The letter "H" was the end of the queued blogs. I need to hurry up and get my bum in gear if I hope to finish this challenge. So, here's I. Short and sweet. And yes, I've mentioned all 3 of these artists already. I hope you weren't expecting me to come up with new artists for each letter! :)
1. "Invincible" by Muse
Love this song (esp right around the 4:35 mark with the AMAZING guitar solo)
Love the lyrics. Check them out here. Read them and be inspired.
2. "If God Will Send His Angels" by U2
This song is the first track on the City of Angels soundtrack. This was the first movie I went to by myself, many moons ago when I was still in college. I really wanted to see it and my roommates weren't interested, so I packed a little lunch and took myself to the movies. This song just really moves me. I'd use a stronger verb, but I'm not sure which one to use.
3. Into the Wild soundtrack, Eddie Vedder
I'm a big fan of soundtracks because they usually provide a wide variety of songs from a selection of artists and bands. This usually introduces me to new singers and music, thus expanding my musical horizons. But then I come across a soundtrack like Into the Wild, and I love it for the exact opposite reasons. See, I knew of Pearl Jam. I knew who Eddie Vedder was, but I wasn't really a big fan of the music. But this album sounded different. It's calming, it's good, and it's also on my writing playlist. No one song really stands out as "the best," rather, they all have the same feel. I haven't seen the movie and really, I don't know if I want to. I like not knowing the context to some of these songs.
Thanks for all the suggestions of songs and/or artists you enjoy for each of these letters. I hope to spend some time in May making a list and checking out your suggestions. Keep them coming!
