A while ago, I wandered around The Broke and The Bookish book blog. This particular blog is famous for its weekly meme, Top Ten Tuesday, which bookish people fervently participates in. With that in mind, I decided to check the topics being discussed in the following weeks and only to be surprised that the topic for this week is something that I actually would love to talk about. Then and there, I immediately thought of still crafting a blog post for it even though Tuesday had already passed. Here’s the topic for September 20, yesterday:
All About Audio freebie -- aka top ten audiobooks you should listen to, 10 books I want to listen to on audio,10 bands you should check out, 10 podcasts you should be listening to, 10 of my all time favorite albums, 10 songs I love, really whatever you can come up with.
I tweaked this prompt and created this... Hope you'll enjoy this!
Top Ten Albums that I could listen to FOREVER
(I will randomly name some albums that I have in my playlist for quite a long time yet I still listen to up until now.)
1. Modern Minds and Pastimes by The Click Five
Remember The Click Five's hit song Jenny? Or the catchy happy birthday song, Happy Birthday? Or the mellow, Empty? Those songs actually belong to The Click Five's second album yet a first for their new vocalist, Kyle Patrick. During the year this album was released, I went gaga over them and if I remember correctly I went pretty active on Myspace because of them. There was something about Kyle's voice that drew me in and add in their awesome and catchy songs. I'm sold. My favorite song out of this album (which sadly wasn't released as a single) is I'm Getting Over You. Headlight Disco and When I'm Gone were my jam too!

2. Riot! by Paramore
Riot! was the album where I feel like Paramore is at its peak. Hayley's killer voice, Zac's drum skills and Josh & Jeremy's guitar rifts were the key points that gave Paramore its definitive sound. With those things, you'll immediately know if it is Paramore that you're listening to. Paramore is Paramore and no other band can recreate the magic that they have.
In my opinion, they seriously killed this album and offered their fans lots of great materials to listen and sing-along to. All songs have a single material to it and has that recall factor. After all these years, songs from Riot! are still stuck in my head and I could gladly sing it at the top of my head. My favorites from this album are: Misery Business, CrushCrushCrush, That's What You Get, Born for This, Hallelujah and When It Rains.
