An outburst of the soul....

I've seen this little meme on a few blogs and a few shorter versions floating around Tumblr, too. You take your iTunes or MP3's and put it on shuffle and post the first 20 songs that come up. Supposedly, you shouldn't be skipping any songs you may be "embarrassed" to listen to. Blah blah blah. So, I thought it might be amusing and decided to go for it. Why not, right?

1) Heroes by The Wallflowers

2) Lost In Space by Avantasia

3) Everything You Want by Vertical Horizon

4) Fuel by Metallica

5) Sober by Pink

6) Black Balloon by Goo Goo Dolls

7) Raining On Sunday by Keith Urban

8) Broken by Sonata Arctica

9) My Last Serenade by Killswitch Engage

10) Savior by Rise Against

11) Blackwater Park by Opeth

12) Without Me by Eminem

13) Two Weeks by All That Remains

14) Rock You Like A Hurricane by The Scorpions

15) The Illusionist by Scar Symmetry

16) Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen

17) She Is by The Fray

18) Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith

19) Wrath by Lamb Of God

20) Dig by Incubus

And because I can, here are 5 more...

21) What Was I Thinkin' by Dierks Bentley

22) Chasing The Dragon by Epica

23) Dream Lover by Bobby Darin

24) It Is What It Is by Lifehouse

25) Pursuit Of Vikings by Amon Amarth

That was fairly amusing. I honestly don't understand why people would ever be embarrassed or ashamed to admit they like a particular song, band, singer, etc. Who gives a fuck if people you like don't like it? I guess in part because I don't give a shit what people think about me, I don't care if people poke fun of my music. I figure I have to be happy with what I listen to, no one else does. So, I like what I like. :)

Now, here are a few quotes about music that I love. Enjoy. ;)

"Music is what feelings sound like."

"Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music." -Angela Monet

"Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul."

"When words leave off, music begins." -Heinrich Heine

"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything." -Plato

Happy Wednesday!

Comments, anyone?
