Music influences

Hi Viewers!
As a former highschool band nerd I really feel like music is the way people can experience someone else's feelings.  I get a lot of my influence from the music I listen to and there has been so much great music running through my headphones lately so I thought I would share some with you all.

"Lights" by Ellie Goulding
The song is from her album titled "Lights" and it is so amazing. Anyone who really likes this song should really get the whole album. I find the melodies following me everywhere I go.

"Wordshaker" by The Saturdays
I love this group so much! A friend got me hooked on them and every song is a great jam. I also really like their songs "Ego" and "karma" a lot but it seems that "Wordshaker" has been in my head lately.

"It's like that" by Outasight
This is yet another American Eagle song. I think it was the summer 2 CD that had this but every time it came on in the store I wanted to replay it. They also have another really great song called "Everything".

"Young Love"  by This Century
This band is so amazing! I met them last year at Freebird Live on Jax beach and they were incredibly nice and genuine.(http://alibrin.blogspot.com/2010/10/this-century.html)  Their personalities make the music all the better. If you like this song you should definitely get the entire album! (The Sound Of Fire) Seriously people this band is AWESOME! There isnt a song that I would press "skip" for on this album.

"We Dont Care" by Lets Get It
You guessed it, American Eagle jam. I really just love this song. It's so great and they have a gree download on their facebook page (what could be better?)

"Cigarettes in the Theater" by Two Door Cinema Club
This is one of my favorite "indie" bands. They have the perfect mix and rock, jam and pop. This is another album where I couldn't bare to skip a song.

"Sleepyhead" by Passion Pit
This song is a little bit older but Passion Pit is a must listen for me when I'm getting crafty. There are not many words that can describe their awesomeness.

These were just a few of my favorite lesser known artists but I have so many other influences that you may or may not have heard of...such as:
"All of the lights" by Kanye West http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAfFfqiYLp0&ob=av2e
"Heavy Metal Lover" by Lady Gaga http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyN5157_Xos&ob=av2e
"Erase me" by Kid Cudi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICaTsTkBPV8&ob=av2e
"Super Bass" by Nicki Minaj http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JipHEz53sU&ob=av2e
"Alligator Sky" by Owl City http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tY5RErnakc&ob=av2e
"Blow" by Ke$ha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFWX0hWCbng&ob=av2e

Stay tuned for more music influences (I've got a ton!) and let me know what your recent music influences are ☼
