If you like scary movies, do yourself a favor and watch the mini-series “Harper’s Island.” Terrifying and hauntingly satisfying. There are so many characters in that show that I love way more than I thought from the first episode! Darn you The Canadian for introducing me to that show!
Also, remember that great time that is so far gone when no one knew Fun.? And then they came out with “We Are Young” and suddenly everyone knew who they were. I mean, I went to their concert a couple years ago. And it was free! That’s how unknown they were. Just kidding, it was some kind of student concert at ASU and there was also Motion City Soundtrack, so it’s not like they couldn’t have made people pay for that. Anyways, I’ve been listening to their new album today, and I just keep thinking of a little kid with a new toy and he just uses it to death. That new toy is autotune. Why, fun., why? But in the song “Stars” I actually like it, I think because it’s so stylized.
So instead of doing a featured artist, I’m going to tell you what I’ve bought music-wise lately. Oh yeah, insight into my life. What music will I spend money on? Well, a small amount of money. I will only buy it if it’s a 99 cent album or a 25 cent song. So! In the spirit of college income (0$) here is what I’ve bought all this year:
25 cent songs:
Too Close, by Alex Clare
Tongue Tied, by Grouplove (one of my favorite songs right now)
It’s Time, by Imagine Dragons
Good Time, by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen (I’ll admit, this was mostly curiosity. I mean, that’s worth 25 cents right? Plus, it’s so catchy. Darn this song!)
Enter Sandman, by Metallica (I can’t believe I didn’t have this in my music library before now. I mean, a person has to have at least one Metallica song.)
Swimming in the Flood, by Passion Pit (One of my faves by them. Plus I had a 2$ credit with Amazon.)
Boomerang, by Miniature Tigers (I’ve talked about this before. My first post, actually. Good times.)
99 cent albums:
Some Nights, by Fun.
Katy Perry (Don’t judge me.)
Making Mirrors, by Gotye (Someone That I Used to Know is not their only good song. In fact, it’s not even their best song.)
Love is a Four Letter Word, by Jason Mraz
El Camino, by the Black Keys
My Head Is An Animal, by Of Monsters and Men
Ceremonials, by Florence + the Machine (One of the greatest female vocalists of our generation)
What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, by Regina Spektor (Another of the greatest vocalists of our generation)
Lights, by Ellie Goulding (My girl crush)
I also got a ton of free albums and songs because sometimes Amazon just rocks! But I’m not going to list those, because there’s like a billion. Also, every time I write Amazon I always want to put a ‘g’ at the end. There is no such thing as Amazong. If there was, it would be a verb.
But there it is. All my music purchases. Actually, that’s not true, I got an iTunes gift certificate for Christmas. Dang it! Maybe later.
