Songs I’m Addicted to This Week

It’s been a really slow week, I’ve hardly been motivated to write or find anything new in music…but of course, there’s no way I could go a week without listening to something!

1. Shiny Toy Guns – Le Disko – I had heard of Shiny Toy Guns and I had heard this song, but I never actually realized this was by them until just recently. Take equal parts – techno and girl-rock – and you’ll have this song. The first line is really the lyric that everyone seems to know.

2. Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah – I know this is a song that everyone seems to obsess over. Props to Cohen for doing the original, but really Buckley made this song amazing.

3. Marilyn Manson – Tainted Love – I’m not a big fan of Manson’s latest CD, the guitar parts were really lacking without John 5. So I’m still listening to classic Manson. His own music is pretty cool, but I love when he does covers. This is one of my favorite music videos too. Chyler Leigh makes out to be one of the hottest goth-chicks ever.

4. Flogging Molly – If I Ever Leave This World Alive – I’m not Irish, so I’m not totally obsessed with this band. But, I like their tunes and I think this one is very cool. It’s a sad, but fun song…in terms of lyrics about death.

5. Blink 182 – Not Now – The last ever song from Blink 182. Also one of their best and most mature. It’s a very fitting “goodbye” song.

6. Guano Apes – Open Your Eyes – You might recognize this from the late 90’s. I “re-found” this song a couple years ago while working at my college radio station. I had never known the song name nor who it was by until then. It’s a pretty cool tune and really catchy.

7. Monster in the Machine – Savior – I got this CD for free. Its pretty cool, nothing amazing to rave about. But, I really like this song, with its flow and baritone vocals.

8. Deftones – Passenger – It’s an underrated song off the Deftones’ White Pony album. Chino and Maynard James Keenan combine for a very eerie but great song. And, this also falls under the songs-with-cool-bridges catagory.

9. Seether – Six Gun Quota – One of the songs that are not a single from Seether’s newest album, 6GQ is really cool. Its just Seether doing their angst-filled alt.rock, with a real catchy chorus.

10. Strata – Cocaine – It has a very cool hand-drawn music video. Its a haunting song that anyone with a daughter or anyone who’s ever tried to pick up a girl from a club would fear. Plus, you’ve gotta love the lyric “she don’t like cocaine baby, just likes how it smells”
