• Top 15 Meme

    11 avr. 2010, 19h39m

    i haven't done anything/looked at my in forever! and i feel that i must make up for this by doing a late night, really quick music meme. ripped this off... uh, someone i can't remember. my apologies.

    Simple concept: Top 15 artists....
    the first song you heard by the artist, song that made you fall in love with them and your current favorite song.

    1. Owl City
    first song: The Saltwater Room
    fell in love with: The Saltwater Room. what can I say, was in an electronic schmoopy mood.
    current fave: either Hello Seattle or Vanilla Twilight. cliche, i know. so many people say that this guy is overrated, and i'll acknowledge that there's some truth to it... but in the end, owl city's music is all about what it makes me feel. and man, do i feel.

    2. A Fine Frenzy
    first song: Near to You, because of some Chuck/Blair fanvid on youtube.
    fell in love with: Almost Lover, as everyone else who hears this song does. HEART WRENCHING MUCH.
    current fave: Last of Days. the stuff from her second album is awesome too though, but i'm retiring from it and going back to her old stuff.

    3. Jack's Mannequin
    first song: The Mixed Tape
    fell in love with: The Resolution. i was always a big fan, but when i heard this song i could NOT listen to anything else for at least a solid week. it's the message and the melody and the way they both intertwine into this great... thing. yeah, eloquent lol.
    current fave: i don't know considering i haven't listened to him for a while, so probably still The Resolution. oh wait, i'm listening to American Love right now! and liking it, so this one? big hearts, big hearts are for breaking.

    4. Kelly Clarkson
    first song: A Moment Like This, haha. still the best cheese idol ever produced. suck it Magic Rainbows and No Boundaries. =p
    fell in love with: Haunted, cause i couldn't stop playing it when i first downloaded the album. that's what made me a My December stan, when i was hardcore about kelly! now I'm still a stan, but i acknowledge that even my favorite kelly album had its flaws.
    current fave: Ready. mm, that line "too much of your mouth is like too much sun" has been stuck in my head for the past year.

    5. The Hush Sound
    first song: We Intertwined, because i randomly downloaded their Like Vines album from some music blog and that was the first song that came on.
    fell in love with: Sweet Tangerine
    current fave: Not Your Concern

    6. David Archuleta
    first song: does his idol audition where he sang mayer's Waiting on the World to Change count? if not, then Crush.
    fell in love with: Touch My Hand. ngl Crush was so epic, but when i listened to the clip of Touch My Hand, i was a GONER. of course, hearing the full version? made me stan this guy so hard, and to this day i still do.
    current fave: My Hands... would've been an epic single, just saying. and then David could've been known as the guy-who-sings-about-hands. jazz hands!

    7. Nina Simone
    first song: Feeling Good, of course. hundreds of versions can be sung, but no one will sing it better than her. gtfo Michael Buble, coughcough.
    fell in love with: Ain't Got No (I Got Life). even as a stupid teenager i jammed to this epic thing of a song.
    current fave: Sinnerman, but like Jack's Mannequin i haven't listened to her in a while. really need to start changing that.

    8. The Perishers
    first song: Sway, again because of a youtube fanvid. can't remember the couple though.
    fell in love with: My Heart. when people say "oh this song is so pretty!" and you listen to that song, and you kinda understand what they mean? that's this song. that's a lot of their songs actually.
    current fave: Trouble Sleeping. aw, i need to listen to these guys again too!

    9. Carrie Underwood
    first song: Jesus Take The Wheel, haha. i remember during season 5 of idol i was listening to this blonde chick sing this song, and i was like, "huh. this is cool." little did i know that several years later she'd be my constant idol girlcrush.
    fell in love with: The Night Before (Life Goes On), pretty underrated as far as Carrie's songs go imo.
    current fave: Someday When I Stop Loving You. lol the irony of singing a heartbreak song while you're getting hitched to a canadian hockey player. kay carrie, whatever you sing.

    10. The Fray
    first song: Over My Head (Cable Car)
    fell in love with: Vienna... lovely, lovely, lovely song. at one point was my favorite song ever. don't get me wrong i still love it hard, but i listen to it now and it doesn't have that same impact.
    current fave: City Hall, interesting because i was jamming to this today. oh it's my funeral today, my funeral today.

