Here it is ! The last year! It has been a dream to make it to this day! A dream I say! Now I can focus of the other subj….what? You mean…dammit! I still have 4 years after this one!? But, but…I don’t want to! It was hard enough filtering through all these songs! ::sigh:: Well…at least I was able to get out of this decade. Looking on the bright side and all. So…welcome to the end of the first decade.
Poker Face – Lady Gaga
There she is again! And she pops up a great deal over the next few years but this is the song that everyone will probably remember of hers in a thousand years when the future looks back on us and says “What the f*ck!” It also stems a rumor that it’s not “poker face” she is saying.
Fireflies – Owl City
Finally! I have come across a band that wasn’t tainted by Twilight! Even though this band is in the category of soft rock I can still see how people got it. It’s smooth, the lyrics are, dare I say it, beautiful and I don’t feel the need to stab myself with a infected pitchfork when I listen to them. That is always a plus.
Uprising – Muse
There are times when I want to smash my skull against a serrated concrete wall every time I hear this band. Know why? One wretched word:Twilight! I never knew one franchise could screw up so many lives! Don’t get me wrong I was a fan of the books (until #4 and then it was just glorified fan fiction) but since Muse was used on the first soundtrack and every preteen in the country ate it up there is now a part of my dark little heart that has been ripped out! Following that success you now hear them on the radio…pop radio!
Sound of Madness – Shinedown
Like I said before, I’m a big Shinedown fan and this is just a great song. This song influenced the Carnival of Madness Tour and was just cool to get great rock bands together in a scary world of pop.
Use Somebody – Kinds of Leon
And we now come to another band who took a ride on the Twilight wake of evil. No, they were never used on the soundtrack and yes, they are a good band but for some reason they tend to get thrown into the mix. I think it’s because the two main actors were spotted at a concert of theirs that everyone was all like “Oh! Edward and Bella like them” and then bought up the CD. I mean, you can’t go wrong with that chain of reasoning right!?
