[We Intertwined--The Hush Sound]
To be honest, I'm not liking LiveJournal that much. There's not as many options and the site itself is convfusing. Ooh, but I do like this font!
Okay, so, I think it's apparent that I'm not blogging about anything major. I've all but given up on that idea. Instead I'll blog about nothing!
So. Onto the title. My good friend Lizzie has given me a marvelous idea: a summer playlist! I think the song I'm listening to now (We Intertwined) is definitely going to be on it. It's not my favorite song, but it's just so...summer. Love it.
1. We Intertwined by The Hush Sound.
What else? Well, I don't think many of my favorite bands (My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, Placebo, Blue October) would really work. SO LET'S CHECK OUT MY OTHER FAVORITE BANDS. Hummmmm....
Summer songs should be happy or have a relevant message, like We Intertwined. The bands shouldn't be dark or depressing. Something like Jimmy Eat World or Jack's Mannequin. OH, I got it!
2. Sweetness by Jimmy Eat World.
Again, not my favorite song, but it definitely fits.
[Sweetness--Jimmy Eat World]
Hmm, these songs aren't exactly the peppiest songs in the world. Summer is bittersweet at times, and other times it's all joy. I must find the most joyous song I can!
I considerd I'm Yours by Jason Mraz, but, though the song is certainly happy enough, the lyrics are pretty much entirely irrelevant to the idea of summer. I shall keep looking!
[I Dont Wanna Be In Love--Good Charlotte]
I'm thinking the summer love should tie in somewhere. Maybe I Don't Wanna Be In Love by Good Charlotte? It's a song you would hear at a seventh grade dance (trust me, I know this first-hand), and it has a happy undertone, even though it's about not wanting to be in love instead of more of a summer love. Oh well. It's in.
3. I Don't Wanna Be In Love by Good Charlotte
Now I definitely need a truly happy song, one that has no message other than jubilation (I love this word). Tough one.
OHEMJAY! BRILLIANCE! Fall Out Boy!!!
4. I Don't Care by Fall Out Boy
[Dance, Dance--Fall Out Boy]
I'm not sure about Soul Meets Body (Death Cab for Cutie) or Vindicated (Dashboard Confessional). They're just not really summer, you know? So no go on those two.
Coldplay is too slow and sweet to be summer. But maybe Cobra Starship...?
Cobra Starship can be a little flat at times, but there's a true party in every note. I don't think Good Girls Go Bad or The City is at War really work, so that leaves it down to Guilty Pleasure and/or Send My Love to the Dance Floor.
Hmm. Actually, I don't think any of those work. But I wanna include Cobra Starship...any suggestions? Wait, actually, I think I found one!
5. Send My Love to the Dance Floor by Cobra Starship
Oh my gosh, there is no question about the next one.
6. She Loves Everybody by Chester French
[She Loves Everybody--Chester French]
I think Britney Spears' style is very summer, but I can't think of a song from her that really embodies it. Womanizer is too off-topic, as is If U Seek Amy, and Circus is just not right somehow.
7. It's Still Rock and Roll to Me by Billy Joel
[The Best Damn Thing--Avril Lavigne]
I love this song, and I think it definitely works. Even if the lyrics are a little off, the spunky (yes, I said spunky) music makes up for it. Definitely.
8. The Best Damn Thing by Avril Lavigne
The only All-American Rejects song that's music is right would be Gives You Hell, and I love the song, but I just got so sick of it after hearing it 24/7. Heck, should I add it anyway?
There's always Alizee 0.o
9. Gives You Hell by The All-American Rejects
LADY GAGA! Of course. Nothing encompasses 'summer' better than Just Dance.
10. Just Dance by Lady GaGa
Wake Up Call (Maroon 5) is an amazing song, but it's just not right.
Id Engager (Of Montreal) is just a bit too...um...quirky to work. Don't get me wrong, I love the song (ohemjay rhyme!) but the theme isn't right.
OK Go! Invincible or Get Over It? How about both!
11. Get Over It by OK Go
P!nk and Panic! at the Disco are both names that include an exclamation point. They're also PERFECT.
12. So What by P!nk
13. Nine in the Afternoon by Panic! at the Disco
Numba 13 is the pure-happiness song I was looking for.What else?
On second thought, I think One of a Kind (PLacebo) will work. At least for moi.
14. One of a Kind by Placebo.
Queen is just too amazing for words. Every single one of their songs should go on this list.
15. Shut Up and Drive by Rihanna
16. Pon de Replay by Rihanna
17. Untouched by The Veronicas
18. I Hate This Part by The Pussycat Dolls
The music is perfect on this song.
Unfortunately, We the Kings is just a bit too somber for summer. I dunno, maybe?
Now for the ultimate dilemma: should I put Don't Trust Me, by 3OH!3, on the playlist? The song that was years old before it become famous? The song I love to death and used to play over and over again before I realized I was hearing it too much? Should I? SHOULD I?
19. Don't Trust Me by 3OH!3
Please suggest some songs YOU think should go on the playlist. I pinky-promise to check them out.
