List Ten Songs That You’re Loving Right Now

WARNING: Some songs have strong language. 

|One|

Ethnic Zorigoo Ft. Zaya (Tatar) Khuleg baatar

The song is a rap and Mongolian throat singing mix. You want music that will pump you up this is the song to do it. Whenever I’ve doing cardio or writing a scene where my characters are running/ escaping/ having an epic battle this is the song I listen to.

Oh, and the music video is pretty awesome too. I love Tibetan Mastiffs… to bad they are massive and I’m so tiny.

Wazer Wifle – Open Mind – Fallout 3 Rap

I love this song only because of it’s nerd credit. The crew that came up with this song brings back all my Fallout memories and it is easy to sing along to.

|Three|

Ichirin no Hana – High And Mighty Colour

Call back to my J-Rock/ J-Pop days. I fell in love with this song in high school after hearing it as the opening of season two or three of Bleach. I just thought it was awesome, and has a similar sound to Evanescence.

|Four|

Until the Day You Die – Abney Park

When I went through my Steampunk phase I couldn’t help but fall in love with Abney Park. To this day this song is on my favourites list. It just has a unique old timely sound that not many bands share.

|Five|

Stardust – Gemini Syndrome

I’m all over the place when it comes to music. I think I like this band because it reminds me of Blind Guardian, Skillet, and Rise Against.

|Six| 

Trooper – Iron Maiden  & Army of the Night – Powerwolf

If you hear Trooper or Powerwolf blasting I’m probably pissed off at something, or need a pick-me-up. I don’t know why, but death metal/ hard rock makes me feel better…

|Seven|

Riptide Le Vance Joy in Gaeilge

I love the original version but there is something about kids getting together to share in their passions that makes this so much more magical. Also it is in Gaeilge (Irish Gaelic). You can’t go wrong with listening to anything in Gaeilge. (I should know… I have a vast collection of Gaeilge music…)

|Eight|

Rule the World – Walk Off the Earth

They are a Canadian band from Burlington, Ontario… which is like 30 minutes from where I grew up. I couldn’t help but be a proud Canadian and share the awesomeness of this band.

 

|Nine|

Fight Song – Rachel Platten 

This song… what can I say about this song…

It is powerful. It is motivating… and probably helped hold me together when I lost the most important person in my life. This song pushed me to find the light in a shitty situation, and Child of the Light was born.

This song helped me re-evaluate what I was doing with my life, and helped me realize I was happiest when writing. Life is short and you need to do what you love. My mom taught me that and the song helped me focus enough to see that.

|Ten|

Shut up and Dance – Walk The Moon

This song has taken over my life. I scream sing it whenever it comes on the radio… which makes it awkward when it plays at work but people are starting to realize that this is my song.

I went through an 80’s music phase in high school and this just reminds me off all the good music I had blasting on my SanDisc.

This song also reminds me of my mom, as she would have likely gotten up and scream sung the song along with me. It brings back a lot of good memories and is probably why I love this song more than I should.

I’m not going to lie… 1 million of those 157 million views are probably me. XD

*BONUS*

Downtown – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Let’s be honest. My list wouldn’t be complete without Macklemore… he’s my boy. Plus, I love musicals and this song just radiates Rent for some reason…
