Music That Stops the World

Eating lunch at my favorite sushi place with my favorite lunch partner Queentuffy, we started discussing the music playing over the restaurants speakers. The discussion centered around what music will make me stop what I'm doing to listen. If you looked at my music library, you would think that I only like one type of music. With a the complete catalogue of Metallica, Disturbed, Seether, and others of similiar ilk, I would agree it is slanted a certain way. However, my tastes bridge more gaps than expected. My list of music that stops my world proves this. No matter what I'm doing these songs make me stop and listen. They are listed below in no particular order.

  1. The Fray - How to Save a Life.

  2. Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars.

  3. Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone.

  4. Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls.

  5. Katy Perry - Hot N Cold.

  6. Black Sabbath - Paranoid.

  7. Flock of Seagulls - I Ran.

  8. KISS - Detroit Rock City.

  9. Offspring - Gone Away.

  10. Papa Roach - She Loves Me Not.

These are the top ten of world stoppers for me. Some are because I learned to play these songs and others because they call to me. I have the radio on all day while at work and love it when any of these songs are played. Problem is more often than not a coworker will stop by right as one of these starts. How do you politely tell someone to go away so not to interrupt the song? So if I ignore you, chances are one of these songs are playing. I hope you understand.


  1. Half of those I know and like, the others... well I know of the artists but that is about it. I will give you 100% credit for proving you are not stricktly a metalhead tho!

  2. I know all of them, and was surprised by "Since you've been gone" I giggle at the thought of you belting that song out loud!
