Top Ten Tuesday (#47)

toptentuesday

HOSTED BY: The Broke and The Bookish
DESCRIPTION:  Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

BLAHBLAHBLAH here’s all the same words you’ve been seeing from me for FOREVER why don’t I just tell you what the theme is this week?!?!?!?!

Because I missed out on this post when it was ACTUALLY the week for it, I decided to go back and do a theme from the past!  Except of course I’m going to put my own twist on it, BECAUSE I WANNA THAT’S WHY!  Also because I know at least two of you who will appreciate the twist better.

(and now I’m singing Journey to the Past from Anastasia… DARN YOU, BRAIN!)

I present to you…

My Top Seven Favorite Music Videos (as of this second right now because my favorites are CONSTANTLY changing)

fishbreak

Not going to lie, mouthful title is a MOUTHFUL! Whew!

There’s just something I LOOOOOVE about this video?  I don’t even know if I can explain it.  Those scenes with the black costumes and the gold skin jewels, though?!  Those are BOMB.  I mean, I’m not gonna lie–Hilary Duff is also bae.  My love for her is nevereeeeeeending.

I don’t think this song would be NEARLY the same had I not listened to it the first time while watching this music video.  I just… SO MUCH of this story is told through the video?  I wouldn’t have gotten the same story just listening to the lyrics.

I LOOOOOVELOVELOVE all the colors–it’s such a stunningly beautiful visual.  The water scenes are also gorgeous, and… Okay, this whole video is gorgeous?! SO MANY KUDOS to the director, seriously.

This is a difficult watch, penguins–but so gorgeously done?  I mean, there’s not much else I can say but that.

I just adoooooooooooore how this song was put together.  Seriously, everything about this video screams gorgeous to me.  I love it so hard.

Again, this song wouldn’t have QUITE the same impact on me if I hadn’t watched the music video to begin with.  The story being told here…it’s so disturbing, and terrifying, and…Gaaaaaah.  If you watch just ONE of these videos, make it this one, okay?

I KNOW, I KNOW, this song and video are SO super dirty, but I LOOOOOOVE them so much?  I don’t even know…I can’t even explain… I HAVE A PROBLEM, okay?!

Penguin2.1

Yes, this IS a different penguin.  I sort of saved over my blank copy of the other header image I use…so I decided to branch out and make a second!  I’ll be switching between the two now. Also, he’s absolutely ADORABLE!

Bookish Soundtracks:


I See Love, by Ryan Cabrera
Book I’d pair this song with:

Touch

Reason:  Because Andrew SEEEEEEEES! Love.  Get it?!  Do you get it?!?!?! Ahahahaha I kill myself.


Still, by Matt Nathanson
Book I’d pair this song with:

Anew (The Archers of Avalon, #1)

Reason:  Well, I mean… Did you listen to the lyrics?  Did you read the blurb for this book?  Because…you should know, if you did.  XD


You Would’ve Kissed Me By Now, by Emma White
Book I’d pair this song with:

The Forbidden Wish

Reason:  I imagine, if this song existed during the times of this book, it would be one Aladdin played on repeat.  Forever repeat.


Other Awesome Songs I’ve Discovered Recently:


Break In, by Halestorm

Favorite Lyric(s):
Yeah, it’s perfectly reckless.
Damn, you leave me defenseless…
so break in
and take everything I have
until there’s nothing left,
until it’s just your voice in my head.

Eyes Wide, by Meadowlark
Book I’d pair this song with:

Grimm House

Reasons: There’s something whimsical and dark about this song, which fits perfectly with the plot of this book!


Come Over, by Kenny Chesney
Book I’d pair this song with:

F*ck Love

Reasons: I can see Helena…or Kit… or both…listening to this song on repeat.  Their love is almost toxic, never quite on the same page… Yes, this song fits.


I’ll be Fine, by Erick Macek
Book I’d pair this song with:

22864466

Reasons:
“I’m one step closer to dying
There’s no use in trying to deny it
My instict tells me, go ahead, just try and fight it
My chapter is closing, something tells me
That I may just like it”


Dust to Dust, by The Civil Wars
Book I’d pair this song with:

Girl of Myth and Legend (The Chosen Saga #1)

Reasons: I’ve seen a lot of people complain about the “insta-love” in this book, but I don’t know that it was LOVE, necessarily.  I think it was more… insta-companionship.  Which fits with this song.


Burning House, by EZA
Book I’d pair this song with:

The Host (The Host, #1)

Reasons: There’s just something…fitting…about this song for Melanie and Wanderer’s stories.  I can’t explain it, so I’m not even going to try–just trust me.

And there you have it!  What do you guys think of my picks this week?  Do you agree or disagree with them?  Let me know in the comments, or link me to your own Thursday Tracks!

Until next time, happy book-ing!
