The What A Babe Team talks about their current music choices.
Four Year Strong is one of the best bands in the whole world. -Caitie
I have been listening to A Rocket To The Moon this week. They are definitely one of my favorite bands, musically, and personality wise, some of my favorite people. One of my favorite songs is definitely “Sometimes”. I can’t explain how much I love that song. Also, “No One Will Ever Get Hurt”. I think I could listen to those two songs over and over for an entire day and still not get tired of them! I just checked the number of plays, and they’re 3 and 4 from ARTTM. 1 is “Mr. Right”, and 2 is the piano version of “Like We Used To” from the Deluxe version of their album On Your Side. “Not A Second To Waste” just came on my iTunes and I’m reminded of how I love this as well. I just can’t get enough of A Rocket To The Moon! -Kim
A band that has been all up in my ears recently, is this band from Japan called SuG. Seriously, all my friends and personal tumblr followers can vouch; they’re seriously all I talk about. I’ve been listening to mostly their newer stuff and random old songs over the past couple months, but about two weeks ago I went on a huge downloading spree, put their discography in order in a playlist (only slightly obsessive), and gave it a good listen. Holy shit, you guys, they are so awesome.
Okay, but seriously, they’re really good. Listening through their music from oldest to newest, I could really hear the growth, although they can’t really seem to stick with one music style, and go back in forth between harder songs, catchy pop songs, and an infusion of both. Most of their songs seem to have really light themes to the lyrics (correct me if I’m wrong, SuG fans), too, which I personally like.
I’m going to be completely honest with our dear followers, the first thing that drew me into this band was their terrible English song titles and their eyesore of an album cover. Like, it was so bad that I needed to have a listen to figure out if they were literally talking about those things in their songs. I was hesitant at first, but I quickly fell in love with their music and, to a point, the members themselves. That’s right, they not only make awesome music, but the members, Takeru, Masato, Yuji, Chiyu, and Shinpei, are absolutely adorable, personality-wise and physical appearance-wise. Watching their personally edits for their newest single/music video, “Toy Soldier”, I was seriously cracking up or “aww”ing the entire time, even though I wasn’t buying for a second that Chiyu and Masato were really playing their instruments. -Elyssa
