To be honest, I had no idea what to write about. I kept going round and round in my head listing off all of the subjects I would like to blog about, but nothing really stuck. I Googled, and read other peoples ideas on what to write, but it wasn’t until I read one idea that made me think-why not write about one of my favorite subjects? Music.
So you’re browsing Ebay or Amazon, trying to find new music to buy, and putting a list together in your head of all the cd’s you’d like to own. You should check out these 5 cd’s I’ve selected from off of my shelf:
1. Under the Afterglow by: Forever the Day
My favorite song(s) off the cd: Forever and a Day, and Underneath the Twilight
Why you should own it: Do you remember the Disney Channel movie Now You See It, from back in 2005? Or perhaps you saw him in the Discovery Kids show Flight 29 Down. That’s actually how I found out about Forever the Day back in 2010. I was looking at Johnny Pacar’s wikipedia page, when I found out he was in a rock band. I looked them up, listened to a few songs, and found that I loved their music. Don’t let the fact that the cd only has 5 songs intimidate you from buying it. Believe me, it is worth the money.
2. Rooney by: Rooney
My favorite song(s) off the cd: Stay Away, and If it Were Up To Me
Why you should own it: “Their music is reminiscent of British Invasion rock and 1980s pop, and has been compared to The Beatles, The Cars…”, “They have toured the nation with acts such as the Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson, Weezer, The All American Rejects, and The Academy Is…”
3. Stunt by: BNL
My favorite song(s) off the cd: One Week, It’s All Been Done, Never Is Enough, Who Needs Sleep?, and When You Dream
Why you should own it: Because this cd features fun songs with catchy tunes and interesting lyrics. I own several BNL cds, but this is definately my favorite by them so far.
4. Taking It Back to the Old School by: Sochi
My favorite song(s) off the cd: When I Hold You, Another Saturday Night, and Teenage Sonota
Why you should own it: If your a fan of the 1990’s tv show Sliders, like I am, then you will love Sochi. His sound can be compared to that of Remy “The Crying Man” Brown’s-his style is similar, and he even says “Oh, I’m gonna cry” in his song Teenage Sonota. And even if you’re not a Sliders fan, his cd is unique, and fun to listen to. One that many will find enjoyable to hear.
5. The Talon Mix -Smallville Soundtrack
My favorite song(s) off the cd: Save Me by: Remy Zero
Why you should own it: Because Smallville is an awesome tv show, but even non-Smallville fans will enjoy this cd. It features artists such as Sixpence None The Richer; Weezer; The Flaming Lips; Five For Fighting; and Lifehouse. It’s a unique track of various music compiled to make one awesome soundtrack.