    11. Natasha Bedingfield
    first song: These Words
    fell in love with: Put Your Arms Around Me or Love Like This... can't remember which one i fell for first, haha.
    Current Fave: I Bruise Easily, probably. which reminds me that i still haven't listened to the leaks from her fourth album! =(

    12. Spoon
    first song: Eddie's Ragga, mm jam from the beginning.
    Fell in Love with: Don't You Evah. i think this is the only song that can have "Evah" in the title and i will love it for it. so sassy.
    Current Fave: Don't Make Me a Target

    13. Incubus
    first song: Drive, from yep you guessed it, Surf's Up! don't get me wrong i know i heard that song from way earlier, just can't remember when. and when i heard it on Surf's Up! it was my first time to like, acknowledge incubus lmao.
    fell in love with: Love Hurts
    current fave: Rogues

    14. Taylor Swift
    first song: Teardrops on My Guitar. haha argh, i still hate the sap. i can't listen to the song anymore without subtly cringing.
    fell in love with: Cold as You
    current fave: Untouchable, arguably her best cover.

    15. Blip Blip Bleep
    first song: Wireless
    fell in love with: Wireless, unf so incredible. genius song, even smarter jam.
    current fave: Da Me Cinco. makes me wish i was cool enough to party so i could DJ and plug this in and just daaance.

    well there you go, i actually feel kinda accomplished now. yeah i'm sad. =D

    Now answer the questions according to the numbers:

    What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
    Near to You, which I still love to this day. I remember stumbling upon it on youtube.

    What is your favorite album by 2?
    I'd have to say their latest one, Goodbye Blues. I still think their So Sudden album had some really good tracks, but Goodbye Blues is overall more powerful. Plus I love the jazzy vibe some of the songs have. Their debut album was nice too, had quite a bit of filler though.

    What is your favorite lyric that 1 has sung?
    NOW THAT'S HARD. I wanna say, everything in Works for Me. Especially the bridge though. "There were days when a song could not be found, there were days that my voice would make no sound for me, FUH MEEEE." Love it.

    How many times have you seen 11 live?
    Zero. It would be nice if I could though.

    What is your favorite song by 7?
    That would have to be Put Your Arms Around Me. I like the peaceful and pretty vibe the song has. Plus her vocals are sweet. :D

    What is a good memory you have involving 20?
    LOL. Um. None that I can recall...? Last good memory I had of him was when he sang "Music Of The Night" on Idol. After that, he kinda went downhill for me.

    Is there a song by 3 that makes you sad?
    Caves makes me a little melancholy.

    What is your favorite lyric that 14 has sung?
    The "every step closer is a step that we both will regret" in their song Now It's Done.

    What is your favorite song by 19?
    I LOVE ROGUES. I think some of their other songs are little overrated, but Rogues is awesome.

    How did you get in to 22?
    Ew lol, these guys are such guilty pleasures. I guess when I heard their song How You Remind Me. I think that's what it was called? Yeah hmm, and I found Far Away pretty catchy. Not gonna lie, most of their stuff is pretty catchy.

    What was the first song you heard by 21?
    I don't remember... :/ I'm pretty sure it was Mr. Therapy Man. Awesome song.

    What is your favorite song by 4?
    NINA. <3 I can't pick just one. It's a tie between Ain't Got No (I Got Life) and Sinnerman.

    How many times have you seen 10 live?
    None. Not sure if I'd enjoy it, haha. Probably too loud live for my tastes.

    What is a good memory you have involving 13?
    Mmm. Don't have any. :O

    Is there a song by 23 that makes you sad?
    Not really. I guess Miserable at Best.

    What is your favorite album of 15?
    Sadly, he only has one. Which sucks because I love this dude and his fro.

    What is your favorite lyric that 9 has sung?
    omg, Carrie! Always and forever my blonde country girl crush. Nothing in particular comes to mind, but I like the verses in Just a Dream and the chorus in Sometimes You Leave.

    What is your favorite song by 8?
    Wireless is like, my ultimate jam.

    What is your favorite song by 16?
    Aw, well. She has a lot of great songs. My favorite at the moment is Music In My Soul. But then for a while it was Remote Control Me, just because I loved the gritty pop vibe. Then there's also My Ungrateful Heart which is nice and PRETTY. It's hard to pick just one.

    How many times have you seen 5 live?
    None. Now these guys I'd LOVE to see live. Sobsob.

    What is your favorite album by 12?
    I'd have to say both of her albums are pretty on par for me. I think I prefer her debut though. She has some nice stuff on her second album, but the first has less filler. Then again, her second album had some of her best songs ever. idk I find Taylor Swift a little overrated in general though.

    What is a good memory you have involving 25?
    Jason's so cool. I liked it when he mentioned David Archuleta in an interview, that was frickin' sweet.

    What was the first song you heard by 18?

    What is your favorite song by 17?
    ohmygod, his latest album is awesome. I have a new favorite everyday. I think my overall favorite though is Amazing (feat. Young Jeezy). lol the guy's got an ego, but he's got the talent to back it up.

    What is your favorite album by 24?
    Her debut.
