Ohio Is For Lovers is by the “emo” band HawthorneHeights. This song is older and was released in 2004, which is about 9 years ago. I decided to write about this song because it has been stuck in my head. HawthorneHeights is a great band in my opinion, and even though there is hardcore screaming in their songs, the lead singer, JT Woodruff, displays great singing talents. This will always be one of my favorite songs of theirs.
Fell For You is a song by the popular pop-punk band Green Day. Green Day consists of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool. Green Day formed in 1989 with a different drummer, and had Tre join not so long after forming. This song is off one of their newest albums, Uno, which is part of a three part trilogy Uno, Dos, and Tre. This song is one of my favorites of their newest released. It is upbeat and is really catchy. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Green Day.
I’m Different is a song by the rapper 2 Chainz. I decided to do this video because I have been hearing it a lot and it has actually grown on me. 2 Chainz is one of those rappers in my opinion that has very catchy songs. One things that helps his songs is the yelling of “2 Chainz” he adds in front of everything. I would suggest this song or even 2 Chainz to anyone who likes rap music.
I Miss You is a song by the band blink-182. It is one of my favorite songs by them and it always has been. It was released in the year 2003. This song has very meaningful lyrics, and is about missing someone you used to be with. It can be sad at times, but I love it in general. I don’t know who hasn’t ever heard this song, but if you haven’t I suggest you should listen to it.
The title of this video pretty much describes the entire video. In this video, the dog’s owner lines up a row of shampoo bottles on a bathtub. Then the dog runs up and knocks all of the bottles into the bathtub. I think this video is really funny because it is random and something you wouldn’t see every day. I suggest it to anyone who likes animals or just needs a good laugh.
Californication is another song by the band Red Hot Chili Peppers. I decided to pick this song because I already wrote an article on one of their songs, and this song came up as a suggestion. This also happens to be another song I really like by them. It is about how life would be in California, and how everything differs. That is where the name “Californication” comes from. I really think it is such a good song and again, I would also suggest it to anyone.
Otherside is a song by the popular band Red Hot Chili Peppers. RHCP has been together since 1983 and since then has made amazing music (in my opinion). Anthony Kiedes is their lead singer, and has a very unique voice. I think this song has a really beautiful tone, and would suggest anyone to listen to it. It is also one of my favorite songs by this band.
Somebody That I Used to Know is usually by the artist Gotye, but in this video, it is Mayday Parade’s rendition. Their version features singer Vic Fuentes, from the band Pierce the Veil. I personally like this version better because I enjoy this genre of music, which is punk. I personally think that both the lead of Mayday Parade and Vic Fuentes have great voices, and their voices complement each other when singing in the same song. I would recommend this song to anyone who likes the original, or anyone who likes the artists in this version of the song.
Tegan and Sara are a Canadian duo that is a cross between folk and rock. They started their musical career in 1998 when they earned the highest score in the competition called “Garage Warz.” Their commerical breakthrough really didn’t occur until 2005 when they released their album “So Jealous.” Then they came out with “The Con” in 2007 which had more of an indie sound. Tegan and Sara have a unique sound, and some of there songs are a little eccentric, but they are definitely very talented. They just released a new single called “Closer” which is on the radio quite a bit. It’s somewhat out there but it has a great beat and very good vocals. Click the link above and give it a listen!
Well, I think it’s safe to say that winter is definitely in full bloom this year. Between the temperature creeping under 30 degrees way too often and some snow flurries here and there, it has been way too cold for my liking. Supposingly, we are expected to get a rather big snow storm sometime before winter ends, which I am hoping isn’t true. Snow was so fun when I was younger because it would get me off from school and I could just sit there and build snowmen and snow forts. But now since I am a young adult, the snow tends to ruin my plans and make for treacherous driving conditions. So, I really hope that this winter isn’t too brutal and that Spring arrives rather quickly!
