30 Days of Music: 25,26,27 – Blogmas 12/19

Feel free to join if you’d like!

25 – Your favorite song from a game

Bolero of Fire from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This is a fan version of it that I think turned out really, really nice. This song is one that Link learns in the fire temple after warping to the future. It’s lovely. 🙂

26 – A song that reminds you of your family

Summer’s End by Foo Fighters. This is one of my mom’s favorite songs and I can’t listen to it without thinking of her.

27 – A song that reminds you of your friends

Joker and the Thief by Wolfmother. Before I could drive, during the summer, my father would drive all us neighbor kids to get ice cream once or twice a week. We’d always listen to the same CD on the way, which was a mix with this song on it. So I suppose any of those songs would do, but this is the one I thought of first. Can’t listen now without thinking of shoving more kids than we were supposed to into a car and driving off for ice cream.

And that’s it for the prompts today!

But! I recently found a Finnish Christmas Carol that was covered by a few of my favorite singers!  (Namely Marco from Nightwish – the 4th singer in the vid, and Tony from Sonata Arctica – the 1st singer). It was so good and so pretty that I kinda went gaga and couldn’t resist posting it here. Ever heard a Finnish Christmas Carol? Now’s your chance.

7 – A song you like to listen to on max volume

Disturbed’s cover of The Sound of Silence, originally be Simon and Garfunkel. His voice, it is amazing. You can’t listen to this song without getting shivers. You NEED to blast it.

 

8 – Your favorite metal song

White Pearl, Black Oceans by Sonata Arctica. This song was actually my inspiration for my Nano novel this year! Though I didn’t want to use it for prompt #9 just because of the story in the song – it’s not exactly a positive one.

9 – A song that inspires you

This one is a bit out of my usual listening range, but I’m picking Counting Stars by One Republic. I suppose it doesn’t inspire me persay, but for some reason when I listen to it, I feel really productive. I start cleaning or doing homework. It’s like my anti-procrastination song. I’m sure you’ve heard it. If you haven’t, listen to it!
