For some random reason I’ve really gotten into Taylor Swift lately, which is awkward since I like Kanye West a lot too, so I decided to dedicate today’s Music Monday to her. I can’t really relate to her lyrics but I still love her songs! On her Red album, I’d have to say my favorite songs are “Red,” “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and “Say Say Say.”
My favorite album by Taylor is “Fearless” and my favorite song of all time from her is “Love Story.” The “Love Story” video forever remains her best and it was the first song I heard by Taylor and made me discover her. And after hearing her on the radio yesterday, I decided to become a fully-fledged fan. Yes, I’m that quick to pick things up.

So for the past two days everyone and their mom has been tweeting, Instagraming, and tattooing about getting Lollapalooza tickets. Personally I couldn’t get myself to buy the tickets because it was so much money for something I didn’t even know who was playing. The lineup hasn’t been announced so I wouldn’t even know if I liked the people or not. Also, outdoor festivals creep me out.
That being said, today a rumored lineup list appeared on the Internet and got me excited to say the least. It has Lana Del Rey, Azealia Banks, and other cool artists were on the list. If that’s the case, I might buy a one day pass just to see Lana and Azealia since all the other tickets were sold out.
Here’s Lana’s newest video just to get myself in the mood:

I’ve been going through weird music phases, and one of them is being awkwardly obsessed with Michael Bublé lately. I just got his Christmas album and I’ve been listening to it nonstop, which is weird because I usually don’t like to listen to Christmas music. My favorite songs by him are “Cry Me a River” and “Haven’t Met You Yet.” Whenever I listen to “Haven’t Met You Yet” I always want to prance around a grocery store since he does it in the music video.
Speaking of Christmas, I cannot wait to go home for the holidays. Not because I’m excited for Christmas itself, but I’m just excited to be done with the semester! I hate all the attention, shocking I know, that comes from giving and receiving presents, which is why I always just ask for money! I especially just hate the cold! Hopefully it is not a white Christmas this year! Bah humbug!
I’ve been going through a weird phase lately where I’ve been listening to alternative music. So it has been nothing but Coldplay, Muse, and Lana Del Rey for me! But starting yesterday I’ve been listening to Muse on repeat. Evidently they’ve been around since the 90s but I just discovered them a few years ago at the VMAs. And I’ve definitely been missing out! I love their music!
The song by them I’m currently loving is called “Madness,” which is on their most recent album. It reminds me of a modern take on Queen or Coldplay meets anthemic rock. The music video for the song is very interesting with technicolor lights, riot police, and a couple in a subway fighting. Basically everything I’ve ever wanted in a music video.
