as the concentration continually breaks // i did request the mark you cast didn’t heal as fast // i hear your voice in silences // will the teasing of the fire be followed by the thud

Playlist 2: Getcha Move On//Solo Dance Parties

Originally posted by miss-broken-dreams

I am nowhere near a decent dancer, but I actually love to shake it off. It’s quite condescending how society stares at me if I ever dare to dance in public. I’m not having a seizure, thank you very much.

Anyways, here are a list of songs that I always dance to during special events I’d like to call “solo dance parties”. It’s basically me in my room with my stereo on and music blaring through it, annoying my neighbors. Here we go!

1. Closer - Tegan and Sara

I first heard it right before a Demi Lovato concert and it was so addicting, right after the first listen. “I won’t treat you like you’re typical whoa oh whoa oh oh on” is forever stuck in my head. I guarantee that you would be lift off your feet once you hear the chorus.

2. Welcome to New York - Taylor Swift (Madlike Remix)

One of the reasons I love Soundcloud as a way to discover music is that I can just type in a song title and various remixes by DJs who haven’t necessarily received accolades for their works show up on the first page. This Madlike remix got me dancing and mini-jumping in my car. How could you mini jump in a car? I don’t even know.

3. Little White Clouds - One Direction (mashup by akhalil music)

Little White Lies was one of the tracks in Midnight Memories (my favorite One Direction record, so far) which its “If this room was burning, I wouldn’t even notice” lyric comes up subconsciously in my mind whenever somebody I’m talking to is clearly giving me bull. Its upbeat melody, turns out, is a perfect match to Clouds, taken from Four. Who knew? Clouds itself has earned a place in my good books because of Harry Styles’ live interpretation of this song. Ultimately, this mashup is definitely what dreams are made of.

4. Where Are U Now - Skrillex, Diplo feat Justin Bieber

Like I have said once before, I’m not big on EDM. I only know Skrillex and Diplo as names vaguely mentioned in my twitter timeline. Oh, and also I heard of Diplo because of his ‘fight’ with Lorde (YOU GO LORDE COCO). This song, however, reignited my faith in the good of EDM and Justin Bieber, who has done who knows what over the last couple of years.

5. 7/11 - Beyonce

This song’s genre is a bit odd compared to the others, but I treat this as a moment of down time to sluggishly move around for three minutes or so while basking in the glory of the one and only Queen B. Listen to the lyrics intently and do what she says. Shoulders sideways. Smack it in the air. Move your legs side to side. Okay, ladies, you’ve got this.

6. Dance, Dance - Fall Out Boy

They do say that you’ve got to always come out with a bang. Dance, Dance is one of my all-time favorites of Fall Out Boy. I first heard about it in one of the Princess Diaries books. And thank God for Mia Thermopolis–she got me into the alt, punk version of N*SYNC. I can’t really quote any lyrics from this song, or any other Fall Out Boy songs as a matter of fact, so just trust me with this one. I’ve got it.

Here’s the link to the playlist I’ve made on Soundcloud!

Artists: Tegan and Sara, Taylor Swift, Madlike, One Direction, Skrillex, Diplo, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Fall Out Boy

Genres: Alt pop, EDM, electropop, pop rock, pop punk, hip hop

A couple of weeks ago we posted the track to this song by Darwin Deez, and the band have now uploaded a new music video for this track!

I have been a fan of Darwin Deez’s music for years ago, and I am so excited to hear this new track “Kill Your Attitude”.! People might remember their infamous song “Radar Detector” which was quite renowned, however they return now with a new album on the horizon! Their music is special because it’s a care-free type of indie pop, it’s always fun and energetic, and not so serious, and this new track is a great feel-good track, perfect to bop your head along to and to include in your car playlist. - Ali

Here’s a giant 800-track alt/indie-focused 90's playlist in chronological order — Medium

From 1990 - 1999 I spent my most formative years from ages 14 to 24. Music was all there was for me. I can attest that this decade was the greatest one as far as music was concerned. Nothing will ever be as great as the 90’s. This playlist makes me very, very happy. Still, could’ve done without the Sarah Maclachlan. Her popping up right after My Bloody Valentine really threw me off.

