30 days of music

Sort by: Showing 29 items
Rating: List Type:
I've made my own version of the 30 day song meme for a few reasons:
1. I don't believe in wasting energy thinking about bands and songs I don't like, nor would I want to find songs by said bands just for a list
2. I don't listen to the radio
3. I never feel guilty about liking a song

Strange Days - The Doors
Day 01 - Your favorite song


In my opinion this is the best song ever written, and it was written long before I was born. I found The Doors during my teenhood and they provided the perfect soundtrack for those years. At the time I embraced the words "music is your only friend until the end" as words to live by, and as I grow older and friends come and go it's remained true. Music has been there for me longer than anyone I've known besides my blood relatives, and it'll still be there for me when I'm old and grey. Comforting.

Broken - Nine Inch Nails
Day 02 - A song from your favorite band/artist


NIN has been my favorite artist since 1992. I could also have gone with a(nother) song by The Doors or Tripping Daisy.

Joe's Garage Acts 1-2-3 - Frank Zappa
Day 05 - A song that reminds you of someone


This song reminds me of the only ex-girlfriend I stayed friends with, partly because she introduced me to Zappa's music, partly because she was raised Catholic.

Numb - Baboon
Day 06 - A song that reminds of you of somewhere

"Give Me Something Real"

Lyrics...
Well I've read every book they wrote
They shoved them down my throat
But now I'm ready
Hey this university
It gives me what I need
And are you ready?

To go
To take
Over this whole

Lies and trash is what they serve
It's totally absurd
But now I'm ready
Hey this power that you crave
It just gets in the way
And are you ready?

To go
To take
Over this whole
Ready
To go
To take
Over this whole world
Give me something real
Thanks but no

Well I've read every book they wrote
They shoved them down my throat
And now I'm ready
Hey this university
It gives me what I need
And are you ready?

To go
To take
Over this whole
Ready
To go
To take
Over this whole world
Give me something real
Thanks but no....thanks

Baboon was a band from Denton, TX, formed while the members attended courses at the University of North Texas. This song was written about the singer's experience at UNT, which is where I graduated from. Therefore it reminds me of college.

Day 07 - A song that reminds you of a certain event


Reminds me of my first kiss, which happened while at a NIN concert in 1995 during their performance of this song.

Doesn't everyone?

To be honest, I know all the words to more songs than I could possibly list. Decided to go with this one though, because if you don't know the words you should.

Lights Camera Revolution! - Suicidal Tendencies
A song that describes you


Lyrics:
What the hell's going on around here?

First off-let's take it from the start
Straight out-can't change what's in my heart
No one-can tear my beliefs apart, you can't bring me

You ain't-never seen no one like me
Prevail-regardless what the cost might be
Power-flows inside of me, you can't bring me

Never-fail as long as I try
Refuse-to be a part of your lie
Even-if it means I die, you can't bring me

You...can't...bring...me...down!

Who the hell you calling crazy? You wouldn't know what crazy was if Charles Manson was eating Fruit Loops on your front porch....

Time out-let's get something clear
I speak-more truth than you want to hear
Scapegoat-to cover up your fear, you can't bring me

You ain't-never seen so much might
Fight for-what I know is right
What up-you got yourself a fight, you can't bring me

Stand up-we'll all sing along
Together-ain't nothin' as strong
Won't quit-we ain't in the wrong, you can't bring me

You...can't...bring...me...down!

Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
Bring me down-you can't bring me down, no!
Bring me down-you can't bring me down!
Bring me down-you can't bring me down, you can't bring me down!

Tell them what's up Rocky!

Chorus

So why you trying to bring me?
Well you can't bring me down...No, no, no, no
Can't bring me down....No, no, no, no, no, no
So why you trying to bring?
Well you can't bring me down

Just cause you don't understand what's going on don't mean it don't make no sense
And just cause you don't like it, don't mean it ain't no good
And let me tell you something;

Before you go taking a walk in my world
You better take a look at the real world
Cause this ain't no Mister Roger's Neighborhood

Can you say "feel like shit"?
Yea maybe sometimes I do feel like shit
I ain't happy 'bout it, but I'd rather feel like shit than be full of shit!

And if I offended you, oh I'm sorry...
But maybe you need to be offended
But here's my apology and one more thing...fuck you!

Chorus

Can't bring me down!

Suicidal!

Hello Nasty - Beastie Boys
Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate


I wouldn't really say I HATE it now, but I definitely got burned out on it and could go forever without hearing it again.

Doolittle - Pixies
Day 28 - A song that changed your music taste in some way


I first heard this song when a good friend introduced me to this album, shortly before the term "alternative" was coined to define a music genre. Nothing ever sounded the same after I heard it (and every song that followed it on the album).
