"It's Alright, It's OK" by Leah Andreone
"Seven deadly sins, seize the hour seize the day."
Easily one of my favorite lines from all songs.
"Running" by No Doubt
This is one of my favorite songs. When I first heard it, I would listen to it incessantly for car rides to and from wherever.
"Don't let me fall out of love"
I remember reading Bono opine on what makes a good love song. One of those love-themed numbers that really captures something. One part of his answer was that it had to be bittersweet in some respect. I think he referred to U2's "The Sweetest Thing" by example. "Running" reminds me of this as it is hopeful and love-entwined but just a little troubled by an injection of doubt. Lines like "Do you think we'll make it?" and "Keep holding my hand so we don't get separated." are a little bitter, a little wondering whether it will hold. And that is the essence of bittersweet – a song that could be too sappy and otherwise ignored, except for the tinge of bitterness that brings a great flavor.
I love it.
"Push" by Matchbox Twenty
Just another great tune from one of my favorite albums (Yourself Or Someone Like You).
"You" by Breaking Benjamin
A good beat – slower at times but electric and still powerful. I would classify this song as more mellow than other "heavy" music I occasionally listen to.
"Promise me you'll try to leave it all behind..."
Music tends to get me working faster and working happier. Truly.
"Who Are You" by The Who just came on. My toes are tapping.
"Little Sister" by Jewel
"We've got to start feeding our souls..."
"My little sister is a zombie in a body..."
A calm acoustic gem.
"Too Far Gone" by Sixpence None The Richer
"Why do I do this to myself, there's really no one else to blame. So could you reach down and pull me out or am I just too far gone to be saved, or am I just too far gone to be saved..."
"Bleed Like Me" by Garbage
I've commented on this one before. Such excellent lyrics.
"Hey baby, can you bleed like me?"
"Du Hast" by Rammstein
"Du. Du Hast. Du Hast Mich."
Mmmm... German industrial music. So gripping.
(No other thought-provoking music came on thereafter to provoke additional responses.)
