Feelings Don't Forget

"Called Out In the Dark" - Snow Patrol
When I think about Snow Patrol, I like their songs but they tend to fade into the background quicker than others. Not out of dislike or blandness. They just seem to be good background music. You always know it's them, because of the distinct voice/style. But... they feel like they're just a part of it. A part of life, if that makes sense. And if it doesn't make sense, too bad.

"Reverse" - Now It's Overhead
For me, May seemed to be a very rainy month. I ultimately prefer the sunshine, but I love me some thunderstorms. But there's a particular type of rainy... During the day, where it's a little bit darker than dreary, but a little bit lighter than gloomy. It's raining, but just barely. Just enough to be called rain, rather than drizzle. And there are a fair few of Now It's Overhead songs that fit that type of rainy. This is probably second, only to Wait In A Line.

"Do You Believe Me?" - The Juliana Theory
A band I forget about, despite teaching myself bass to one of their songs. I missed this album when it came out, but once I found out about it made the effort to get it, and every once in a while it snags me from the shuffled playlists.

"Someday" - Cary Brothers
Zach Braff is the entire reason I know of Cary Brothers. First the Garden State soundtrack, then The Last Kiss, and now because of the Wish I Was Here Kickstarter. All of which you should check out, if you haven't yet. The Kickstarter is closed, but remember it when the movie comes out. I guarantee it'll be worth watching.

"Burying Luck" - Minus the Bear
To me, it's a very subtle song. But the lyrics that influenced the title are what make me love it most, the concept of someone burying your luck. And the acoustic version of it emphasizes the subtlety of it even more.

"Remains" - Matt Pond PA
"I can't remember which movie taught me purpose
I can't remember which movie taught me pain
I would've been the one baptized in all your water
I would've been the one submerged under your rain
This is not how I want to be forgotten
This is not how I want to leave remains"
Opening of the song, and it stuck with me. Just like the first song I ever heard by him.

"Oblivion" (feat. Susanne Sundfør) - M83
I saw the trailer for the movie Oblivion, and despite Tom Cruise, I wanted to see it. Then I found out that M83 was responsible for the soundtrack. That just intrigued me more. Sadly, I still haven't seen the movie. But I have at least listened to the soundtrack!

"Get Lucky" (feat Pharrell Williams) - Daft Punk
Well. It's Daft Punk. And the released an amazing album. And this was the amazing single. Pretty simple, right? And then, of course, there was this pretty awesome cover, and after that it was all over. Between the two, I couldn't get it out of my head.
