Oh, what a week it has been! Work has been keeping me on my toes, and I started the week off in a pretty low mood, but it has gradually improved. Plus, checking out everyone's Halloween posts and costumes yesterday made me smile. I hope you all enjoyed the holiday. I didn't do much. And by that, I mean I didn't really do anything. Unless sitting on my couch and eating Jimmy John's while watching Paranormal Activity 2 counts as Halloween celebration. Maybe? I didn't even get trick or treaters here in my part of town. Which is probably a good thing, because I had nothing for them. Except a couple of blocks of Ramen noodles. I don't think that would have went over well.
I was planning to do my full Switchfoot recap today, but after looking at my planner I really just want to save it for next week. However, speaking of Switchfoot, I felt like I should use this post to share a few songs that I have been loving lately. I get ADDICTED to music, and it literally gets me through work most days. I've noticed though, that I don't talk about it much here on the blog. Let's change that today.
I am very open-minded when it comes to music. I want a variety. I grew up on Country music. "Don't Rock the Jukebox" was one of the first songs I learned to sing. Being a 90's kid, I obviously love pop...N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, all of those folks. I listen to a lot of contemporary Christian. I am a big rock fan...mainly alternative, but I also enjoy heavier stuff as well. I can't get enough of Broadway soundtracks and show tunes. I'm just not a picky person.
But, my absolute favorite type of music would definitely fall into the category of soft/alternative pop/rock. Bands like Coldplay, OneRepublic, Anberlin, Switchfoot, The Fray, Maroon 5...I cannot get enough! I find that these types of bands are very subtly powerful in their style, and the lyrics are smart and have the ability to be dissected and contemplated. More than any other type of music, this style makes me think, feel, and relate the songs to the important aspects of life.
Here are three songs that I have been loving lately. Let me know if you enjoy them too!
Say Something by A Great Big World
Who We Are by Switchfoot
Counting Stars by OneRepublic
What songs are you loving right now? Do we have any similar music tastes?
I hope you all have an amazing, fantastic, superb, perfect weekend! :)
