It’s that time again, the last Thursday of the month, the time that Jana and Erin bring you a playlist that usually has a theme with a twist. This month, we are talking about songs that may surprise you to find out we are fans.
If you ask either of us about our favorite music, we are going to tell you that we are rock chicks, rock ‘n’ roll fans through and through. Then, we come up with lists like this, and we realize that we actually have quite eclectic tastes, and we assume others should know this already.
But, let’s share ten songs that we love, and they may surprise you:
Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis – (from Erin) – It’s pretty obvious that she is heavily influenced by Mariah Carey, and both Jana and I despise Mariah Carey music…but I like this song so much that it is on my work playlist, and I hear it probably four or five times a day.
Everyday by Buddy Holly – Actually, Jana said “(p)retty much anything by Buddy Holly. I fucking love him.” So, Everyday it is. He is considered a pioneer of rock’n’roll, so it may not be that surprising after all. But, 1950s rock is not exactly what you’d expect from us.
Lose Yourself by Eminem – Rap. Rap isn’t something you’d necessarily expect from us either, but damn, this is a solid song.
Ride Wit Me by Nelly – What? More rap? Some of these crossover rap songs make it into the pop charts because they are just too catchy to look past. Nelly figured that out with a number of his songs. Jana and Erin are guilty for falling for some of those catchy-pop ploys.
It may not surprise you for Erin to list a country song, after all, she’s from Texas. But, Long Island native/Delaware dwelling Jana naming a super-twang-infused country song? That should surprise you…
Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares) by Travis Tritt
Hollywood by Michael Buble – He’s cheesy, and his music is not at the top of most of our playlists. But, hey, we like what we like, and won’t feel guilty about it.
What songs would we be surprised that you love? Are you surprised by any of these??
