Like, did any songs have an impact on me emotionally? Pfft, no! Maybe. Yes. So does that mean the one with the most "oh em gee"s is awarded
The first music post of 2013 was Perfection and Pirates, and I really loved Perfection by Oh Land. Her outfit's a bit crazy in the video, but when did that matter? This live performance was so elaborate with the orchestra and choir. Aweeesomee!
Oh, Goosebumps. You bring back memories. Finale by Madeon (still have no idea how to pronounce that) was an awesome song. If I worked out, I would work out to this song. Instead I imagine dramatic stories that would have this in the background. Or mouth it in the mirror. Either way, I like it a lot!
There were a lot of songs in the post Ninja + Others, but Time by Hans Zimmer simply was the best. I love soundtracks, and I can only think back to last year, where a soundtrack title was the song of the year! Will this take the cake, hmmm??
Now for a rockin' tune. Hott was a post with the glorious song, Inside a Boy by My Brightest Diamond. Now I'm quoting here: "The intro was just really cool and beautiful and then BOOM! Enter the drums and guitar." And also: "I've been having this on repeat for twelve thousand years, give or take some." Enough said.
Updates + Music + Other Stuff was a lovely post. Not only did it have the AWESOME Touch by Daft Punk feat. Paul Williams, it has a Wordle! I will do a Wordle to wrap up the year. I will. *And I swe-e-ear. . .*
Dead Hearts. Dear, oh, dear. You know how children go through phases in their lives? The "lol, random" phase? The "scene" phase? Possibly the "emo" phase? I'm convinced I had my own Dead Hearts by Stars phase. I just ah-dored that song, ah-dored it so much it's almost embarrassing. The lyrics meant something more than spooky ghosts! I think any angsty story deserves this song in the background. Nominee fo sho.
More angst! Yaayyy! I won't be talking about "get up, get up, get out of my head!!!", no sirree. Get Up had a song with the same title, by Barcelona. Um, yes! I liked the harmonies, like I do in every song that has harmonies. Geeeeeeett, uuuuppppppp. . .
Music Time for the Millionth Time was an amazing post. It had a lot of great songs that no one really knew about :) It had Starman by the City of Prague Philharmonic. In case you didn't know, this was sampled to create Dan Black's Symphonies! Oh and what's this? Two nominees in one post??!
Yep, Music Time for the Millionth Time also had Mosquito by Ingrid Michaelson. Beautiful. That's all you can really say about this song. Definitely deserves a spot on the nominee list!
So that was 9 nominees! Oh gawd, hard decisions make sudden regrets. . . Let's twist this into, like, an American Idol result show.
The votes are in, and everyone is just dying to hear the results! Perfection, Time, Inside a Boy, Dead Hearts, and Starman: You are all safe! Now the song with the most votes issss: *awkward silence* Inside a Boy by My Brightest Diamond! *wild applause*
Okay, here's why I chose this song. Like any other super long post I do, I got a bit tired thinking of stuff near the end. The soundtracks? Great. Eleborate orchestras? Awesome. Dead Hearts? Lovely. But as I went through and listened to all of these songs, they seemed played out. Yes, they brought back memories, but the one song that I still loved as much as I did when I first heard it? Inside a Boy. And if a song can do that, it deserves to be recognized. I'm sure noneofya guessed that, huh?!
And to wrap up 2013, let's make a beautiful Wordle.
I love you guys. According to my stats, there's almost 350 of you guys visiting my website, and it may even be more. It's unbelievable. My request for you this new year for this site?
