Song challenge for the day was supposed to be pick a song from your favorite band. Since I couldn’t make up my mind. I’m just going to list five songs by five different bands. I am not responsible if the songs make you cry, I am just saying. (:
I love Halestorm. I can listen to their album about a hundred times and not get tired of it. I am so obsessed with it! This was my first song that I listened to, besides the ones that came on the EP. I heard this song on Octane and could have cried through it. I am completely in love with this song. I love how it sounds, the lyrics, and gah! The whole song just melts my heart into a big puddle. I did not think I’d ever like a song this, but Lzzy switched it all up for me.
Another song I heard for the first time on Octane. I had always loved Symphonic Metal but I had a small break because I didn’t want to get my heart set on a genre where not a lot of bands were in, like in that category. After I got into Within Temptation, hearing this song and a few others. I was happy to know there were more bands that were like them. The fact that there isn’t any here in the States, really sucks. Originally this song wasn’t my first choice. I want to use lyric videos, but the song I wanted to use has already been posted in a past post.
I think all three of these songs I first heard them on Octane. It’s a good radio station. Since I didn’t have a FFDP song on my last post. This one had to go here. I love this song, the band is completely insane, but in a good way. Everybody thinks I’m a bit weird considering I listen to them like everyday. I’m not that stuck into them. If I was really stuck to them, this would be the original challenge of one song by one band. I couldn’t choose from all of the bands I listen to, so there.
I love In This Moment. They are freaking amazing! I actually had to go looking for this song. I heard Kayla Riley on Octane talking about being released online and I went looking about an hour later and actually found it. I am seriously obsessed with this song. I cannot wait to get my toes on this new album of their’s hopefully next week. I’m going to have to do some seriously begging, but it will be so worth it. After I heard this song I literally thought to myself, Maria and Chester Bennington of Linkin Park should do a “Shut up” scream challenge to see which one is the loudest.
Speaking of Linkin Park, I love them too! They were my first rock band to get into and have almost every album by them. I have more LP albums than Backstreet Boys. I’m only missing the Live In Texas and LPU CD’s. Since I’m not a LPU I’m not too worried about those. Even though I’m not as into LP like I use to be, they never really go away. I still get excited everytime they release a LPTV episode on YouTube, like yesterday I got so excited I could have made somebody giggle because of how goofy I was acting. That’s what they do to me.
I must have five relatable lyrics for my challenge today. It was kind of weird at first, because there are a lot of songs that can be relatable for me. The reason why I used these songs were because I listen to them the most when I’m insecurited about things that have to do with me and my life. When I was a senior, originally I wanted to sing “Numb” as my Senior Solo but I was declined by our director. I had to put it on here because it’s still one of my favorite songs by them. I wanted to use a few other songs by Avril Lavigne, but how the verse stopped and chorus began, it would be weird to place them. Her song “Who Knows” is a good optistimic song. I love it. Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter” is my third song because I am a fighter. Nobody is going to stop me. I love “Freak Like Me” by Halestorm, because everybody thinks I look like a freak and they are right, but I am proud of it. Last but not least, you got to list “Lies Of The Beautiful People” by Sixx:A.M. I would be a fool if I didn’t have this song on here.
“I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there,
Become so tired, so much more aware
I’m becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you.” – Linkin Park
“I think there’s something more, life’s worth living for
Who knows what could happen.
Do what you do, just keep on laughing
One thing’s true, there’s always a brand new day
I’m gonna live today like it’s my last day” – Avril Lavigne
“How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretend not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you’ll see
– Christina Aguilera
“So shout if you’re a freak like me,
You were born to burn,
This is no disease you don’t need a cure!
It’s our time now to come out!
If you’re a freak like me!
If you’re a freak like me” – Halestorm
“Save yourself from all the lies of the beautiful people
It’s time to run from the lies of the beautiful people.” – Sixx:A.M.
Today only reminded me of my past. How much I hate but wouldn’t want to change one single thing about it. My nana and I talked about my time in high school. It brought up things that still aggravate me til this day. Then tonight just squashed every self-esteem I had, but I think that’s my hormones talking. I felt so old and just going around the sidelines of the football game, just irritated me even more. I only talked to one teacher and two guys. That’s it! I had a plan I wouldn’t talk to anybody, unless they come up to me or call my name. Which worked at first, then by the end of the time I was there at the game, I caved in and talked to these two goons. I was happy they talked to me, but I had a plan and I blew it. I also let my emotions run loose and make me depressed. Not good.
On the way home from the game, it was just weird not taking Emily home with us. Since she’s driving full-time now, I’m still not use to it yet. Even though she’s driven all summer long, today was just weird. Before junior year ended, she did drive herself to school every morning but she did take the bus every once in a while. So when I got up this morning, she drove to school. I still had it in my head that she was going to work instead. Once mom and dad were talking about Emily coming home, I realized she was actually at school. I feel old and weird, and I do NOT like that at all! She’s a senior in high school. I wanted to go back to school four months ago. Now I just want to go back in the womb and start everything over. I don’t think my mom would like that. Hopefully everything gets better and easily works itself out. Wishful thinking.
