.
