SOTD @adamlambert - Sleepwalker

This song, from Adam Lambert’s debut album For Your Entertainment (the title track from which being the song that he performed at the AMAs which caused all the controversy) was co-written by Ryan Tedder (of OneRepublic, co-writer of songs like ‘Apologize’ and ‘Bleeding Love’, written for Leona Lewis (which was also co-written by Jesse McCartney, but the less said about him the better)) and, like many Ryan Tedder songs, breaks your heart in the best possible way. If this song had been around for me immediately post-breakup, you KNOW it would have gone on the playlist.

(Yes, I did make a breakup playlist. You KNOW none of you are surprised. I make playlists for EVERYTHING.)

I’ve been listening to this album pretty much non-stop since Christmas Day. I must have listened to it somewhere in the region of 30-40 times and I’m so very much not bored of it yet. I figure I’ve got another couple of months.

SOTD: The Cure – Burn

"Just paint your face" the shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
"Oh it doesn't matter how you hide
Find you if we're wanting to
So slide back down and close your eyes
Sleep a while you must be tired... "

SOTD: Gin Blossoms – Follow You Down

A little blast from the past today – think I might go a bit retro for the rest of the week….
jinks: (Travie heart)
SOTD: Drake Bell – Up Periscope

This is one of the best songs ever, okay? It just IS.

I don’t know if any of you ever watched Drake and Josh on the Nickelodeon channel? Drake Bell is that Drake. It's awesome.

Lyrics are here.

(I recommended to my 11 year old niece that she listen to this song, which I think makes me the worst Godmother ever, but she was singing the GaGa song with the Disco Stick lyric in it! I panicked!)
jinks: (Pete and Patrick rock the vote)
SOTD: @johncmayer – Waiting On the World to Change

After the clusterfuck that was the vote in NJ yesterday (and after DC and NH I’d started to hope again – silly me) I’ve been listening to inspirational songs all day. This one I can’t help but like, because it does help.

“It’s not that we don’t care – we just know that the fight ain’t fair, so we keep waiting, waiting on the world to change”
jinks: (GCH in white room)
SOTD: Gym Class Heroes - Peace Sign/Index Down

In September 2008, I saw GCH live for the first time. I got robbed and punched in the face by 12 year olds with knives while waiting in line (gotta love London), made some amazing friends, got one of Matt McGinley's drum sticks (because the security guard felt sorry for me because of the whole getting punched thing), met the band, and it remains one of the most amazing gig experiences of my life. Half the gig I couldn't even sing along, I was smiling so hard.

From the first moment I heard this song on the album, I knew the atmosphere when it was played live would be amazing. And it was; the entire venue had a buzz to it that can't be put into words.

This whole album is amazing, I could - and did - listen to it ten times in a row. You should too.
