Are y'all ready for an admission? Promise you won't think I'm super-psycho? (Kelly, I know you will...just go with it and still be my friend.) I'm going public with some musical appreciation that I've selected for a very special playlist on my Pod. Only a select few are aware of its existence. Internets, feel the love...get your groove on...it's time for songs from my Vampire Soliloquy.
Yes, I said it. I have a "vampire playlist" on my iPod.
It's been there for a long while, with songs coming & going wherever my whims take me on a particular day. Many of you who are reading or have read the Twilight Saga are aware of Stephenie Meyer's musical playlists for each book, posted on her website. Some of her choices are on my Vampire Soliloquy, because she has fantastic taste in music and I dig the same stuff. And then I have songs I've loved for years, new stuff I've just discovered, and recommendations from fellow friends.
This music makes for great reading, y'all. And pool lounging. And blogging. And late-night drives. Good music. Good times. And part of the soundtrack of my life.
Allow me to share, please:
"Your Guardian Angel" by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. It's sweet. Touching. Tender. Very Edward and Bellaesque. Teenage love and angst. I'll say no more.
"For Me This is Heaven" by Jimmy Eat World. One of the most underrated love songs. Ever. Almost too sweet to be vampy, but it's on the list anyway.
The Fray's Look After You. The newest addition to my playlist, thanks to a song-savvy pal. There is no video for this song, however some genius fan uploaded pictures of the band, as well as the song's lyrics on You Tube. Go ahead...watch...see if you don't get all mushy-gushy inside. The lyrics in Look After You just slay me. Yes, they do.
Other tunes on my Soliloquy include:
"On Your Side"--Luna Halo
"Learning to Breathe"--Switchfoot
"Blackout," "Hysteria," and "Falling Away With You"--Muse
"Letting the Cables Sleep" and "Out of This World"--Bush
"The Kill"--30 Seconds to Mars
"Mad World"--Gary Jules
"Bring Me to Life"--Evanescence
"6 Underground"--Sneaker Pimps
"So Alive"--Love & Rockets
Just to name a few. Are y'all getting the gist of my love of music? Yeah, it's a very big deal to me.
Are y'all still my friends, or have I completely scared you off?
