If you look hard enough, there is a list of many favorites from the creator of Immortal Music on this website. However, the list is always subject to change, and there's been some new ones that haven't been actually added to the list. Not to mention, a person's favorite songs can tell you a lot about them, so I thought it would be fun to list my favorite songs. If you're interested, read on -if you're not, well, you probably didn't even click on this. Without further ado, let's begin.
None of these are really explained, because it is just best to assume that they speak to me on some personal level. I also feel compelled to mention that this list is in no particular order. This is just the order that they came to mind. Also, there's definitely more that did not make this current list.
1. Scars by Papa Roach
2. Skeletons by Papa Roach
3. Stay Awake by All Time Low
4. All I Want by A Day To Remember
5. All Signs Point To Lauderdale by A Day To Remember
6. Sometimes You're The Hammer, Sometimes You're The Nail by A Day To Remember
7. Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace
8. Legacy by Memphis May Fire
9. Break by Three Days Grace
10. Hold on by the Jonas Brothers
11. Alive by Adelita's Way
12. Best I can by Art Of Dying
13. Breathe Again by Art Of Dying
14. Let It Go by Idina Menzel
15. Until The End -by Adam Gontier
16. Unity by Shinedown
17. Broken As Me by Papa Roach
18. I Hate Everything About You by Three Days Grace
19. Weightless by All Time Low
20. Somewhere In Neverland by All Time Low
Scars by Papa Roach has been the number one favorite for several years now because its true, my weakness is that I care too much, and our scars remind us that the past is real, not something we just made up. A lot of people forget the fact that not all scars are pyschical, and just about everything shapes our lives. Most of my favorites are inspiring or enpowering in some way.
However, a couple on that list are neither inspiring or empowering. "I Hate Everything About You" by Three Days Grace is the most realistic love song there is and it makes me think of my best friend, because after the second time we saw Three Days Grace live we started quoting it to each other nearly every time we see each other. At that show, we were screaming the lyrics basically in each others ears, and it just stuck.
Then there's "Skeletons" by Papa Roach. That's a newer song, but from the moment I heard the opening line of the chorus, my jaw about hit the floor. I have said for a very long time that I had this 'wall' up, and was shutting people out in a romantic sense. We've always chalked it up to not wanting to get hurt, and being too cynical for love, but there may be other reasons as well. At some point, we'll explain, but this song perfectly defined me. "Brick by brick, I built this wall. I shut you out to break the fall. I will shed my sins, we all have our skeletons. One by one, we cast our stones. Flesh and blood, and broken bones. I will shed my sins, we all have our skeletons." At the moment when I heard this, I was trying to break down the metaphoric wall, that only I had really ever spoken of before. This song was one of those songs that perfectly said what you were feeling, at just the right time.
If I had to choose the top five all together though, they would be as follows;
1. Scars -Papa Roach
2. Weightless -All Time Low
3. All I Want -A Day To Remember
4. Skeletons -Papa Roach
5. Unity -Shinedown
Just like the other list, the order for these is almost always subject to change. I cannot even say if that is the proper order for them, but that's how they got written out for today.
