Violent Soho - Jesus Stole My Girlfriend

I think the lyrics are pretty funny:

Jesus Stole My Girlfriend

Every day every afternoon
tried so hard but lost to God.

This time next year I´ll be married
this time next year I´ll say sorry
but Jesus stole my girlfriend.

I thought you´re my friend. I´ll guess again
I look to the clouds God gives me a frown.

This time next year I´ll be married
this time next year I´ll say sorry
but Jesus stole my girlfriend.

Try to talk to me again.
I´ll never even sing or do anything.

Jesus stole my girlfriend.

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Lady Gaga - The Fame Monster

I don't know why the photographer didn't tell her that her mascara was running. You'd think a professional would notice something like that!

This album is kind of an add-on to her Fame CD, it includes 8 more songs that keep me going while I'm spring cleaning.

My fav right now is Bad Romance. It's still stuck in my head!

Check out the video here.

Friday, March 26, 2010

Jack Johnson - On and On

My favorite song is Taylor.

Listen HERE

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth

This is a great album to play on a rainy day. Especially if you have to drive home in the rain accompanied with a billion other people who decided they need to get home from work too so the freeways are jam packed.

Yeah, it's a good album for that.

Friday, March 19, 2010

Flyleaf: Treasure

Treasure is my favorite song from Flyleaf's Memento album. I love the lead singer, Lacey Mosley, her voice is amazing and I think she is just beautiful!

Listen Here


That night I felt like I'd become something treasured, different.

Can I tell you a story as we dance while the sun starts to bleed
Song of songs love is calling daughter wake up from your sleep

Refined I'll become the most dazzling precious treasure
I'll be treasured over all the earth

Bearing the gift of a new heart
Patience ablaze I'm slowly burning

//Refined ill become the most dazzling precious treasure
Ill be treasured over all the earth//

I am in awe and in shock
I'm in love and given away
I'm reserved with these words:

Can I tell you a story as we dance while the sun starts to bleed
Trees rejoice with the wind here
Hallelujah, Yes Shua

Tonight I've become the most dazzling precious treasure
I am treasured over all the earth

Just look at what he's done
How he's laying down his life
Take this life
Oh most dazzling precious treasure
Tonight I've become the most dazzling precious treasure
I am treasure over all the earth.

The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition

This song is constantly on the radio.


The song is okay but it's become a bit annoying.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

The White Stripes - Elephant

Today I set my ipod to shuffle and, as you probably have guessed, this White Stripes album came up. I haven't listened to it in a long long time, in fact I forgot I had it!

I'd say there are only 2 songs worth purchasing on this CD:

Track 1: Seven Nation Army
Track 9: The Hardest Button to Button

The rest of the CD is pretty forgettable and starts sounding all the same. At least to me.

So save your dough and just download those to songs on itunes!

30 Seconds To Mars - "Night of the Hunter"

"Night of the Hunter" is from their new album, "This is War", which I haven't listened to yet but I do like this song in particular. I own their last album but it was a little repetitive to me, all the songs sounded the same, so I'm curious to see how their new effort holds up.

Listen here

Night of the Hunter

I was born of the womb of a poisonous spell
Beaten and broken and chased from the lair
But I rise up above it, high up above it and see
I was hung from the tree made of tongues of the weak
The branches were bones of liars and thieves
Rise up above it, high up above and see

Pray to your god, open your heart
Whatever you do, don't be afraid of the dark
Cover your eyes, the devil inside

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it'll all just end, oh

(Une, deux, trois, cinq)
Blessed by a bitch from a bastard's seed
Pleasure to meet you but prepare to bleed
Rise, I'll rise, I'll rise
Skinned her alive, ripped her apart
Scattered her ashes, buried her heart
Rise up above it, high up above and see

Pray to your god, open your heart
Whatever you do, don't be afraid of the dark
Cover your eyes, the devil inside

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it'll all just end, oh

Honest to God I'll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I'll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I'll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I'll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it'll all just end, oh

Cage The Elephant

Their self titled debut album!

Friday, February 12, 2010

Alanis Morissette - Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie

I picked this used CD up at Gray Whale for 3 bucks! I remember listening to this when I was in High School. We even did a dance to a couple of the songs on it for the Drill Team.

Lots of good memories!

It's definitely a great angry chick CD!

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Flyleaf - Memento Mori

I love this cd. I am a big Fly Leaf fan and this CD is better than their first. There are so many good tracks plus it comes with a bonus CD with 4 additional songs!

Pink - Glitter In The Air

With the performance AND the song.

Cage The Elephant New Single - Back Against The Wall

I was introduced to Caged By The Elephant last year when their single "Aint No Rest For The Wicked" was released and instantly fell for them. They are a rock band but with a unique hip 21st century vibe.

This new single has a little softer feel to it but it is definitely worth checking out and if their new album is any reflection of this song, then I will definitely be buying the album too!

Justin Timberlake - Justified

Wandering around Grey Whale the other day, I happened across Justin's first CD, Justified. I'm a sucker for CDs, so I snagged it.

I loved his second album, Future Sex Love Sounds, so I that for $5? Why not. I listened to it over the weekend while I cleaned the house, and it definitely kept me going (and dancing)!

I love "Cry Me A River"

Linkin Park - Not Alone

After Linkin Park heard of the disaster that happened in Haiti, they resurrected a song they started three years ago called "Not Alone". It is available to download only and encourages fans to donate to the Haiti relief. It is a great song, it's one of their softer songs, which I love!

Linkin Park, along with Alanis Morissette, All-American Rejects, Dave Matthews Band, Enrique Iglesias, Hoobastank, Peter Gabriel, and others have all contributed to the "Download to Donate for Haiti" compilation.

Go to "Music For Relief" to download the album. 100% of the funds will help fund various Haiti Relief organizations.

Nelly Furtado - Whoa Nelly!

This was Nelly's debut album, before she went all hip hop on us. Which isn't a bad thing, I'm just sayin. This album is a mix of ethic, folk, and pop. You will probably recognize her song "I'm like a bird" which was one of the popular songs played on the radio.

Track List:

1. Hey, Man!
2. ....On The Radio (Remember The D...

Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream

I love old school Smashing Pumpkins. This album came out in 1993 and was SP's breakthrough album. I'm sure everyone has heard "Today" and "Disarm", they are classics! By listening to the first 2 tracks of the CD, "Cherub Rock" & "Quiet", you may be thinking the CD is all grungy but as you listen further it's really anti-grunge.

Here is the full track list:

1. Cherub Rock
2. Quiet
3. Today
4. Hummer
5. Rocket
6. Disarm
7. Soma
8. Geek U.S.A.
9. Mayonaise
10. Spaceboy
11. Silverfuck
12. Sweet Sweet
13. Luna

A Piano: The Collection - Tori Amos

Oh my God, there is so much music here I don't even know where to start. Yes Jeanne, 5 CDs is a lot to take in!

My husband gave this to me for Christmas and it wasn't easy to find! I just LOVE the packaging for this collection, look how gorgeous.

It even has Bösendorfer written on the side, which Tori has named the best piano in the world. These pianos follow Tori everywhere!

“All I knew was -- when I touched her -- that she became my friend. And it's not as if it were one piano, it's any Bösendorfer seems to have some kind of um, understanding. They can speak, and they can listen. And I think, when you play them, you become an extension. They give you the opportunity to, anyway. If you don't choose to have a relationship -- an affair -- with them, then that is your loss, I guess.” -Tori Amos

I've never played on a Bösendorfer but I hope to some day. You know, when I'm rich and can afford a 9 foot grand piano!! *drooling*
