Day 228: It’s time for some more super rad AQUABATS!

28 Jan

Hello there!

As I am writing this post, I’m listening to the AQUABATS! HOORAY!

It’s always an epic day when the Aquabats are on!

So for the post today, I wanted to feature another one of their songs! But the question is, which one?!

I am going to feature not 1

not 2,

but 3 songs… all from their album Charge!! (2005)! OHHH YEAAAH

(this blogpost is just stalling. I guess I’ll have a more in depth post later this week… maybe Sunday).

Song #1: Plastic Lips

The song is about a guy who falls in love with a doll. Yeah. That’s right. You heard me.

Weirdly enough, it’s like my favorite song off of the whole CD… so just give it a listen!

Song #2: Look At Me (I’m A Winner)

I mean, just by the title you know this song rocks. It’s one of my favorite get-me-out-of-a-bad-mood songs because of it’s uplifting theme!

Song #3: Waterslides

Waterslides is also one of my favorite songs because it’s actually got a really great message: Live life to the fullest and enjoy life! Plus, anything that is TECHNICALLY about Waterslides is bad-ass!

Enjoy those songs and more on the Aquabats album Charge!!

Day 92: Elevenses by Neil Halstead

20 Aug

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Early post for you today!!

If you didn’t watch the video I posted yesterday, I highly encourage it (check it out here) It’s cute and sweet and about superheros!

Today I have another really sweet song for you called “Elevenses” by Neil Halstead. Some of you may have heard it before, which is not unusual: the song is prominently featured in the most recent “Above The Influence” commercial (with the two teenagers who hang out together).

I see this commercial at my work all the time, and the song is so cute that I just had to find out what it was!

So I hope you enjoy “Elevenses” by Neil Halstead!

P.S. this video was made under 99 dollars! hooray for using resources!

Day 91: When U Love Somebody by the Fruit Bats

19 Aug

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Last year a sweet movie called Adam came out (starring Hugh Dancy and Rose Byrn), about a man with Aspergers syndrome who falls in love with a kids book writer (and vice versa). It is endearing and sad, but most of all it brings you hope.

I resisted tears as I sat in the theater, but I watch it on dvd and cry openly all the time. However, my favorite part of this movie is the song in the preview.

It’s called “When U Love Somebody” by the Fruit Bats, and it is absolutely adorable. The words are simple and the guitar plays the same riff, but it never fails to make me happy.

When I decided to feature this song on my blog tonight, I found this cute (and surprisingly well-made) video based off the song. I thought it was fantastic enough to share, and I hope you enjoy it!
