People tend to think I’m lying when I say I like all kinds of music. Seriously. If you mention even once that you enjoy kpop, in the minds of everyone around you, that’s ALL you listen to. I don’t really understand this mindset…or at least I didn’t until I met some of the psychotic kpop fangirls. They frightened me.
My taste in music is strange to say the least. It’s not a big passion in my life like it is with some people. I’m more of a visual person, so I could never just sit there listening to music for hours on end. It’s literally the most boring thing in the world to me. I also don’t like my music to be too loud and I don’t care if it’s in English or not because my hearing is so bad I can’t understand most lyrics anyway without multiple listenings.
But today I am in a musical mood. So I used a random online generator (www.random.org) to pick a few of my favorite songs. They were all anime songs, effectively making me look like a nerd. So I picked again and I think I still look like a nerd…but it’s not as bad as before. Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite songs.
1. HeyHiHello – Brighter Lights
I first heard this song when I was having this mini-meltdown. I don’t know what I was upset about, but I know this song cheered me up immediately. It had nothing to do with the fact that I’m kind of in love with the guy singing. Of course not.
2. “E”qual/Stronger ft. May J.
Oh god it’s Asian. Cue a bunch of people turning their noses up at it. I randomly heard this song on this one blog I was looking at. Usually I curse blogs with automatic music, but I fell in love with this one immediately. It’s so powerful. Though this is one I never bothered to look up the lyrics for, so it might not mean what I think it means. Ah well. It sounds pretty.
3. Hollywood Undead – Paradise Lost
…people look at me funny when they see I like this song. It’s like it’s not that big of a surprise that I like asian music, because I’m weird. Then I pull this baby out and people don’t know what to do. My friend introduced me to this group as a joke, thinking I’d hate it. Frankly, they’re alright. Not my favorite group. But this song! I love it so much and I’m not sure why. Probably because it’s amazing to listen to when you’re pissed off at the world. Try it. You’ll feel so much better.
4. Haibane Renmei OST – Free Bird
I am going to be outright spamming this blog with music from this OST. All of it is beautiful, but this is my absolute favorite. It’s so simple, yet it’s one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Don’t judge it too harshly because it’s from an anime. Most people do and they’re honestly missing out on this beautiful music.
5. Puccini – Madame Butterfly (extremely high note in the beginning, so lower your speakers at first)
I saved this one for last cause…heh. If you recognize the name you know why. This is from the opera Madame Butterfly. I know the song has an actual name in Italian, but I have no clue what it is so we’ll stick with that for now. This song makes me all girly and emotional, so I won’t get too in detail about what she’s singing about for now. Just try to listen and enjoy it. Or at the very least give it a chance. This is some classy stuff here. Pinkies up!
