Musical Obsessions

Playing: Indie Rock and Roll-The Killers
Reading: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Hi everyone! I'm one of those people that develops a strong liking for things quickly, whether it be music or people. I tend to obsess over whatever it may be until I calm down a bit and then I might be tired of it, still love it tremendously, or  have found a friend, who likes it too and now has someone to obsess over it with. Here are some of my recent musical obsessions!

The Killers-I've been listening to a lot of music from The Killers lately and this is my favorite song by them so far because I love everything about it. The chorus sounds great, the music video is beautiful to watch, the costumes in it are stunning, Brandon Flower's hand movements are theatrical, but I like it that way, and the storyline reminds me of Moulin Rouge. I like how Brandon Flower's voice is kind of punky and smooth at the same time and how it's deep too. Overall, I just like Brandon Flowers a lot and it doesn't hurt that he's good looking. Such a shame I'm too young for him, but he's married, so no point in wishing for something impossible.

"Up the Junction" by Squeeze-I first heard this song, while walking around the miu miu store and ever since then I've been humming this song in my head. My uncle heard me playing this song and was surprised I was listening to Squeeze and said, "That's some old music you're listening to." Yes, I like listening to music that's older than me. But I like the breezy, summer time feel to it and I think you'd like it too.

"Paris or India" by the Midway State-I like the dreaminess of this song and how his voice is breathy and light. It's kind of carefree and has this feel to it that I really dig. It's kind of this light electronica dream feeling. It's hard to explain, but I just like this type of music that sounds breathy and dreamy. I sound like an idiot. Yes, I know.

One Direction- According to a majority of my friends, they can't sing and they look like girls, but whatever, I still like them. I just like boy bands in general because I like good looking guys singing cheesy love songs and wearing nice clothes. I have to admit, I mainly like Louis' face and that's the main attraction for me with them.  I would like it, if they stopped dressing all of them in jeans that are too tight for them though. That'd be nice. Their music is corny, I admit it, but I love cheesy love songs and I like cute guys, so it's a win-win for me. It's so odd how I like boy bands, when most of the music I like is classified as alternative rock or punk pop...

"We Are Young" by Fun. Feat. Janelle Monáe-I really enjoy the chorus and I like how the singer sings, "We set the world on fire." His voice is just very pleasant to listen to and when he sings along with Janelle, it's just incredible. I also like the message of being young and not caring too much. It's just that simple. I can listen to this song again and again.

  6. Mr. Brightside by The Killers
    is a good song but not my
    favorite of them :P

    I've noticed that this boy
    band 'One Direction' is a
    raising group... but for some
    reason never want to try it
    out. Maybe they look 'girly'
    lols. Anyways I've tried
    the one called 'What Makes
    You Beautiful'. It was okay.


  7. i really love one thing and we are young!

  11. These songs are interesting! I have been listening to Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons, The fray......
    Have a lovely weekend!

  12. We Are Young has def been one of those songs that just pop into my head and I can't stop singing it, but I have Big Bang's latest album on neverending repeat ;P

  13. Joana-The Great Gatsby was pretty good, but the ending was abrupt in my opinion. I would've liked some things in the book to have been explained more fully.

    NaNa-Most boy band music is very catchy and that's what's nice about them. You know what type of music to expect from them and they're not going go try to be something they're not. It's nice once in awhile. :)

    Ice Pandora-What's your favorite song by the Killers? :3

    Nathalie Kartika Putri-Both of the songs are so good! :)

    LC-You're welcome! ^^

    Sophie-Ooh, you like the Killers too? NICE! :D

    tywo-Ooh, I saw the Fray live once and they were amazing! c:

    FashionableAsians-I haven't listened to K-pop in years, so I'm guessing Big Bang is still popular?

  14. Fashion Freak/Mihaela-Aww, thank you dear! ^^
