As 2013 is coming to an end, undoubtedly we are all going to do a lot of "looking back" and "reflecting" on the past year and how we've "grown" etcetera etcetera. Myself included, which is why I loved the idea that the ever-brilliant Helene came up with, and that is picking all or our favorite songs from 2013!
Pearl Jam has always been my jam (haha get it?) and this song is absolutely no exception. The great thing about it is that it isn't one of those songs that gets overplayed on the radio so I never got to the point where I was tired of it. Listening to it as I type and it is definitely going to be one of those songs I love forever. Favorite lyric: "I could take your hand, and feel your breath. For feel that someday this will be over, I pull you close, so much to lose"
These two, they can do no wrong. Separately they are great, together they're brilliant. I've always been a big fan of Eminem and when he and Rihanna came out with Love the way You Lie, I couldn't stop listening and this song didn't disappoint either. Favorite lyric: "Fame may be a balloon 'cause my ego inflated."
My original plan was to not have duplicate artists, but this song. The first time I heard it, I was like what is this magic coming out of my speakers. And it's been history ever since. Favorite lyric: "All along it was a fever, a cold sweat hot-headed believer."
The first tie I heard this song, I was listening to my "Workout" Pandora station on a run through our neighborhood. I loved that it was kind of funky and essentially made fun of people buying ridiculously expensive name brand clothes. Favorite lyric: "Dressed in all pink except my gator shoes, those are green."
I don't remember the first time I heard this song, but I've always been a fan of house music (isn't that the "technical" term, Helene?) but I was never so into it that I knew all the artists or anything like that. But I knew I would like this song, and I'm sad it's becoming one of those overplayed ones. Oh well, you can't win them all. Favorite lyric: "Life's a game made for everyone and love is the prize."
