15 Songs I've Been Listening To Lately (Non-Goth Version)

With all the time I spent on the road I certainly had time to listen to a lot of music! I want to do a Goth-Friendly version of this too, but I'm going to start of with some of the decidedly 'Not Goth' things I've been listening to over these past couple of weeks. Besides, as far as Goth Music goes we all have a pretty good idea of the bands available to us...doing this playlist first means I might just have a chance of mentioning songs you guys don't already listen to.

These Boots Are Made For Walking- Nancy Sinatra

This one is completely the fault of Austin Powers. We've been killing boredom by watching older comedies on our tiny TV and this song is ridiculously hard to get out of your head.

For Your Entertainment- Adam Lambert

For a multitude of reasons. He was fantastic on American Idol, he's probably the only modern pop artist I listen to, he's attractive and extremely decorative, and to be honest this video is really hot.

Movie Music From Cloud Atlas

The book and movie ripped apart my heart and apparently I'm masochistic enough to continue listening to the music despite the intense sadness that accompanies it... This book is one of my favorites though, and I'll be reviewing the movie at some point. I think the music really did the story justice.

Something in My House- Dead or Alive

If I'm going to be completely honest, I've been listening to Spin me Right Round (Like a Record) just as much as this one, but I'm going to pick the slightly less commercialized one and continue to wonder how Pete Burns was so pretty back in the day.

Windmills of Your Mind- Dusty Springfield

I'm fairly certain I heard this song while watching Breakfast on Pluto (yet another movie I have to review for several reasons). Wherever I heard it, I like to sit around and listen to it when I'm trying to relax.

Me and My Arrow- Harry Nilsson

Well this song is...strange. I'm not even sure why I like it, but I do. I think it's another one I got from Breakfast on Pluto, which has a very quirky soundtrack.

Walking on Air- Kerli

I think this may be the only Kerli song I have on my Ipod. I'm not really a fan of hers. I suppose I could technically put this under the upcoming Goth-friendly playlist, but since the term used around her is typically 'bubble-goth' I think I'll leave it here. I have enough songs for the other playlist as it is.

Teardrop- Massive Attack

This one is completely my dad's fault. He loves House music and other electronic related genres so a few things like Massive Attack and Thievery Corporation have rubbed off on me.

Torch- Soft Cell

I've been listening to Soft Cell a lot in general lately so it took a while to pick just one. Tainted Love while great, has been overplayed to death. This is probably the song I've been listening to most.

All the Same to Me- Anya Marina

I used to listen to this song all the time, even before I got into Goth fashion and music. I hadn't heard it for a couple years, but once it came back on I started listening to it frequently again. I just love her voice.

Feel Good Inc. - Gorillaz

Yet another sing I picked up from my dad. I still remember him showing me the wacky music video when I was a kid.

The Bottom- Sick Puppies

I really like almost all the songs from this group, especially the ones on the Tri-polar album, but I think The Bottom is one of my favorites. It reminds me of...zombies. Yes definitely zombies.


 Hotel California- The Eagles

I love Classic Rock. I don't have a lot on my Ipod, because it's easy to just turn to a classic rock station and I'll normally like most of what's playing. Hotel California is just one of those songs that I will never stop liking.

Sinful Love- Blue Oyster Cult

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love Blue Oyster Cult. They're one of my absolute favorite non-goth bands along with David Bowie and Depeche Mode. I could hardly pick which song to put up here because Agents of Fortune is so fantastic. Tenderloin and Tattoo Vampire were very close contenders.

Well that ended up being a lot more scrolling then I planned for....oops? Well I hope you found at least one song that you liked/haven't already listened to.

As far as my personal life goes, things have been pretty good. We've bought a house so we'll be moving into it in a couple weeks. The downtown area is pretty cool. I've already located the various coffee shops, records stores, and thrift shops, of course. And their library is three stories so I'm still squealing about that. My birthday was a few days ago and I wasn't expecting anything until we got a house, but lo and behold my family is fantastic and they got me an electric guitar. I can't contain my glee and I can't wait to start learning how to play.


  1. You have great taste in music,lil princess- except for the Eagles, blech! Moving to a new city sounds very, very exciting! I wish I could move and explore a new scene, but it gets harder as you get older. Nancy Sinatra and that old-swinging-country-chic-badass-scene is the absolute best. Check out the song "Harper Valley PTA" by Jeannie C. Riley.

    1. HEY. I might not like the Eagles in general, but that song is fabulous :P I'll check out that song right away though ^^ Thanks! :)

  2. I know there will be many difficulties and challenges but I am determined to do it. If it does not succeed then it will be a lesson for me as well
