Sorry for the delay on this post, but I (Zack) have had a crazy night and have been trying to put together a detailed concert review as well, so this comes a day late. Anyways, our theme last week was Under the Sea, and it seemed to be a hit with the readers!!! This week’s theme is “Singing in the Shower.” We posted songs we can’t get out of our head. Songs that we can’t help but sing while cleaning ourselves from the shame of the night before. Here are our choices for “Singing in the Shower.”
The Honor System – I Want Candy
I don’t really sing in the shower (far too scared that someone may hear), however I do sing a lot in the car when I am alone. This is one of my favorite songs to rock out / sing along to. Interesting Fact: The day I figured out how to play this on guitar is the day I declare my life to be a pretty big success.
Ratatat – Seventeen Years
I chose this song because it’s features dance-rock synths doing what they do best: rock. This song is unbelievably catchy, and is the perfect song for when you are lathering up in the shower.
Daft Punk – Face to Face
One of Daft Punks underrated and unnoticed tracks. I love this one to death and can’t get it out of my head, especially when I’m all soapy and sudsy. I feel like Mr. Ferdlow, named repeatedly in the song, is a metaphor that can only be understood in the shower.
The Dell Vikings – Come Go With Me
I used to listen to this song all the time in the car with my BFF/Second cousin Chris Rowe. When I was younger, I really only listened to oldies, motown, doowop, and things of that nature, as my dad and Chris’s day were big into those genres. This song may have been made before I was born, but that doesn’t mean I can’t completely rock out to it. The dum-dums are just the perfect words for shower singing, or singing in any situation.
Ted Leo & the Pharmacists – Little Dawn
(Note: Adrian’s description was written by Zack since his computer is messed up.) I know we post way too much Ted Leo, but we just can’t get enough. This song brings you in from the fast-paced guitars in the beginning to the catchy, easily singable lyrics, making for a perfect shower song.
Again, sorry for the delay on this. We are taking suggestions for themes, so send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want your theme used.
