OMG, fucking Flame Levithian for the weekly. Someone at Blizzard has a sick sense of humor.

Moving on, Day 3 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge--my favorite song. Oh gods, this is going to suck.

I can't limit it to one song. I know that's a bit of a cliche answer and all that, but I honestly can't do it. But I can narrow it down to one album...kinda. A month or so ago I bought 'This Delicate Thing We've Made' by Darren Hayes off of Amazon's mp3 service (pretty awesome and a tiny bit cheaper than itunes as well). I have been a fan of his for years, since his Savage Garden days--they were the first concert I attended when I was 13. It's a case of, if he wasn't married to a bloke, I'd go and have his babies type of thing.

With that said, there's a few songs off the album that I could list as my favorites. These are ones that I don't mind putting on repeat, the ones I learn the words to in a few days, the ones Steve hates (he's not much of a fan, he's more an 80s-type).

This is the second song off the album, 'Who Would of Thought'. This one moves me more than any other song on the album--it's difficult to describe. It's one of those cases where to me, I wish I had been able to write something like this, or to express myself in this way. I guess it could be described as a song of lost love, or unrequited love, forbidden love--whatever really. And it could apply to almost everyone's life, since who hasn't had one of those types (or all of those types) of love in their life before?


'Casey'. Darren Hayes talks about how he romanticizes his past, and how he misses it. I think this song is one of many (maybe in the vein of Crush [1980 Me]) that address that longing. I just like it, I don't know why.


'Step Into the Light'. The music video for this song fits the song quite well, and it's one of those pseudo dance track type of songs I can put on repeat and listen to for hours while playing WoW.


'On the Verge of Something Wonderful'. One of those songs I listen to when I'm in a funk, since it's not emo and moody and such. Slightly random video in some respects, but very Darren Hayes I think.


Other songs on the album that are my favorites are 'The Sun is Always Blinding Me', 'Lucky Town', 'A Hundred Challenging Things a Boy Can Do' and 'Listen All You People'. Awesome fucking album, and it makes me excited to see what he's putting out for 2011--and since I live in the UK, I would pee myself if I ever got to see one of his concerts. But I probably won't :( But I can dream anyway.
