1. Rette Mich - Tokio Hotel
2. Boten Anna - Basshunter
3. My Immortal - Evanescence
Personally, I identified with this song and this band throughout my years of on and off depression. Listening to them was like a hug for my young, adolescent self. I felt like they, and other bands in this genre, understood what I was feeling at the time.
4. Tied My Hands (Acoustic) - Seether
5. Dance or Die - Family Force 5
6. LoveStoned - Justin Timberlake
I love the beat in this song and how it changes up around the 3/4 mark. (If you don't already know this song, what have you been doing with your life?) This is just sexy all around. Sexy, bubbly, energetic, and makes you almost want to strut across the club and surprise-kiss that sweet young thang you've been glancing at all night. Yeah, almost. But there's no denying that it's sexy and JT knows it.
7. Forever - Red
8. Imaginary - Evanescence
9. Path-Vol 2 - Apocalyptica
[Since I originally wrote out this post by hand, as I did not have access to a computer at the time, this is where I ran out of ink in my pen and had to switch to my back-up pencil]
If you're interested, listen to their song "Path" with just the instrumentals before listening to this song (Path Vol 2) to find your own interpretation.
10. Holiday - Greenday
I think we're all familiar with their hit song "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," which has been over-popularized throughout the years, but so many of their other songs (such as this one) can go overlooked. Awesome to have this as the final song for this list!
Hope you enjoyed my little personal notes on how I came to know and love some of the songs on my iPod. Now, I want to know 1) Your go-to genre of music and 2) If you put your iPod library on shuffle, what are the first few songs that pop up?
