day 3: a song that makes you happy
m-flo is my favorite japanese act. they know how to put together a tight album and are consistent with their quality and their ability to get me to move. the "m-flo loves" collaborations produce some of the best hip-hop/pop i've ever heard anywhere! narrowing it down was very hard but i eventually went with m-flo loves alex's love me after 12am because it features alex who is part of my favorite korean group, clazziquai project. his voice is amazingly mellow and i could listen to it all night long. and then it there is a break in the song that samples from digital love by daft punk, another of my most favorite songs. so i kind of get three in one? it always gets me to smile, full stop, hands up, heart light. but now i'm second guessing myself. should i have chosen digital love instead?
the original studio version is not in english but i love the life version from the cosmicolor tour.

day 02: Your least favorite song
least favorite as in from all the songs i like the one i like the least? least favorite as in from all my favorites which one is on the bottom? least favorite as in a song i do not like? if that's the case i refuse your ambiguous definitions meme! there is no way in hell i'm going to post my heart will go on in this journal!
i'm choosing my least favorite of all my favorite songs.
coming up with a list of favorite songs from multiple, often disparate, genres and narrowing it down to the top 25 took forever, and yes i am crazy but never fear, i manage it well most days! after this rather thorough cull, it is decided. my least favorite song is fireworks by animal collective. there's not much i can say about animal collective. you either like them or you hate them as the sonic explosion of awesome, innovation, strange, and repetition isn't for everyone. but i heard who could win a rabbit and was hit hard. they are for me.
man, it passes right by me it's behind me, now it's gone
i can't lift you up cause my mind is tired, it's family beaches that i desire
that sacred night where we watched the fireworks
they frightened the babies and you know they've got two flashing eyes
and if they are color blind, they make me feel, that you're only what i see sometimes
