Sam Tsui – Pompeii

Lately I’ve been listening a lot to covers, and one that I instantly fell in love with was Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider’s cover of Pompeii. I’ve never really liked the original but this is really touching and goes straight to my heart. I don’t have much more to say about it, just that I’m 100% in love with it and have been listening to it on repeat for the past two days. It’s beautiful.

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing’s changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You’ve been here before?

McBusted – Air Guitar

For a few years ago, when I was around 15, I think, one of my best friends was a bit obsessed with a band called McFly. We used to tease her a lot, not because of the band itself but because of the name of it sounded like a hamburger, we even made a commercial once, from a McDonalds in our town with the slogan “McFly – Now with 100% Swedish fly meat” which we later on had in a movie we made for English class at school.

I listened to them now and then as well, mainly because my sister loved them and they had quite a few songs that I really liked.

Sometime last year I realised that hey, McFly and Busted merged into a whole new band, when the hell did that happen? I was so confused, but I couldn’t help being curious, so I checked them out, and when they released their new CD I was hooked, and now I’m almost one of their fangirls. I’m not as obsessed with them as with Tokio Hotel, but I must say that their latest CD doesn’t have a single song I don’t like on it.

So the first “song of the day” on my new blog will be one of my favourite songs, Air Guitar from McBusted’s new album. It’s silly, it’s catchy and it never fails to bring my mood up.
