|Why Music Is So Important To Me|
The past few days have sucked hard, but, as per usual, music is helping me keep my shit together. rList is a combination of albums I love, and recent digs, along with a description of something or other.
Music is always there for me. I've been losing a lot of friends lately, and I'm not totally sure why at this point. But no matter what happens, no matter what mood I'm in, I can always find music that will keep me calm.
The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me
Music is a central part of my life. Even when I'm not listening, I invariably have a song stuck in my head, and it helps get me through whatever it is I'm doing at the time. It keeps me entertained.
|3||Death Cab for Cutie|
I have a broad taste, maybe not compared to some of the users on here, but compared to everyone else around me, it's usually broadest. It gives me something to talk about with people since I lead a rather uninteresting life. If only more people shared my music preferences.
When life gets bland, I always have some musical release and/or concert to look forward to. It's one of those "sure, this shit is terrible now, but soon..." things. Kind of like how I missed out on fun. tickets, but I still have St. Vincent to look forward to.
|5||Between the Buried and Me|
It's something that sets me apart from most people. Almost everybody has a hobby; working on cars, collecting stamps or some shit. Mine is purely music. I feel like people always think I'm weird because I listen to so much and spend so much time on it, but fuck you, you have your things and I have mine. To each their own.
|6||Every Time I Die|
I like to try new things, and in the musical world, you will never run out of new things to try.
Concerts are my favorite things in the world. Hands down. When I go to one, it's one of the few times I feel like I fit in. Screaming out the lyrics to one of my favorite songs with hundreds of other people, all of us moving together as if one being, it's exhilarating. If I could go to one every single day, I would always be a happy person.
There is always a debate to be had about music. Nobody has exactly the same taste. When two people can talk about what they like/don't like in a clam manner, it can be an enjoyable discussion. Usually though, it turns into "FUCK YOU YOUR TASTE IS SHIT MINE IS BEST LOLOLOL"
Aim and Ignite
I've always wanted to learn how to play music, but I've never had the resources. Damnit, when I graduate college, I'm gonna learn every fucking instrument I can. Even if I suck, it'll still be fun.
Open Your Heart
It keeps me grounded to reality. Sometimes, I think I'm going crazy, or I think that I'm the only person that thinks the things I do. Then I'll hear a song that expresses those very things I'm thinking, and I always feel better.
I'm Not a Fan, but the Kids Love It!
Sometimes, you can get quite the laugh out of some really shitty, terrible music, and get an ego boost because you know that you'll never suck as much as these guys do.
Well, I'm running out of reasons already. Probably could have split some of these others up.
How about you guys out there, anything to add to this?
|14||At the Drive-In|
Relationship of Command
I'll probably get called a faggot for this list.
Rust In Peace
A classic that I still need to listen to
Has anybody seen this woman perform live? If so, is she good?
|17|| ||Black Veil Brides|
I don't know any of their album names and I don't give enough fucks to look one up
I usually steer clear of anybody that likes this group.
|18||The Dear Hunter|
The Color Spectrum (Complete Collection)
Met a guy yesterday that likes this. He pretty much made my entire day. It's rare that I meet someone on campus that has good taste.
I feel like if I ever get dumped again, I'll put this album on repeat for a month.
This will be a good summertime album
Anybody that hasn't already heard this and likes indie popish stuff, listen to it. It's fucking fantastic.
I fucking hated this when I first listened to it. But I listened to it a couple more times and it keeps growing on me.
Are they ever going to release another goddamn album?
Say Hello to Sunshine
Yeah, I'm completely out of things to say.
|Recs are always welcome of course, as long as they have nothing to do with Black Veil Brides of Brokencyde obviously. |
|I feel the same way man. music is so important to me. though I've never met anyone who thought i was weird for it. Great list|
|Only thing I can brag about.|
|i feel yah on every one of these points brah|
|Also, because no gf.|
|You sputnik bros are like the only people I can chat with about this shit now. |
|How does this list not have an Elliott Smith album on it?|
|Instead of tying pictures to memories I associate music with memories, listening to some bands is remembering. |
|yea man, i always get really happy when i meet/speak with someone who is either genuinely interested in hearing new shit or doesn't call me a hipster for liking a band that i don't even consider that obscure, such as beirut/morning benders/swarms etc.|
|You don't have them ranked so listen to pavement-Slanted and Enchanted and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.|
I've been listening to them a lot lately, and with the weather, it's perfect to make you feel good
|what acanthus said  artist in the ambulance will always give me memories of basketball game warm ups|
|music elitist question. if someone says they love music but only listens to one genre of music, do they love music or just a genre? |
|it makes them boring. try something new|
|hard to say. i don't even really want to think about that lol|
|yea, i have a roommate who listens to nothing but pop-punk but claims to love music yet will never relisten to a single rec or song i play in the house. the nights he chooses the drinkin music suck cause it's non stop pop punk|
|You just need a good girlfriend and most of these things that you listed will be fulfilled.|
|'You just need a good girlfriend' show me a bitch who i can stand for more than a couple months and i will show you a sputnik thread with nothing but justin bieber/nickelback lovers.|
|"You just need a good girlfriend and most of these things that you listed will be fulfilled."|
But, I have one of those.
|i know these two girls, one of them knows faith no more and the other know what black metal is. pretty cool|
|"But, I have one of those."|
Then get a second.
|Then get a second.  jk, monogomy ftw. but back to the music thing, frank turner's substitute perfectly describes my feelings about women/music|
|music helps me with my systematic emotional repression.|
|yeah substitute is great|
|"systematic emotional repression" lol wut? |
|Cannibal Corpse helps me through some rough times m/|
^im fucking serious here
|See a Shuyin comment|
know he's going to mention Cannibal Corpse
You know Shuyin, your incessant rec'ing of CC actually makes me want to try them, and I'm not a fan of death metal much at all.
|im not rec'ing cannibal corpse tho..|
|You do pretty much everywhere else though. |
|Usually though, it turns into "FUCK YOU YOUR TASTE IS SHIT MINE IS BEST LOLOLOL"|
that's because it's usually true
|music is 90% of me. i basically listen to it every single day|
|throne did you lay out in the sun too long?|
is all the water in your body in the clouds?
|"When I go to one, it's one of the few times I feel like I fit in. Screaming out the lyrics to one of my favorite songs with hundreds of other people, all of us moving together as if one being, it's exhilarating."|
this so hard
|just checked out that Sharks album, love it man :) need some summer music right now|
|judging by the comments attached to the albums your either a young teenager or someone with a mental deficiancy. Eventually you'l realise that life is life, shit happens and listening to music doesnt make you any more special or unique than the next person. So just enjoy it for what it is and don't make such a big deal about it.|
|bitch I'm 91% music beat that|
|props for 10|
|Moose you just crushed most of Sputnik's musical egos.|
|Actually Moose, I'm 19, and my mind is quite okay. Just because I'm not like you doesn't mean I'm immature or am mentally unstable. |
