June: On Repeat

This month was largely consumed with specific artists and not that many of them for a change. Also, none of which were influenced by edgyauthor? Gosh, it feels wrong to even say that since she is so musically inspirational to me, but this is the truth of June. My mind wanted to hear specific things and that’s pretty much all I let it have.

What exactly was that, you ask? So let’s go!

So, it started with a band that bled into June from May that I’ve definitely loved for a long time, but somehow lost track of all their latest albums (bad me, I know). After buying more than one of the ones I’ve missed, I just couldn’t get enough of them – even as new must-hear tunes poured into my ears in June and that band was Mindless Self Indulgence.

Most played by the end of June was: “3 S’”

A close second was: “Uncle”

Other tracks that lived on repeat (because there were tons and you should totally click all the links) include:

Never Wanted to Dance
Lights Out
On It
Written in Cold Blood

Next on the most played for the month was one of my all time favorite bands and the most influential band of my current WIP, Paramore. Sadly, two of their members left them a little while ago, but this latest track proves that they’re more than capable of moving on without them. The track is from the latest Transformers movie, but I have to say my current book wants to claim it as theirs! 😉


And lastly (but certainly not the least by any means): Arctic Monkeys. Hands down this is my favorite band. Anyone whose read my blog for long enough should know this (shoot, anyone who really knows me should know this and if you don’t, shame on you!). With the release of “Suck it and See” on June 7th they pretty much dominated the remainder of June’s music choices and I AM NOT COMPLAING! Obviously, from previous posts, you already know I loved Brick by Brick, Don’t Sit Down (Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair), and Library Pictures, but in addition to these tracks a few newbie’s made their way to the most played like:

“All My Own Stunts”

A close second was: “Reckless Serenade” (oh, Alex Turner’s voice in this one… *SWOON*)

Other MOST played tracks included:

The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala and Piledriver Waltz! Overall the entire album is great, but these couple songs really dominated it as a whole! You should definitely check it out!

In addition to all of these MOST played tracks/artists… Heath (my fiancé) got me into this artist, Aloe Black , and in particular this track:

”I Need a Dollar”

It has that great old school feel to it, the kind of sound you rarely hear anymore and that alone is refreshing.

Outside of these tracks on repeat I’ve been listening to a playlist that’s about 300+ tracks deep at this point in hopes of actually writing and… AND… it’s starting to work. While the words haven’t actually hit the paper yet, they are happening in my mind and I’m just hoping this 3 day weekend will be the much needed jump start in the third round of re-writes I need. Wish me luck!

Hope all of you are living in music-bliss like I am almost always. Feel free to share your faves, because I’m always looking for something new!

Peace – Sarah

    LOL, I just sent you an email saying how “3 S'” is one of my most-played MSI songs, and how I’ve been listening to “Uncle” more lately. XD

    Arctic Monkeys is your fave band? I had no idea! [/joke]

    YAY about words coming to you, finally! Music better continue to motivate you this weekend so we can finally see those words on paper! (Or a computer screen, whichever, haha.) Good luck!

    These are the four songs I’ve listened to heaps lately: “I Think I Love You” by Kaci (448x), “Revolution” by Aimee Allen (375x), “As a Blonde” by Fefe Dobson (344x), and “Are You With Me” by Vaux (172x). I’m also getting really into Something Happens at the moment. “These Are Not My Friends” is the current song on repeat. Only time will tell if it becomes a most played song in July…heh.

      I’m so glad you’re getting into MSI as much as I am. It’s nice to have someone to squee over them with finally.

      And you joke about not knowing Arctic Monkeys is my fave band, but I bet you some of my own family members wouldn’t know cause they just don’t pay attention.

      Have you sent me all these songs you’re listening to on repeat? I’ll have to check to see and give them a listen. I know I got a “Something Happens” email today and still have plenty of Fefe to check out… maybe I can do that tonight.

      No words have actually made it to paper today, but I did spend some time researching tattoo stuff and have come to what I think is a great conclusion 😉 I think I’ll save the actual writing for tomorrow because tonight the guilt of backed up emails and LJ catch up is finally weighing down on me far too much.

        I don’t think I’ve sent you the Aimee Allen song. I’ll have to email you sometime soon!

        And you’ve most definitely come up with a great conclusion when it comes to the tattoos! I can’t wait to start sketching ’em sometime and–upon your approval–add those tattoos to some old pieces of art. 😉

        Good luck writing tomorrow!
