Yeah, yeah, yeah. I skipped like 100 days in the 30 Day Song Challenge! So, uh, I’m going to combine days 5, 6, and 7. They’re fairly similar anyways. Basically songs that remind you of a person, place, and event.
It’s funny, but I don’t normally associate people with songs. I do with places and events like crazy. And usually the events are with a specific person in mind, so in a way it reminds me of them. I think this is good that I’m merging them all together because when I think about it these songs could fall under all 3 categories.
Day 5: Song that reminds you of someone
Backstreet Boys – Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)
Crayon Pop – Bar Bar Bar
This is what I love about K-Pop! Crayon Pop has got it all. The bright colours. The cute dances. Catchy easy to sing hooks. And helmets for no reason other than to look like the poor man’s Power Rangers. XD
So, it’s been a few days since I added to the 30 Day Song Challenge. It’s not really 30 days anymore, is it? XD I didn’t forget, I swear! I was struggling with this day’s challenge… sad songs.
No, I didn’t crumple into a heap of emo sobbing mess. Quite the opposite. I know there are songs out there that make me sad, but since I’ve been in a happy (or at the very least content) mood lately I found it difficult to remember any. Rather songs I did once find sad weren’t evoking that emotion out of me while I listened to them. I either became nonchalant or a tad frustrated. Go figure. I did come up with some. Although they don’t reflect my own sadness, I do find the subject matter heartbreaking.
Day 3: Song that makes me sad
Trevor Rabin – Harry & Grace Make Peace (“Armageddon”)
Continuation of the 30 Day Song Challenge. I’m moving right along. 😀 This is great at helping me get used to posting. It seems simple, but when you account all the hours that are in a day and when I allot them for other things… well, posting seems to get the short end. It’s good practice, yus!
Day 3: Song that makes me happy
The last challenge was a bit angry… It’s a good thing this one is on the lighter side. Like I said when I first started this blog, I have no intention of bringing negative vibes in here. It happens, but I do not want this to be a place of ranting. It kills the mood. 😛
Whose Line Is It Anyways? – You’ve Got Sole
XD Just thinking about this song makes me giggle. Without a doubt this is my go-to video when I want to smile and laugh. I don’t know what it is about it. It’s just so damn hilarious! I turn into a baby laughing uncontrollably at their father making silly noises. It’s a shame that Whose Line isn’t on tv anymore. Not even in syndication! It was a comedic goldmine! I highly recommend anyone who hasn’t (or even if you have) heard of it to go look up videos on Youtube. Right now! Do eet! I don’t mind, I promise. ^^ Good news is just last month the Gameshow Network started airing Drew Carey’s Improv-a-ganza. It’s pretty much the same thing without the points. I kinda miss the useless points… Bah! Small price to pay. Oh, and the awesome part about it is GTV has FULL EPISODES available on their site! And they don’t block Canadian IPs! 😀
Day 1 – My Favourite Songs
Day 2 – My Least Favourite Songs
H’okay, it’s Day 2 of The Song Challenge! Time to torture my ears…
Day 2: My Least Favourite Song
So, they’re not THAT bad. I’m actually quite open minded when it comes to music. I like a diverse selection of genres. Language boundries don’t even bother me. Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish… I don’t need to understand it to like it. I like to think of myself as easy going, so I’m not usually offended by bad language either. What qualifies as a bad song to me is a reminder of a bad time. *pause* Or it just annoyed the shit outta me.
Nelly – Hot In Herre
This is like one of my dreams. Reincarnated 80s versions of Michael Jackson and Madonna. Be careful what you wish for, right?
I had a hard time choosing what to put up here. I was going to put something more recent, but then I thought I should put up a prime example even though it’s a bit older. Then I thought, “fuck it” I’m gonna put 2 awesome mixes up. 😛
For the uninformed, these are mashups. Which means a bunch of songs butchered to death and put back together to create this awesome monster eargasam. The majority of the time I find myself preferring a mashup version of a song to the original. Sometimes they even drastically improve the original song to a point that it’s actually bearable to listen to hehe. As for “bootie” I could be wrong, but the full name of these types of songs is bootleg mashups. You can figure out the evolution from that.
Alright, MasaMixes has been around for awhile. He does a lot of K-Pop mashups. It’s unique in that I haven’t come across anyone else who does them and has done so many mixes. I’ve checked out his mixes from time to time in the past, but honestly the majority of them don’t interest me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not because they’re not good. I’m just not usually into the original material. BUT this summer that changed. His 2010 special mashup is perfectly executed in terms of flow, timing and catchy-ness. Not to mention I had the damn song stuck in my head for months. XD
You’ll notice it says pt. 1. Yes, I waited and waited for the time when pt. 2 would be released. I’m not gonna lie, I kinda looked forward to it at the end of the year. I tried not to get my expectations up too high because like most things that are great, it’s hard to replicate that same feeling. Mostly because they’re flukes heh. And this wouldn’t be any different. I wasn’t disappointed, but it didn’t blow me away either. It took a couple listens for it to grow on me and I grew to really dig it. It’s got good progression with nice breaks.
Btw if you can watch these in HD I would highly recommend it. Looks amazing 😀
