Home Town Glory // Songs that remind you of home // Midnight Sky by Miley Cyrus
“But it’s been a long time since I felt this good on my own.”
I don’t think this song reminds me of home physically as much as it reminds me of the vibe that we’re all small specks of dust in such a vast universe. I just feel like it would be a great song to have someone dancing to with a brightly star-light night background in a dimly light city or in a landscape like what Ymir was in in Attack on Titan. Someone make this happen for me please. My soul needs it.
It’s a Love Story // Your favourite songs about love // All of Me by John Legend
“What would I do without your smart mouth?”
I just really like this as a love song since it’s sung to the person he loves and includes things typically portrayed as ‘negative’ in a wonderful light. He just sounds so in love.
Shut Up and Dance // Songs you have to dance to // Dancin (KRONO Remix) by Aaron Smith
“Yeah but the feeling is fine.”
This song is such a bop. It’s got such solid beats against the vocals and the little odd sounding runs/trills just helps add to it.
If this was a Movie // Songs from Movies/TV/Broadway // The Plagues from Prince of Egypt
“Serving as your foe on his behalf is the last thing that I wanted.”
This is such a chilling song. The chorus’ harmonies and articulation, the instrumental sections, the lyrics, it’s all so creepy and powerful. The part where they make Moses sing against Rameses too is just perfection.
Comfort Crowd // Songs that make you feel calm // Frozen by Sheldon Riley
“You’re frozen when your heart’s not open.”
In what is probably a rather controversial opinion, I much prefer this cover to the original. The lyrics are so perfect for a ballad and I think the fact he’s projection is so open voweled and warm sounding adds to a sense of longing.
Always Remember Us this Way // Songs that remind you of your childhood // Asereje by Las Ketchup
“Y la baila y la goza y la canta.”
This song purely reminds me of my childhood because my dad sung it so much with us and played it so much. He helped me with my pronunciation too since I always butchered it. Plus, my siblings loved this song when it was on Just Dance.
Let’s Get Down to Business // Songs that motivate you // Son of Man by Phil Collins
“Oh, the power to be strong and the wisdom to be wise.”
I don’t think this song motivates me as much as I just want to say I appreciate Phil Collins absolutely going above and beyond in Tarzan. I don’t even care about his tax evasion this song makes me feel things and stay focused on studying (I don’t do well with upbeat songs while studying, I need songs more in the same vibe as Son of Man to focus).
Old Town Road // Songs from the past that you like // Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley
“Would it be a sin if I can’t help falling in love with you?”
This is such a romantic song. No more needs to be said.
Cry with You // Songs that make you cry and cry // Call of Silence by Hiroyuki Sawano
“Even if my body’s bleached to the bones I don’t want to go through that ever again.”
I can’t say anything about this song. I’ll just cry. Please listen to it.
I Think I’m in Love // Your latest music obsessions // Far Beyond by Dexter French
“Through ourselves we send a sign but the message is our breaking.”
I couldn’t think of a latest obsession so I just decided to put what’s probably my favourite song in.
Writer in the Dark // Favourite lyrics from songs // The Loneliest Girl from Carole and Tuesday and TheDOGS by Hiroyuki Sawano
“Do you really want to set the night on fire?”
Lyrically this is just one of my favourite songs from this series. It’s got such a clear story, emotion and message told.
“Were we born to lose and let goliath win?’
You have to listen to this song the lyrics are so good.
Sign of the Times // Songs in the charts that you love // Call out my Name by The Weeknd
“I said I didn’t feel nothing baby, but I lied.”
The Weeknd has such a great voice with so much emotion behind it. This song is feeling.
More Than a Memory // Songs you have specific memories attached to // Right Here, Right Now by Fat Boy Slim
I was deathly afraid of this music video growing up. It got to the stage that just the music would make me physically nauseous. If you made me watch any part of the video I would cry. And if you made me sit through the whole thing it would sometimes get to the point where I was sweating and my hands were minutely shaking.
Sing to Me Instead // Those songs you have to sing to // Take me to Church by Hozier
“I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.”
I seriously considered putting this song under the ‘lyrics’ question for this tag but I just love singing along to it so I had to keep it here.
I Wasn’t Expecting That // Songs that you didn’t expect to love, but you do // Glassy Sky by Yutaka Yamada
“The moments we spent have passed and gone away.”
I was crying too much the first time I heard the song so I knew I liked it but on a second listen I remembering not liking it as much? But I listened to it later thinking I still wouldn’t like it that much and did a total 180. I love this beautiful song.
Favourite Record // Albums you can’t live without // Merry-Go-Round-of-Life by Joe Hisaishi
I actually don’t listen to albums so I wasn’t sure to to put it. However, I will listen to this song for the length of an album. Someone please make a note that I want this song played at every major life event I have and if it’s not I will be upset. Someone better play this behind me while I dance through the street one night after a fantastic day where a wizard walks me through the air.
Video Games // Name your favourite music videos // The Trail We Blaze from The Road to El Dorado
“Changing legend into fact we shall ride into history.”
Okay so I also don’t really watch music videos. However, I have watched the Road to El Dorado many times and its entire soundtrack goes so hard in the movie which is a video. So, on that note I’m putting this song in.
