Me On Shuffle

This post was inspired by Jordyn. (Which is a nice way of saying I stole her idea). I have put my iTunes on shuffle, and I will discuss the songs that come up. I also want to take this opportunity to say: Music snobbery is not okay! I still don’t understand Jordyn’s love of country music, but I was only kidding when I insulted her intelligence because of it! Everybody’s music is okay. Everybody’s music is their own personal taste, and judging people based on their music taste is stupid. Many of my good friends enjoy country music. Do I understand it? No. But do I think less of them because of it? I may kid and say so, but no. Don’t judge me by my music taste. 

Be OK by Ingrid Michaelson: Super coincidence! I only learned of this song recently because of Jordyn! It’s quite good. Besides being catchy and foot-tapping-inspiring, it has a message I definitely agree with. The chorus says, “I just want to be ok.” And who doesn’t? I certainly do. 

Hot’N’Cold by Katy Perry: What can I say? It’s catchy. It’s about how people are inconsistent, which is totally true. But mostly it’s just catchy. 

The Mary Getaway by The Working  Title: I like this song. I like how the lyrics are a little more complicated than, for example, the previous two songs. Plus, I love pretty much everything by The Working Title. I like these lines: “I’m sure to find true love/Under angel wings/Assured and locked so tight/I know she’s whispering/Alone and savoring/Life alone tonight.” 

Leaving Hogwarts by John Williams (from the Harry Potter soundtrack): Yes, I do love Harry Potter. The books have been very important in my life, and I’ve been reading them for a very long time. This particular song off the movie soundtrack has no real significance to me, but the books do.

I Feel Fine by The Beatles: I think it is (or should be) undisputed that the Beatles are awesome. That said, this is not one of my favorite songs of theirs. 

Amsterdam by Coldplay: I steal an idea from Jordyn, the first song is one of her recommendations, and look at this–a song off a mix CD she gave me! This is slightly creepy. But thanks for letting me know about awesome music, my country music loving friend. I like this song. I would also like to go to Amsterdam someday. Of course that could be said about nearly any place in the world. 

Since U Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson: The letter “U” in the title as a word annoys me to no end. I do enjoy the song, though. I like this song because it is a little more proactive than most songs about people leaving. It is, “I can breathe for the first time/I’m so movin’ on,” as opposed to (this is just theoretical here, not from an actual song “Oh no, you left and I’m dying.” 

Take On Me by Sara Bareilles: Sara Bareilles is very talented. However, this is not my favorite of her songs, both in terms of sound, and in terms of I don’t really understand it.

Let Me Go by Good Charlotte: Good Charlotte is a very nostalgic band for me. I loved them when I was about twelve, and so, despite my more recent realization that they are not actually that great, they hold a special place in my heart. This particular song is quite catchy. Hmmm. It seems that a substantial portion of my music collection is “catchy.” I’m not sure if this is good or not.

Conspiracy by Paramore: I love Paramore. The lead singer’s voice is awesome. 

Sino Te Hubieras Ido by Mana: I’m surprised a Spanish song hasn’t come up before this; a decent part of my music collection is in Spanish. I like listening to music in Spanish becase a) it’s a cool feeling to understand another language and b) it helps me understand more in Spanish. I like speaking Spanish. I can’t wait until I have Spanish class again next semester.

Size Matters by Natasha Bedingfield: This is kind of a cheesy song. It says, your heart matters, be a good person, have lots of love. It’s a great message, but possibly a little weird for a pop song. Unless I’m missing something here. This also falls under the category of catchy music. 

Bateau Brise by Immaculate Machine: Ooh, French! I love the sound of this song, and I like the French version even more than the English version, although both together means I understand the French better, and that’s pretty cool. 

Let’s Make Love And Listen To Death From Above by CSS: I like this song, and pretty much everything by this band. It’s a little offbeat, but lots of fun to listen to, and doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Carry on my Wayward Son by Kansas: My love for this song is intense and kind of inexplicable. I first heard it on one of my favorite TV shows, Supernatural, and since then I listen to it at least once a day because I feel it is incredibly awesome. 

Dhoom Machale by Esha Deol, Uday Chopra, and Abhishek Bachchan: I must confess a love for Bollywood music here. I have no idea what they’re saying, but it just makes me want to get up and dance. Which makes sense because Bollywood is all about the dancing. I haven’t seen many Bollywood movies, but I love the music. 

I’m going to stop here, but this was fun, if not entirely productive. I hope someone was entertained by this.

    (a) I knew you were joking, and (b) the first song on this list? AWESOME, it’s one of my theme songs! Haha I love the songs on this list… at least the ones I’ve heard, which are most of them. Paramore rules, Amsterdam is one of my favorite Coldplay songs, and the Beatles (obviously) are hardcore awesome.
