Just a few songs that i have been listening to on repeat for the past couple of days.

A rocket to the Moon - Baby, we're invincible
If I could take your heart
And keep it close to me
I swear it will not break
I swear it will not bleed

Hotspur - heads/tails -- please please please download this song. this is one of the songs that i played constantly until my sister started shouting at me to play something else.
So let's let fate decide
for you and me tonight
if there's half a chance we'll make it
Then it's not too late to try

No Use for a Name - For Fiona
And I'm as scared as anybody who has done this
I would have given up but not defeat
You took my love, turned it a around, you put
my feet back on the ground, I owe you, eternally

The Latency - Tonight, I love you
Just breathe in, You'll be fine
I'm right here by your side
(I love you)

We the Kings - August is Over
The summer nights are dead
The fall is coming
We were careless hearts
Who got caught up in this

You were shy
To the night you drove me wild
And you crashed into me
And I won't lie
I wish it lasted a lifetime

Fate brought them together. Time tears them apart

If you haven't read the book or watched the movie yet, these songs should be able to convince you to do so. The first four songs are "supposed" to be on the soundtrack. No official word yet.

1. Lifehouse - Broken This is the song that was playing in the background of the trailer. You can view it over here
The broken locks were a warning
You got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded
I'm an open book instead
And I still see your reflection
Inside of my eyes
That are looking for purpose
They're still looking for life

2. Love will Tear us Apart - Broken Social Scene
And we're changing our ways, taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again

3. Clocks - Coldplay
Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
Gonna come back and take you home
I could not stop what you now know

4. Gone To Earth - American Analog Set
If galaxies are places you've never been too far
Suns will fade both blind and lead the way home where you are

Random Tracks:
Geek Love - Nerina Pallot
Cause I don't presume to know shit about you,
When you won't really tell me until I beg you to,
But I know that perplexity's a wonderful thing,
It's a sudden found joy, the strangeness it brings...

Phillip Larue - Found I love love love this song. i am begging you to download this.
Baby you stole my heart, I never want it back
i feel so strange because of you. i have everything to lose, i wouldn't have it any other way

[005] Gather all your petals
Let the flowers of summer find their way to you
as you gather all your petals in hopes that they will bring her back to you

1. Badly Drawn Boy - The Shining
Faith pours from your walls, drowning your calls
I've tried to hear, you're not near
Remembering when I saw your face
Shining my way, pure timing
Now I've fallen in deep, slow silent sleep
it's killing me, I'm dying

2. Stars - Elevator Love Letter
I'm so hot for the rich girl
Her heels so high, and my hopes so low
'Cause I don't know how to love
I'll take her home after midnight
And if she likes, I'll tell her lies
How we'll be in love by the morning
I don't think she knows
That I'm saying good bye

3. A Fine Frenzy - Whisper
The sound tires on my lips
To fade away into forgetting

I'm down to a whisper
In a daydream on a hill
Shut down to a whisper
Can you hear me?

4. Birds - Kate Nash
"come on boy tell me what your thinking,
Now dont be shy."
He said alright, "I'll try.
All the stars up in the sky and the leaves in the trees,
All the broken bits that make you jump up and grassy bits in between.
All the matter in the world is how much I like you."

5. Matt Nathanson - Bent
if i bent like you said was best
would that change a thing?
if i spent myself 'til nothings left
would you still leave me here?

