Top 5 songs that “hit” me

by in Uncategorized

Well, it was hard to keep this list to just five, but here are a few songs that “hit” me (i.e., actually make you think, reminisce, identify with the lyrics, whatever) in no particular order:

Ben Folds – Landed
If you wrote me off
I’d understand it
Cause I’ve been on
Some other planet
So come pick me up
I’ve landed

Counting Crows – Long December
And it’s been a long December and there’s reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can’t remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
And it’s one more day up in the canyon
And it’s one more night in Hollywood
It’s been so long since I’ve seen the ocean…I guess I should

Her Space Holiday – Sleepy California
It’s just Sleepy California
But I just hope they know
It’s just Sleepy California
How much I really care
It’s just Sleepy California
How I want the best for them
It’s just Sleepy California
Even though I’m hardly there

Athlete – Tourist
This European air
it always warms my face
I wish I could buy some
I will bring you stories
And bleary-eyed photos
like a regular tourist

Something Corporate – Down
Wish upon a star but
Do you know what stars are?
Balls of fire, burning up the black space
Falling from the landscape
Exploding in the face of God
Let’s get crazy,
Talk about our big plans
Places that you’re going
Places that I haven’t been
Build my walls up
Concrete castle
Keep this kingdom free of hassle, yeah

Honorable mentions that you should download (I guess I couldn’t really keep the list to five after all):
Young Dubliners – Foggy Dew
Dispatch – The General
Подмосковные вечера (aka “Moscow Nights”)
The Postal Service – The District Sleeps Alone Tonight
The Used – The Taste of Ink
Chronic Future – Time and Time Again
Something Corporate – Cavanaugh Park
Beach Boys – Sloop John B
Third Eye Blind – Motorcycle Drive By
