ilaw, by Hatsune Miku

The title for the song comes from the Filipino word meaning "light", which is what the song reminds me of whenever I listen to it: countless lights up in the sky called stars. This song is a last resort method I sometimes use to help me fall asleep. When it does, my brain shuts off until my iPod plays the next song and wakes me up. I try not to think about that, though, and just drift off with the song. If you're even interested in electronic ambient/ethereal music, this is one song to check out.

People Are Strange, by The Doors

I already wrote about Nico and Lou Reed in previous entries, so I'll shine the spotlight on the Doors this time around. Because they're so similar, the Doors are tied with the Velvet Underground as my favorite band. As of now, my favorite song from The Doors is People Are Strange. It's a song that illustrates how I feel about the world sometimes when I'm out on my own. Not everyone's going to be nice to you in the real world, and that's something that makes timid me a little more weary about the people I encounter. That's quite a far cry from the poppy, Top 40 tunes many American bands were writing in the 60s. At this point, I have two more Doors albums to get, but I have a feeling this song is going to stay at the top of my list of favorite Doors songs.
