Week 5. Another 5 songs. I’m running out of ideas for things to write here, so lets just move on.
1. Burn it Down by Linkin Park
Linkin Park is not dead. Their last album was comparatively weak, but I personally think that the new one is better. This song might not seem good to you when you listen to it the first time, but I recommend that you give it another listen. I hear people complain about how they want metal music from Linkin Park, but that is not gonna happen. Chester himself admitted that they didn’t want to produce metal music in the first place, but did it because it was getting good ratings. So, all you Linkin Park fans, get over it and move on.
Week 4, and 5 new songs. Check out the posts for the previous weeks here.
And so, I bring you five more songs so that you may find entertainment therein. Most of you recently got through with your exams, and this saves you the trouble of having to search for new music. Just go through these posts and the previous ones (linked above) to find some great songs.
1. Drops of Jupiter by Train
I had originally heard a shorter version of this on American Idol, about two years back. I really liked it, and now I recently got to listen to it again. Hence, I thought I’d share this amazing track with everyone else.
Here I am, with another 5 songs for you to kill your boredom (or ‘I-desperately-need-a-new-song’ craving).
1. Fix you by Coldplay
No one can deny the mighty power that is Coldplay. Although this song might be a little slow, especially in the beginning, it’s a wonderful song with a wonderful message. Give it a shot, if you haven’t already, you might just like it.
Another week, another 5 songs to help you kill that ‘I-desperately-need-a-new-song’ craving.
1. Torn by Natalie Imbruglia
This is an oldie, but I stumbled upon it a week ago. It’s pretty good, and I must’ve listened to it about a 100 times at least. I see people talking about how One Direction covered it better, but that is an outright lie. Original songs are always the best. I abhor the One Direction version.
Since 2011 is over, I thought I’d give a list of my favourite music of the year (In no particular order).
- ET – Katy Perry
To be honest, I hate Katy Perry. But this was one song that stuck to me
- Losing My Religion – Dia Frampton
I like the REM version better, but I did not know about it until I heard the Dia version this year. And lets admit it, it’s not a bad attempt. (Edit: I JUST noticed that she was in American Idol 😐 )
- Rolling in the Deep – Adele
Who did NOT like this?!
