6 Songs Worth Listening to!! (if you don’t already know them, shame on you!)

1. ‘Spanish Sahara’ by Foals (no, not the Foals – just Foals)

I discovered this song thanks to the spoiler for the Skins season 4 finale (and it was about the only good thing to come out of the end of season 4 seeing as the writers all quite obviously had aneurisms or something). I heard a clip of the song and loved it so I searched it out (and believe me it took a while). The song takes quite a while to really get built up and pumping but it gets really good from around 3.30 mins. So if you’re an impatient person (tisk tisk) then skip forward.


2. ‘Blindness’ by Metric

Metric came to one of the festivals I went to last year and unfortunately I didn’t get to see them (even though I didn’t really know who they were I was going to go and see them) because one of my friends had an emotional break down… possibly related to alcohol, but I don’t think so. So I was sitting in the medical tent with her… except I was talking to another friend who was coincidentally in there at the same time with his friend that was so spaced out on pills it was funny – my friend was pissy at me for no reason so I stayed out of her way in there). Anyways. I became addicted to this song while I was away in Asia. It’s pretty awesome. Once again though, it doesn’t really get into the full swing of things until around 1.55 mins.


3. ‘Disintegration’ by Jimmy Eat World

Another song that I became addicted to whilst on my Summer trip to Asia, but not as well known as some of their other songs such as ‘Sweetness’, ‘The Middle’, ‘Bleed American’, or ‘Work’. This one is definitely a keeper though. Once again there’s about 1.20 mins of build up (I’m noticing a bit of a trend in my song choice at the moment). This one can be played over and over again repetitively with nothing else for at least 3 days straight and you still won’t be sick of it.


4. ‘The Girl’ by City and Colour

I saw Dallas Green (aka City and Colour) a couple of years ago at our version of an emo/rock festival (the only one we have). He was singing with his other band Alexisonfire as well, but I went to watch him sing his acoustic songs as City and Colour. I actually didn’t know his work that well at the time, but my ex boyfriend from year 10 who I had randomly been getting along with again at the time had told me about him and how he had wanted to see him. So I went to watch him perform and to phone my ex when this song came on. Unlike the others on this list, this song isn’t one  of the lesser known ones – this is his most famous song. Mainstreeeeeeam.

This video is the new one, but if you get the soundtrack of it, after the faster section at the very end (where they play the credits), it goes onto another section which is more whiny , but awesome. Make sure you watch this video to the end though.


5. ‘LG FUAD’ by Motion City Soundtrack

This is an all time danger to catchiness – it’s the catchiest song and once you’ve listened to it a couple of times, it is guaranteed to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. It is pure gold though. I saw this live last month and it was amaaaaazing! I became addicted to this song last year and it became like a motto to me, so I was hanging out to see it live. It was so worth it. I’ve even converted some of the girls at college into lovers of the song. And yes, they were singing it all day. One of those girls pointed out to me the other day (and I’d never realised this before) what the song name meant – it’s the initals for “Let’s Get Fucked Up And Die”. The video clip is pretty awesome too.

6. ‘(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To’ by Weezer

This song is catchy and I’d never paid attention to these guys until I saw this song on the Asian version of MTv while I was away. I’ve heard of them before, because one of my friends is a dedicated hard core fan, and they seem like a group of jokers that like to do spoofs of things at the same time as make really great music. But this song will get stuck in your head as well if your not careful.

And that’s it kiddies. In the words of Motion City Soundtrack:

I want to thank you for being a part of my forget-me-nots and marigolds and all the things that don’t get old..”
