Haha I don’t know why I’m laughing so hard at this request right now but I am. All right, here goes, answers to all 30 of the music asks…(*inhales deeply*)
- A song you like with a color in the title: "Yellow"- Coldplay. Parachutes was such a good album *cries because now their albums are shite*
- A song you like with a number in the title: "Neighborhood #3" by Arcade Fire. (Prepare to see a lot of AF on here…)
- A song that reminds you of Summertime: "Crooked Teeth" - Death Cab for Cutie
- A song that reminds you of someone you’d rather forget about: "Bottom of the River" - Delta Rae…what happens when you date someone who also blues danced with you.
- A song that needs to be played LOUD: Gaaaah this has to be a tie between Arcade Fire’s “Sprawl II” and The Strokes’ “Reptilia”. Both are amazing songs to blast.
- A song that makes you want to dance: "Bust Your Kneecaps" - Pomplamoose (blues dancing, of course…)
- A song to drive to: "Dashboard" - Modest Mouse
- A song about drugs or alcohol: "Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?"- The Arctic Monkeys
- A song that makes you happy: ”Aberdeen” - Cage the Elephant. One of my favorite memories with my mom involves this song. When driving down to Oberlin we were listening to Thank You Happy Birthday and we had been silent for most of the trip. Then this song came on and we both looked at each other and just started belting the song out at the top of our lungs. Good times.
- A song that makes you sad: "Afterlife" - Arcade Fire. I can honestly say that this song was the first to bring tears to my eyes when hearing it. Perhaps it was because I was going through a bad break-up at the time and wasn’t faring well, but even now I hear it and an overwhelming feeling of sadness. I mean, it’s a song wondering about what happens to love once it’s lost. Of course it’s going to make me sad.
- A song that you never get tired of: "Take Me Out" - Franz Ferdinand. God the song is so catchy and I haven’t gotten sick of it yet.
- A song from your preteen years: If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I had 0 music taste in my preteen years. I basically liked what everyone else liked at the time. With that said, it would probably have to be “Let’s Get it Started” by the Black Eyed Peas (good times, guys, good times…)
- One of your favorite 80’s songs: "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" - The Smiths.
- A song that you would love to play at your wedding: Oh god do I have to think this far in advance? (2 hours pondering later…) probably “Sway” by Rosemary Clooney
- A song that is covered by another artist: The immediate one that comes to mind is Johnny Cash’s rendition of “Hurt”. What a gem.
- One of my favorite classical songs: Frederic Chopin’s Nocturne in E Flat Major, Op. 9, No.2. I played the piece for my senior piano recital and I’ve never heard a more calming and relaxing piece such as this one.
- A song that you would sing a duet with on karaoke: Does Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” count? Can I have the whole bar sing along with me, not just one other person?
- A song that came out the year you were born: I somehow have an extreme sense of satisfaction that “What is Love” (Haddaway) came out the year I was born.
- A song that makes you think about life: Well, shit… “Map of the Problematic”- Muse
- A song that has many meanings to you: "In the Backseat" - Arcade Fire
- A favorite song with a person’s name in the title: "Katherine Kiss Me" - Franz Ferdinand
- A song that moves you forward: "Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice)" - Arcade Fire
- A song that you think everyone should listen to: "Secret Door" - Arctic Monkeys. That song is an absolute must.
- A song by a band you wish were still together: "I’m Not Okay (I Promise)" - My Chemical Romance
- A song by an artist no longer living: "Tranquilize" (technically by The Killers, but Lou Reed is featured in the song and it makes me miss him)
- A song that makes you want to fall in love: "Night Drive" - Jimmy Eat World
- A song that breaks your heart: Haven’t we done enough depressing songs? I think here is where I put “How Soon Is Now?” - The Smiths.
- A song by an artist whose voice you love: "Love is Blindness" - Jack White. I think it’s the emotion that he sings with that gets me. I could listen to him all day.
- A song that you remember from your childhood: "Beautiful Day" - U2. My mom always played U2 in the car when she took me to school in the mornings and those are the songs that resonate with me to this day.
- A song that reminds you of yourself: Oh god, well this one is tough…probable “Test On My Patience” - Dead Sara. That song represents all that is pent up in me that I refuse to show anyone other than my closest friends.
Sorry for stretching the dash…but there you have it. 30 songs. Hope you enjoyed!
