21st-Nov-2009 03:31 pm - I Should Be Writing A Paper
...but I'm gonna do this meme instead because I spend an obscene amount of time on my memes so this is a good time-waster and I'm too bothered to write the concluding paragraph of my criminology paper right about now (and that was totally a run-on sentence, oops).

This should probably be posted on my last.fm because it's based off of my charts there, but whatevs.

So, without further adeu...

Top 10 Artists for the last three months:

01. Passion Pit
02. Stars
03. Phoenix
04. Miike Snow
05. Islands
06. Vampire Weekend
07. Imogen Heap
08. La Roux
09. Santigold
10. Bloc Party

What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
I'm pretty sure it was A-Punk circa April/May 2008. I remember them being the musical guests on SNL and wondering who the fuck they were.

What is your favorite album of 2?
Probably Nightsongs just because it has such a calming effect on me, and it has my favorite song by them on it (On Peak Hill). In Our Bedroom After The War is a close second though.

What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
Can I choose Tender Torture as a whole? Because I would love if anyone ever said anything of that stuff to me, as sappy or cheesy as it would sound. Seriously, just look at some of these lyrics:

And I've seen some great things / But I don't want to see anything / If I can't see you / Kicked open a coconut / Could've shared it with anyone / But I wanted to share it with you

I'll be your strings / If you pluck them / I'll sing for you / And if your hands are feeling tender / I'll take them in my own and make them better.

How many times have you seen 4 live?
Not yet, but I will on March 27th! So unbelievably excited because I've heard that their live show is fantastic.

What is your favorite song by 7?
Headlock. I just love when the drums and bass kick in at about 1:12. The whole song has a creepy feel to it. It's stunning.

What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10?
Some time last semester, my roommate and I were getting annoyed at how loud our neighbors were being so I was looking through my music library to see what songs I could play that would annoy them (they listen to country and mainstream pop). I ended up blasting Flux at full volume on repeat for about 15 minutes and we had a mini-rave in our room, dancing and slapping the walls and door. Fun times.

Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
If I Ever Feel Better makes me kind of sad. I don't know why, but it's one of my favorite songs by them anyway.

What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung?
Ahhh, this is too hard. But, it'd probably have to be from On Peak Hill, of course:

I walk awhile before I sleep, count the secrets that I keep / I hope for more, I know for sure I fall apart before I weep / I disconnect the telephone, cause I can choose to be alone / I'll get more done, I'll have some fun, pretend you're not the only one

These lyrics got me through a tough time around August/September. I love this song to death.

What is your favorite song by 9?
My Superman. It has a haunting feel to it, which, if you haven't guessed by now, I absolutely love in songs.

How did you get in to 3?
I was really into Passion Pit (well, still am) and in May I downloaded Manners on the day it came out and decided to download Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix just to see how I liked them since I kept hearing that they were amazing (through blogs and whatnot). I listened to them a bit, but got heavily into them once they announced that they were playing with Passion Pit in September in Central Park.

What was the first song you heard by 1?
Sleepyhead. It was in January and part of the Indie/Rock Playlist that I downloaded through last.fm. I remember thinking that this song was so different from what I listened to at the time and that's why I loved it.

How many times have you seen 9 live?
Zeroooo, but hopefullly at least once in my lifetime.

What is a good memory you have involving 2?
Listening to What The Snowman Learned About Love for the first time on their album Heart (it's the first song) and realizing how amazing this band is. I was worried because I loved In Our Bedroom After the War and thought their other albums weren't going to live up to that one. I was pleasantly proven wrong.

Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
Definitely Cover My Eyes, which is self-explanatory if you look at the lyrics. Typical trying-to-move-on-but-can't song. Also, I'm Not Your Toy just because it reminds me of when I realized that I was wasting my time on a particular person.

What is your favorite album of 5?
Vapours! I haven't really listened to Return to the Sea or Arm's Way that much though so this could change.

What is your favorite lyric that 3 has sung?
From 1901: "Past and present, they don't matter now, the future's sorted out." Or, when he just sings "Fold it, fold it, fold it" just because everyone always thinks it's "Falling, falling, falling" but...it's not.

OR, from Liztomania: "Do let do let do let jugulate do let do let do" because singing it is fun.

What is your favorite song of 1?
It's a tie between I've Got Your Number from their EP, or Little Secrets from their debut album. I've Got Your Number sends chills down my spine when Michael sings "Have you seen me cry tears like diamonds?" Little Secrets is just way too much fun to dance to. It's the perfect pop dance song.

What is your favorite song of 10?
Signs, without a doubt. So utterly lovely. Chilling and haunting as well, which I love.

How many times have you seen 8 live?
None, I could've seen her at All Points West, but I missed her set because I wasn't really into her at that time in August. Fail on my part.

What is your favorite album of 1?
They only have one full-length out so I would have to with Manners. Chunk of Change is good, but Manners is much more cohesive and shows their true musicianship as a band...because, let's face it, Chunk of Change was basically written and produced all by Michael as a Valentine's Day gift to his girlfriend at the time. Manners actually includes the whole band.

What is a great memory you have considering 9?
I don't have one? I just remember all through the end of September and beginning of October turning on her album before I fell asleep for a couple nights in a row.

What was the first song you heard by 8?
Bulletproof. I remember the exact moment I heard it. I was at home watching mtvU and that music video came on and I was hooked. I looked up the lyrics while watching to figure out who it was and then was pleasantly surprised that she was going to be at All Points West.

What is your favorite cover by 2?
The only cover I know that they've done is This Charming Man by the Smiths. I actually like their version better. One of my favorites off of Nightsongs.

What is the last song you heard by 4?
I think I listened to Animal last night. Fantastic song.

I should've wrote down what time I started this. I think I wasted a good hour and a half. Time to finish my paper, then I will update on my life. Don't quote me on that though because we all know my track record with posting here...

Dear lj,

I haven't forgotten about you.

21st-Dec-2008 05:11 pm - On Cloud 9
All I really want to say is that I am in the best mood ever. Everything is going right with me, for once, and I feel fantastic.

Well, at least mentally, not really physically today. I think I'm definitely getting sick.


That is all.

I got this new layout from premade_ljs and I absolutely love it! It's like the story of my life.

In other news, I hate my car. End of story.
