#11 Just In Time For Summer…

Yes, it’s another summer playlist. But I’ve put a different spin on it. This list is split into older and newer songs. So, without further delay, here is the Life Observations Summer Playlist!

    Older

  1. Mary Jane’s Last Dance by Tom Petty: Some think it’s about weed, others think it’s about fleeting love; but whatever it’s about it’s a great song.
  2. Let’s Go Crazy by Prince: What’s summer without a Prince song?
  3. Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: A definite ode to the hottest months when “it’s time to sit back and unwind.”
  4. Little Red Corvette by Prince: Yep, it’s another Prince song. On the surface, it’s about a car, but look closer; it’s actually about a woman who loves ‘em and leaves ‘em. Perfect use of analogy.
  5. Cruel Summer by Ace of Base: It’s an ode to being lonely during the summer, but hey, they can’t all be happy! Plus, it’s an awesome cover of the Bananarama song.
  6. California Gurls by Katy Perry: It’s the newest on this half of the list, but I dare you not to sing along.
  7. School’s Out by Alice Cooper: The ultimate anthem for summer break.
  8. Thong Song by Sisqo: Don’t think I have to explain this one!
  9. Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz: A song about wishing to get away. Isn’t that what we all wish we could do during summer?
  10. All I Wanna Do by Sheryl Crow: “All I wanna do is have some fun/I’ve got a feeling I’m not the only one”
    New

  1. The Show Goes On by Lupe Fiasco: One sample from Modest Mouse + one song about sticking out the rough patches = one hot summer song.
  2. Tonight Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae: A song about partying to forget a horrible week. Actually, this is appropriate for anytime of the year.
  3. On the Floor by Jennifer Lopez: I know this was released earlier in the year; but it just sounds summery.
  4. Give Me Everything by Pitbull f/ Ne-Yo: Gets stuck in your head very easily!
  5. Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga: Another amazing summer song by Lady Gaga.
  6. Don’t Wanna Go Home by Jason Derulo: The Perfect summer club song.
  7. Hypnotico by Jennifer Lopez: Yes there’s another JLo song but it’s extremely catchy!
  8. Sunset In July by 311: “Watching you dancing and having the time of your life” Now isn’t that what summer’s about?
  9. I Wanna Go by Britney Spears: It’s Britney doing what she does best.
  10. Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) by Katy Perry: A musical description of an epic summer party.

#10 Well…

What can I say about the MTV Movie Awards… or shall I say the Twilight Awards? I’ll start with the opening skit. Not funny. Opening monologue? Also not very funny. You’d think someone from Saturday Night Live would be funnier. Then Jim Carrey shows up in a blue screen suit, where a projector beamed images of two dogs humping. Pretty funny…at the time.
Anyway, enough about the humor. Why was Justin Bieber up for Best Jaw-Dropping Moment? I’d think there wasn’t anything shocking in that movie. And what was up with the camera men cutting to Emma Watson every time Twilight won? Did they expect her to start cursing or something?
The two truly shocking moments came from Twilight. The first came when Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart won Best Kiss. Pattinson and Stewart debated whether they should kiss before Pattinson said “I think there’s someone who’d appreciate this more,” ran off stage and kissed costar (and fellow nominee) Taylor Lautner. The second moment was when Pattinson, Patrick Dempsey and Chelsea Handler were on stage to present Reese Witherspoon with the Generation Award and Pattinson slips a f-bomb right past the censors. When Reese came up to accept, she let loose with a couple of good zingers: “It’s also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show,” and a great dig at Blake Lively “If you take naked pictures of yourself on your cellphone, you hide your face, people. Hide your face. “
And that’s it. Enjoy the rest of your night!

#8 Alternatives To Bubble Gum Music…

Sick of all the bubble gum music that’s so abundant these days? Well, so am I! So here are some great alternatives I’ve found (warning some of these are older):

-Nirvana: Seriously, who over the age of 20 doesn’t have Nevermind in their music collection?
Recommended songs: Lake Of Fire, Polly, Heart-Shaped Box

-Foo Fighters: Formed by Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain, they’ve quickly become legends in their own right.
Recommended songs: Everlong, Let It Die, Learn To Fly

-Bush: I don’t know why, I just like their music.
Recommended songs: Mouth, Everything Zen, Glycerine

-Eminem: Had to include some rap/hip-hop. No matter your opinion on him, you can’t deny has talent.
Recommended songs: Stan, My Name Is, The Way I Am, Won’t Back Down

-Silversun Pickups: Also had to include some newer stuff. Not as heavy sounding as the rest of the list, until you listen to the lyrics.
Recommended songs: Lazy Eye, Panic Switch, Catch and Release, The Royal We

So that’s all I have for now! Put your suggestions in the comments!

#7 Uh, Really?!

from icanhascheezburger.com

Yes, I realize this is a troll but I feel the need to rip into them so here goes:
1) Go back to school
2) It’s Ron not Jon
3) How is it racist to hire ugly people when ugly isn’t a race?
4) Don’t even get me started on the first part of #2 (why is it the only one numbered, by the way?)
5) You’re confusing Harry Potter with Lord of the Rings (Gandolf? It’s Dumbledore!)
6) It’s set in Britain, duh! (And Pattinson isn’t American either)
7) Again with the wrong names; it’s Hagrid! (points for getting the right book this time though)
8.) Don’t get me started on Twilight …

*puts on Potter fan cap and sits in corner*

Moral of this story is: If you’re going to troll on something, at least make sure you have your facts straight!
