I don’t know what it is about this band, but damn, I find their songs so dark and sexy.

Tear You Apart
Take the World
Up in Flames

A sampling of a few of my favorites. 

 

This is my random pop culture post for the quarter. In no particular order, some songs that have been on my mind lately.

1) Pearl Jam – Just Breathe: I just love the lyrics (especially in the chorus) and melody.

I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t, I’m a fool, you see
No one knows this more than me
As I come clean.

For some reason, the chorus just breaks my heart every time I hear it. Lovely.

2) Drake – Marvin’s Room
(This isn’t the radio edit version, but I can’t find that for some reason. Oh well.) There are so many things to say about this song. Even though musically, I really enjoy this song, and the lyrics are a bit “deeper” than your typical R&B/hip hop crap, I still want to smack Drake across the face!

It’s just that it’s so typical. Drunk guy calls a girl he screwed over and expects her to drop everything and be with him and other nonsense. Then he spews THIS crap and I’m sure there are millions of women out there who will fall for this and think, “Oh, that poor man!” Wah. Cry me a river, you ASS.

Talk to me please, don’t have much to believe in
I need you right now, are you down to listen to me?
Too many drinks have been given to me
I got some women that’s living off me
Paid for their flights and hotels I’m ashamed
Bet that you know them, I won’t say no names
After a while girl they all seem the same
I’ve had sex four times this week I’ll explain
Having a hard time adjusting to fame

3) She Wants Revenge – Take the World
I have no idea what this song is about. It’s just sexy. 🙂

4) Maroon 5 – Moves Like Jagger
Oh, come on! How is the line, “Take me by the tongue and I’ll know you” not one of the hottest things you’ve ever heard? Ok, maybe not THE hottest, but it’s up there. Bonus: ADAM LEVINE is saying this. Rawr.

5) Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks
Yes, super creepy song, but such a cool chorus:

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Alright, thus ends my brief survey into music lately. I’m sure there are more interesting posts than this one out there, but I’m tired. Linking things up is hard work, you know.
