Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is an all about audio freebie, so I picked Top Five Favourite Artists and Top Ten Favourite Albums.
As much as I love reading I think I love music even more. I’d rather leave home without my Kindle than leave without my iPod fully charged and full of music to listen to on my journey to and from work. I have thousands of songs on my iPod but I listen to the same bands, the same albums, and the same tracks over and over again. So for this week’s top ten I decided to pick my favourite artists, my favourite albums and, when the comes down to it, the songs I will listen to over and over on my iPod.
Fall Out Boy
I have loved Fall Out Boy ever since I heard Sugar We’re Goin Down when it was first released. Their two newest albums are my favourites though and picking only two favourite tracks was so hard because there’s so many I love and could have picked.
Save Rock and Roll
Favourite Song: Just One Yesterday
“If heaven’s grief brings hell’s rain
Then I’d trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday.”
American Beauty/American Psycho
Favourite Song: The Kids Aren’t All Right
“And in the end
I’d do it all again
I think you’re my best friend
Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright.”
When Radioactive was released I downloaded their whole album and kept listening to it over and over again. As much as I loved Night Visions Smoke + Mirrors is actually my favourite of the two albums, and now I can’t wait to see what they come out with next.
Favourite Song: Nothing Left to Say
“Who knows how long I’ve been awake now?
The shadows on my wall don’t sleep
They keep calling me, beckoning.”
Smoke + Mirrors
Favourite Song: Warriors
“Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.”
I only discovered Bastille when my friend played one of their albums on a road trip where we were going god knows where, the song was Daniel in the Den and after she told me the name of the artist I just had to get my hands on their album.
Favourite Song: Daniel in the Den
“And you thought the lions were bad
Well they tried to kill my brothers
And for every king that died
Oh they would crown another.”
All This Bad Blood
Favourite Song: Laughter Lines
“I’ll see you in the future when we’re older
And we are full of stories to be told.
Cross my heart and hope to die,
I’ll see you with your laughter lines.”
I really love Taylor Swift; there’s not a song off any of her albums I haven’t enjoyed and her newest album, 1989, is one I’ve listened to on repeat so many times now.
Favourite Song: Starlight
“The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight.”
Favourite Song: I Know Places
“Cause they got the cages, they got the boxes
They are the hunters, we are the foxes
And we run.”
Florence + the Machine
While I still haven’t got around to downloading her newest album the songs I have heard from it are brilliant; and if How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is anything like Lungs or Ceremonials I know it’s going to be one I listen to on repeat for a few days at least.
Favourite Song: Drumming Song
“There’s a drumming noise inside my head
That starts when you’re around.”
Favourite Song: All This and Heaven Too
“And the heart is hard to translate
It has a language of its own.”
