Songs I'm Currently Obsessed With, Plus A Few All-Time Favorites


Mai 20 2008, 20h21

I'm notorious for my dubious taste in music so feel free to ignore what I have to say.

For me, a great song is about more than a catchy tune or chorus, it's about lyrics that I can relate to. Most songs I like are either about love, relationships ending, or self-loathing. Those seem to be a theme in my life.

These are a few songs that I've been playing over and over lately:

I Wish The Best For You by Emerson Hart - The former Tonic front man put out a solo album late last year. I really like this song. For me, it's about getting over someone, which I've had to do a couple times.

The Truth, Don't Say A Word, Fall Back Into Me, and Silver by David Cook - I first became aware of David because of American Idol. (I'm a fantard, I admit it.) These songs are from his pre-Idol album that he put out on his own. He writes really great, deep lyrics.

Gotta Have You, World Spins Madly On, and Take It from Me by The Weepies - The Weepies are a recent find for me, and as I listen to them I find myself wondering why I didn't find them sooner. I'm head over heels for Gotta Have You. Such a sweet song.

Sky by Joshua Radin (feat. Ingrid Michaelson) - I've been a big fan of Joshua for a few years now, and I was excited to learn that he has a few new songs out. I love that he collaborated with Ingrid Michaelson on this one.

Starting Now and Die Alone by Ingrid Michaelson - I love, love, LOVE Ingrid Michaelson. One of my very favorite lyrics comes from Die Alone:

I'm just a stranger, even to myself.
A re-arranger of the proverbial bookshelf.

Reaching by Jason Reeves - I'd never heard of this guy until a few days ago. He sounds like a male Colbie Caillat, which isn't surprising considering he's a good friend of hers.

Lucky and I Love Myself Today by Bif Naked - This song is my new personal anthem. After years of hating myself, I've decided to start loving myself. The chorus says it all:

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm
I'm gonna be okay!

Pork and Beans by Weezer - WEEZER HAS A NEW ALBUM COMING OUT IN JUNE!! That thrills me! This song is off of it and I love it. Like the Bif Naked song, this one has also become a personal anthem for me.

Come On Get Higher by Matt Nathanson - I really love the first verse of this song:

I miss the sound of your voice
I miss the rush of your skin
I miss the still of the silence
as you breathe out and I breathe in.

I love this verse too:

I miss the sound of your voice
the loudest thing in my head
and I ache to remember
all the violent, sweet, perfect words that you said.

All Fall Down by OneRepublic - We all fall down at some point in our lives. When you fall, I'll be there to help you up.

Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová from the film Once - I absolutely love this song and the film it came from. I tear up every time I listen to this song.

Mushaboom by Feist - I get a warm, fuzzy feeling from this song. It's just too damn sweet.

Champagne High by Sister Hazel - This has been one of my very favorite songs for several years now. The line Where will I be when I stop wondering why? is one I can really relate to.

Unemployed Boyfriend by Everclear - This is such a fun song. I especially love the line:

Hey you can be with me
Yeah cause I just might be the one
Who will treat you like you're perfect
Who will always make you come

Okay, it's a gorgeous day here in KC (75F and sunny!), so I'm going to go listen to my obsessions outside! Hopefully after reading this, you'll find one or two songs that you enjoy as much as I do.
