I was talking with a friend last night about music. I know, that’s so unlike me. He was saying that he was amazed that he’s not sick of Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People yet, even though he hears it once or twice a day where he works. It’s an okay song. The lyrics are actually really dark for how catchy and and uplifting the beat is. I have a few of these songs and I figured I’d share them here.
My Poor Housemates
Two songs that were my first song of the day for a long time were 99 Problems by Jay-Z and The Imperial March from Star Wars. I would wake-up, everyday, double click, jack up the speakers and start walking downstairs for my morning coffee, letting my housemates know I was alive. I did this for a while, like way too long. These songs were like my entrance music to my day. These songs prepared me for being awesome at life.
I Have No Idea
I’m pretty sure that Fight Club did just as much for The Pixies as Kurt Cobain. I might be wrong, but I know that my on-again, off-again relationship with The Pixies went to a whole new level when I heard this song during the closing credits. I was finally ready to make that commitment to them and tell the world that I LOVE THE PIXIES!
I Gotta Launder, My Karma
I just love this song. It really hits all the music bases, stealing from electronica, funk, rap & brit-pop. There really is something here for everyone.
If you had to listen to 3 songs everyday, for the rest of your life, what would they be? Maybe I’ll start a series on some our favourite songs. Maybe I’ll make a playlist out of them 😉
