Matchbox 20 – I Believe in Everything

I was going to post a favorite ending theme but then I thought y’all might not appreciate it as much until I put up my post about the anime we watch. Until then, here’s a Matchbox 20 song for you. Matchbox 20 has been one of my favorite bands since I heard Unwell. I can’t get sick of that song. It is the bomb.

Enjoy!

Music Monday #5

Owl City – The Saltwater Room

Because sometimes we all need a little whimsy in our life. If you don’t like electropop, boo you. Give it a few more chances and if you really don’t like it, come back in 3 months and listen to it. Um, technically it took me 2 years to finally listen to it and realize what I’ve been missing on so don’t worry about being late to hop on the Owl City wagon.

Enjoy!

Music Monday #2 – I’m late, says the March hare!

Truly Madly Deeply – Savage Garden

Okay, I’m late. I won’t even deny it. It’s Wednesday! What in the world have I been doing for the past few days? Talk about prioritizing!

Does anyone love this song as much as we do? It brings back memories of being in my parents’ bedroom when we would come back after a long school day (which school day wasn’t long, tbh?!) and my mom would turn up the music and we would just enjoy ourselves. Ah, those were the days. Long before the days started getting hotter and hotter. We’ve just been lucky to score a few days of rain lately otherwise it really is blazing, frickin’, fry-an-egg-on-the-roadside hot.

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?

Our new favorite song

Be Your Everything – Boys Like Girls

C and I are in LOVE with this song. We were fans of BLG a couple of years ago then they kind of disappeared and we kinda forgot about them. Okay, so I am following them on Facebook (on my personal account) and I’ve been seeing (but not really reading) their news until recently.

I watched the new music video, loved it and now we are back on the BLG bandwagon. It is a pretty simple love song but I like that they kept to what they’re good at. No major lyrical changes (you know, the not-so-innocent stuff), no wild leaps to a different genre, no sudden autotuning. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

Well, their latest EP Crazy World is out and their new album will be out later this year so while you’re waiting for the new album like we are (okay, admit you clicked the play button and found the song pretty decent), go get their EP and enjoy. All three songs are pretty good which makes the wait for their album quite promising.

On a side note, I know some bands/singers think that they get boring and decide to switch it up a bit. Yes, Maroon 5, I’m talking to you. ‘Poppiest’ album ever? They’re trying to give people what they want by making their music mainstream. I think they should just stick to what they’re good at because honestly, I’m not feeling the newest album. At all. But that’s just my two cents.

Also, we listened to the new Taylor Swift song and we think that it is….. Well, you’ll just have to wait for the next post. 😉

Tell us what you think.
