Cannibal Queen

Tell It to the Volcano

I’m supposed to be writing a paper right now, which is why I’m so inspired to post on my blog instead. Don’t worry, it’s a 500 word paper. I could literally write that in about half an hour. And I will.

But for now, I just made a new playlist for when I’m walking or driving to school of my favorite new songs. I keep wanting to talk about bands that I’ve already posted about, which is part of the reason I haven’t done a new post for a few days. I just don’t want to listen to other bands right now!

I’ve been listening to Wolf Gang, The Temper Trap, Jukebox the Ghost, Wilco, Two Door Cinema Club, and Miike Snow all week. I know I haven’t posted about some of those, but they’re just too popular, darn those bands. I’ll make an exception sometime.

But today I will make one exception, I’m going to talk about a band I’ve talked about before. Many of you may not recognize this as one of the bands I’ve talked about because I talked about them in my very first post. Drum roll, please:

Cannibal Queen, by Miniature Tigers

I’ve talked about the band, but the song is different. Last time I talked about Boomerang, which is also a great song!

This music video is one that I highly endorse! It is hilarious! Click on the title to watch it, it is worth every second.

I am just so in love with this band! I love Charlie Brand, their lead singer, because he just looks so . . . I don’t know, what would you call his expression in this video? Apathetic? Drugged? It’s hard to tell.

But their songs have such a double meaning in them, and they’re all so peppy! I mean, Cannibal Queen is a very upbeat song, unless you listen to the lyrics, or watch the video. Watch it, you’ll see what I mean.

Very great band all around, and I just recently acquired their album F O R T R E S S. It is fantastic. I love them. How many times can I say that? I love them.

Make me happy, give them a listen, tell me what you think of their music video? Also, if you have any good adjectives for his expression, please share! Thanks a bundle!

Happy Labor Day!! Did anyone do anything fun?

I went to a baseball game (we won) and we went to the zoo this morning! I just want to say, I love zoo’s so much!! And to all the people who want to release the animals from zoo’s, I’ve got something to say to you!!! And this is it: “Well, that seems valid. However, read the beginning of Life of Pi. Boom! Point proven.”

I don’t have a specific featured artist today, but I have been compiling a list of my ALL-TIME favorite songs. Of all time. Favorite. Drum roll, please! Well okay, pause the drum roll, I’m going to list other favorite’s first, and then get to the ALL-TIME favorites. All sources are from youtube, most are vevo, so sorry about the commercials.

Here are the ones that are my favorite right now, but might not make it to my favorite of all time. These are the :

Anna Sun, by Walk the Moon (awesome, hilarious music video by the way)

The Writer, by Ellie Goulding

Safe and Sound, by Capital Cities

It’s Time, by Imagine Dragons

Tongue Tied, by Grouplove

Cry Like a Ghost, by Passion Pit

Boomerang, by Miniature Tigers

These are the one’s that might eventually make it to my favorite of all time list. Let’s call them the “Maybe’s.” Or maybe the “Call Me Maybe’s” hah ha ha Oh Carly, at the same time I love and hate that song.

But here they are, the Maybe’s:

1901, by Phoenix

Free, by the Zac Brown Band

Champagne Lemonade, by Ed Drewett (This song has some great memories attached!)

Time to Pretend, MGMT

The Gambler, by Fun.

Weights and Measures, by Dry the River

For sure’s (stood the test of time):

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, by U2

Into the Ocean, by Blue October

Float On, by Modest Mouse

Slide, by the Goo Goo Dolls

Unwound, by the Real You

Vultures, by John Mayer

To a Friend, by Alexisonfire (This one is a little random, it’s screamo, but it’s the guy known as City and Colour in his old band.)

I Miss You, by Blink 182

Aqueous Transmission, by Incubus

Odds, by mutemath

Chicago, by The Uglysuit
There’s definitely more I could put under the Maybe’s. I really don’t think there’s any more for my ALL-TIME list, but if you have suggestions for best songs in the world, try me. Thanks for reading!
