Hello again. Remember me?

Yeah, I'm the blog writer that ALMOST abandoned her blog. Well, since summer is FINALLY just around the bend and because I will be as bored as HECK over the summer, I'd thought I'd start blogging again.

"Angels" by Within Temptation

Link is now up! It's the Black Symphony version of the song.

This song starts out really pretty with strings and Sharon den Adel's soprano voice. There is no doubt that she's a soprano. Then drums slowly build up into the chorus. It kinda stays on the same level from there.

"Angels" is about a person who the singer thought was good and nice etc., but they turn out to be mean and cruel. This song is my theme song right now for reasons I'm not saying. The video is also about someone like that. The singer is a hitch-hiker, and a vicar picks her up in his convertable. Long story short, he turns out to be a killer of women. So you can guess what happens. But there's sort of a twist, and if you watch it, I'm telling you, it's a weird video.

I give this song 4 out of 5 stars. It's too high for us altos to sing along with. And it's not the best song ever.

"Human" by the Killers

Link is here!

This song is pretty cool. As I type these words, the chorus is running through my head....


It's pretty catchy and gets stuck in your head like that *snaps*. I have no clue what it's about, but it's a lot of fun to play on Guitar Hero. You have to download it, though.

I give this song 4 out of 5 stars. I like it, but I don't just love it.

"1000 Oceans" by Tokio Hotel - Sorry Ashley!

I owe an apology to Ashley for not rating the Killers' "Day And Age". Well, I'll give it 4 stars. Happy Ashley?

Anyway, back to the review.

I chose this song to review because I love this song, and I had yet to do a song by Tokio Hotel.

This song is kinda slow, yet kinda not. I love how after you listen to it several times, the bass is clearly heard, and I LOVE bass. Not that the other instruments suck.

"1000 Oceans" is about...
Well, it's about something. It's about..having to go through hard times or deal with obstacles in order to be happy and/or be with the one you love and/or live how you want to live, not what someone else wants for you.. For example:

We have to go a thousand oceans wide
A thousand times against an endless tide
We'll be free to live our lives.

This song has my favorite line from any song that I've heard so far. The line is: Please don't drift away from me. I just think it's so...touching. Besides the fact that Bill (the singer) can sound kinda whiny at times.

I give this song 5 out of 5 stars. The only thing it's lacking is a good piano part.

rock on,


PS: Check out Tokio Hotel's new DVD, Tokio Hotel TV: Caught On Camera. I've watched it, and it's awesome!

Newest Additon

Well, there's a new addition to the blog: Terry the Stingray.

You're probably thinking, What the **** is up with this insane blogger? Why the **** is she NAMING a freaking stingray?! That's not even real?!

He's cool.
And he needs a name.

He's named after Evanescence's guitarist, Terry Balsamo (is that how you spell it? I think it is). Anyway, I looked on Facebook and he has ELEVEN fans the last time I checked. That's including me.

I was like, What is up with that?! The music he and Amy Lee cowrote for The Open Door is amazing! He deserves more credit!!

So that's why I named an animated stingray after my favorite guitarist.

Pandora - The Best Online Radio

This is the BEST online radio.


So, click on the title to go to the site, type in a song or artist name, and start listening!

Even though it's a short review (yes, it's a review), I give this site 5 out of 5 stars. I've discovered new songs and artists, including one of my new (well, new at the time) favorite bands, Within Temptation.

rock on,


PS: I've discovered that if you get the chance and you're at school, this site is not blocked. I'm not sure why, but it's not. So if you have a free period or a period where you can do almost anything except murder etc., then listen!!

Misheard Lyrics.

Well, since no one (except Ashley-sama) is sending in stuff to review, I decided to have a Misheard Lyrics post.

If you don't know what it is, it's kinda self-explanatory. Basically, people who were: a) bored b) have no life c) had nothing better to do or d) some other reason took a song, came up with some wacky lyrics, and made it into a YouTube video.

One of my favorites is "Tourniquet" by Evanscence. The video was posted by YamiGekusu. Click on the blog title to see it.

Feel free to send these in if you feel like they're worth putting on here.

And remember...

This blog has two parts. One part is provided by me, the other by you, the reader. I need your help in order to make this blog happen.

So. Anyways.
