Music for Your Monday

Some more songs I have been absolutely obsessed with lately:

1. Fair to Midland – “Rikki Tikki Tavi

Probably one of the most random songs you will ever hear, if you listen to it closely, you’ll find that it has a good message of bravery and being true to yourself.

2. Drowning Pool – “Rebel Yell

I know, it’s a cover. I like the original version, too, but this one seems more powerful to me. If you see me headbanging for no apparent reason during the day, chances are it’s because I have this stuck in my head.

3. Wheatus – “Teenage Dirtbag

This is another song that I wish I had known when I was in high school. Pretty much sums up the whole experience of feeling like you don’t fit in, then finding out that others might feel the same as you.

4. Hole – “Doll Parts

Courtney Love is gross, but I rediscovered this song and I still think it’s amazing.

5. The Dollyrots – “Satellite

The Dollyrots are one of my favorite bands, and they apparently released a new album in 2012 that I knew nothing about until this song popped up on my Pandora. Like most of their other songs, this one is upbeat and has attitude. Awesome!

6. Nadia Carolina Castillo – “Lilium

This is the theme song of Elfen Lied, sung in the loveliest way possible by Ms. Castillo, whose voice is magnificent. Well worth a listen, especially if you like classical music.

So what have you been listening to lately?

  1. Live Through This is probably my favorite album of the 1990s. The last song is just okay, but the rest of it is pretty much solidly great. (One of the chapters in my second novel is called “Live Through This,” and I think it fits.)

    Yesterday I listened to Oar (a very weird album made my Skip Spence, the Jefferson Airplane’s first drummer, when he was becoming schizophrenic) and a selection of songs from Les Miz. The two didn’t really go together that well.


    1. That probably means I should listen to all of Live Through This. I think I’ve only heard maybe half the songs on it. And Oar. That sounds interesting.
