Music Monday #1

We’re gonna have to restart all our themed days so here’s our first Music Monday!

Make Believe – Backstreet Boys

This song has been stuck in my head for a few days since I made a Polyvore set with the title we can only make believe which obviously is one of the lines in the song. I didn’t like it when I first listened to it but it has slowly grown on me.

If you’ve never heard of this Backstreet Boys song, that’s because it is one of the songs off their new album In A World Like This which is the bomb and if you haven’t already bought the album, I highly recommend you do so.

If you want to know what songs we were listening to most back in August, check out my post right here.

What have you been listening to? I’d love to find some new music to listen to.

Music we’re looking forward to

Here are some of our new favorite songs of 2013:

Hurricane – Parachute

When Hearts Go Crazy was released, initially we were like, Hmm, this song is okay but it doesn’t really sound like Parachute because the song is so remixed (is that what it is) that Will’s voice is barely recognizable.  When we heard the acoustic version, we were blown away by the rawness of Will’s voice and the arrangement of the song. Needless to say, we adore the acoustic version more than the album version.

Then Can’t Help was released and it’s so catchy that I was humming the tune after listening to it only once.  Then Hurricane came out a couple of days ago and we love it!! Okay, bottom line is, we love everything acoustic from Parachute – I mean, have you even heard Will’s cover of Gavin DeGraw’s Not Over You? Ugh, amazing – and we’re looking forward to their new album, OVERNIGHT, which is coming out August 12.

P.S: I can’t believe people say that Will sounds like Adam Levine. How does he even sound like Adam Levine? Admittedly, at first I thought that they sounded like Maroon 5 but after listening to their songs a few times, it’s obvious that Will’s voice is unique.

Moving on, we also love:

Feels Like Home – Backstreet Boys

Backstreet’s Back! And they are better than ever! I read a negative review about their new album In A World Like This (the album came out two days ago) and I was like, WHUT? This album kicks ass. Their harmonies are amazing, the instrumental parts superb and the lyrics much more meaningful. If they ever made a less-than-worthy album, it would definitely have to be This Is Us. Apart from Bigger, I really couldn’t appreciate any of the other songs. The record was dance-y and upbeat but it just didn’t do their vocals justice and the songs didn’t make much sense.

Kevin has been given bigger parts – his voice is so mysterious! – though Brian’s parts have significantly decreased. We still love you, Brian! Anyway, their album is amazinggg so go check it out, buy it, enjoy it. C and I agree that Feels Like Home is the Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) of IAWLT and it rocks! Our other faves include Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of, Breathe, Trust Me, One Phone Call, Soldier and Light On.

Tell us which songs you love most and don’t forget to Keep The Backstreet Pride Alive!

How can we forget Owl City?

Hey Anna – Owl City

I blame C for converting me into an Owl City fan. No, seriously. Before she changed my mind about his songs, I was like, Ugh, not this Fireflies crap again. I’m still not a fan of Fireflies but everything else, yes please!

Adam writes cutesy, whimsy songs that are relatable and his dreamy, electropop music just makes everything sound so good. And, he is a serial Tweeter. He can be seriously funny but don’t follow him if you don’t like your feed to be spammed. He does retweet A LOT. LOL.

His new album The Midsummer Station Acoustic is coming out sometime in the next few months so we’re waiting for that as well!!

If this post is a bit haywire, I apologize. Listening to music and writing a blog post about music doesn’t go well, LOL.

What songs are you listening to these days?

i wanna walk away too

The end of February marks the anniversary of our very first concert.

The first concert that we ever attended was the Backstreet Boys’ concert. Being huge BSB fans, we didn’t really have to persuade Mom to let us go to the concert. In fact, Mom wanted to go as well. See how it helps to have the same taste in music as your mom?  😀

It was one of the best days in my life even if we did have to stand in the rain for hours. My feet were aching at the end of the day and I think my voice was sore from all that screaming but going to a Backstreet Boys concert is really worth all the blisters and sore throats that follows after the concert. They’re the real deal, I’m telling you. You don’t go to their concert to listen to auto-tuned voices or lip-syncing or to be awed by extravagant backdrops or glitzy costumes. It’s pure vocal power.

I know the lyrics to all their songs except a few on their latest album This Is Us. Their style has somewhat changed since Unbreakable (my favorite album) and I can’t say that I dig their new music.

Hope they go experiment a little but stay true to their original stuff.

C and I celebrate our BSB concert anniversary annually by scribbling the date onto the posters we collected from the concert. Good times. 🙂
