Two songs

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!


  1. We are currently rocking out to Magic by Rivers Cuomo/BoB. LOVE. So happy and dance-able. (I love We are young, too!)

    1. Ooh, I'll have to check that out. Sounds like an interesting combo. I saw Weezer in 2006 and they were pretty awesome.

  2. I recently blogged about some of my recent iPod additions, and the commenters had some good ones too:

    1. Oh yes, I meant to go back through those because they sounded good. Thanks!!


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

sharing is nice
