Cover of Believe in a Thing Called Love

As ya’ll may know by now, I listen to songs obsessively. Right now, I have a whole list of songs I’m listening to obsessively. Oh, you want to know which songs? Let me oblige:

Silvia, by Miike Snow

Undercover Martyn, by Two Door Cinema Club

Cry Like a Ghost, by Passion Pit

Bullfighter Jacket, by Miniature Tigers

The Tron Soundtrack

The Boxer, by Mumford and Sons

We Built This City, by Starship

Midnight City, by M83

And of course, our song of the day:

I Believe In a Thing Called Love, by The Darkness

English: Intertitle from the AMC television pr...

Sorry that I only linked up one song, but I’ve got homework to do and only so much time before the need to watch the Premier of season 3 of Walking Dead overwhelms me. Speaking of which, who watches Walking Dead?! If you don’t, you should. RICKTATORSHIP!

So some of you may know this song of the day, it was in a phone commercial a few years ago, and you may have heard being shouted from the white Prius’s of 16 year old girls and their friends.

But fear not! It is a song for all ages, even if you drive Silverado’s! Well, maybe not Silverado’s . . .

Justin Hawkins in Ankkarock festival

Justin Hawkin’s sang a great song when he and his buds created this song. Also, can we just appreciate this picture of him for a moment. Ok, that’s great.

So the song: It’s just so addicting! His falsetto is really ridiculous, but oh so fun to sing along to. Go ahead, give it a whirl. You won’t be sorry. But your friends might when you’re singing it off-key later.

These guys seem like they are straight out of the ’80s, but oddly enough, this song didn’t come out until early 2000’s, so that’s a curve ball for you. But then again, they are British, and I’m fairly certain that England is about 10 years behind the curve. So there’s that. . .

But listen to it, love it, and you’re welcome. Ha! Thanks guys, talk to you soon!

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.

Miniature Tigers

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!

White Rabbits and White Rabbits

Guess what guys?! I’m in a fantastic mood because even though I spent a bunch of money on textbooks, Amazon gave me 5$ for music! Wooooo!!

Is anyone curious what I spent it on? Oh, did I already spend it? Yes. That’s a big yes.

I bought:

Home, by Philip Philips (because it sounds exactly like Mumford and Sons, and I love them)

Safe and Sound, by Capital Cities (who I’ve posted about, and also put it in my favorite songs list)

Kangaroo Court, by Capital Cities

Climbing Walls, by Strange Talk (who I’ve posted about)

Weights and Measures, by Dry the River (who I’ve posted about, and also put it in my favorite songs list)

Now, you may be thinking, Why didn’t she buy Passion Pit’s Gossamer?

You see, that’s a good question. Now I’m not saying that one of my friends has it and that I may or may not indulge in music sharing, but I am saying that I have other means to get that album.

Regardless of file-sharing, or as the case may be, not file-sharing, I have a song of the day! And here it is:

White Rabbits

Temporary, by White Rabbits

In some ways, this song reminded me of Miike Snow, who I LOVE! But in a lot more ways, The White Rabbits have a very unique sound. For example, the altered guitar at the beginning, I think it sounds super cool! As well as the dual vocals they put in there.

Their music video, though, might just give me a seizure. If you have

epilepsy, do not watch this music video. But do listen to the song! These little guys need more fans, I think, because they’re great!

Also, there was a minute of confusion when I tried to find them on facebook. Apparently there’s “White Rabbits” and also “The White Rabbits.” Will the real White Rabbits please stand up?

English: This is a Ruby-eyed White English Angora

Here they are: facebook

And here’s a white rabbit:

Keep it up!
