Car Crash

Okay, so a few weeks ago I took advantage of the single of the week or discovery download or whatever from iTunes, and downloaded Car Crash by Matt Nathanson from the album “Some Mad Hope”

This song is gorgeous. I highly recommend  checking it out if you get the chance.

I want to feel the car crash
I want to feel it capsize
I want to feel the bomb drop, the earth stop ’till I’m satisfied

Move Your Dead CSS

“C’mon boys and girls,
come a little closer.
I’m the reanimator.”

 Move Your Dead Bones by the Dr. Reanimator is probably one of the catchiest electronic songs I think I’ve ever heard. I just got it yesterday and my play count is already 37.  I highly recommend listening to it if you get the chance.

In other news, spending a bit of time today cleaning up the layout CSS. I think I’m going to tackle the comment CSS and see where that gets me.

Speaking of CSS, if you’re interested in how I did the header, I made a tutorial for the CSS and posted it on Deviantart. Click below if you’re interested. ^_^

I love you iTunes Music Store

For it has given me a copy of Dragostea Din Tei by O-zone in the original Romanian and an English Mix.

I love this song. And it’s all thanks to this flash that I’ve found wandering around. I still don’t know who made it; but Dance Kappa Dance!!1

  1. Gojyo from Saiyuki, in case someone doesn’t know why that’s so amusing. :P

Hirano Aya Kick

To think that the women who sings “Misa’s Song” from Death Note is the same as “Lost my Music” & “God Knows…” from the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are the same person is amazing – you can hear it; but the vocal qualities are just so different.

But, since I’m on a DN kick, we’ll stick with “Misa no Uta” or “Misa’s Song.”1

“Misa no Uta”:

First of all – I love the breathy, almost airy tone that she has while it’s being sung. It gives that slightly morbid, eerie tone while still sticking with a slightly upbeat, almost child-like song. I’m almost reminded of a fair or a carnival, a merry-go-round if you will; It creates a lovely picture.

Speaking, the scene in the Death Note Anime that this came from was striking as well. It was beautifully animated and had a very nice feel to it – so check out episode 25 if you want to see an anime extra (as in not in the manga) done very well.

But, if Misa’s not your thing – definitely check out Hirano Aya’s “God Knows…” and “Lost My Music” – they’re more upbeat and rockish; very catchy. ^_^

“Futari ni God Bless…”2 – “God Knows…”

“Ki o tsukete. Kami-sama wa miteru…”3 – “Misa no Uta”

  1. Here’s a good link to see the lyrics, hiragana and a translation: Words of Song: Misa’s Song
  2. English: “God Bless the two of us.”
  3. English: “Pay Attention/Be Careful. God is watching.

いい歌だよ(A good song.)

“There’s a Fine, Fine Line” from the Broadway Play, Avenue Q. (Performance by Stephanie D’Abruzzo)

I’ve been listening to this song on loop for quite some time now. It’s just a gorgeous song and I love it. As one of the more serious songs from the Avenue Q soundtrack, you’d think that it was out of place – but it fits in so well with the themes the play had been setting up. The lyrics are simple, yet effective and D’Abruzzo’s voice does a wonderful job with it. I recommend it and the rest of the soundtrack as well. ^_^

There’s a fine, fine line between a fairy tale and a lie;
And there’s a fine, fine line between “You’re wonderful” and “Goodbye.”
I guess if someone doesn’t love you back it isn’t such a crime,
But there’s a fine, fine line between love
And a waste of your time.
