A Five Song Friday the 13th Shuffle
No spookiness here, unless you count wild swings of mood and genre. Then I suppose it kind of is.
The Presets – Get The Fuck Out Of Here
Dance music that isn’t quite danceable, this song is a strange one, and yet I like it a lot. I may like it just because it isn’t a radio friendly unit shifter, and I can really identify with the song’s main sentiment. I also think it’s a strong runner up for Holden’s theme song.
We Are Scientists – Chick Lit
Now we swing into alt power pop that sounds cheerful, but is all about a bitter break up. The dichotomy between the tone of the music and the words could give you whiplash.
Porcupine Tree – Strip The Soul
Well, at least the music and words match. A gloomy, creepy song by a band that isn’t Tool. Perfect for Friday the 13th.
El-P – Up All Night
Swinging into rap now. While not necessarily a positive song, it’s the most upbeat song on this list.
Tears Run Rings – Waiting For The End
A gorgeous bit of sorrowful shoegaze, if the name of the band didn’t give that away. Also, the official couple song for Roan and Paris, because it’s beautiful and painfully sad.
