Favorite line: N/A

Why: Well, there aren’t any lyrics, which is just fine because a song like this shouldn’t have any.

SONG OF THE DAY QUATTRO CENTO DICIANOVE: TiK-ToK by Ke$ha 

This reminds me of: FK, EJ, GL, UP, fall 2009, pre-games, the best playlist ever

Favorite line: “Gonna smack him if he gettin’ too drunk (drunk)…”

Why: It’s the closest thing condemning “boys will be boys” mentality that you’ll get from pop culture…soooo I’ll take it.

SONG OF THE DAY QUATRE CENT DIX-HUIT: A Mess It Grows by He is We (A Mess It Grows, 2009)

This reminds me of: I think the last time this song came up on the SOTD playlist I listed things that reminded me of the first time I heard this song: ET, coffee shops, pledge classes, winter 2010. But really, this song is so appropriate for spring 2010

Favorite line"I woke up, decided I’d find my way around this town." 

Why: It’s true that we all need somebody to lean on, but when you don’t have any (or many) surrogate shoulders, you have to lean forward and keep it moving. You have no other choices.

This reminds me of: Ares—I think.

Favorite line: “And there ain’t no one to buy our innocence.” 

Why: Maybe not, but I do think there’s someone who has bought our guilt. 

BONUS!: Shout out to it being the 3rd anniversary of my Big Moves move.

SONG OF THE DAY #416: Gamers Interlude by Criss Chords (Anonymous Volume!, 2010)

This reminds me of: My sister, who is the most unsuspecting gamer/nerd!

Favorite line: “‘Oh well, you know I’m a gamer/you know I got gamer friends…”

SONG OF THE DAY CUATRO CIENTO QUINCE: Shackles (Praise You) by Mary Mary (Thankful, 2000)

This reminds me of: AL, AT, skits, Saturdays, LRL, SPBC, middle school

Favorite line: “You broke the chains now I can lift my hands…”

Why: I feel like regardless of what you believe/don’t believe, if you hear this song (and you like to dance), you’ll move.

SONG OF THE DAY QUATTRO CENTO QUATTORDICI: You and I Both by Jason Mraz (Waiting for My Rocket to Come, 2002)

This reminds me of: BJ, TF, my old basement, AK

Favorite line: “I’ll think the bells inside have finally found you someone else and that’s okay…”

Why: I feel like this line doesn’t fit in this song. I’m no relationship expert, but I feel like you would NOT be okay with your former swoon finding someone else if this song describes your current sentiments towards them.

SONG OF THE DAY QUATRE CENT TREIZE: How to Save a Life by The Fray (How to Save a Life, 2005)

This reminds me of: WA, RM/S’s J for some reason, prom, Myspace

Favorite line: “And I would have stayed up with you all night/had I known how to save a life.”

Why: I usually refrain from the obvious lines, but I had to pick this one because I essentially thought these words just the other day. Hindsight is 20/20.
