Songs Stuck in My Head

Here is a song by Ben Folds who covered a Dre Dre song. This is a live version from Bonaroo. The lyrics are very explicit so I apologize for that, but it's still a great song. With the audience singing a long in this one, it really becomes powerful. Have a listen.

Andy Samburg has made a lot of hilarious music videos over the years and this one is no exception. "I Threw it on the Ground"! I kinda want to remix this song, same with the one above.


Not sure how this one got stuck in my head. It's an older one by Linkin Park called Papercut. I used to be a big fan of these guys back in the day. Still good.

Update 1-23-14 Songs get stuck in my head more than ever now. It seems any time I hear a song, even if it is just a quick clip, it will be looping in my head for hours. It's bad when you get a really catch song stuck in your head and no matter how hard you try, it just keeps playing. I have actually started to avoid music because of this or at lease make sure to never listen to a song more than once in a row otherwise I'm doomed. Anyone else have this problem?

December Music Recommendation

So it has been a while since I have posted an update. I haven't been following music as closely these days. You really need to have a lot of free time to stay on top of the current music scene and I guess I have been busy with other things. I kinda feel like I have accumulated a lifetime worth of music already so I don't really need any more hehe. But, there are always a few new songs to check out.

The newest band I have taken a liking to is called The Teenagers. They are a band with kind of an indie rock sound mixed with a little electronica. Their music is a little raw and unpolished, but the content is great. It's the kind of music that can be remixed into amazing songs. Here's one of their hit's called "Feeling Better" It's an anthem. Pardon the Gossip Girl video, just listen to the song.


Next song rec, one by a band called Bran Van 3000 called "Drinking in L.A." This is one from the 90's that I recently discovered. Can't believe I never heard it back then. It totally has that 90's alt rock sound I am fond of. It has a laid back style and a very catchy chorus. Have a listen:


Any Lady Sovereign fans out there? If not, you might not like this one. If so, and you haven't heard this one, check it out! It's her 1st rapping appearance, on a track called "The Battle" featuring a few other rappers of the same style. This is SOV ripping it up on the mic. She doesn't even sound like this anymore. Her new songs are good, but I just love this style.