6. Josh Kelley - To make you feel my love
One night when the shadows and the stars appear
And there's no one there to dry your tears
I could hold u for a million years
To make you feel my love

7. Joshua Radin - Closer (all of these songs are my favorites but if i had to choose between the pack, it will be this one.
the clouds in your eyes
down your face they pour
won't you be the new one burn to shine
i take the blue ones every time
walk me down your broken line
all you have to do is cry

8. Joe Purdy - I Love the Rain the Most when it stops
Well, the dark waves, they start singing together
I can't believe this change in the weather
I start to hum a child's rhyme
And all these boats, they start rocking in time
And I love the rain the most when it stops

9. Oliver James - Long Time Coming
It's been a long time coming
Down this road
And now I know
What I've been waitin' for
And like a lonely highway
I'm tryin' to get home

10. The Postal Service - Such Great Heights
it's thoughts like this that catch my troubled
head when you're away when I am missing you to death
when you are out there on the road for
several weeks of shows and when you scan
the radio, I hope this song will guide you home

Official Website | page

Nine Days is a rock / power pop band which was popular in the early 2000s. Formed on Oyster Bay, New York by John Hampson and Brian Desveaux, they released three independent albums in the 1990s before their mainstream debut album, The Madding Crowd, was released in 2000. The band scored two hits in the US from The Madding Crowd, as "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)", which reached #6 and "If I Am", which reached #68.

the answers we find are never what we had in mind, so we make them up as we go alongCollapse )

if you enjoyed this band, feel free to check out more songs along their alley with my Alternate Acoustics Playlist.

Theme 002: Discoverockult
Discoverockult is a collection of new rock bands especially Alternative/Modern Rock and often underrated artists.

Top Artists: The Classic Crime, Black Lab, SafetySuit, Boyce Avenue, Stroke 9, Green River Ordinance, Jet Black Stare

1. Green River Ordinance - On Your Own [thanks to Eu for sharing this with me] [must download] My is just filled with this song lately

Past is past you never really gave it a shot
To survive with your one last shot in the dark
And if your conscience weighs a little heavy tonight
Maybe you'll find that
Empty boxes on the stairs
Remind you that there's no one there

Is it everything you thought it would be

2. Boyce Avenue - Bleeding Love (cover)(Acoustic)
But nothing's greater
Than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I’m going crazy

3. SafetySuit - Annie
I didn't know if I could tell her
I didn't know if I could make her see
She didn't need to find her beauty
She didn't need to find a way to show me
They took her moments of feeling alive
And made them moments of dying inside

She needed someone to scream her name
To take her pain and it's why I screaming

4. July for Kings - Girlfriend (acoustic)
Room 421
an airport hotel
I know I should be sleeping
but it's too soon to tell
if I'll fly out tomorrow
if I'll see her tomorrow
I hope that I will.
no place like alone
and no sound like my own voice
fading into this quiet december night

but I'm doing alright
I'll make a phone call or two

5. WideAwake - Broken [i love love love this song]
If I let you down will you still want me around
If I'm broken will you still love me?

Theme 001: Lifeline
To start my mixes, i thought of the "classic" songs that i can't live without.

Song formats: .mp3

1. Here is Gone - Goo Goo Dolls
And I dont need the fallout
Of all the past that's in between us
And I'm not holding on
And all your lies weren't enough to keep me here

2. 3 A.M. - Matchbox 20
She says it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She's always worried about things like that
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault

3. Barely Breathing - Duncan Sheik
But the black holes that surrounded you are heavier by far
I believed in your confusion, you were so completely torn
It must've been that yesterday was the day that i was born
There's not much to examine, there's nothing left to hide
You really can't be serious, you hafta ask me why
I say goodbye...

4. I believe - Blessed union of souls
Walk blindly to the light and reach out for his hand
Don't ask any questions and don't try to understand
Open up your mind and then open up your heart
And you will see that you and me aren't very far apart

5. Closing Time - Semisonic
So gather up your jackets,
move it to the exits.
I hope you have found a friend
Closing time.
Every new beginning comes
from some other beginning's end

Bonus: If I am - Nine Days --> a definite must listen to any day.
So your standing on a ledge
It looks like you might fall
So far down
Or maybe you were thinking about jumping
Now you could have it all
If you learned a little patience
For though I cannot fly
I'm not content to crawl
So give me a little credit
Have in me a little faith
I want to be with you forever
If tommorow's not too late
