The 30-Day Music Meme: Day One

I figured that, as a blogger or any kind of writer, sometimes it can be difficult to get inspired.  I noticed a lot of friends were doing the 30-Day Music Meme and I figured that would be a good way for me to get my blog going.  I mean, it's going to get me to blog at least 30 entries, right?

So here's Day One: Your favourite song.

I'm going to be straight-up argumentative and difficult (as I tend to be) and say that it's completely fucking impossible to choose ONE favourite song, especially as a music lover. So I'm going to pick one current favourite song, and a longtime favourite (but not necessarily ALL-TIME favourite... because I seriously think it would be impossible).

My current favourite is Best Coast's "Bratty B." I love the crunchy guitar intro, the harmonizing "whuh-ohs" at the beginning and the cute simplicity of the lyrics: "I'm sorry I lost your favourite t-shirt / I'll buy you a new one / a better one." Clocking in at 1:43, this is a pure pop gem, through and through.

I've been obsessed with this band for months and months now, and I've had their album Crazy For You on repeat like you wouldn't believe. Admittedly, I had a tough time choosing a "favourite" from this album, but "Bratty B" gets stuck in my head so often, it fully deserves to be named my current favourite song.
I can't wait to see them play Lee's Palace in September!

My longtime favourite has to be a Beach Boys song. I'm in love with their music in their heyday and Brian Wilson is something of a god to me. "Surfer Girl" makes me melt, simple as that... "makes my heart come all undone." Yeah... that. Siiiigh.