This song is so 90’s… and so Incredible! Every time I play it, I get chills. Find the album “You’d Prefer an Astronaut”.  You won’t regret picking it up.

Spoon Album Rankings

Like the list of Spoon songs, this ranking is beyond difficult. Especially with a group known for their pure consistency and high quality output, the ranking of Spoon’s albums is one that is very open to interpretation and often argued about. Enough lead-up; here’s my rankings and overview:

1) Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007): 97/100
2) Gimme Fiction (2005): 96/100
3) Girls Can Tell (2001): 94/100
4) Kill The Moonlight (2002): 93/100
5) They Want My Soul (2014): 90/100
6) A Series of Sneaks (1998): 83/100
7) Transference (2010): 82/100
8) Telephono (1996): 77/10

Overview:

7) “Transference” (2010):
Begging for pop/radio suicide, they can’t seem to do anything wrong even if they try. The “odd” one out, also the one that grows on you, a nice, weirdly attractive rough cut (Who Makes Your Money, Nobody Gets Me But You) that satisfies with a few nice hits (Written In Reverse, Got Nuffin).

6) “A Series of Sneaks” (1998):
A superb occasional listening experience, several standouts (Utilitarian, Advance Cassette, Metal Detektor), not the best, but still emotional and impactful as a piece of Spoon history and the true intro to the group’s vulnerable side (Laffitte Don’t Fail Me Now/The Agony of Laffitte).

5) “They Want My Soul” (2014):
Similar to Girls Can Tell as a newer version starter album, immensely clever and inventive (Knock Knock Knock), new sound (Inside Out, New York Kiss), but still undoubtably classic rockin’ Spoon on many tracks (Rent I Pay, Rainy Taxi, They Want My Soul).

4) “Kill The Moonlight” (2002):
The tricky one, favorite of the critics, weird (Paper Tiger), emotional (Don’t Let It Get You Down), punchy (Jonathan Fisk), amazing but a teensy bit overrated, great opening (Small Stakes, The Way We Get By, Something To Look Forward To), little weaker mid-near end, and nice ending (Back To The Life, You Gotta Feel It, Vittorio E).

3) “Girls Can Tell” (2001):
The definitive Spoon “starter album”, a superb work of art, full of emotion (Everything Hits At Once, Me & the Bean, Lines In The Suit, Anything You Want) and charm (The Fitted Shirt), countless killer tracks, solid throughout for the most part, strong and sexy finale (Chicago At Night). Spoon at their most vulnerable and does it work? (yes, it does)

2) “Gimme Fiction” (2005):
Either loved or hated (loved), excellent opening (Beast and Dragon, Adored; The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine), jangly, punchy, classic rock ‘n’ roll, less heartfelt, Spoon showing off their style in their prime, quirky and stylish songwriting at its best, possesses most hits out of any Spoon record (I Turn My Camera On, Sister Jack, My Mathematical Mind, I Summon You, etc.), and the rumors of the album’s third act “dragging” are false, as proven (The Infinite Pet, Merchants of Soul). A would-be top album for most bands.

1) “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga” (2007):
Cleverly innocent and simplistic, the “making of”/talkback scattered record, while not having the most hits, it grasps the emotion (Don’t Make Me A Target, The Ghost of You Lingers) of Girls Can Tell, and the style (Finer Feelings, Rhthm & Soul) of Gimme Fiction, contains two absolute gems (The Underdog, Don’t You Evah) that are arguably some of the best Spoon tracks around, album concludes beautifully with a fitting finale (Black Like Me). The album is adventurous without trying as hard as Kill The Moonlight. Everything about Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is creative genius.
