30 Day Song Challenge: Day 3/Music Tuesday

Before we get too into this challenge I wanted to explain something about the way I listen to music. I don’t listen to the lyrics of a song, and I don’t care what is being said. I listen to the vocals in the same way I do any other instrument in the band. I just listen to the way things sound and how they make me feel. So someday I may post a song that may lyrically seem inappropriate, but just know that I don’t care. 🙂

So today’s music Tuesday/ day 3 of 30 day song challenge is Hell by Tegan and Sara.

There are so many songs I could put here, but I will go with this one:

I think this is just a bad song in general, but it was made worse by the fact that it seemed like every girl wanted it to their and their boyfriend’s “song”. I guess the didn’t take the time to listen to what the song was talking about, lol. Now after seeing what this band looks like for the first time I hate this song/band on a whole new level.

Enjoy! err, well, please don’t enjoy!

It’s hard for me to think of a favorite song so I will just put the song that means the most to me.

 

Napster, Nike+, Music Tuesday: Cave In – Trepanning

I currently have 6 months of free Napster and 25 of their credits to buy music. I got it because my Best Buy rewards zone thing got upgraded to their premium silver rewards zone thing when I bought Julie and I our iMacs. I don’t think I would ever pay a monthly fee for Napster, but I am enjoying it while I have it. The interesting/crappy thing I have notice about Napster is that it doesn’t seem to distinguish between a full length album and an EP when you are buying music. You can buy an individual track for 1 credit ($1) or the entire album for 9-10 credits. So it doesn’t matter if it is a 14 track album or a 2 track EP they would have you pay 9-10 credits… But if the album is under 10 tracks you can just buy the songs individually and significantly less in the case of the 2 track EP. I checked on iTunes and it seems Apple does distinguish between full albums and EPs. Napster needs to get their shit together on that because that could cost people a lot of money if they don’t realize they can just buy the tracks individually.

Also from buying our iMacs I got my reward zone points up to the point of having $50 in reward zone gift cards. So I decided to buy up the Nike+ sensors for our phones so we could track our walking. I’m pretty excited about it because for me it really helps keep me motivated when I can see my progress over time. Also when I get my weight down I want to start jogging and running so this will help me track that progress over time. You can upload your data to the Nike+ website and it will apparently chart out your walks/runs for you. I’ll do a follow up review later after we have used them some.

For music Tuesday I have chosen a track off of Cave In’s Perfect Pitch Black album called Trepanning. I love this album so much, but I know it is not something everyone will like (even if you love Cave In). Anyway, enjoy! (maybe)

 

Music Tuesday: Mumford & Sons – Winter Winds

So a while back ago I heard Mumford & Sons on one of my Pandora stations and instantly fell in love. Then like a week later I turned on the radio and they were playing them on the radio. This is a band that really deserves to make it really big. Their music is just so damn good. Another great thing is that they are even amazing live, judging by the grammy performance and the live bonus disc on their album.
