(Boring blurb about the weather): This past week was such a tease. It was freakin’ gorgeous out all week I had to froyo twice. We’re back in the 30s today… I guess I’ll take it over negative 30.
So here it is, the post about my five favorite songs. It’s finally happening. In reviewing the list, I realized that this is not a very good reflection of my actual musical tastes. I’d like to think I’m a bit more hipster/interesting/less pop-y than these songs get at, but these are my classics. Also I’m probably not even hipster at all, so it’s cool. Also x2, these are in no particular order. I am also able to say that I’ve seen all of these artists live, which is fun.
1. Just So You Know – Jesse McCartney
Oh how I miss the old JMac. Now he’s got some weird stuff going on. This song was off his second and least successful album. However, I’ve been listening to it on repeat since freshman year of high school. I used to listen to it and pretend it fit with my life situations… awk. #teenangst
2. What I Know – Parachute
Out of my general obsession with Parachute, it always comes back to this song. I’ve seen it performed live close to 8 times now and it’s always my favorite. The best is listening to it really loud in the car. On a side note I am meeting Parachute in less than a week! My roommate Alyssa and I are going to their concert this Saturday with Gavin Degraw and have meet and greet passes, nbd.
3. The Gambler – Fun.
I am basing this list of off songs I’ve known for a long time and can still listen to them on repeat. I used to look up different versions of this song on YouTube and spend hours watching different performances. (I guess I had a lot of time on my hands?) I even wrote a blog post about it on my old blog (really long time ago). I also never lose a chance to tell people that “I knew Fun. before they were popular; I saw them open for Panic At the Disco”). Annoying, I know.
4. For the Moments I Feel Faint – Relient K
Had to throw in some Jesus music. This one is a good uplifter on a sad day or I’ll listen to it when I’m nervous for something. A good reminder that everything will be okay.
5. The Sun Will Rise – Kelly Clarkson
I knew I wanted to pick a Kelly Clarkson song but struggled because there are so many good ones. I settled on this one, although it’s not super old. I think it’s my favorite… but also A Moment Like This is KC classic.
I went on a brewery tour for the first time last Friday. It was interesting even though I’m not an avid beer drinker. It kinda looked like it could be a good set for a horror movie. They made us wear safety goggles and had free samples. It was G times.
