    So we are all really critical about music. Instead of saying what we don't like about songs, or what song is better than another, let's talk about what we like about a song. it doesn't have to be a 5,000 word dissertation, nor a one word answer, just an explaination of what you like about the song mentioned before. it can be anything from parts of the song, certain lyrics, melodies, beats or whatever you want it to be. If it reminds you of something, that's awesome! Let us know. After you give what you like about the song, put another song title down so the next person can share.

    I want this thread to maintain a positive outlook, so please if you're going to give answers like "Nothing" and "I hate everything about that song," do us a favor, don't comment.










    I'll start with Blackout

    Driving into work today, I was really amazed at the sincerity in Mike's voice. It's a very refreshing and positive change to the tone of the song.

    It's the biggest surprise in the entire A Thousand Suns, since it is the only acoustic track out of the extravagant album. It makes my day better.

    One of my most favorite track on HT and one of Linkin Park's most emblematic songs, as it's the first one on their debut album. I love the lyrics and Mike's rap, as well as the final part of the song, which sounds even better live, imo.

    Of course I come in and the song I have to do this for is from Meteora. FINE.

    The little guitar divebomb at the end. I guess.

    By Myself
    I liked the soft, atmospheric tune played during Mike's raps and when Chester comes, it's utter chaos.
    This was the first song that featured Chester's screaming that finishes Mike's raps. This was a style frequently used by the band afterwards.

    My favorite Lp song. Just kinda described how I felt at the time.

    I love how the song was meant to sound unfinished and viceral. From Mikes first rap in the beginning to how Chester's verses and choruses sound unpolished like on Valentine's Day makes a great addition to the MTM collection of songs.

    Dat solo. One of the few songs from MTM that really stood out to me.

    I love how Mike showed respect to Jay Z with the opening line of the song. Also, this song stuck out as a send off to Fort Minor. I still enjoy listening to it regularly.

    Session

    I just actually found out that it was nominated for a Grammy for best instrumental, but lost in the end. That's not bad.. Plus, it gives me a weird combination of motivation and relaxation.

    Fast, energetic, awesome live. I remember when I first heard Meteora and Faint started, I immediately thought "wow, this song's awesome! I bet it's gonna be the next single!" and it was. And it was awesome. Awesome.

    The Little Things Give you away was the song I couldn't stop listening to when going to Dresden, Germany, some years ago. I was practically listening to it the moment I woke up until I went to bed again. I can't even start to explain how deep this song touches me. Chesters voice is incredible and the end kind of reminds me of the end of Robot Boy, it just gives me the same kind of chill. You would think that 7 minutes is way too long for a song, but it just doesn't get boring, at no point. I still want to see it live really badly.

    Qwerty

    Again, I found out recently that they had written this song on the plane ride to Japan or throughout the tour, so it has a really raw feel to it. Also, a fast-paced, high energy song that bids farewell to the nu-metal sound of Linkin Park.
