Colbie Caillat, Forever the Sickest Kids, and Rascal Flatts

I like to write, a lot. But when I write, I have to have music. I can't write in absolute silence. (I can hardly stand silence, actually.) For some reason, there are a few bands that I especially like to listen to when I write. Colbie Caillat, Forever the Sickest Kids, and Rascal Flatts. I don't know what it is about these bands, but it seems I can write forever when I'm listening to them. It's strange how certain songs can trigger certain things.
Like when ever I hear the song 'My Generation' by Starfield I always think of my sister, Kelly. I remember sitting in the backseat of our van with her, driving around Conrad, and listening to that song and 'I Want my Mullet Back' by Billy Ray Cyrus. Whenever I hear 'Eye of the Tiger' I always think of one of my friends. We sang that song one year for a school play, and she always got really in to the song. It was hilarious. When I hear Josh Turner, I always think of my dad, no matter what song it is, because he always sings Josh Turner. So many songs bring back so many memories. Maybe that's one of the reasons I love music so much.

Currently listening to: Taylor Swift

Tom Felton!!!!!

I forgot how much I love Purevolume. It's like, one of the best sites to find new bands. It seems like every time I go on to the site, I find some new awesome music. If you've never been, you should. Right now. And to make it easier for you, you can just copy and paste this link: (Nice, aren't I?) Anyway, it was my guitar teacher that first showed me this site, and I'll forever be grateful to him for that. I hadn't been on in a while, so I decided to go on tonight. They have so much cool music on here! Seriously.
Oh! You know Tom Felton? (He plays Draco Malfoy on the Harry Potter movies.) I found out tonight that he can sing..and play guitar! I saw some of his videos up on Youtube, and I can't believe I've never heard him before. It was quite a pleasant surprise.'s a video of him singing/playing!!! It's a preview of four different listen for the transitions between songs, 'kay? OH, and tell me what you think!

(I had to repost this, and make a few changes, because my computer was acting weird with the link and the video..which is why it's here.)

Let Go

Have you ever noticed that a lot of good bands have really..odd..names? Like..there's a band called Frou Frou. Or Shiny Toy Guns..Forever the Sickest Kids..Scary Kids Scaring Kids (I've never listened to them..just seen a CD.....) But I've come to realize that just because the name of the band is kinda strange, doesn't mean that they're no good. A lot of the time they've got awesome music. Like the song Let Go by Frou Frou. It's awesome. And Boys Like Girls did a really awesome cover of that song too. (Have you noticed I like the word awesome?)
It really stinks because right now, I have to go through and delete a whole bunch of stuff off of my Zune to make more room for new things. -sigh- At least there are a few things I can get rid of that won't bother me too much....anywho...I'm gonna go search for some more music. (Because what else would I be doing on a Friday night, right? haha.)

Currently listening to: Frou Frou
