30 Day Song Challenge – Day 17 & 18: Radio Play

Day 17: A Song That You Hear Often On The Radio

Around here ‘often’, unfortunately means WAY TOO OFTEN. ugh… It’s really too bad because I used to like this song quite a bit, and I think Adele is really talented (which is refreshing), but if I hear this song ONEMORETIME…

Anyways, this isn’t the official video, but I think it’s cute.

Day 18: A Song That You Wish You Heard On The Radio

I thought about posting a video of various awesome Canadian bands that I can’t listen to any more because I don’t have CBC. 😦 But then I remembered that I can really access them at any time on the web, but it’s weird that I’m in a different time zone from my ‘home’ stations. Also, I used to mostly listen to radio at work and in the car. Now I’m at a job where listening to the radio is kinda hard (very frequent interruption in person and on the phone), and the car is of course only local, since we don’t have satellite radio. Anyway, I thought I should include something that I love, but really DON’T hear on the radio, ever. Check out Pomplamoose. They are fantastic. They’ve recently been featured in Hyundai commercials!

30 Day Song Challenge – Day 15 & 16: Describe Hate

Day 15: A Song That Describes You

Oh rly? Well, this DOESN’T describe me, in a variety of ways, but I wish it did. Both in the way that I sort of wish it was raining so it’d cool down, and also that I wish I had this optimism. Does that count? 🙂


I like that he actually gets rained on, on stage, and people clap for it.

Day 16: A Song That You Used To Love But Now Hate

This one’s tough. I usually end up hating songs due to overexposure, but it’s not really the song’s fault. It’s the fault of local radio stations for being complete crap.  Anyways, tomorrow’s song day is about radio so I won’t get too much into it now. This one I used to really love though. I wouldn’t say I necessarily HATE it now (such a strong word), but I definitely like it much much less.  Also, it’s been on Glee, which makes it even MORE overexposed, since that’s the most overexposed show in existence, and I now like that show much much less than I used to (and have stopped watching).

Anyways, this video is stupid, and I also don’t like it, so watch it. Or don’t. I don’t mind either way. I’m sure I’ll get flack for saying that, because she’s being oh-so-creative and expressive with her interpretive dance and makeup/costumes… yeeeah. I still think it’s stupid. The poofy curly hair, and porcelain makeup remind me of all things I hated when I was a kid. Perms, and dolls. Yeah I said it.

On both videos you’ll have to click through to watch directly on youtube again. This is becoming a pain! Sorry. I hope people are actually doing that and listening to what I’m posting! 🙂 I unfortunately don’t have a way to embed the actual mp3s either. boourns.
