121 Reasons I Love Music: 67-77

67. It’s a special feeling to know the secret of why someone else loves a song so incredibly much. “Your New Twin Sized Bed” by Death Cab for Cutie.

68. A song featured in a commercial can still be rad. “Getting Better” (cover) by Gomez. and “The Funeral” by Band of Horses.

69. I have about as much street cred as Drake (AKA Aubrey Graham), but I still love him. “Over” by Drake.

70. A song can get covered a dozen times and still yield amazing results. “Meet Me In The City” by Gomez and “Meet Me In The City” by The Black Keys.

71.When I had a long commute, late at night I knew what song to put on at what point in the drive to get me right to my front door. “The Lightning Strike” by Snow Patrol.

72. Some song titles are literally accurate and awesomely so. “Pretty Song” by Get Back Loretta and “Simple Song” by The Shins.

73. For better or worse, I know the Cupid Shuffle. “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid.

74. Musicals don’t suck. “One Day I’ll Fly Away” by Nicole Kidman from Moulin Rouge.

75. I like to completely lose my shit at shows and dance like an absolute fool. Watch out. “1901” by Phoenix.

76. A mash-up, as a whole, can be better than the sum of its parts. “Everlasting Shine Blockaz” by Wick-It the Instigator (“Everlasting Light” by The Black Keys + “Shine Blockas” by Big Boi.)

77. I may not be a Zeppelin fan, but I love how my brother sings it. “D’yer Mak’er” by Led Zeppelin.


About Jen Van Tieghem

There aren’t many things I love more than music. While life spins away at a rapid beat I’ve realized it’s important to spend it doing what I love – enjoying music in San Diego. I have a handful of favorite venues, a heart full of favorite bands, and decided to write about it.
