day 15 - a song that describes you
Okay, before I name the song, let me give the explanation/disclaimer.
I don’t sit here and thing “Omgz he totes wrote this about me!!1!” and I don’t mean to sounds conceded by saying “Yes. This song describes me. Every last word.” I post it more because I feel like I’m currently at a stage in my life where I feel like I’m all grown up. And I feel like I’ve been through a lot, and I credit myself with it. But at the same time, I complain, and I bitch and moan and I cry just like a child when things just get too overwhelming. And while I may feel like I’m this great independent woman, who works all day, pays her own bills, find her own ways, I still have my breaking points.
Just Like A Woman - Bob Dylan
*I’d also like to say how challenging this 30 day challenge has been for me. Often times I stop and think “This song fits me so well” or “This song reminds me of *verbatim one of the 30 days*” But when it comes time to post, my mind is a total blank. I like it.
day 14 - a song that no one would expect you to love
I couldn’t think of something to post for today. I rattled my brain about it for a while. I was about to admit defeat. I went to my music player to search for this soundtrack to play as I slept. Then it dawned on me.
The Kingsroad - Ramin Djawadi (Music from the HBO Series)
I actually really enjoy movie scores/TV show scores. I can’t explain why. Actually, my main ringtone is the opening score to Game Of Thrones. The music is just so epic, and the fact that these scores, alone with no lyrics, tell a story… it’s just fascinating, and I love it. Okay, nerd rant over.
day 12 - a song from a band you hate
I feel like I have to redirect you to day 02. I’m not going to post anything on my Tumblog I don’t like, especially an audio, when I listen to my StreamPad pretty frequently.
And, similarly to day 2, I don’t have bands clearly labeled “bands I hate”. Why? Because, for starters, I don’t really contemplate on music I don’t like. If I don’t like it, I don’t listen to it, and if I’m forced to, I’ll give a small “Ugh” and move on with my life. I mean, I don’t like teeny booper bands, I don’t really like “boy bands”. I have a hard time liking female bands, although I couldn’t tell you why… I don’t know, I guess more specifically, it’s singular songs I don’t like, rather than entire bands themselves.
And then there’s Nickelback. Bless them, and their awful repetitive themes, cliche lyrics, and stereotypical sound.
day 11 - a song from your favorite band
Us and Them - Pink Floyd
I just opened up all my Pink Floyd and put it on shuffle. There was no way I was going to be able to pick just one song. :)
day 10 - a song that makes you fall asleep
Outside The Wall - Pink Floyd
Rockabye Baby company, that makes lullaby version of rock music would agree with me. By the way, if I ever have children, I’m so getting the Pink Floyd Rockabye Baby cd. Just saying.
And I would also like to take this time to make point of the whole “Isn’t this where” spoken at the end of the song, and the “… We came in?” in the beginning of “In The Flesh”. But I’m sure all my Pink Floyd fan followers were already aware of that one :)
day 09 - a song that you can dance to
One Of My Turns - Pink Floyd
I legit choreographed a dance to this song. It was awesome. In fact, I think I still remember it… brb.
day 08 - a song that you know all the words to
Peace Frog - The Doors
This is a result of having it on repeat for literally 4 hours once… I don’t wanna talk about it ;)
day 07 - a song that reminds you of a certain event
Your Ex-Lover Is Dead - Stars
I’m the last person you’ll hear reminiscing about high school. My high school experience was far from bad, it was far from uneventful, and it was far from miserable. But it’s in the past, and to me, it really wasn’t a turning point in my life. So, I rarely ever think back in it. In fact, there are just huge chunks where I don’t even remember it.
This song, however, still reminds me of my Senior year. I named it my senior year song, as a matter of fact. And I quoted it to myself quite often throughout the year.
Live through this, and you won’t look back.
I’m not sorry I met you. I’m not sorry it’s over. I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save.
This song is actually about two ex lovers that run into each other long after their relationship is over, and when both have moved on. They both admit the importance their time together, the difficulty of their separation, and the inevitable fact that they have moved on. In the beginning, the male says
All of that time you thought I was sad, I was just trying to remember your name.
So, let’s take out all the love aspect of it. I clearly went to high school, where important things clearly happened, and I was content for a majority of it. But shit happens, and it happened to me. And it was bad at times. But I graduated, and I got over it. And I’m glad it all happened, but I was glad when it was over, and now it’s a blur in my head.
day 06 - a song that reminds you of somewhere
Sam’s Town - The Killers
I don’t think you understand how accurately this song describes where I live right now.
Nobody ever had a dream ‘round here, but I don’t really mind that’s it’s starting to get to me. Nobody ever pulls the seam ‘round here, but I don’t really mind that it’s starting to get to me. I’ve got this energy beneath my feet like something undergrounds gonna come up and carry me. I’ve got this sentimental heart that beats but I don’t really mind that it’s starting to get to me now. “So why do you waste my time?” is the answer to the question on your mind. And I’m sick of all my judges, so scared of what they’ll find. But I know that I can make it, as long as somebody takes me home every now and then.
