Feel-good songs of the year

Four of my favourite songs of the year, which cheer me up no matter what i’m feeling:

The Holloways – Generator

May i remind you that you don’t live in poverty
You’ve got your youth, and you’ve got a roof over your head.

Noah and the Whale – Five Years Time

And though nearly all these moments are just in my head
I’ll be thinking about them as i’m lying in bed
And i know that really, it might not even come true
But in my mind i’m having a pretty good time with you.

A-Punk – Vampire Weekend

No point quoting any lyrics here – it’s the tune and the rhythm that i like so much!

Frank Turner – Reasons not to be an idiot

Why are you sat at home?
Your’re not designed to be alone.
It’s a lovely sunny day
Get up, get down and get outside!

Funny, all these songs have a kind of folk feel to them.

What are your favourite songs of the year? Not necessarily released this year, but what have you enjoyed listening to?

  1. i have enjoyed:

    >>>my best friend, nita, singing happy birthday to me
    >>>anything that my dog will sing along with
    >>>L7 — bite the wax tadpole … because it’s fun to dance along to and the lyrics are hysterical
    >>>the residents — kaw-liga … i love to listen to all of the mixes one after another. i think hank williams would love it too
    >>>living colour — the vivid album. reminds me of living in london for some reason. i loved radio caroline!

    i know there’s more … this is a hard question!

  2. Heheh, i love how certain songs become associated in our minds with particular times of our life. I’m going to have to look up a few of your songs and hear what you’ve been enjoying! :)

  3. Many of us might wonder, what is waterboarding? It is said that Waterboarding is a form of “enhanced interrogation,” otherwise known as torture. It involves placing a person on a downward sloping board and pouring water over their upturned face so as to persuade a feeling of drowning, in order to get information to the person who is suspected. The damage it can cause takes more than an online cash advance to undo. President Obama has issued an executive order to the effect that those CIA officers having partaken won't be prosecuted, which critics’ claim has damaged our national security and human rights image abroad. Many people would give installment loans to settle the debates over what is waterboarding– torture or not. I feel very disappointed to the person who used this kind of brutal way just to cross-examine a suspected person.

  4. I’m also fond of listening music, some songs remind me of the significant moment in my life.Listening to my favorite songs is my coping mechanism when I’m having problem such a financial mattes. Anyway we are having bad economy now, the best way to lessen the financial burden is to repair our credit. The credit bureaus are required by law to give you one free report per year, so start there to find out if you need to repair your credit. Financial responsibility is essential, and you should avoid late payments, even if it means credit cards, or using a payday cash advance loan to bridge a temporary gap. It's better to get on the ball sooner rather than later, because credit follows you everywhere, as much as it pains to side with an utterly insipid band on TV. Some would give installment loans to silence them, but it is good to repair your credit.
