Songs & Sitcoms #2

Three main shows that I have been watching lately are Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf and Pretty Little Liars. All of them have good soundtracks. Here are some of the songs that I liked from the shows. I have included songs only from two or three episodes of each show. I haven’t heard the full version of songs from other episodes, so I’ll post about them later.

Enjoy! 🙂

‘Ashes and Wine’ By A Fine Frenzy
From Vampire Diaries s02e03

‘Just a little bit’ By Kids of 88
Teen Wolf season 1(ep1). I haven’t seen the 80’s version of this show but I’m pretty sure this is the better one.

‘Internet Killed the Video Star’ By  The Limousines
Teen Wolf S01.

‘Don’t trust me’ by 3OH!3
Pretty Little Liars Season 1(ep1). Really nice show. I like the setting, the plot and the actors.

‘What I like- Jackie’ By James
Again from Pretty Little Liars season 1. This show has the best song selection I have seen in a show other than  Supernatural.

For The Fans Of The Supernatural

This post is for all those who love the theme ‘supernatural’ whether in books, movies or anything else. Who doesn’t enjoy a good spine-chilling horror movie once in a while? It gives a good break to the usual themes of romance, tragedies, etc. I use “supernatural” as a blanket term to include ghosts, zombies, demons, vampires and all other creatures and forms man’s imagination has given birth to. I like making lists so here is a small list of books, movies, TV shows which follow this theme and are better than the rest.

Movies:

This is my favorite genre in movies, so I have watched a good number of them. These are the ones I liked watching(meaning – I can watch it any number of times without loosing interest).

  • The Exorcist- I watched this first when I was 12 and it scared the hell out of me and I still find it creepy.
  • The Omen- Here I refer to the original movie.
  • The Descent
  • 28 Days later
  • Twilight saga – It’s not a horror movie but the theme is supernatural and I make you of this excuse to include it in my list since I’m a fan.
  • Ring
  • Shutter
  • Grudge
  • Nightmare on Elm Street– Its more of slasher film but it did release Freddie Kruger in our minds.
  • Poltergeist
  • Paranormal Activity –Its good movie considering the low-budget and few effects.
  • 30 Days of night.

There might be a few more but I can’t remember their names right now.

TV shows:

There are very few TV shows of this theme available in my country so I’ll name those which I have seen at least a few episodes.

  • The Walking Dead – I watched the whole season and I loved it.
  • Teen Wolf
  • Supernatural – I have watched 5 seasons and it is a pretty good show. I  love the actors so I watch it whenever possible.
  • The Vampire Diaries
  • True Blood

Books:
I have read only a few number of books related to this theme so this list is very small.

  • Twilight saga -( I use the same reason I  mentioned before)
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Bram Stocker’s Dracula
  • Goosebumps, Fear street by R.L.Stine – I used to love reading this series as a kid.
  • Books by Stephen King – I have just started reading so I will comment about it later.

I have heard about the following authors but haven’t read their books till now – Graham Masterton, Richard Laymond and James Herbert.

This is not an exhaustive list as it is written from what I have seen, read and heard. There may be tons of other items better than those named here, so if you know about any please leave a comment to let me and others know 🙂 .

To all the fans I also include the best song capturing the essence of horror. Hope you enjoy.

Favorites From Glee

Those of you who watch glee on tv, needs no telling how good the show is. For those who don’t know about the show, Glee is a musical-comedy series about a high school glee club called New Directions. The cast perform covers of songs by various artists in each episode.The cast is really awesome and they have so much talent. Their song selection is excellent and it touches so many genres so there is something for every music lover. These are my picks of some of the best songs from glee season-2. The name of the song is shown followed by the character(s) who performs it in the show.

  •  I feel pretty/Unpretty  – Quinn Fabray and Rachel Berry
  •  Valerie  – Santana Lopez with New Directions
  •  Light up the world  – New Directions
  •  Pretending  – Rachel Berry and Finn Hudson
  •  Kiss  – Will Schuester and Holly Holliday
  • Get It Right  – Rachel Berry with Brittany Pierce and Tina Cohen-Chang
