Pop Punk Christmas/Holiday Songs

 

I’m not someone who listens to a lot of holiday music.  But I love pop punk and there are some really great songs out there if you look around.  I thought I would share ten below.  They’re definitely not all happy songs, but anyone that likes pop punk will probably enjoy these.

Warped Tour 2018 Part One

I went to the final Chicago Warped Tour on Saturday July 21st and thought I would share a little about it with some videos.

 

It was cool for once which was great, but it did rain on and off all day.  I’ll take that over 90+ with humidity any day though.  I got soaked a few times, but I didn’t care.  I didn’t overheat and we were able to see a lot more bands because of it.

Some of my favorite bands!

Today I thought I would do something a little different.  I love music and wanted to share some (not all) of my favorite bands.   I’m going to include a video from each one (my own concert footage if I have it).

 

State Champs  I’ve seen them live multiple times and they are one of my favorite live bands.  They will be at Warped Tour again this year.

OMG This Song Book Tag

I was tagged by Kayla for this tag.

MY JAM:
A SONG YOU MUST LISTEN TO EVERY TIME IT COMES ON, NO MATTER HOW OLD OR HOW MANY TIMES YOU’VE LISTENED TO IT / A BOOK YOU’LL NEVER GET SICK OF

I have quite a few songs I never get tired of and always have to listen to.  I’ll just go with a couple.

Issues Stingray Affliction  and Fall Out Boy Sugar We’re Going Down.

A book would probably be The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.

THROWBACK:
A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF THE CRINGIEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE / A BOOK THAT ALSO REMINDS YOU OF THIS TIME (OR JUST SOMETHING YOU WOULDN’T LIKE AS MUCH IF YOU PICKED IT UP FOR THE FIRST TIME NOW)

Maybe not the cringiest time in my life, but definitely a person I don’t like to think about. I still like this song and book, but they do make me remember that time of my life more than I would like.

The song would be Fast Car by Tracy Chapman.

The book is probably Small Sacrifices by Ann Rule.  I really didn’t read much during this time period, but I do remember reading this one then.

REPLAY:
A RECENT SONG YOU HAVE ON REPEAT RIGHT NOW / A RECENT FAVORITE BOOK

Not a super recent song, but one I still listen to constantly (and the video linked is mine from a concert a few months ago).

With Confidence Dinner Bell

A recent favorite book is Geekerella by Ashley Poston.

GETS ME:
THIS SONG IS ME / THIS BOOK IS ME IN BOOK FORM

I can’t really think of a song that is me.  It all depends on the day. But if I think of one, I’ll come back and edit this.

A book would probably be The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli.  Not completely me, but I noticed a lot of things that I related to with Molly.

WUT:
WEIRD BUT I LIKE IT? – A UNIQUE BOOK THAT STUCK OUT TO YOU FOR WHATEVER REASON

I have a few songs, but I’ll go with Morningwood Sugarbaby.

For my book, I’m going with Weird Girl and What’s His Name by Meagan Brothers.

26812837

LET’S GO:
BEST PUMP UP SONG (FOR WORKOUTS OR JUST LIFE) – A BOOK THAT INSPIRED YOU

For a song, I’m going with Harlem by New Politics.

A book that inspired me was Pushing The Boundaries by Stacey Trombley.

27282169

CHILL:
FAVORITE CHILL, RELAXING SONG / A BOOK YOU’D CURL UP WITH AND READ ON A RAINY DAY

Really any song by this band, but I’ll go with this one since there’s a video. This Wild Life History.

For a book, I tend to like more emotional books on rainy days.  So probably Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

15745753

ADDICTING:
GUILTY PLEASURE SONG – ONE THAT’S CATCHY AND ADDICTING BUT NOT A WHOLE LOT OF SUBSTANCE / GUILTY PLEASURE/TRASHY/FAST/LIGHT READ

This might be the hardest one for me.  For a song, I’ll go with NOFX Linoleum.  It’s one of my favorite songs.

For books, I love Entangled Teen books.  They’re sweet and fluffy. So any will work, but I’ll go with one I’ve read recently.  The Perfectly Imperfect Match by Kendra C. Highley.

I still don’t know anyone well, so I’m just going to tag the most recent bloggers I’ve received e-mails from.  It’s totally cool if you don’t want to participate.
