I really hardly ever listen to music. Currently, my poor ipod has been dead for months. I haven’t charged it since January. I usually don’t feel the need to fill up the silence with music, and when I do, it’s quite rare. I just feel like with music, I have a hard time hearing my thoughts. I don’t want to drown them out. I like to think in solitude.
When I do listen to music, it’s either in the car, online, or when I’m walking alone at night. Today has been quite unusual for me. I’ve been listening to songs since I got on the computer about over an hour ago. There are just some songs that I hate to admit that I like. It’s not my fault that they were manufactured to be so catchy and appealing! Two of the said songs: Baby by Justin Bieber and Your Love is My Drug by Ke$ha.
I’m not even close to being one of those Justin Bieber fans, but after listening to the song so many times on the radio, I can’t help but start singing along. It’s kind of infectious. The first time I found myself really liking the song was when my classmate in a culinary elective got the song stuck in my head. Naturally, he had to start singing it out loud. Next thing I know, I’m singing it for the rest of the day. There’s no escape of the song. It’s everywhere. I had to get accustomed to it sooner or later.
Ke$ha must have a good producer; her songs are just so damn catchy. I hear it once and it’s in my head the whole day. Both Tik Tok and Your Love is My Drug just make me want to dance. It’s just really good, fun party music. Hearing Your Love is My Drug is much refreshing anyways. I’d rather listen to it than her previous song Blah, Blah, Blah. While it still had an upbeat tempo, I thought Blah, Blah, Blah‘s lyrics were just too… dumb. I couldn’t stand it.
One song on the other hand that I’m still playing endlessly tonight (until Criminal Minds is on…) is Darling I Do by Landon Pigg and Lucy Schwartz from the Shrek Forever After soundtrack. I loved Landon Pigg’s music ever since I watched the movie Whip It. I love his voice. I think this song is really sweet and pretty.
