helloformat . if you haven't checked it out yet, you really need to.) kings of convenience - i'd rather dance with you the music's too loud and the noise from the crowd increases the chance of misinterpretation so let your hips do the talking i'll make you laugh by acting like the guy who sings and you'll make me smile by really getting into the swing i found this on naughty_teacup yesterday. she called them "dorky indie", which is really what they are, but in a good makes you want to sing along sort of way. really addictive after the first listen. a fine frenzy - blow away we are old in your teenaged tyranny and all you need is a hunger to feed i've got my own secrets though with a heart full of mess and lore we are doomed but we wanted more i love this girl's voice so so so so much. this ranks right up there next to almost lover (which, if you haven't heard, you're really committing a travesty against yourself) and what i wouldn't do (another of my current favorites). janelle monáe - cold war so you think I'm alone? but being alone's the only way to be when you step outside you spend life fighting for your sanity helloformat find again. this song instantly hit a chord in me, perhaps because it fits exactly with the dreary, hopeless world i am weaving into my novel (yes, i am one of those cruel authors who don't give their characters happily ever afters...no, i'm just joking). erin mccarley - lovesick mistake love, what do you say? your mystery winds me up to be playful oh, here goes my curious sinner within is someone listening? i hope no one is listening the vampire diaries has the best soundtrack. i freely admit this, and i don't even watch the show. this song is sweet and melancholy and wistful and self-loathing and everything you could want on a cloudy day like this. unless, of course, you're the kind of person who wants a pep-up instead of soaking in your misery. neon trees - animal here we are again i feel the chemicals kickin' in it's gettin' heavier i wanna run and hide i wanna run and hide a recommendation from the younger sister after i mentioned i was listening to their song from the vampire diaries soundtrack, "our war" (another good one, if you're curious). really upbeat, contagious chorus, definitely worth a listen. beth ditto - i wrote the book it never stops around the clock when I'm there, you speak so soft the runaround will wear you out you break it off, I'll break you down the type of song that makes you want to dance along no matter where you are (which i don't recommend if you're in a public place like the mall). one of those "i know what you did last night" songs, but at the same time it manages not to wear out the cliché. (via naughty_teacup ) coldplay - yellow i came along i wrote along and all the things you do and it was called "yellow" to me, the best coldplay song will always be "viva la vida", as worn out it might become from repeated exposure on the radio. this one, though, takes the honorable place of second as it deserves. one republic ft. timbaland - marching on for those days we felt were a mistake those times that love's what you call hate somehow, we keep marching on you know, i don't get how timbaland gets away with going "eh, eh, eh" in the background and people still dare to write off onerepublic's songs as his - timbaland ft. one republic, indeed. anyhoo, this is another vampire diaries song - my current great source of music addiction (if you're on 8tracks, there's this whole mix of music from the series that is awesome) - and has a nice rhythmic beat that reminds you of a marching band. house rules and notes. comment before snagging. recommendations are love. (thanks to the lovely paperwitch for doing just that on the last mix.) if you don't like it, don't slam it. just turn and leave. each song is uploaded on box. net so you can preview before you take. also, you can find this mix on my 8tracks here. thank you.
