Also known as: The requisite 12-12-12 post
Can also be called: My 2012 soundtrack
I am a sucker for dates like this, so I cannot let 12-12-12 pass by without posting something at exactly 12:12.1 I was thinking of something inane to post, something random like my Leap Day post, and then I realized that I should probably start my 2012 recaps early because who knows how busy I will be by year-end?
I’m gonna go all hipster and make my 12-12-12 post a mixed-tape / my 2012 soundtrack post. But a side note first: You know I never really made mixed-tapes when I was younger? :D I made mixed CDs, yes, but I never made mixed-tapes. I did, however, record shows and songs from the radio especially when I liked the songs — I remember this time when I recorded Backstreet Boys’ version of I’ll Never Find Someone Like You and listened to it over and over and over and over again.
But I digress. I’m far from a musical person, really, and I only sing when I am forced to/bored/really feeling the song. However, I am almost, always listening to something when I am free. It may be a defense mechanism so I won’t have to talk to anyone when I’m outside, but more often than not, I listen to songs so keep my mind from wandering everywhere. I have yet to learn keeping my mind still in the silence, but for now, let me have my music.
So for this post, my first recap for 2012, I have 12 songs that will remind me of 2012 every time I listen to them.2 It’s not necessarily one song per month, even if it may seem like it.3
Also, warning: lots of ~feelings~ in these songs. Haha. :P You were warned!
1. There is a Reason by Caedmon’s Call (Overdressed)
For the lonely nights and broken hearts
The widow’s mite in the rich man’s hand
And the continent whose blood becomes a traitor
For the child afraid to close their eyes
The prayers that seem unanswered
There is a reason, there is a reason
If I made a similar post last year, this song would be on that list, too. This song reminds me that…well, there is a reason for everything, and God makes all things good.
- if it’s exact by the second, I do not know, because WordPress doesn’t have that by the second setting. So let’s just assume that it was posted at exactly 12:12:12 [↩]
- Or you know, some songs I played on repeat at certain times during the year. [↩]
- My research tells me that in January, I was still listening to some leftover 2011 songs that I should’ve let go when the year started. :P [↩]
