Mmkay so here it is.

Lovefool by The Cardigans

This poppy, indie song by the Swedish band, The Cardigans is simply amazing. I first came across this song when I was looking for good love songs to put on a mix cd I was making for a girl, but that’s a whole other story. This song captured my attention immediately. If I remember correctly, I felt like I’d heard it before somewhere in passing, and it’s familiarity only added to the incredibly sweet and sexy charm of Nina Persson’s (the lead singer) voice.

I can’t stand to be silent when I’m driving. So most of the times, I’ll have a CD in the stereo and sing along at the top of my lungs usually, and whenever this song comes on (track 3 I believe in the mix cd I made for that girl…I kept a copy too). I try to sing along with it too cuz it’s so damn catchy, especially the chorus. It’s not a pretty sight as I try to hit those high notes with my awkward falsetto but it’s hell of a lot of fun and you can’t help but feel happy listening to this song. so I say give it a go. Pop it into your stereo and sing along. Happy singing!

(Lyrics)
Dear, I fear we’re facing a problem
you love me no longer, I know
and maybe there is nothing that I can do
to make you do

Mama tells me I shouldn’t bother
that I ought to stick to another man
a man that surely deserves me
but I think you do!

So I cry, I pray and I beg

Love me love me
say that you love me
fool me fool me
go on and fool me
love me love me
pretend that you love me
leave me leave me
just say that you need me
Love me love me
say that you love me
leave me leave me
just say that you need me
I can’t care ’bout anything but you…

Lately I have desperately pondered,
spent my nights awake and I wonder
what I could have done in another way
to make you stay
Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion
I don’t care if you really care
as long as you don’t go

Mmkay…here’s the premise…I’m going to write about a song every post, hopefully with the mp3 streaming so I can share some good music and how it affects me and blah blah blah. Hopefully it’ll turn out well so here goes.

First song of the blog!

Mardy Bum by Arctic Monkeys

I first heard this song while working in Hollister in Knoxville. It was one of the few songs on the playlist at the store that was actually quite decent, and I could sing along with. One of the traits that i love in music, being able to sing along. Anyhoos, I liked it pretty much immediately and since I heard it almost constantly (those of you who’ve worked in a store like Hollister know what I’m talking about) it grew on me quickly. The chilled and relaxed feel of the guitar riffs fit into the Hollister vibe, but something about the British accent combined with the unique and captivating lyrics create the basis for an awesome song that’s catchy and relaxing which to me is a recipe for an instant favorite. So enjoy.

(Here are the lyrics)

Well now then Mardy Bum
I’ve seen your frown
And it’s like looking down the barrel of a gun
And it goes off
And out come all these words
Oh there’s a very pleasant side to you
A side I much prefer
It’s one that laughs and jokes around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was up, up and away
Oh, but it’s right hard to remember
That on a day like today when you’re all argumentative
And you’ve got the face on

Well now then Mardy Bum
Oh I’m in trouble again, aren’t I
I thought as much
Cause you turned over there
Pulling that silent disappointment face
The one that I can’t bear

Why can’t we just laugh and joke around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was up, up and away
Oh, but it’s right hard to remember
That on a day like today when you’re all argumentative
And you’ve got the face on

And yeah I’m sorry I was late
but I missed the train
And then the traffic was a state
And I can’t be arsed to carry on in this debate
That reoccurs, oh when you say I don’t care
but of course I do, yet I clearly do!

So laugh and joke around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was up, up and away
Oh, but it’s right hard to remember
That on a day like today when you’re all argumentative
And you’ve got the face on
