Strangely Addictive No.4- Mayday ! Mayday! May Special Version.

Today’s the first day of May! 25 days since I left Blogger and headed towards the greater good.

Since I have pretty much nothing significant to talk about, I decided to do a super Strangely Addictive post.

Yes, tackling several addicting things ( at least in my opinion) at one go.

Number 1: Small-time bands

Everyone’s heard of bands like Green Day, OneRepublic and even , if you want to stretch the boundaries on what constitutes a ‘band’, the HTT.  However, just as how diamonds are extremely rare to find,  so are good musicians. It started out as an attempt to clear my music library of bland band tracks and abandoned Anime soundtracks, which was when I stumbled upon several small bands- those that hardly (or even never) get broadcasted on the radio.

One example being Quietdrive. I’m currently addicted to their album, Deliverance, especially on their rocking tracks like the title song, Deliverance and others like Take Me Now. This band cured my abhorrence for American music. I used to despise the radio thanks to the likes of songs about fornication and sex and whatnot being more and more popular. Every 3 songs , one is about sex. Furthermore – the bad singers flood the radio – Justin Bieber? Really? Not that I’m jumping on the Anti-Bieber bandwagon just because of peer pressure, it’s because seriously, he sounds like an average girl, yet everyone seems to love him. Lady Gaga – stomping all over Queen’s legacy by defiling their song, Radio Gaga. I really loved that song.

Number 2: Humorous Songs

What are humorous songs? Well, if you don’t know, search a dictionary. In essence, a humorous song is a song with jocular lyrics. It usually makes no sense whatsoever, yet some make it big time on the radio:

I’m Awesome is by Spose, who recently made it onto Singapore radio airtimes, especially on 987fm.

There are several others as well, for instance The Lonely Island:

I guess humorous songs have added appeal to me because:

  1. They usually have a catchy rhythm
  2. They don’t keep singing on and on about the singer’s imaginary sexual prowess.
  3. They don’t get whored upon by the media.
  4. They are lighthearted- cheers me up.

Do you know any humorous songs? Feel free to tell me via comments – any language will do, as long as it’s funny.

Number 3: Hatsune Miku

When Miku Append was released, I was highly sceptical about it. Really? A upgrade for Miku instead of a new Vocaloid? I predicted it to be really horrid, and promised to slap myself if it wasn’t.

I slapped myself.

Surprisingly, Miku Append is really nice to listen to. With the likes of squeaky music like Go!Go!Maniac! stirring up storms on the internet over ‘squeaky’ Miku songs, Miku Append comes to save the day.

Give some of her songs a shot:

Number 4: This.

Number 5: Anime blogging.

Of course. I apologise for the lack of much anime posts lately, examinations are here and I have less time for anime nowadays. Of course, I’ll try to do more posts when I can and I can post daily during June. So bear with me for a second…

Well, that sums up Strangely Addictive No.4. Stay tuned for the next post ^^
