Kay's Infinite Playlist

So...I listen to music most of my day, and began writing down songs that I liked, no matter where they came from. So for that reason I present to you my very own Infinite Playlist (in no particular order)!!

1. Future Love by Varsity Fanclub.
I love this song. There is something slightly reminiscent of the old boy-bands (yes, I loved them dearly) but at the same time...better. I'm into lyrics and the lyrics of this song are kind of "awwww" and sweet.

2. Ever Ever After by Carrie Underwood
I'm a hopeless romantic and this song says it perfectly. "Lets just admit we all want to make it to Ever Ever After." Where is my ticket?

3. Adore Her by Mandy Moore
I have always loved Mandy Moore, whether she was singing or acting. For a while there she kind of fell of the face of the earth music wise. But when she came out with Wild it was brilliant. This song is so perfectly suited for any situation. It describes most females I know, not to mention the amazingly rich quality of Mandy's voice.

4. If Your Not The One by Daniel Beddingfield
Again with the love-sick hopeless romantic that I am, this song is perfect (or not?) for that kind of thing. It has the soul melt-y lyrics you look for in a love song, not to mention Daniel has an amazing voice. This song kind of makes me swoon.

5. Energy by Keri Hilson
I'm not sure why I like this song. Its actually quite depressing. I guess I like the metaphors used in the chorus. "I'm having nightmares from sleeping with the enemy". I suppose I wouldn't actually call that a metaphor, but I do like the image it depicts. I'm not familiar with much (anything really) of Keri Hilson's music, but if her other songs are anything like this one, she has my vote (and money).

6. Love Me Dead by Ludo
Probably the most unconventional love song I have ever heard, Love Me Dead is amazing. Ludo has a unique voice and really does well to show his range in this song. But the lyrics...they are a cross between a hate break up song and a proposal. His play on words throughout the whole song are really quite brilliant actually.

7. Love Song by Taylor Swift
I really love Taylor. She a) writes her own music b) is adorable and c) incredibly talented. Her newest single bears witness to that. Each chorus is different, showing a different aspect of a slightly dysfunctional relationship until the very end, where it would perfectly fit Jim and Pam. This is another one of those songs that actually make me swoon.

8. Gotta Find You by Joe Jonas
Yes, I did it. I added a Jonas Brother song to my list. But in all truth, its actually not bad song. Considering the fact that its a Disney song and is quite cookie-cutter pop. For the slightly romantic and slightly immature side of all of us, this song is sweet. That's a good word to describe it, sweet.

9. La la Land by Demi Lovato
I figure just clump Disney together. She's not bad. A little shouty in some parts, but all things considered, she has a decent voice. This song is cute. A testament to what every girl who came out of Disney said. They won't change, no matter what. A good beat, some fun play on words, and not a bad song.

10. Better In Time by Leona Lewis
Again, a slightly depressing song. She has an amazing voice, and the lyrics really do say something. I'm gonna smile now. Thanks.

11. Tied Together With A Smile by Taylor Swift
This song isn't slightly depressing, its really depressing. And some days I feel like it fits me a little to well. Again, love her voice, she's really talented, a good song writer and this song just touches somewhere. A level that I think most songs avoid. A place of rawness, reality. Its a beautiful song.

12. Cold As You by Taylor Swift
Last Taylor song I promise! But there is no denying the haunting quality of this song. You can see it in your head, feel it in your heart. Definitely up there on my list.

And that concludes my not-so-infinite playlist. I hope I have opened your eyes to some cool new music. Or maybe reminded you why you love music in the first place.
