It’s literally impossible for me to choose just one song as my favourite. My music tastes are oddly vast, ranging from rock to country to pop to soundtrack to jazz to musicals to punk! And then some.
So… I’m cheating 😛 On Day 01, no less.
Green Day — 21 Guns
Just choosing between my favourite Green Day song was hard enough, but I finally settled for this one. It shows off all of my favourite elements of Green Day… Billie Joe’s amazing voice, his beautiful lyrics, and the music… just… wow. Plus, great video. I am, however, a big fan of Green Day’s older punk-ish material as well, and my second favourite Green Day song would probably be She.
Lady Antebellum — Need You Now
Okay, so that’s not the real music video. That, in fact, is a fanvid that a wonderful fanfic mate of mine, Angelustatt, made for me to accompany my very first Torchwood fic. But this relates to one of the reasons why this is one of my favourite songs – it painted such an inspiring picture in my mind that I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. Simple, but effective.
Owl City – Vanilla Twilight
Gosh, I can be such a romantic sap sometimes. The lyrics to this song… squee! Electronic doesn’t usually appeal to me, but this is just wonderful. Another great favourite is If My Heart Was A House. It’s just makes me feel happy, every time I listen.
I should stop now, otherwise next I know, I’ll have 100+ YouTube videos linked here. I think this serves as a pretty good first post regarding music, and I’m certain that the topic will arise again soon!
So what about all of you? What are your absolute favourite songs? And, more interestingly, why?
