As part of my surgery recovery process, I've had to go for a walk everyday. I cap myself at 2.5 miles (an arbitrary limit I set) and I usually go during nap time and take the dog with me and listen to the same few songs because I want to punish my brain, I mean I really like these songs right now. Since the blog is all about letting people getting a glimpse of my inner crazy, let's go over my current favorites. They will forever be my "Broken Back Songs" (maybe that's why I just can't quit them, haha), but maybe you've never heard of them or long forgot about it and can add it to your playlist and be just like me.
I Will Survive - Cake. Obviously, this is a cover, but it's a pretty freaking awesome version and perfect for my ambles.
Have You Ever Seen the Rain - Creedance Clearwater Revival. I shouldn't have to explain why this song is amazing.
Walk Through the Fire - Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Once More With Feeling. This is my jam and I'll probably never get tired of it, or trying to convince people that they should watch this show. For some reason, I could only find a good version on YouTube with Spanish subtitles, but here's a cleaner version here.
Everlong (Acoustic Version) - Foo Fighters. I just found out this week that the acoustic version is on iTunes and I've listened it about 459 times since I got it. I used to have the mp3 of the acoustic version burned onto a CD (back when it first was played on the Howard Stern Show) and this cleaned up version is even better, and bonus...not stolen like the mp3 one in college! In my defense, everyone was doing it.
Timber (feat. Ke$ha) - Pitbull. I'm slightly embarrassed about this one, but it's so catchy. I can't help listening to it over and over again.
Scar Tissue - Red Hot Chili Peppers. This is the perfect song to listen to as you're going for walks to try to prevent the formation of scar tissue in your spine.
Bruises (feat. Ashley Monroe) - Train. I first heard this song on the radio and it took me a little while to figure out who sang it, and I admit that I was surprised that it was a Train song. I guess there is a first time for everything, I just hope the next step from this isn't actually liking a Nickleback song. Every time I listen to this song, I think about how the people in this song really need to figure out Facebook.
Renegade - Styx. The show Supernatural reminded me how much I fucking love this song and now that I have it on my playlist, I can't get enough of it. If you listen to the first 45 seconds of this and aren't rocking out, then you may be past the point of help.
There you go, a look into my interesting music choices. I know I'll enjoy revisiting this post in like a year and being like "Oh yeah, I remember all those walks. That suuuucked" and then laughing as I go get onto my horse with my bow on my back to go hunt shit in the woods. It's going to be just like these two things combined:
What songs are you obsessed with right now?
Do you still own any CDs? I don't just own some, I have a whole book filled with them. One day I'm going to take the time to upload them all to my computer, but so far I haven't felt a Britney Spears void in my life so the CDs are just sitting on a shelf in my closet.
