I don't talk about music too much on the blog, probably cause this is a movie blog. But it's still my blog and I can do whatever I want. So put that in your smoke and pipe it!
Anyway, much like everything that inspires me lately, Outside The Cinema is doing a music episode on Sunday and they asked everyone to come up with their Top Ten favorite songs. These pretty much are the top ten songs I listen to A LOT on my iPod/iTunes. I dunno if this is a definitive Top Ten of ALL TIME!!!!!! or anything so don't be like "HOW DARE YOU PUT THAT IN YOUR TOP TEN!! You offend me, sire!!!!" Well, you shouldn't say that anyway cause this is MY opinion, but again I do want you all to love the same things I love and if you hate anything then you can just go somewhere.
One final note before presenting said list: I know there's hardly any rap/hip hop/whatever you kids are calling it now-a-day (why is it also called "R&B", people are retarded) on this list. It's not that I don't like rap/whatever, I just don't listen to a lot of it and as a result, it wouldn't show up in my top ten. I could make a top ten rap list next time just to cool everyone down or something. Ok so with that said, here are my top ten favorite songs. Don't hate me too much.
10. Foo Fighters-Everlong
9. The White Stripes-Seven Nation Army
8. Limp Bizkit-My Way
Ok, I'll explain this one. I know the entire world hates on Limp Bizkit, but this song, and mainly this album, got me through a lot of tough times in the past. Plus whenever I'm pissed off at someone at work, I just crank this up and rock out with my you-know-what out.
7. Kings of Leon-Use Somebody
6. Beastie Boys-So Whatcha Want
This is the one rap/hip-hop song. I had to put a Beastie Boys song on here. The problem I had was I didn't know which one. I love a lot of their songs, but if there's one I could hear over and over again, it would be this one.
5. The Cranberries-Zombie
Not cause of the message, this song just fucking rocks. And I totally kick ass on this song on SingStar.
4. Led Zeppelin-Ramble On
I needed a classic rock song on this list. Just for the record, the other classic rock song I wanted to put on this list was AC/DC's "Back in Black" but I didn't have room. So it'll just be at number 11. Sorry AC/DC fans. And I didn't put "Stairway" on here cause EVERYBODY fucking loves that song. It is the greatest song in the world, after all.
3. Radiohead-Karma Police
I fuckin love this song. The video is awesome, even if it's simplistic. It's worth clicking the link.
2. The Arcade Fire-Neighborhood #2 (Latkia)
Probably kinda random but I FUCKING love this song.
1. R.E.M-Ebow The Letter
One of my favorite bands is R.E.M so making this a top ten list of just R.E.M songs was hard. But out of all of their songs, I listened to this one the most. It's kinda melancholy but I like it. It can calm me when I'm upset or if I had a bad day. The video I'll admit is boring so I don't watch it hardly.
Some honorable mentions, the ones that'd be numbers 11 onward:
Back in Black (as previously mentioned)
Other Radiohed songs like Creep, Paranoid Android, 15 Step,
Freebird of course
Jay-Z 99 Problems and Big Pimpin
Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit
Harvey Danger-Flag Pole Sitta
Rage Against The Machine-Killing In The Name Of
And SOOOO many others.
Anyway, this was my list. Hopefully I don't get a lot of flack for it. Again, it's my blog, so whatever.
