Last night I took Jenny to see the premiere of Catching Fire. My post title? Could refer to me or her honestly. She’s happy. She was so excited to go to the premiere.
And I was happy she still wants to do things like this with me. And with my wonderful sister-in-law who joined us for the fun night. I feel like a cool mom on nights like this. And even happier that we were able to see the premiere at 8:00 instead of the usual midnight premiere. We enjoyed the movie, especially Jenny because she’s completely in love with Peeta.
To celebrate her happiness, I’m sharing a list she randomly sent me a couple days ago of the best songs in the Top 100 on iTunes right now, alone with her commentary (and mine in italics), because it’s too fun to not share.
1. Midnight Memories by One Direction
One Direction themselves are great and this song has a great beat. This song is PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I’ll admit I kind of want to get into One Direction.)
2. Diana by One Direction
Once again, it’s One Direction. I shouldn’t have to say anymore.
3. The Monster by Eminem featuring Rihanna
I am not a big fan of the rap part of the song but I really love the chorus.
4. Royals by Lorde
Royals + Lorde’s Voice= Great Song
5. Counting Stars By OneRepublic
I love this song. I like most songs by OneRepublic but the lyrics in this are just great.
6. Let Her Go by Passenger
The singing in this is beautiful plus the message is really pretty.
7. Demons by Imagine Dragons
I love most Imagine Dragon songs but this one may be my favorite.
8. Wake Me Up by Avicci
I didn’t like it originally but now I really like it.
9. Roar by Katy Perry
This song has a great message and it’s KATY PERRY. (I kind of love this one too.)
10. Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus
We did a parody of this song in Social Studies that we had to perform in front of the class so this song just holds some memories. (This comment really makes me smile.)
11. Say Something by A Great Big World
I heard this for the first time during class when my friend played it as part of a project and it still makes me cry.
12. Last Christmas by Arianna Grande
I love this song every time there is another version of it but I will always remember the first time I heard it by Ashley Tisdale.
13. Applause by Lady Gaga
Kinda odd verses but the chorus is good.
14. Sweater Weather by The Neighborhood
I just like when it holds out cold during the chorus.
15. Dark Horse by Katy Perry
I love her voice so I love this song. Simple.
16. Stay the Night by Zedd featuring Hayley Williams
This was kind of annoying at first but overtime it has grown on me.
17. Brave by Sara Bareilles
This song is inspirational and Sara Bareilles is absolutely brilliant.
18. Burn by Ellie Goulding
I like Ellie Goulding’s voice.
19. The Fox by Ylvis
This is one of the weirdest songs ever. Just listen to the lyrics.
20. Still Into You by Paramore
Paramore is great and I really love the line about butterflies. (That’s my favorite part of this song too.)
21. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons
Radioactive is on the soundtrack for The Host AND is a great song so………….
22. Wasting All Theses Tears by Cassadee Pope
Cassadee Pope is amazing and can only make amazing music.
23. Waiting For Superman by Daughtry
Daughtry always has the prettiest songs. (Um, no.)
24. Holy Grail by JAY Z featuring Justin Timberlake
I only like (love) the part where Justin Timberlake is singing.
25. Hold On by Colbie Caillat
Colbie Caillat has got such calm music that you can just sit there and listen to for hours.
26. We Remain by Christina Aguilera
This is a powerful song from the CATCHING FIRE soundtrack. (I am seeing CATCHING FIRE when it comes out tomorrow!!!!!! (eeeeeeeeeekkkk)) (Obviously she wrote this before we went to the movie.)
27. My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark by Fall Out Boy
It’s weird but good. (I’m on fi-ERRRRR.)
28. Team by Lorde
Lorde has a pretty voice plus this is a great song.
29. Safe and Sound by Capital Cities
I didn’t like this at first because it has the same title as the Taylor Swift song from THE HUNGER GAMES but I have finally admitted it is a good song.
30. Gorilla by Bruno Mars
I have heard so many times that I actually like it now even though it is complete insanity. (But my girls singing this one in the car is a little much.)
31. Replay By Zendaya
32. Clarity by Jacquie Lee
I love the original and this person has got such a beautiful voice.
33. Summertime Sadness by Lana Del Rey
It is slow and a little depressing yet catchy and pretty.
34. Rough Water by Travie McCoy featuring Jason Mraz
I have no idea how it is #99 on the chart considering it is an absolutely amazing song. I mean really, who makes that list?!?!?!?!?
That’s it. Now you know about cool music, if you didn’t already. I didn’t. Happy Friday!
Linking up with #iPPP since I included that phone picture of happy Jenny:
