Tune in Tuesday {015}




Tune in Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. It's a fun way to share your favorite music with other bloggers and hopefully introduce them to so truly kickin' tunes :)



 


Jackson Waters - Center of Attention

Favorite Line: You think that you're the sun. That the whole world revolves around you. The center of attention and everything is drawn to you.

Me, oh my. I ADORE this song. I was going through all of my previous Tune in Tuesdays to make a list of songs I've already used and I was in shock when I realized this one wasn't on it. Can you imagine? So I decided to remedy the situation. immediatley. LISTEN TO IT. NOW. 

William Shatner - Common People (Pulp cover) 
Favorite Line: You'll never live like common people,you'll never do what common people do,
you'll never fail like common people, you'll never watch your life slide out of view,
and dance and drink and screw, because there's nothing else to do.

Oh, this reminds me of high school. I like the original version of this song, but the Shatner cover is just so much fun. My sister had this on a mix and I sort of adopted it. It became a staple of mine while I was in high school. I was able to get all my friends to love it too. So we'd drive around blasting it :)

 Christina Aguilera - Impossible

Favorite Line: This is not a circus, don't you play me for a clown. How long can emotions keep on running up and down?

STRIPPED was one of my favorite albums growing up. I played that CD into the ground. And Impossible is one of those songs that just stuck with me. It isn't as well known as some of her other songs, but it's just amazing. She's got Alicia Keys playing on the background track and the two of them together is just... undeniable. 

Switchfoot - Your Love is a Song
Favorite Line: With my eyes wide open, I've got my eyes wide open. I've been keeping my hopes unbroken.



I love every word. Every freaking word. 


Rilo Kiley - I Never
Favorite Line: In a place that exists in the pages of scripts and the songs that they sing and all of the beautiful things, that make you weep, but don't have to make you weak

Well, I told you all last week that I was crazy about Rilo Kiley. I think, although I cannot say for sure, but I think that I Never is my favorite. But don't hold me to it :)

Regina Spektor - On the Radio
Favorite Line: No, this is how it works. You peer inside yourself. You take the things you like and try to love the things you took. And then you take that love you made and stick it into some, someone else's heart - pumping someone else's blood. And walking arm in arm, you hope it don't get harmed. But even if it does, you'll just do it all again.

Ah, the song that introduced me to the lovely Regina Spektor. :) I was 16 and it was beautiful.

Tegan and Sara - Don't Confess
Favorite Line: You won't get better til your worse.// I'm not alone, I'm just on my own.


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these girls. I have every CD and I ADORE just about every song. I had the worst time choosing a song for today. I went through City Girl, Superstar, And Darling, SOIL SOIL and about 20 others.

Wow what a list. Willam Shatner is hilarious but common people has a certain charm, thanks for introducing to Teagan and Sara AMAZING like the rest of the list you have good taste.

I think you and I have a similar taste in music! Some of your picks are old favorites, but I added some new ones to my playlist as well (Your Love is a Song and I Never). I think I'm really going to like Rilo Kiley! Hmm...I think I'm going to have to go and check out your backlog of Tune in Tuesday posts, Sarah! :)

I loved the Switchfoot song, and I had only heard one other song by them before, but now I'm thinking I need to find out more about them.

I must say, this is the first time I've heard I Never and I LOVE it! It is such a great song. Also, <3 Switchfoot big time!
