#100 A song. Actually, not just a song. THE SONG.
I don’t understand who wrote these prompts. What do you mean THE song??? As if there is just one.
I’ve considered the following:
A Match Made in Heaven. Any song you only need to hear the first few seconds of to love, it has to be on this list. But I already mentioned this song. So often I probably don’t need to mention that it’s an Architects track.
It’s not enough. Desperation. Pessimism. Two of my favorite topics in music. Or in life in general. This Dustin Kensrue track has it. But also this one has been mentioned already. At least once. Not sure if it was as a part of the challenge, but I’ve defenitely written about it on this blog before.
The Kill. Used to listen to on repeat back when I finally couldn’t resist 30 seconds to Mars anymore (not sure why I was trying to resist, but I def was), and I still love it. Also the only song I can still play on the piano. Probably.
Famous Last Words. What I just said! Except for it’s My Chemical Romance and not 30STM, and I can’t play it. But only because I didn’t even try it (?).
The World’s a Girl. Definitely mentioned this Anita Lane track before. Absolutely in love with the simplicity of this song. It’s a repeater!
Throne. This is such a brilliant song. Perfect mix of catchy and threatening. And I’ve mentioned it already. In several contexts. Should be noted I’ve stopped hoping it’s going to be included in a workout class playlist. Because apparently people don’t know of this song. I can’t see any other possible reason I’ve never been to a workout class where they played this song. Unless it’s not people who’re unfamiliar with this song, unless it’s Swedes in particular who’ve just not heard about Bring Me the Horizon to any extent?
Blossom. Repeat, repeat! Any song you can listen to on repeat and not hate, it’s a good one. The only way it could be any better is if it was in their native tongue. Burning Down Alaska (or Alazka as they’re now know as, not sure I approve of this name change) are from Germany, maybe not part of common knowledge?
Out of the woods. This was going to be my pick up until a few seconds ago (or about a month ago, because I’m scheduling way ahead). Because I love a good pop song as much as the next guy (anyone who claims to not like pop is flat out lying). I love Out of the Woods to a point where I’ve actually bought it especially on account of it not being available on Spotify, and it’s the only service streaming music I’ll use. Result: I can listen to the damned song on my iPad only. I ain’t happy about it. One of these days I’ll figure out how to work around it…
Instead, my pick is going to be the Robyn/Röyksopp collab Monument.
Do I need to explain why?
When this song was released I burst out into a This song is so brilliant the rest of the album could suck and it’d still be a brilliant record. Unlike [insert name of band I liked up until their latest release here].
