Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! I am back again and this time for the Top Ten Songs for March! I know I didn’t do it for February because my computer crapped out during the end of February and now it’s back so I decided to kind of loop in some of the songs in due to how short February is and didn’t listen to I Heart Radio as much as this month so let’s see what I got!
10. “Joy Ride” by There for Tomorrow: First is a band from my past and they are known as There For Tomorrow. They are a band from here in Orlando and they were very big in the mid-2000s and they got beally big when of their songs got used for the first Ben 10 Alien Force live-action movie which was known as “A Little Faster” but the song is on my list this month is called “The Joy Ride” which I didn’t know they made any newer music until I found them on I Heart Radio. They sound so different with how their music changed which it does kind of have their old sound from “Pages” but the singer sounds slightly higher than back then. I am not sure if they switched singers but he sounds very good. This is a really good traveling song and it also had me listen to this reminded me of the book Forsaken Skies because it deals with a lot of space travel if you read my review on that book a few posts ago. If not, you can still read it!
9. “Girl All the Bad Guys Want” by. Bowling for Soup: This didn’t quite shown up on I Heart Radio but I started listening to it again and that is “Girl all the Bad Guys Want” which is the song and only song I really like by Bowling for Soup! I always feel like this song describes me due to how some of the “bad” guys seem to magnetize towards me during high school especially the ones that picked on me and that creepy childhood friend that bores the crap out of me. (I ended that friendship) Especially that friend because I’m with a guy I really like but one thing I don’t match that lyric is the wrestling and drug bits but hey I do like singers that are mad at their cat in their songs.
8. “Miss Murder” by. AFI: I guess you were wondering where this might be but this appeared on my I Heart Radio lists with Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Panic! At the Disco and that is “Miss Murder” by AFI. I Heart Radio does have good taste and I can’t blame them! I do sing along with it time to time. I think I even sang along when I was hold on the phone with Hot Topic once. Anyways, this does take me back to my earlier days of being a slight punkish despite listening to pop but hey they are still an awesome band and would love to take a chance singing this onRock Band since Gondras has it on his.
7. “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World: Oh yes! We’re going back to 1999 with this one and that is Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle!” I can’t help it that one of the radio stations in town also plays this as a nice throw back to the 90’s and I always think back to one cover of this performed. Okay, there is an event called Red Hot & Boom that is the day before July 4th every year here in Orlando and one year they had We The Kings which is another alternative band that was pretty good and then they did this song. I knew what it was by the first few bars and went “WHOO!” Nobody in the entire park didn’t do it along with me and this was around the time The Game was existing and yelled in my area of sitting “You all lost the game!” No reaction either. The crowd didn’t start rocking until middle of the song which is kind of fail when everyone knows this song and even do it on Rock Band. I think I got most of the lyrics right before I do this on it again since I think I got a 75 trying to sing it but the last time I hung out with the girls and riding in the car with Tobi and Vivi, I sang along with this one when it came up. Rock Band you’re next!
6. “The Enemy: by Sevendust: Oh yes! The band that got me into metal is on this list and that is Sevendust! I wasn’t really into metal when I was in high school until I heard these guys on a just music channel that played one of their other songs and liked them. I got the Seasons album with this song and that is “Enemy.” I bet you’re wondering why Sevendust? I don’t know…it just happened out of nowhere and I thought they had really good music for someone from Orlando. I would susggest seeing them live since they tend to do music from their older albums over the newer ones which I don’t mind at all! I was happy they did this one during their Earth Day Birthday 2015 set when they replaced Bush. Now they are headliners for it this year in case if you’re going. Enjoy!
5. “Only Hope” by. Mandy Moore: Next is a pop song and that is by Mandy Moore. I kind of blame it on Mary E. McGlynn…well her interview since she is directing the new Tangled animated series and I mentioned Mandy Moore and this song came to mind. I Heart tend to play “When Will My Day Begin” from Tangled but I was glad to find this one because it came from the movie, A Walk to Remember. If you guys seen my Fifty Random Facts video over on our YouTUbe, I mentioned that this movie was the ONLY movie that made me cry more than the book! The music from that movie is great especially this song which is from the part with the play which is different from the book. This is one movie I did prefer it over the book and they used Mandy’s talent very well both in acting and singing since this was the first movie I saw her in. I still remember her as the pop singer starting out in 1999 and still can hold those notes!
4. “What Have You Done?” by. Within Temptation: Next is a song that has been popping tons on I Heart and that is by Within Temptation known as “What Have You Done.” I haven’t heard of these guys until I heard them on the Coheed and Cambria playlist when I heard the app a while back and glad that I found their actual playlist. I like these guys because of their epic orchestra sounding songs with metal. That is one part of metal I do like is more of the orchestraic songs and Within Temptation does it very well! This one does use their male singer and female lead as a duet kind of like Evanescence did with the guy from Seether or is it from some other band in “Bring Me to Life.”
3. “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars: Hey! Don’t blame it on me for this one since I have a feleing you’re thinking, “What the heck Mari? Why this one?” I kind of blame it on Gondras since he wanted me to find this on I Heart all thanks to him hearing it before me and wanted me to listen to it. I did find Bruno Mars and he accidentally hit “Favorite” as the playlist started playing. This song did appear a lot on my Faves List during February and man it’s catchy! It also did appear in Todd In the Shadows’ top list for last year despite it releasing this year in January. Anyways, as said it’s very catchy las”Uptown Funk.” I think anyone who is Catholic might use the #blessed if they hadn’t since you do hear it in the song. I can imagine this being in Rock Band if they hadn’t already put it in. Conventions, I think you will be hearing this playing in your game rooms!
2. “Smiling in Your Sleep” by Silverstein: Yes, back to metal and the screaming kind! I have been a fan of this one called Silverstein all thanks to a song called “My Heroine” if I got it right. I never thought I would hear these guys again but on I Heart Radio and this got me to liking them again. I like the right aamunt of screaming and how the chorus switches between lyrics and screams does have a nice rhythm. I think I heard someone trying to sing this song in the room next door to Panel Room 1 during Omni Day 1 abd had a hard time unless I am mistaken. Well, I do hit the screams in “Demons” when Soul Switch performs it everytime despite it killing my voice. Oh well, that is my number 2!
1. “Emperor’s New Clothes” by Panic! At the Disco: The final song on this list is by Panic! At the Disco and it’s called “Emperor’s New Clothes!” This was supposed to be number one on last month’s list but since this month would make up for that, I can’t help it but this song does get into your head! During that Anime in Western Literature panel from Matsuri, they shown an AMV that was put to the Count of Monte Cristo that used this song and it was perfect actually! When you listen to the cchorus it does talk about taking back a crown and the bridge does use that old “Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers” rhyme and it fits with the beat! Plus, this song is supposed to be asequel to the song “This Is Gospel” especially with the video due to how you do hear the end of “This is Gospel” at the start because of how is reborn as a demon in underworldwhich I saw the making of this video. I did remember Kat Sketch talking about this song in one of her old Favorites videos and how she wants to do a makeup look but will take a lot of prosthetic makeup. Well, enjoy the video!
That is it for this month’s list! April will be filled with a few more! Will it include some of the Orlando Overdrive artists since we will be doing press work for it? You will see next month!
What is next for Nerdy Shique Universe? Another Cosmetic Controversy which you guys should be thanking Kat Von D for the idea. Until next time!
