Recently, life has been a tad complicated, and music has helped me stay awake and get through it. My friend also constantly insulted my musical taste (ironically, he has NO idea what I listen to), so I was determined to expand my musical palate. I have a 32 gig MP3 player to fill, and I previously only had about 10GB of music. Compared to most people, that’s not a lot at all! So, I decided to look for more music I like. Coincidentally, Scott Pilgrim came out around the same time, which made my search a little easier. My two favorite songs, by far, are “Scott Pilgrim” by Plumtree and “Black Sheep” by Metric.
There are two versions of Black Sheep- one is the original, and there is a second version that you hear during the movie. I personally like the original and will be spamming my favorite karaoke spot until they add the song.
Besides movie soundtracks, I also found this song by MSTRKRFT interesting. Thanks to John Legend for making it sound ultra-awesome.
That’s not the official video, it’s a game called Audiosurf.
AND DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON CALVIN HARRIS. He is hilariously awesome. I love him.
You Used to Hold Me
Besides these four songs, I also found a site called Stereogum that will help me keep track of bands and musicians that appeal to me. It’s a pretty cool place that also features new track releases and free downloads.
Next, I’ll have to once again refine my fashion sense and find my way to some concerts.
