So, I saw a picture on Facebook asking 30 songs regarding music. I shared it on the page, one person did try to ask some specific questions, and I tried to answer but my phone spazzed out and deleted all my answers. Someone else had said they would like to see the answers to all the questions, so with those two things combined, I decided just to write it all down and share it here.
Also felt like I would take a moment to thank everyone for their support. I recently made a post celebrating ten years of the page, but I have since come to a realization. I cannot count. Its been 9 years, not ten. But I really liked the post the way it was, so I didn't want to change it. The Facebook page for this website is nine years old, while the website just turned eight yesterday. Since I so recently did the post for the website, I didn't feel like writing a whole other one. It felt like they would be too similar. I still felt like acknowledging it, so thank you so, so, so much for your love and support. You seriously have no idea what it all means to me, especially that some of you lost track and are now resurfacing and being just as supportive as ever.
Now enough with the cheesiness, let's get into this.
1. A Song With A Color In The Title-
My brain instantly went to 'Purple' by Pop Evil, but when I thought about it further I also thought of Black Cadillac by Shinedown.
2. A Song With a Number in the Title-
Song #3 by Stone Sour. Still don't know why they called it that, but its a very good song. And every time I think about it, I remember the video where Corey preformed it with his song. I'll leave that linked here for anyone who wishes to see that. It was so sweet to watch.
3. A Song that reminds you of summer time.
What's a song about sweating to death and hell? I'm kidding. Cool For The Summer by Demi Lovato? Probably sounds off genre for me, but fun fact I actually like a decent amount of her work.
4. A Song That Reminds You Of Someone You Would Rather Forget.
I don't really want to forget anyone exactly, but 500 Miles by The Proclaimers always reminds me of an ex because he played that one a lot. I do associate him with some pretty intense and dark stuff, so I guess that's sort of fitting. Just saying wanting to forget someone sounds really intense for me.
5. A Song That Needs To Be Played LOUD.
God, I could do a whole separate post on this one. Everything Asking Alexandria has ever done always seems to demand to be played loudly, Bow Down or Gasoline by I Prevail, Waking The Demon by Bullet For My Valentine. I could seriously go on forever.
6. A Song That Makes You Want to Dance-
None really, as I don't dance. But I guess I could say Lost In Stereo by All Time Low.
7. A Song To Drive To-
Pretty Handsome Awkward by The Used. I have so many good memories driving in the car with the band I used to manage, Remedy X as two of the members were really big fans of both The Used and My Chemical Romance. We'd roll all the windows down, and sing terribly at the top of our lungs, and it genuinely is one of my favorite memories with them, even though we did this often.
8. A Song about drugs or alcohol.
Is Don't Threaten Me With a Good Time by Panic! At The Disco about drugs or alcohol? I read this question and immediately thought of the line "Champagne, cocaine, gasoline and most things in between. " And the scenario in the song sure makes it sound like he had a wild night, so it seems fitting. If that one doesn't count, I'll go with Gone Forever by Three Days Grace, as that one personified Adam's drug addiction, and I have always found that to be incredible. Since it sounds like its about a person, not drugs.
9. A Song That Makes You Happy-
Don't laugh at me, but anything by the Jonas Brothers will make me happy. Well anything old by the Jonas Brothers. I don't hate Happiness Begins, but in my opinion its not their best album. If I have to pick just one song, That's Just The Way We Roll. If I really think about it I can definitely think of more songs by other bands, but that's what came to my mind instantly.
10. A Song That Makes You Sad-
I actually don't think I've ever addressed this publicly, though those in my personal life know about it usually. Photograph by Nickelback makes me bawl. Like I can't even hear the first few notes because I will cry. The reason for this is because it already had reminded me of my great grandmother who had Alzheimer, and then the universe really wanted me to hate that song and had it playing on the radio just moments after I was told my great grandpa had died. So, if you're ever trying to make me cry like a baby, that's a sure fire way to do it.
11. A Song That You Never Get Tired Of-
This is another one I could easily make a whole separate post on, because frankly there's so many. I Hate Everything About You by Three Days Grace, Tears Don't Fall or Waking The Demon by Bullet For My Valentine, just about anything from Shinedown or I Prevail, Scars by Papa Roach, most things by the Jonas Brothers or All Time Low. I seriously could go on forever.
12. A Song From Your Preteen Years-
Fly by Hilary Duff. Or, if you want one from when I was really little, 'Shape of My Heart' by Backstreet Boys. That song came out when I was seven and I loved it! I loved The Backstreet Boys so much as a kid, so they're generally very nostalgic for me.
13. One of your favorites 80's Song-
For some reason every song I tried to name was either made in the 90's or 70's. Maybe its because I was writing this just after waking up and not really sleeping much the night before, but I apparently can't think of anything.
14. A Song That You Would Love To Have played At Your Wedding-
When You Look Me In The Eyes by The Jonas Brothers. I have said this since the song was new, and it still stands to this day. Its so sweet, and adorable and I love it.
15. A Song That is A Cover by Another Artist-
Blank Space by I Prevail, Since U Been Gone by A Day To Remember -that one actually was the instance where I knew going into it that it was a cover. I think prior to that it was usually a surprise, or maybe it was just the first really good cover I had heard. I don't know. Also fun fact, everyone knows 1985 by Bowling For Soup right? Yeah, that's a cover. The original was made by SR-71, only a year later, and their version got popular when the original did not.
16. One of your favorite classical songs-
I apologize, I don't think I have one. Obviously I respect classical music, but its never been my cup of tea.
17. A Song That You Would Sing a Duet With-
I can't sing really, so I will name songs that are duets instead. Gravity by Papa Roach, the version of Breaking Inside by Shinedown with Lzzy Hale, If It Means a Lot to You by A Day To Remember.
18. A Song From The Year You Were Born-
I had to google it and apparently Stone Temple Pilots released their song "Plush" the month I was born, and it made it to number one on the rock charts at some point during the year. Or at least, according to some list I found.
19. A Song That Makes You Think About Life-
All I Want by A Day To Remember.
20. A Song That Has Many Meanings To You-
I thought of many songs that have a lot of meaning to me, but none that have multiple meanings to me, honestly. Like Scars by Papa Roach means a lot to me, so does Unity by Shinedown, All I Want by A Day To Remember, Drown by Bring Me The Horizon, One X by Three Days Grace.
21. A favorite song with a person's name in it.
Diary of Jane -Breaking Benjamin.
22. A Song That Moves You Forward-
Face Everything And Rise by Papa Roach.
23. A Song you think everyone should listen to-
Oh, there's so many. I'm going to go with Hurricane by I Prevail for now.
24. A Song by A Band you Wish Were still together-
I'm Here To Take The Sky by D.R.U.G.S. Wish they would have made more than one album.
25. A Song by An Artist that's no longer alive.
You Only Live Once by Suicide Silence.
26. A Song That Makes You Want to Fall In Love-
I already listed When You Look Me in The Eyes by the Jonas Brothers, so I'm going to also name I'll Follow You by Shinedown.
27. A Song That Breaks Your Heart-
Right now its Every Time You Leave by I Prevail, but that's just because its topical. It'll change again.
28. A Song by An artist with a voice you love-
Never Too Late by Three Days Grace.
29. A Song that you remember from your childhood.
Lucky by Britney Spears.
30. A Song That Reminds You of Yourself.
Scars by Papa Roach.
Well, that was fun. I hope you guys enjoyed this and if you do want me to either do more like this, or make actual lists like I mentioned previously, let me know. Also, please answer the questions for yourself!
