As this is my final exam week, what I need is a playlist to pump me up and get me through the last stretch of the semester. Biology and Chemistry exams plus a few last minutes papers, I’m going to need all the motivation I can get to finish strong. I hope this playlist inspires all of you too.
If this is also your finals week, May the odds be ever in your favour.
12.12.16 Playlist – Pumped Up Edition
- The One (English version) – Babymetal
- “From Now On We Are Enemies” – Fall Out Boy

Additionally, I plan on giving out my Playlist for the Week.
PotW will follow a simple format of being 7 songs from seven different artists, thus giving my readers a song to binge-listen to each day of the week. I may make a theme for the week but the songs are all going to be based on my mood for the week.
This week, due to it being the first week where snow has actually stuck to the ground here in Wisconsin, I will be making a playlist of songs to chill out to.
12.05.16 Playlist – Chill Out Edition
- Circadian Rhythm – Silversun Pickups
- Four Walls (The Ballad of Perry Smith) – Bastille
- Closer – The Chainsmokers (ft. Halsey)
- We’ve Been Had – The Walkmen
- Living for Sunday – Don’t Call it a Comeback
- America’s Suitehearts (Acoustic) – Fall Out Boy
- Banner (Acoustic) – LIGHTS
For your convenience, I will be posting all the songs I pick in a weekly YouTube playlist.
Enjoy your chill playlist for the week!
Since music is such a big part of my life I thought my first real blog post should be on my taste in such. Overall I listen to anything that crosses my way with a guitar in it. From acoustic covers of Fall Out Boy songs on YouTube to BabyMetal (praise be the Megistune), I definitely have a broad spectrum of genres I enjoy.
Recently, two bands have been filling my head with lyrics to sing at the worst of times. The first of which being a small band out of Indiana called Don’t Call It A Comeback
With three albums released on iTunes in 2011, 2013, and 2015, the band shows signs of making it big. When I use the term of “making it big” however, I mean falling into the machine of making music according to the label’s taste. Many great bands have started out with their own amazing sound but make it big and start throwing together Standard Bassline A with Standard Melody C. DCIAC have found the happy medium of being large enough to get their music out there, without having a label tie them down.
Something Worth Fighting For, 2011
Telescopes – EP, 2013
Don’t Call It a Comeback, 2015
Their most recent self-titled album is always on my second monitor, ready to be played on a whim (or simple voice command to Cortana when I get home from classes). With some electronica mixed with more traditional Guitar/Bass/Drum/Voice songs, the album hits on all my musical urges within the 11 tracks on the disk. The lyrics can be quite simple party themes at times (Better Off Alone), but other songs like Living for Sunday hit home with me.
Overall, an excellent set of musicians who deserve to be heard by more people. If you need some good music for any mood, Don’t Call It A Comeback has what you need.
