FULL CREDIT goes to Channel Hand for the idea of this post.
I read her post last week and I really liked it, so I wanted to make one similar.
So, my favorite songs on my playlist. This was a hard topic because I have over 5h 58m of time on this playlist, with over 200 songs. So, it was hard choosing only a few. But starting from the least favorite to the most favorite here they are.
So, while going through my playlist, I found over thirty songs that I love. It hurt, but I didn’t want to make this post an hour long to read, so I’ve regrettably narrowed it down to about 8 out of 30 songs. I apologize ahead of time for how long this post might take.
(P.S. I’ve left out Origami Angel in this list because They would dominate.)
Starting with #8: “DNA Scam” “Fail Better, Heal Faster”
DNA Scam was released Aug 31st, 2017. I’ve had it in my playlist sense early 2020. I don’t know much about the band, and I don’t have a special connection to them or anything. But I really like the instruments in this song. I Find the Drums especially good. The Lyrics are also very interesting.
I think I could say that my taste in music could be defined in this song. The Indie-Rock feel. The sound of the guitar, drums, vocals, everything about this song screams, Indie-Rock. And for those that don’t know, Indie-Rock is basically Just a Rock band that isn’t widely known. And I really like the lyrics in Indie-Rock because they’re always meaning full. They write about experiences or events, or people.
Or something as simple as Blueberry Pancakes.
Next in Line is #7 is “At Doom’s Gate” “Andrey Avkhimovich”
This one is interesting because, it’s from a popular game called “DOOM 64x”.
There are no lyrics it’s just instrumental metal. A while back I got into a loop with this song, and I listened to it for my first two or three weeks here at MSA.
I’m a big fan of the DOOM games. The music is always intense too. It’s pretty much all “Final Boss” music.
Coming up next as #6 is “Blueberry Pancakes” by “The Feelers”.
This song is pretty interesting. It’s a little higher on the list because I really enjoy the Instruments in this song. Not to mention that the album cover is really cool. The Vocalist has a really cool voice, aswell. This song is sort of crude if you listen to the lyrics, but other than that it’s really good. The lyrics are interesting to say the least. I won’t spend too much time on this one because I’ve got a lot of songs to get through.
The next song #5 “Cytoplasm” by “The Doozers”.
This song was really good, it came out in Jan 12th, 2019.
The thing I like most about this song is the guitar. The Vocalist has a nice voice, Aswell. The lyrics are decent Aswell. I added this song to my playlist back in 2020 I think, so I’ve been listening to it for a while now. The cover is also sort of funny. I’m not very familiar with the band though. I think this is the only song I’ve heard from the Doozers.

The thing I like most about this song is the guitar. The Vocalist has a nice voice, and the lyrics are decent as well. now. The cover is also sort of funny. I’m not very familiar with the band though.
The Next song being #4 is “Mystery Girl” “Housecall.”
I really enjoy this song every time it comes on. I feel like I’m saying this for every song on this list, but the instruments and vocals are really impressive. For most indie-rock songs I’d say that drums are a very important part. In this song, the drums are faint but there. The bass is fairly noticeable, but I think it relies heavily on the guitar and vocalist. And that’s not a problem because they do it so well. Romantic Indie-rock songs are the best, because they always (or most of the time) come from the heart. They’re always meaningful. And I like to imagine who the artist wrote the song for.
Next in line as #3 “2010″ by “The Keystones”
The Keystones are an interesting band. I’ve listened to a few of their songs, and I want to become more familiar with them, but this is one of my favorites. I’m not a good guitarist, I’m quite the opposite, but this song inspired a little thing I came up with on my electric guitar. I’ve had this song on my playlist for at least two years, I think. And that’s why it places 3rd on my list. I think that the album cover seems funny, it looks like a Polaroid, and I think that was supposed to emphasize the “2010” feeling. But this song is so high on the list because of its guitar and drums. In my opinion, I think Guitar, Drums, and Bass, are the three elements that make up an Indie-Rock band. And each of those elements are in this song. The drums are amazing.
The Vocalist in this is also really good.
Two more to go. Coming up as #2 “Punk Tactics” by “Joey Valence & Brae”
I really like “Punk Tactics” for a number of reasons. Mainly because of the vocals, the lyrics are interesting, but the way the lyrics are expressed are really impressive. The tune is pretty good. My favorite part of the song is around 1:50-2:05. Again, I’m not very familiar with many of their other songs, but this one is really good, and I recommend checking it out.
And finally, my favorite song on my playlist (Excluding a certain band)
#1 is Mike Krol’s song “Fifteen Minutes.”
Now, I haven’t been familiar with some of the other albums of the other artists before in this list, I just liked a certain song they had produced. But Mike Krol is one I know well.
“Fifteen Minutes” is part of the “I Hate Jazz” Album released in 2011. some of the songs in this album have been in a few different things. “Fifteen Minutes” was in a dating sim game I like called “Monster Prom”, Thats where I first heard of this song. Some of you may have watched Steven universe as a kid, if you have, you may recognize his song “Like a Star” It was in season 4 episode 6 of steven universe. The lyrics in this song really pack a punch, The guitar and drums, are a chef’s kiss, and the other instruments pull everything together.
(If were excluding a certain band) Then this is by far my favorite song on my playlist. This was a tie for “Seventeen (Age)” Also by Mike Krol. Both of them are really good.
Thank you, for taking time out of your day to read a random list of songs,
And if you want to check any of these out, the one I recommend the most, (the one I think most people would like) you should check out “Mystery Girl” by “Housecall.”
