Day 30: Song(s) to play at my wake

Here's five songs to play, but don't limit it to these, as every one previously listed are all aspects of what I like and dislike.

Highway to Hell

Stairway to Heaven

Yeah, unoriginal, that's okay. Here's something different.


Old Man (maybe more appropriate for my dad's eventual funeral, since I'll probably never have kids)

And... uh...

fuck it. Why not? Play this during some kind of slow procession during my funeral.

Day 29: A song that gives you the creeps

Man, I'm such a visual person that this is a really difficult one to figure out. Songs don't stay with me. In the same sense that I don't listen to music to focus my emotion, I don't carry them with me afterwards. I don't often get a song stuck in my head to the point of frustration. I focus on songs that defy my expectations, and even focus on songs that fulfill all of my expectations (It's just as rare both ways).

So I have trouble hearing lyrics in songs and a lot of trouble remembering lyrics after a few months away from it. I think because I'm so good at short term memorization (got me through high school) that I can memorize a song in choir, or how I can memorize a script for a stage play, yet I couldn't tell you even a single line from a play that I was in years ago.

But songs that have well-defined aspects of my life are uncommon and very intriguing. The following song does not creep me out, but it illustrates very well what it was like dealing with depression during college. It almost creeps me out how easily I can link parts of my college experience with parts of the song through metaphor. The end of the song always makes me sad, but it's a positive kind of catharsis that I need once in a while.

Day 28: A song that needs never be heard again


Anything by Nickleback.

Especially Something In Your Mouth.

I imagine the song writing pitch went something like this:

"Hey! Now that we are rich and invincible, let's do a song about BLOWJOBS LOL!"

"HAHA! That sounds awesome, Chad Kroeger! But aren't you afraid that the overt sexuality will ruin our reputation?"

"NONSENSE! I have artistic subtlety! No one will even know what it's about. THIS PLAN CANNOT FAIL!"

They suck.

Day 27: A song in your FLAC folder no one else has

Can't link it if no one else has it. Herp a derp on this meme thing.

I like the following song.

Day 26: Favorite music video

Ugh, I've been linking music videos this whole time... And how do we even define music video?

I'll just link more DragonForce:

Nevermind: (cartoon violence and nudity to follow)

Day 24: Favorite cover song

Easy. Well... damn... I have two by the same band that are my favorites.

The video is pretty awful. I don't want to see that guy lip-sync. I also hate them live.

But, the second:

I cannot adequately express how much better that cover is than the original. Again, however, and for different reasons, that video is awful.

Oh crap! I just remembered my OTHER OTHER FAVORITE cover:

That guy is pretty great.
