I was looking at summer camps this morning, Squiders, and one was touting that its 2018 schedule was now up, and in my head I was like, “Why so far in the future?”
I have now remembered what year it is. Oops.
Also, one of my monitors (I have a dual monitor set-up) smells like it’s burning something so I’ve had to turn it off.
Every now and then I like to share some songs with you that I’m currently digging, usually because they provide story inspiration of some sort. And it felt like it was time (and apparently so, since it’s been a year!) so here we are.
No Roots (Alice Merton)
I feel kind of hipster about this song (“I was listening to this before it was cool”) but on the other hand, now that it’s on the radio all the time I also get to listen to it all the time. Plus it’s fun to sing along to.
One Foot (Walk the Moon)
I love everything about this song. I hadn’t watched the video before this post and it’s ridiculous, but I have no regrets.
Radioactive (Within Temptation–cover of Imagine Dragons)
I love the Imagine Dragons version, but is there really anything that can’t be improved by a power metal cover? If there is I haven’t found it yet! Also I adore Within Temptation and I wish they would tour over here in the States sometime.
The lyrics are a little problematic in places on this one (and very dark in general) but I love how this sounds like early Nightwish.
Footsteps (Pop Evil)
I can’t remember if I’ve shared this song with you guys before (it’s older) but if I have, uh, well, here it is again!
Have any songs that are hitting your sweet spots right now, squiders? I’m pretty open musically, so feel free to give me a rec or two!
