August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 30th

For song I find most relaxing, I’m going to go with Jewel’s Hands. It’s a pretty song about no matter who you are, how you can make a positive difference in the world.

August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 28th

As I’m sure it is for many of you, it’s hard for me to pick a favorite song. However, I do know what song has the best lyrics (in my opinion, anyway). The song is…New Wild West by Jewel!

You see the ghosts of the buffalo
Moving both fierce and slow
Like glittering prophesies
On the edge of the horizon

As you drive glittering highways
And beaten-up by-ways
That straddle and girdle
A great and many-faced nation

There are lambs in the ghettos
Who worship their Gapettos
Believing in, though never seeing
The strings they think bind them

So you write to our congressmen
With bleeding pens
Of the sorrow within
And in return they just send
Tickets to the latest Tom Hanks show

[CHORUS:]
Welcome to the new wild west
Each man for himself
A nation of civilized steeples
And lonely people
Welcome to the new wild west

There are so many fractions
And cue-card reactions
It’s hard to keep clear
The possibilities here
‘Cause there’s no force to unite them

Privilege has ruled for thousands of years
Wars have been fought with bibles and tears
Yet liberation can’t deny the temptation
And soon becomes the oppressor

Show me a leader who’s fit to lead
Who don’t sew his seed in anything
Wounded enough to breed
Because after all what fun is power
If you can’t act like a rock star?

[CHORUS]

See me, I’ve been cruel
I’ve been petty and unkind
But I know my own mind
And since it seems clear
There’s no one leading us here
The only thing left it appears
Is to task ourselves to be better each time
Then those before us

We’ll be an army of thieves
Of self-freed slaves
Of mild-mannered maids
We’ll fight with whispers and blades
So get ready, a new day is dawning

[CHORUS]

August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 26th

Today’s letter is ‘Z’ and I honestly have no favorites for that letter. While there will be some repeats (sorry!), I’ve decided to post pictures of artists who sing relaxing songs that you can fall asleep to!

August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 25th

Since I can’t think of any artists or bands that start with the letter ‘Y’, I’m going to list some singers and bands that I listened to when I was younger, but not really anymore. Some of these will be repeats.

Avril Lavigne

I know that musicians sometimes change over time, but Avril Lavigne changed a lot in my opinion. She went from being different and stating that she was unlike other singers, to seeming to want to conform. I loved her first two CDs but after that I kind of lost interest. Her music just changed drastically.

Maroon 5

Don’t get me wrong, I still like their older music and some of their newer stuff is okay. However, just like Avril Lavigne, I feel like they’re so concerned with being ‘popular’, that they kind of lost their touch.

Bowling for Soup

I was never a huge fan of the band, but I did like some of their songs. It’s not so much that I don’t like them now, I just haven’t heard any of their recent stuff (nor do I care to). I still do like a couple of their older songs though!

Teddy Geiger

Every time a Teddy Geiger song comes up on my iPod, I change it. I used to like him because his voice sounded a little like John Mayer’s, but now when I hear his voice, it just sounds so cheesy (John Mayer’s doesn’t, Teddy Geiger’s does!).

Who did you guys like when you were younger but not anymore? Are their any singers/bands that you like their older stuff still but not their newer stuff?

August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 24th

So I don’t have any singer/band favorites for the letter ‘X’. Therefore, for today’s challenge, I’ve decided to post a picture of a singer that I used to like when I was much younger but now can’t stand! Phil Collins. When I first saw Tarzan and heard the songs he wrote for the movie, I loved them. Now I can’t stand his voice. My dad’s a huge fan though and plays his stuff all the time. Yuck!

August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 22nd

V is definitely for…Vanessa Carlton! She has a beautiful voice and great songs! I love a good amount of her original work and I love her version of Paint It Black! SO good! I could listen to Unsung and Paint It Black every day! I must admit though, that my favorite disk was her first. After that, I think her music kind of changed and not in a good way.

August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 21st

Unfortunately, I don’t have any singers/bands for the letter ‘U’. Therefore, I’ve decided to post some more singers/bands that I like. Some of the singers I’ll list (like Gloria Estefan) have tons of songs that I love and some have just a few. So without further ado…

Okay as I was making this post, I thought of one for the letter ‘U’. Uncle Kracker!
