But with One Tree Hill, I've literally had days where I've sat down and watched 11 episodes in a row, only pausing to go to the bathroom. It's REALLY addictive once you get into it. Hell, it's worth a watch just for the music alone, though.
That good, huh? Seeing how you went through 5 seasons
in about a month, you must REALLY love this show.
I think I may just check it out for the music. That track by Earlimart
"Face Down in the Right Town,"... my God... I LOVE IT!!!
Real chill. Real good music. My first time hearing them.
Listened to some other tracks by them, and I think I found
a new music obsession! In fact, I'm listening to some of their
stuff as I'm typing this. I'm really vibing with their music!
So much so, I want to get them on my playlist. (Once I get a new iPod.)
Mine went bust several months back, along with my laptop. My only source
of reliable music was my small stereo, which one of my sisters snatched
back in May. Can't even listen to my CDs. Sisters!
She said she'd bring it back, but I'm still waiting on her to return it.
So, I've been music deprived for a while now, which is kind of driving me bananas,
but I'm never really home, so... I guess it's okay if she holds on to it a little longer.
I know a lot of people say Grey's Anatomy and Gossip Girl have the best music on TV, but to me, nothing has greater music than One Tree Hill. In fact, the only show that can even compete on a music-level is probably The Vampire Diaries. And now that One Tree Hill is officially over, I guess I'll say Vampire Diaries has the best music on TV.
Never got in to any of those shows, either. Although I did watch some
with the same sister who watched One Tree Hill
When we all used to live together, and I was home on nights it was on, she'd
pretty much "kidnap" me, and force me to watch it with her in the bedroom.
She'd actually lock the door to deter me from running off.
She wanted someone to watch it with, and then talk about
the episode with. Guess which sister... "Patches."
And another sister watches Gossip Girl
, and I have caught some episodes watching it with
her, but I did NOT care much for the characters. Except for Blair and Chuck. They were
the only two who kept my interest. But I did NOT become a regular watcher.
As for The Vampire Diaries
, I had read the first book, a long time ago, years before the television
series ever came out, and I remember NOT enjoying it very much and wanting to just give up on it.
But I'm the type of person, once I am a good way through a book (and even if I think
it's awful and I CANNOT stand to read another word), I'm driven by a strange compulsion
to finish it. And then, once I read book one, I took my crazy self to the library to check out
book two. I must have NOT gone through that many chapters of B2 because, I totally gave
up on it and promptly returned it. I do NOT even know what possessed me to even start B2,
but I did and I sure did NOT get far. Years later, it became a tv series, and remembering my
experience with the books I was NOT all that excited, but I was curious and watched the pilot.
Another sister watched it for awhile and I caught chunks of scenes in passing, and it seems
different from the what I remember the books being. I remember being very annoyed with the
character of Elena in the books, but Elena in the series seems tolerable (from the little I've seen).
And I think she was a blonde in the book??
Anyhoo... if you say the music on the show is the best on television, I should give it
an earnest try, too.
One of my sisters has netflix, so I'll see if they have it.
Hey, April, you know what?... this is kind of random, but still relevant to the topic...
You know the girl who plays Bonnie... she sings too.
Last month, I came across some of her MV on youtube.
My sister was in town for a short while and I had use of her laptop for a day. I was just listening
away as I was organizing some things, and clicked on one of the featured videos, and there she
was. I was like... Hey, that's the girl from The Vampire Diaries!
I listened to two tracks ("Put Your Graffiti on Me," and "Heartkiller"), and though there's NOT much
to the lyrics, I had fun dancing to them. I may just regret sharing this, and may cringe with
embarassment after the fact, but when I got to track two, I could NOT stop but press the replay
button. I grabbed the full length mirror one of my sister's left behind, and spent nearly an hour
dancing around... pretending I was in a MV. It took me forever to get ready and out of the house.
I swear, I would never have done that, had I NOT been alone.
Okay, so that's my little confession for the day. I should
end this before I embarass myself some more.
I really didn't have a song to share, but I guess I'll post the one that had me in a dance frenzy.
