Butter-fly by Kouji Wada

My favourite J-pop song, childhood memories of Digimon!

I always get to a trance when I hear this song and I can sing the whole song without lyrics or music!

I can still quote word-for-word the original pokémon theme song. I doubt I'm alone on this site. And I haven't heard that for years.

Right now I'm listening to X&Y by Coldplay, as they tweeted or Facebooked that it was 8 years old today. And just realising how good it is all over again.

Yet the whole time, blurred lines is running through my head :/

Can never get the YouTube embed to work, so here's a link:

Blurred Lines video
Surprisingly funny Radio 1 spoof video + interview

It's nearly as catchy as We No Speak Americano...

Santana — She's Not There

Well let me tell you 'bout the way she looked, the way she acted, the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool, her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there

You can't go wrong with Santana.

Breaking BenjaminDiary of Jane

"Something's getting in the way.
Something's just about to break.
I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
As I burn another page,
As I look the other way.
I still try to find my place in the diary of Jane."


They played this song just a bit too much back when it came out, but it's still pretty good.

The Postal Service- Grow Old With Me

I just need to listen to another Postal Service song to get another one, "Turn Around" out of my head. This is a really beautiful song. Lyrics are pretty sweet.

LudoLake Pontchartrain

Unfortunately there's no video for it, but here's the lyrics:

Spoiler:

I'll tell it like it happened, it was Darius and Noland and me
just a few po' boys trying to get up out of Missouri.
Took 55 Louisiana, stopped by the highway to eat
They both had crawfish, strictly chicken for me
Back out under thunderheads, the radio was Southern soul.
They interrupted Clarence Carter with a strange-ass local show.
They were sayin':

"Come down to Lake Pontchartrain
Rest your soul and feed your brain
That's where you will get to see everything the water can be."

The rain was comin' down, the wind was howlin' outside of Slidell
It was the kinda night that makes you think the whole world's goin' to hell
We got off on an exit 'cause we couldn't read the map so great
Near the Choctaw Motel, we parked to deliberate
when out of the bayou came a man like the lake had a tounge.
He was right up on the glass, all yellow-eyed, black teeth, bangin' on the windshield
screamin' like a demon at the top of his lungs:

"Come down to Lake Pontchartrain
Rest your soul and feed your brain
Free for you and all your friends, crawfish 'til the bitter end.
Come down to Lake Pontchartrain
Wade to where the shallows break
That's where you will get to see everything the water can be."

I was drivin' outta there as fast as a Camry could
but the interstate was flooded and I had to take the road through the woods.
Bad move in retrospect, the road disappeared in the rain
and I stood on the break when I saw the sign:
"Lake Pontchartrain..."
Darius was yelling that he saw somebody out in the swells.
He jumped out runnin' and Noland was goin' as well.
"Come back!" Why the hell would they leave the car?
And that's when I heard it - make no mistake
- the voices were calling them from under the lake:

"Come down to Lake Pontchartrain...
Come down to Lake Pontchartrain...
Come down to Lake Pontchartrain...
Come down to Lake Pontchartrain..."

The crawfish were screaming, the waves danced in time
My friends went in deeper, the water, it climbed
I watched in terror, the lake opened wide
and horribly roaring, it pulled them inside.
That's how it happened, why would I lie?
There were no bodies, I've got none to hide.
I'm just a boy, lost his friends in the rain
Any more questions, just go and ask Lake Pontchartrain.



I love the lyrics for this song, they're so twisted. :}

As for me, I'm listening to:

It's a pretty good song, not my favorite from them, though.

The video in itself is weird as hell, but the song is absolutely awesome. I listen to it all the time; playing Tetris, playing Combat Arms, walkin' down to the store... it's a good song.

Flobots- Handlebars

I used to hate this song cause of how bratty I thought it sounded until I read this on Wikipedia.
Quote:
Jamie Laurie stated that the song "is about the idea that we have so much incredible potential as human beings to be destructive or to be creative." "And it's tragic to me that the appetite for military innovation is endless, but when it comes to taking on a project like ending world hunger, it's seen as outlandish. It's not treated with the same seriousness. [...] at the same time, I knew there were people at that moment who were being bombed by our own country. And I thought that was incredibly powerful." It is the contrast between these "little moments of creativity, these bursts of innovation," and the way these ideas are put to use "to oppress and destroy people" that the singer feels is both "beautiful and tragic at the same time."
And now I'm thinking this might be more positive of a song than I thought. It's so wonderful.
