Unfortunately my car doesn't have an AUX jack where I can plug in my phone or iPod so I'm generally stuck listening to the radio. Since my commute is less than 5 minutes, or maybe 20 min total if I have to drop off T at preschool, I can't complain about this too much.
But there are two songs on the radio I'm absolutely loving these days. Sadly it's for their nostalgia factor. I remember being in college/early 20s and feeling invincible. Especially after drinking a lot.
Fun's "We Are Young" is such a cool song. It's actually got a very interesting structure and a different kind of sound, which I like. If I were more technical about music I could put my finger on what that is, but all I can say with my limited knowledge is that I like it. And I love the drunken swagger (that everyone else around thinks is people being loud and stupid). It sounds a tiny bit like a Queen song to me.
And how cool is it that the phone in the video is a Windows phone?!
The second one is similar, and a couple of months older. It's "Nothing" by The Script, and is about a guy who meets his buddies in the pub, gets really drunk and decides to tell his ex that he still loves her. Typical pop song content, but the lyrics are a lot more emotional than I expected. I mean, who hasn't been *that* person who gets the alcohol-fueled courage and makes regrettable phone calls (or visits)? Not me, of course.
My favorite lyric - "Every drunk step I take leads me to her door." You KNOW that's not going to end well.
I just found the videos for these today and neither band looks like I expected!
Got any songs you love that you have to share? I'm looking for new stuff to download!
