Music Shuffle

This time I’m supposed to put my music on shuffle and share the 10 first songs. So here is a look to my music taste.

  1. Georgia in a Jug – Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton is one of my favorite artists and my ultimate favorite country singer. This may not be one of my favorite songs from him but I still like it.

2. God Gave Me You – Blake Shelton

This is actually one of my favorite songs from Blake Shelton. It is so earnest.

3. Dawsons Geek – Busted 

Busted is one of my favorite bands from my youth. I still love them and was extremely happy when I learned that they had gotten back together. This is not one of my favorite songs but they have many great songs.

4. Good Country Song – Blake Shelton

I love this song because it reflects some of the reasons why I love country music. It’s different and it acknowledges that it’s not wrong to like a different genre of music than others.

5. Home – Blake Shelton 

I like this song, but I prefer the Michael Buble version. Although, be being sung by either of these men it brings the same feelings to the surface for me. The Michael Buble version just was my first connection to this song, so I guess that’s why I prefer it.

6. Nerdy – Busted

I like this song. When I was younger I didn’t know why I connected to this song so well, but now that I’m older and have let my inner nerd roam free I do. Although the song is about the pain of loving someone who does not appreciate the person being nerdy, I feel like I connect to this song. I am a nerd, not necessarily in the way the person in this song is, but some people still find being a nerd not attractive or don’t like nerds in general. I have embraced my nerdiness and couldn’t be happier.

7. What if it All Goes Right – Melissa Lawson 

To me this song is about embracing the moment and not worrying about the future. We make choices every day that influence our lives. Those chances make our life worth living. You should not be afraid of choosing a particular path just because it might be a mistake. I live my life with the philosophy that you regret the chances you didn’t more than those that you took and ended up being wrong for you.

8. I still Got a Finger – Blake Shelton 

This song reflected how I felt so well the last summer I worked at a local farm. My employer was such a bitch. I sometimes still feel like this when people are getting on my nerves, I just wanna say fuck this and give them the finger. So I love this song.

9. La vida al reves – Fran Perea

I found Fran Perea’s music while watching the tv-series Los Serranos. He soon became one of my favorite singers. While I do not listen to his music as much anymore, I still sometimes go back. It brings back memories of my youth. And they are one of the reasons I know any Spanish at all and wish to learn more.

10. Just Like You – Three Day Grace 

Three Days Grace is my go to band when I’m feeling pissed. The genre is perfect for blowing off some steam. I also like the songs and this song in particular. I think Just Like You was the first song I heard from the band and I was hooked from the first moment. I pride myself on being different and not fitting a mold. That’s probably why this song speaks to me.

 

10 Songs That I Love at the Moment

This time I am supposed to list 10 songs that I love at the moment, so here they are with some explanations.

 

1. Just Fishing – Trace Adkins

I love this song because of the feelings behind the song. It reminds me to enjoy the tiny moments that seem unimportant but end up being the most important.

I also created some more feels for myself connected to this song by connecting it to my character in our Doctor Who Role Playing Game. Basically I was creating the back story for the character and was thinking about their relationship with their father (who at the time of the game has been dead for several years) and thought that it would have probably been just like this song. Just spending time together not for a specific purpose but because it’s important. This relationship is the biggest reason my character is so balanced and comes to terms with the tragic death of their father so quickly.

2.The Good Stuff – Kenny Chesney

Another song to remind me about appreciating the small stuff in life. It is not about the successful job or amount of money you have but the people you love and the little moments you share with them. All the memories are worth so much more.

3.Little Bitty – Alan Jackson

I love this song because it resembles my attitude so much. I am small but I don’t care because it’s okay to be teeny. This song makes me feel better when I’m feeling down and brings a smile to my face every time I hear it.

4.Woman Like You – Lee Brice

This song appeals to the closet-romantic in me. Listening to this song makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. It also makes me smile when I listen to it so it is a great song. I also like Lee Brice as a singer so that makes the song even better.

5. This Ain’t Nothin’ – Craig Morgan

This song is a sad one. It makes me cry. But that is good, a song that can awake any emotion in me is worth listening to. The message of the song is also important. I like to think of myself as a person who does not worry over trivial things or things I can do nothing about. This song is a perfect example of that kind of mentality. Why care about losing material things if you have lost something or someone that’s more important.

6. Let Me Go – Christian Kane

I have actually listened to this song for years. I love it and I love Christian Kane. I don’t know if I can say anything else, I just simply love this song.

7. Meet You There – Busted

I think this is the first non-country song on this list. I found this song again just last summer and fell in love with the new version of it they recorded when they got back together. While they didn’t change it all that much, it still has a more mature sound now.

8. Don’t Blink – Kenny Chesney

This is another song to remind me to enjoy the little moments in life. Because life actually does fly by quite fast. It is important to enjoy the small moments that seem insignificant but end up being the most important. Like meeting a new friend or spending a day on the beach or anywhere with good friends or family. Sooner than you think those moments will be just a memory.

9. My Sentimental Friend – Herman’s Hermits

This is an oldie. I love these kinds of bands, Hermans Hermits, Beatles, The Kinks and many others. This song, even though it is a bit sad, usually makes me smile when I listen to it.

10. The World – Brad Paisley

This song makes me smile. It also appeals to the romantic living deep inside me. Let’s take a hypothetical situation. If I had a boyfriend I wish he would feel this way about me. Like I am his whole world. Appeals to the romantic in me but the realistic person I am I know it will not probably be like this.

Yet this is still one of my favorite songs from Brad Paisley.
