I know it’s not the music player post, but I hope you like this because the song inspired me to do it this way. If you like, I’ll do the music player later, no big deal :)
Haunting songs: Just Tonight - The Pretty Reckless
I’ve almost never known any good song that lasted less than 3 minutes and there’s The Pretty Reckless’ Just Tonight. It’s a pity, I hope they repeat the chorus over and over in their concert or something :”3
Haunting songs: Rescue Me - Tokio HotelI don’t think I’m a big fan of Tokio Hotel, ‘cause I haven’t listened to all their songs. I only focus on hits and sad tracks, I don’t really care about the rest. And I haven’t watch all their videos and interviews to know everything about them.
I guess only God knows how much I love their music, and how much I’ve cried over Bill Kaulitz, the one I’m considering the love of my life. I know that’s pretty lame, I don’t care if you judge me for that. But don’t you dare to judge Tokio Hotel, ‘cause I’ll be the one who’s gonna beat you up.
Haunting songs: Can’t Pretend - Tom OdellSometimes, when I find some new awesome artist (“new” means not so popular, or my friends have no idea about them), I hide them for myself.I know that sounds selfish, a fan should be proudly introduce their favourite artists to the world, that’s a really good way to help them to get more fan, ‘cause having a lot of fans means the day they can have their own tour is closer, and there will be more interviews, more photoshoots, more motivations to make new albums.But the reason why I don’t want people to know them is that I feel so good having something nobody knows it exists. Have you ever put on your earphones, open the song and giggled because you’re owning the freaking song?I’ve hidden Tom Odell for myself for like 3 or 4 months before I drew a picture inspired by his “Another Love.” And I guess I made more Odellers for him ‘cause after that, I saw a few girls posting his songs as their Facebook status soundtrack, some set his photos as their profile pictures.About Tom Odell. He’s incredible in every single way, no, only that he once had a rumor with Taylor Swift, which is fine if he loves her, but ugh, that girl is cool but in love, she’s just… eh.I can write a lot about this man. But not in this post, I will show you every page I wrote about him later. Until then, let the song hit you.
Haunting songs: Nobody’s Home - Avril Lavigne
I bet we all have songs that always remind us of some period time of our life.
I don’t have many things in my life to be proud of, but compare to what I’ve done, singing in a cover band for a short time was a great time of my life. And it was really amazing singing songs I love, like Avril Lavigne’s My Happy Ending, Nobody’s Home, Maroon 5’s She Will Be Loved, etc.
It was really amazing until I realized people liked watching me performing these songs because they were popular tracks, not because they felt related or so. I figured it out when I recommended The Pretty Reckless’ songs to the band and they told me, “Please, people don’t know this band, choose something they can sing along!”
I got shocked, I thought music was about finding and saving someone’s soul, I didn’t know money was what mattered the most to the band ‘cause they said they were just doing it for the passion. They even told me to cover Lady Gaga’s hits, which was fine, but, damn, it hurt not being accepted.
I left the band, or maybe they let me go without hesitating, and promise to myself if I ever work in the music industry, I’ll be myself first, ‘cause if I keep floating along “the trend”, I may commit suicide.
