The Friday Five

Thought I’d post the five songs that I’ve been listening to the most this week. The songs are downloadable; just click on the title.

01. Kelsey – Metro Station

Now it's gonna get harder
Find More lyrics at
and it's gonna burn brighter
and it's gonna feel tougher each and every day
so let me say, that i love you
you're all I've ever wanted
all I've ever dreamed of to come

This was one of the songs that catches the spirit of my Summer and thus, I like to listen to it at Uni whenever I’m feeling mildly nostalgic. Metro Station, on the whole, are a bit of a bubblegum band, manufactured by the same lot that gave us the abomination that is Miley Cyrus, but there’s something in this song that really connects for me. It’s a sweet, heartfelt love song.

02. I Must Be Emo – Jeffree Star

When I get depressed I cut my wrists in every direction
Hearing songs about getting dumped give me an erection
I write in a live journal and wear thick rimmed glasses
I tell my friends I bleed black and cry during classes
I’m just a bad, cheap, imitation of goth
You could read me Catcher In The Rye and watch me jack-off

A hilarious parody of those eyeliner wearing, Marilyn Manson worshipping teens that are called emos. The OTT melodramatic American accent and allusions to skinny to jeans are nothing short of genius.

03. Fascination – Alphabeat

We love this exaltation
We want the new temptations
It's like a revelation
We live on fascination

A wonderfully upbeat and cheery song, which could or could not be about teenagers discovering love for the first time.

04. The Scientist – Aimee Mann

Nobody said it was easy
Oh its such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said that it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

Mann’s cover of Coldplay’s song. Her voice is so strong and really suits this song.

05. Hallelujah – The Dresden Dolls

you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Not quite up there with Rufus Wainwright’s cover; but still a solid cover.

It is indeed, thanks Stace!

OMG I love the Emo song, it's hilarious. Was really popular at my school last year, so much so we could randomly burst into song and everyone knew what we were on about.

Might have to check out Metro Station. Love their song Shake It.

Also - Hallelujah is one of my favourite songs ever. So sad, but so sweet. Always reminds me of Shrek though.
