Song of the Day

This song has been popping up A LOT on the old shuffle and I've stopped to listen to it every time.  Suppose I could give it some love.

You Suck At Love - Simple Plan
It's not like you're unpredictable, but your act is so believable.  I know it's nothing personal, it's just business as usual.  You're good at what you do.

Song of the Day

A Day to Remember snatching up the honor of song of the day with a late night swoop in.  I listened to this band on the way home from work and it just stood out to me.

Song of the Day

I said it a couple of days ago, Forever the Sickest Kids have the ability to make some pretty catchy songs.  I didn't even listen to this song and it still got stuck in my head.

2nd tally for Forever the Sickest Kids, 1st tally for Believe Me

Believe Me I'm Lying - Forever the Sickest Kids
I can write about a thousand songs to impress you, but I wouldn't want to do that.  I can make you feel the Queen of the world, but I won't.  'Cause you're full of imperfection.  This is coming from a third perspective.  All I'm saying is you need to be selective, this is coming from a gentleman with your needs in mind.  I've got his on the side.

Just discovered the Muppets tribute album and this one of standout songs for me.  I adore Rainbow Connection so I was happy to see a good singer cover it.

Song of the Day

I love Tom Delonge's voice, doesn't matter if it's Blink-182, Angels and Airwaves, or Box Car Racer.  I'm a sucker for these acoustic songs that lead up to an explosion of instruments.  Great buildup.

2nd tally for Box Car Racer, 1st tally for Letters to God

Letters to God - Box Car Racer
I won't lie, I won't sin.  Maybe, I don't wanna go.

Every Time I Look For You - Blink-182
More time apart will give you a few more months to argue.  Is this too much to live through?  It always seemed too far to drive the point home.  Send more letters, pray tomorrow ends up better.

Your Song - Four Year Strong
Everything means nothing and that nothing means everything to me.

Song of the Day

On a day where I added half a thousand songs on my iPod, none of them Fall Out Boy, Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy gets song of the day.  Go figure.

You need him, I could be him.  I coule be an accident, but I'm still trying and it's more than I can say for him.

Song(s) of the Day

It was a Punk Goes... type of day with a little bit of Blink-182 sprinkled in.  I still listened to some good old fashioned bitter break-up songs from Brand New, but don't have it in me to give them another song of the day.

1st tally for The Secret Handshake, 1st tally for I Wish

I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her.

Song of the Day

More Brand New?  Sounds good to me.  Three days in a row where Brand New has had a song of the day.  Your Favorite Weapon is so fantastic.  Music matches my mood and that makes for a powerful combination.

7th tally for Brand New, 2nd tally for Soco Amaretto Lime

Soco Amaretto Lime - Brand New
You're tearing up your photos 'cause you wanna forget.

Song(s) of the Day

This is kind of why I'm happy my iPod got wiped out and I had to restore it.  It had gotten to the point, before, where I had to create playlists just to listen to my music.  I had to sift through all the funny and random songs on my iPod, now I just have the stuff I actually like.  Crazy notion, right?  I can just hit shuffle and enjoy all the kick-ass music.  This song came up randomly on a shuffle earlier and I must have listened to it 4 or 5 times in a row.  As is often the case with me, each day gets cut in half.  During the day, one song stands out, and then at night, another one does.  Brand New has been dominating my speakers the past few days and to be honest, Jude Law and a Semester Abroad could have been song of the day many many MANY times before this.  I like to post a line or two underneath each video; I could post the entire set of lyrics for this Brand New song.

4th tally for Good Charlotte, 1st tally for Counting the Days

Counting the Days - Good Charlotte
Two timing, you know it's not my style.  Three's company.

Song of the Day

Was sitting in traffic earlier today and needed a good band to pass the time.  Brand New shined through over everyone else.  I love their album Your Favorite Weapon.

I can't let you let me down again.

Song(s) of the Day

Very much into acoustic songs as of late.  Nice change of pace from screaming post-hardcore songs and hard-hitting rap tracks.  Then again, a little punk needs to get thrown in there as well.  Alkaline Trio has dominated my night since I have gotten home from work.

5th tally for Secondhand Serenade, 2nd tally for Your Call

Your Call - Secondhand Serenade
Everything you wanted isn't anything you have.

My Friend Peter - Alkaline Trio
I don't care who you've been kissing on these days, it's out of my hands and in my mouth with such a pleasant taste.  I need a beer to wash it all away without a trace and then I'll drink 23 more to wipe this stupid smile off my fucking face.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Song of the Day

One of my favorite songs, ever.  Definitely a track that, when you're in the right situation, can be immensely powerful to hear.  Even if you're like me and you get no personal spark when you hear this, it's still a phenomenal song.

7th tally for The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, 2nd tally for The Acoustic Song

The Acoustic Song - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Use me as you will, pull my strings just for a thrill.  And I know I'll be okay, though my skies are turning gray.

Song of the Day

I love that Blink-182 is back, but I'll forever be disappointed that (+44) never came out with a 2nd album.

5th tally for (+44), 1st tally for Baby Come On

Baby Come On - (+44)
The past is only the future with the lights on.

Monday, July 9, 2012

Song of the Day

I put hundreds of songs on my iPod today and listened to a ton of music, so you know if one song gets the honor of being the song of the day, it's earned it.  Definitely the case here.  An older Sugarcult song, but certainly an awesome one.

11th tally for Sugarcult, 1st tally for Drive All Day

Drive All Day - Sugarcult
Given up, I don't give a fuck.  I'm turning away.

Probably my favorite Childish Gambino song and the most upbeat suicide song you'll ever hear.

Today was supposed to be Childish Gambino's day, but All Time Low managed to steal the spotlight.

20th tally for All Time Low, 1st tally for Forget About It

Forget About It - All Time Low
There are some days where I really feel like this could work, like you and I are finally gonna get it right.  Then, there are days like today, when you make me wanna tear my fucking hair out.

Song of the Day

I don't know anybody who is all that good at this whole "love" thing, so this song is pretty accurate for everyone.  Plus, it's been stuck in my head.

11th tally for Simple Plan, 1st tally for You Suck at Love

You Suck at Love - Simple Plan
You're bad news, a history repeater.  You can't trust a serial cheater.  You're good at hooking up, but you suck at love.

Monday, July 2, 2012

Song of the Day

This song, Overwhelmed by Tim McMorris, is a background song for a Sam Adams commercial.  I never pay attention to commercials, but hearing this song caught my attention.  I really like it a lot.  There's only 2 videos for this song on Youtube.  One of them is from McMorris himself, but has some annoying Audio Jungle voice repeating itself over and over throughout the song.  This video is apparently some anniversary video a guy made for his girl, so I'm just going to post it because it has the song itself without the annoyance.

Overwhelmed - Tim McMorris
I am overwhelmed by you.

A Look at the 2012 MLB All-Stars

I am such a nerd, I know this.  I adore debating all-stars for any given league.  There's always someone voted in who didn't deserve it, someone who shouldn't be starting, and someone who got snubbed.  It makes for spectacular debating and just a fun time for a super nerd like me.  With injuries, schedule conflicts, and just plain not wanting to play, look for a lot more guys to be added in over the next coming weeks.  Those guys trickling in usually make up for the snubs, but I always look at them as the back-up all-stars, not quite on the level of the guys originally voted on.  The guys I shall be talking about, that is.

Song(s) of the Day

Lots of Childish Gambino today.  I love his style and lyrics.  Consider me a fan.  All Time Low was able to sneak in again, though.
