Straight in, shall we?
1. Those Dancing Days - FuckariasSo some of you may be a bit iffy about the title of this song, paired with the fact that it's labelled explicit on iTunes. But never fear! The word is never dropped in the song and they're a Swedish band so it probably doesn't mean what we think it does. I still find it hilarious.
2. Empire Of The Sun - We Are The PeopleIn preparation for their highly anticipated second album, I thought I might have a song from their tremendously spectacular album Walking On A Dream. We Are The People has a great acoustic guitar backing track but my favourite part is the sort of bridge - different chord progression and a more complicated melody. I love it.
3. Electric Light Orchestra - Don't Bring Me DownIt's the 70's and you're bopping in your car with your poofy hair and bell bottomed pants (shudder). This song recreates those old vibes and your parents can probably sing along (I know mine can). It's a fun, driving song that it a lot of fun to dance to with friends on old movie marathon nights. Oh, and it was in that alien movie Paul.
4. Panic! At The Disco - The Only Difference Between Martyrdom And Suicide Is Press CoverageTheir debut album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, is infamous for it's extended song names that have nothing to do with the songs. This song has genius lyrics and a melody of an interesting composition. What, however, grabs you the most is the energy and movement you can sort of sense in the song - have a listen.
5. Imagine Dragons - Radioactive
Imagine Dragons have a spectacular 'big band' sound that you could imagine being blasted from every household in the world then bouncing off the ozone layer and reflecting everywhere. Basically, it's a very big sound. When you listen to Radioactive, you can imagine it being sung by everyone in the stadium at the top of their lungs and the electricity in the air buzzing around you. I love the song way too much.
Only problem with it was that it was used in the ads for 'The Host'. Ugh.
Well that's this Music Haul! Yay
