Music Monday — 2012

As part of my ongoing celebration for my 30th birthday, I am highlighting some popular songs from throughout my years.  Songs were picked based off of a list of Grammy award winners and Billboard Top 100.  Then, I chose my favorites to highlight.  

Year: 2012

Music Selections: I realize that it is only September, but I’ve come to the end of my Music Mondays My Years posts.  So I thought I would end them with some of my favorites for this year so far.

  1. Florence + the Machine “What the Water Gave Me” — Such a beautiful song.  This is hands down my favorite song on the album.
  2. The Black Keys “Gold on the Ceiling” — Who doesn’t love The Black Keys?  I would take them home any day.
  3. Green Day “Oh Love” — While I wasn’t that excited about 21st Century Breakdown, I am loving this song…
  4. David Guetta feat. Sia “Titanium” — This is my summer song.
  5. The Shins “Simple Song” — Another favorite band. I love this song way too much and James Mercer’s voice is to die for…
  6. Jack White “Sixteen Saltines” — I really must buy this album. I love everything Jack White does.
  7. Santigold “Disparate Youth” — I’m not a huge fan of hers, but I love the music behind this one.
  8. Mumford and Sons “I Will Wait” — I can’t wait until the new album. I already pre-ordered it on iTunes.
  9. Alex Clare “Too Close” — A relatively new find for me. Love his voice.

Music Monday — 1998

As part of my ongoing celebration for my 30th birthday, I am highlighting some popular songs from throughout my years.  Songs were picked based off of a list of Grammy award winners and Billboard Top 100.  Then, I chose my favorites to highlight.  

Year: 1998

Book: Readings on Shakespeare’s The Histories

Music Selections: 

  1.  The Offspring “Americana” — I loved The Offpsring, all the old stuff.  The new stuff just doesn’t have the same fun.  I think this was their last record that liked.  And I saw them in concert either 2000 or 2001.  Great times.
  2. Goo Goo Dolls “Iris” — One of my all time favorite songs.  I’ve recently caught this song on Lithium multiple times.  Can’t help but stop and sing along.
  3. Matchbox Twenty “3 am” — Another high school favorite of mine.  I hear they have a new song.  Haven’t heard it yet, but I’m sure it won’t compete with 3 am.
  4. Savage Garden “Truly Madly Deeply” — A gooey love song.
  5. Barenaked Ladies “One Week” — I still can’t sing the entire song, but I love it anyway.  Plus, it was on the soundtrack for 10 Things I Hate About You, which is one of my favorite high school era movies.
