So this week is all about Canada! Back when we were talking about Australia, I mentioned that I had a list of where different countries and their music stood on like a top five list. Canada is the reason why I created the list in the first place! I was listening to so much that I realized how large it was getting the more I started to add on both my iPod and Spotify playlists!
Since I’ve had Canada on this rota for the last two years, I’ve had to really dig through my archives to see who I can talk about this year. I’m really surprised that Avril Lavigne was not on listed until now. There are still quite a few bands and singers that have not been talked about yet! Anyways, I’ve been an Avril Lavigne fan since 2002 while I was having my back surgeries. My roommate and I were seriously obsessed with her! I’ve always looked forward to new music from her even if people think she’s changed her sound too much. I still love her!
The next two are two that I don’t really listen to like a lot on a daily basis, but still I thought I’d include them on this post. First is Lights. I think the fact she changed her name to “Lights” so she could use that as her name (after it was already in usage by somebody else) it was legal for her to use it professionally afterwards. My friend Mandy has tried to get me to listen to her before with no such luck. It wasn’t until she released her album “Little Machines” that I started to notice she was everywhere! She’s featured in other EDM songs with Borgeous and Seven Lions. She’s not bad! The last is somebody that my sister just loves, Drake. Rap music is a genre that I don’t really listen to a lot, but I’ve realized that I have a couple rappers featured in these posts this year!
Do you know any more Canadian music? Let me know!
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.
I think it’s safe to say that the Kardashians have lost a lot of people. They are the biggest family that’s on reality TV. You have Bruce Jenner, and his Kris Jenner who was married to Robert Kardashian, if you don’t know who he is, he was O.J.’s lawyer in the 80’s. Kris and Robert had four kids. Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob. After Kris and Robert divorced and he died, she remarried Bruce. They ended up having two more kids. Kendall and Kylie Jenner. I’m surprised I remembered that much.
The first time I watched “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” I thought to myself, “it’s just another snobby rich family.” In a sense I was right. Then after a few episodes I started to have favorites. I liked Kourtney and Rob. I always have. Everybody else I hated pretty much. They have other shows on E! revolving around them. Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Khloe and Lamar. It’s just nonstop! Kendall is modeling now, and she was in Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn because her older brother Brody Jenner is dating Avril.
Everytime I see anyone of them in the news, besides Rob and Kourtney, it drives me into the wall. I don’t want to hear Kim upset how she may never have kids. I have one thing to say about that. Who cares if you don’t get married, you can have a kid and not be married. Adopt a baby or get artifical insemination. Obviously Kim has never seen “The Back-Up Plan” before. Kourtney is in the news now because her and Scott are pregnant again with baby number two! I don’t usually see anything about Khloe or Rob in the news, which might be a good thing really. I don’t like Kris Jenner. she gets on my damn nerves. Her and Khloe both do,
It’s the second to last day of this month of September. Yesterday was the day where I actually got to hear “Wake Me Up When September Ends” by Green Day. I was hoping this month would go by fast and almost gave up on my vow on myself to not be so depressed this month. I almost made it another dark month. Since it won’t be over until Saturday, I have until tomorrow to keep up my happiness, even though I’m slowly dying inside.
I wasn’t as depressed as I woke up this morning, but after looking around my room. It’s reminding me of good times I had with friends here. My mind obviously misses the good times too. Everything I tried to do in here still exists and everything I don’t want to miss still floats around in my head. I’ve got a picture on my floor that needs to be in another room. I’m listening to “Nobody’s Home” by Avril Lavigne, and even singing to it. It reflects my life right now. It’s so true for me.
I need another good day or night. I thought since both Linkin Park and The Vampire Diaries were going to be on my TV screen I was going to have a good day. Not looking like it. Maybe around 5 I’ll start to perk up because of Mad About You. I just need something good. A surprise that’s good to just take everything that’s bugging me away.
I am [Anything But Ordinary]. [My World] is a [complicated] one. Sometimes I’m [unwanted] by people I thought were friends with me. There are [things I’ll never say] because of my own being, but I am [losing grip] on everything I’ve ever wanted. [Tomorrow] might be the best day I’ll ever have but yet it may not. [I’m With You] in spirit and [mobile] but that never helps me anymore. Maybe I should just [LET GO]
I tend to [freak out] about the little things. You [don’t tell me] anything about your life anymore. What happened to [my happy ending]? You [slipped away] from me. Which I don’t regret at all. [Nobody’s home] now to answer your text messages anything. [Who knows] we might be friends again, but I gotta do some changing first. So [how does it feel] to be [forgotten?] Not fun is it? I [fall to pieces] all the time watching the clock tick away and you’re still not with me. I wish someone would [take me away] because this is getting [UNDER MY SKIN!]
Now that I’m out of school [I don’t have to try] to be [one of those girls]. [I can do better] than I’ve done lately, but the sadness is still there. You have a have another [girlfriend] and [keep holding on] to a friendship that is starting to fade. [When you’re gone] I know we won’t see each other for a few months. [I will be] fine and my [innocence] starts to show again. Our craziness was [contagious] It was [THE BEST DAMN THING] ever!
[What the hell]? I [smile] at you but you don’t say anything about hanging out? [Darlin] you don’t have a clue how much I want a night out. The text messages saying, “we need to hang out” are [not enough]. I [wish you were here] so you could read this and understand. I [push] for independence but no use. [Everybody hurts] when they’re best friends are busy with other things. Well this is my crumbling frienship, and I just wanted to say [I love you] and I’m going to play my [GOODBYE LULLABY].
So I just listened to Simple Plan’s new album that came out in June and I’m wondering why I never saw anything about it but just ads for “Jet Lag” featuring Natasha Bedingfield around June or July. Don’t really remember what month I saw them post it on their facebook. The Pulse on Sirius XM channel just started playing yesterday and that’s how I heard it for the first time. Last name around midnight, I watched the music video and really loved it. I’ve been trying to listen to their new album on YouTube since 1:09am this morning. I got through probably three songs before going offline. I just finished up listening to it and I was actually more impressed than I thought I would be.
I’ve always been a fan of Simple Plan. They were one of the first rock bands I started listening to around 2002-03 era. It was Simple Plan, Good Charolette, Evanescence, and Avril Lavigne that ruled that time. Nowadays, it’s Avril Lavigne and some of the other three and lots of other bands that I got into afterwards. I’ve always been interested in Rock music I just didn’t like the “scary” bands. What I’m meaning there is pretty much Five Finger Death Punch, but they’re like the only metal band that I actually will listen to and watch their music videos. Everything else around FFDP is pretty much screwed. I won’t give them half a chance. I have enough rock bands as it is.
Here’s my favorites from “Get Your Heart On” album. Enjoy!
I love Mash Ups! These are some unlikey mash ups! I would never suspect to put these songs together. Here are a few of my favorites! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
