The Biebs!

Because I am a teenage girl, it was pretty much inevitable that I would end up writing a post about Justin Bieber. I figured that there was no better day to do so than on his birthday (mind you, I only know that it is his birthday from some extremely obsessed friends). It seems like when it comes to The Biebs, there are two groups: those who want him to be “slowly dipped in acid,” as professed by the Facebook page, and those who think that one day, they will be Mrs. Bieber and as a result, have all of his likes, dislikes, and personality traits memorized. This confuses me. Why are there only two options, both extremes? Can’t I like some of his songs, but not others? Can’t I sort of like him, but not have his face plastered on every single surface and fabric? Or is Justin Bieber like orange marmalade– one of those things that you either love, or hate? To help me on this endevour, I have another poll for you.

Chicken Music for the Soul

Music really is amazing. So, I decided to share with you my current favorites. Some are popular, some maybe aren’t as much, but all are amazing, and I hope you’ll give ’em a shot!

Dog Days Are Over
by: Florence and the Machine
I fell in love with this song from the moment I first heard it. The beat is SO catchy, I literally cannot sit still when I’m listening to it.

Magic (feat. Rivers Cuomo)
by: B.o.B
I can’t stand the chorus (sorry, Rivers!) but B.o.B delivers some seriously amazing rap skills on the verse.

Today Was a Fairytale
by: Taylor Swift
I love Taylor, I love the movie this appears in (Valentine’s Day—watch it!), and I LOVE this song.

The Scientist
by: Coldplay
This song almost brought me to tears. It’s super emotional, without being overly sappy. Perfect!

by: Taylor Swift
If you haven’t noticed, I’m a big Taylor Swift fan. This song does it all: it tells a story, gives great advice, and makes you sing along.

Breathe (2 AM)
by: Anna Nalick
This is one of those songs that you hear on the radio all the time, but never really pay attention to. I ask you to reconsider with this one. The lyrics are astounding.

by: EMF
It’s an oldie, yes. But definitely a goodie. It also happens to be the perfect air-band song. Go ahead, try it. You know you want to.

I Am Not a Robot
by: Marina & the Diamonds
This song is quirky, fun, and to the point, but I’m willing to bet you’ve never heard it (I discovered it when it was the freebie of the week on iTunes). Remedy that, will you?

What I’ve Done
by: Linkin Park
This is a song about learning how to forgive yourself, with an extremely catchy beat to boot.

by: Coldplay
I’m willing to bet that you don’t recognize the title, but I’m also willing to bet that if I played it for you, you’d know it immediately.

Well, there you go. Disagree with me on my choices if you will, but know that you’re wrong 🙂

Later, alligators!
