Earworm: “Old Yellow Bricks” by Arctic Monkeys

You look a bit miffed.

Okay, if you’ve been following for a while…

Hold on, wait, damn, I start a lot of my posts this way.

Whatever.

You’d know that I’m Filipino (not exactly proud, but I’d say it if you specifically asked for my ethnicity. If you ask what am I, I’d say an American. Again, not proudly. I’d love to be English, lots of people would love to be English). [Keep reading after the break to find out what the hell I’m going on about!] (more…)

Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #3 “Yesterday” by The Beatles

Oh I believe, in yesterday…

The Beatles need to be on everyone’s good music list in some way or another (excluding of course, the bad sections). The originators of what I like to call the ‘hot-Brits-take-over-America-by-music’ movement, they definitely make my Top 30 List. My dad was a huge fan of The Beatles growing up, and I’m a fan now, too.

This ballad is so heart-wrenching and genuine, and, it was actually voted Best Song of the 20th Century!

I love it.

Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #9 “Come on Eileen” by Dexys Midnight Runners

How old school can you get?

I remember on long roadtrips in my dad’s blue Ford Focus wagon listening to this song every hour on the hour. We had, ¬†like, 3 CD’s, all mixed by The Big Cheese.

I blame him for all the old music that’s been doused down my throat.

This is one of my favorites, though. Really reminds me of my childish childhood.

And, what’s goofier than a bunch of English peeps in overalls performing some pop-rock/celtic-rock?

THERE’S A BANJO, TOO.

 

Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #22 “Undercover Martyn” by Two Door Cinema Club

One of my favorite artists of all time, a song off one of my favorite albums of all time, on my list of top 30 favorite songs of all time. Bravo, Two Door Cinema Club.

Indie music just makes me relax and feel really good about myself, inspiring me to be creative, something a lot of other music genres don’t do for me. Rap can make me laugh, but a lot of the time it just makes me want to venture out and do something outrageous. Rock music is for when I want to rock out, it’s that simple.

This song is really upbeat and calm, a definite upside.

Enjoy.

Oh, I don’t understand the music video, either. Have fun deciphering this, readers.

Earworm: “Many of Horror” by Biffy Clyro

Ah, Biffy Clyro. The band with the mystery name.

Now, you all know by now that I love the Northern Irish band Two Door Cinema Club. Biffy Clyro is a trio of Scots, and I love their music, too.

This here song, Many of Horror, is one of their most popular, and there’s no questioning as to why.

*On a side note, I’m really hoping you guys see that Kaley Cuoco commercial. A, it’s hilarious. B, she is fine as all¬†hell.*

Earworm: “Paradise” by Coldplay

A really good mix of electronic beats with Chris Martin’s soothing Brit-rock voice. Can’t be beaten.

It’s been played to death by the radio, but it still has a place in my music library. I still love this song. Damn.

Some special meaning behind this post, as well. I’m posting this about 4 days after the 1st anniversary of the release of this amazing song.
