Part of the reason I’m so late posting this is because there were seriously so many songs on repeat this month (April was like a music explosion month for me because edgyauthor (Heather) sent me a boatload of goodies) and I typically try to keep this list to 10 tracks. This time I’m going to keep it to 10 artists instead and post one most played track and the others that were played nearly as much as links in case you’re interested. Another reason I’m so late though, is that my work situation is robbing my energy source and by the time I get home, I’m not up for much except eating dinner and going to bed. Sorry. 🙁
For as much as I LOVE this band, it’s really hard to believe I’m just learning about them now because of Heather, but I’m ecstatic that I have now because they’ve quickly become one of my favorite bands! This month the most played track was “I Hate You” and it will most definitely be used in the next book series I write!
Other tracks played ad nauseam were: “You’re Going Down” – “Cancer” – “So What I lied” and “War” – two of which will be featured on my current WIP! 😉
This is a band that I can’t believe I just realized existed because the lead singer is married to the lead singer of another band (Mindless Self Indulgence) that I’ve loved for years! Regardless, finding them just now left me with lots of music to enjoy and as a result there were lots of tracks on repeat this month. Most played was “Best of Me.”
Other songs that I just couldn’t get enough of include: ”Everybody Rules” – ”Hot Tonight” and ”Body 21” the last of which will likely be featured on my current WIP!
Again, this is another band Heather turned me onto and after receiving both of their albums for my birthday I am happy to include them in my list of favorite bands! The most played song this month was “Any Moment Now.”
Other songs that lived on repeat though were: “Paralyzer” (which I already knew, but had no idea was a Finger Eleven song) and ”Living in a Dream”.
Joshua James & the Forest Rangers
This song opened the premeire to Season 3 of Sons of Anarchy (which you should know based on previous posts, I LOVE). This song is a cover of a song by Herman’s Hermits, but I just LOVE Joshua James & the Forest Rangers version so very much!
Black Light Burns
I’ve already posted a few Black Light Burns songs before because Heather’s been teasing me with their music for a couple of months now, but after receiving their album this month it’s safe to say that I LOVE them! The whole album could easily be listened to non-stop, but the most played song for me this month was “Cruel Melody.”
Kerli is just “fun” in my opinion. Poppy, with a little rock like edge and I like that! *This is another artist Heather turned me onto* The most played tracked this month was “Walking on Air.”
Another song that got mad plays was ”Strange Boy” which I’m pretty sure will make my current WIP’s playlist 😉
Puddle of Mudd
I won’t say Heather turned me onto this band because I’d definitely heard of them before, but she definitely made me pay attention to a band I’d foolishly ignored for far too many years. There are so many great songs by them (as you’ve seen me post for a few months now), but this month the most played track was “Control” which I’m pretty sure will be featured on my next book series as well as one of the other most played tracks. This band rocks, period!
Other tracks that were played LOTS: ”Basement” and ”Bottom”
I think if you’ve followed my blog long enough you should already know by now that Arctic Monkeys are by far my favorite band and with the release of their new album coming soon they’ve been releasing singles to tease people like me. This month’s teaser was “Don’t Sit Down Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair” and just like the first single from this upcoming CD, I loved it!
Three Days Grace
This is totally another band like Puddle of Mudd where I’d definitely heard of them and knew a song or two, but had not idea how much I’d love them as a whole until Heather schooled me. While I honestly love MANY of their songs, this month’s most played song was “Burn.”
The credit for knowing this band completely goes to Heather, but finding these latest “loves” go to my Mom surprisingly. While heading to WW, we were listening to the Christen Rock XM station and a The Afters track came on that I’d never heard before, even though I have quite a bit of their music already. Turns out it was from a newer album that I didn’t have so of course I bought it that night and as a result “Say it Now” was played SO MUCH!
And ”We won’t Give Up” was played almost just as much! I think both tracks are soundtrack worthy for my current WIP!
I hope you enjoyed April’s “On Repeat” – I know I certainly did! Any guesses what might pop up in next month’s “On Repeat”? 😉 Here’s a hint of a possibility: The Beastie Boys are BACK! (Check it – EVERY person in this video is a celebrity, can you spot them all?)
Peace – Sarah
EDIT: OMG, how could I forget… this track doesn’t seem like it had THAT many plays according to my iTunes, but mainly because it’s 38+ minutes long so to replay constantly would consume the day quickly and in all honesty, I hit “replay” after the first 16 minutes several times (which iTunes doesn’t record)… Anyway, this track is absolutely going to be featured on my next big book series and has fulfilled so many scenes it’s sick. There’s no video, but it was done by an old high school friend of mine, Matty Scoll, and you need to hear his skills!
Viper Room Set
You can hear his latest track “Gasp” HERE!
