First of all, I would like to congratulate you on getting an iPod Nano.
iPod Nanos are one of my all-time favorite material things in the universe. I'm actually considering getting an iPod Nano 5th Generation tattooed on me sometime in the far, far future when I have a hopefully less fragile employment situation and an intense craving for nostalgia.
As for my song recommendations:
For something more upbeat- "Mädchen aus dem All" by Tokio Hotel
For a song with an intelligently serious tone- "The Man Who Sold the World" by David Bowie or the cover of it by Nirvana is also excellent.
For a punky, catchy anthem- "Broken Hearts Parade" by Good Charlotte
For something sexuality affirming, body positive, and hella sexy- "Love Who Loves You Back" by Tokio Hotel
@ Secrets Hurt, your icon freaks me out every time I see it in the forums. In September, I went and changed all my computer stuff to the KoS album cover, so for a split second I think you're me when you post something.
:P TH's Aliens make the world a better place to be.
Lol Kuttingedge, I AM you..I'm the other you lol. I can change it if you it freaks you out too much? I thought you were insulting Bill at first, I was ready to kill you, well not,literally but you know. I LOVE BILL!! <3
You can try most of the songs from Katy McAllister. It depends if you like songs that are generally meant to be more or less quite sad, yet they don't have 'sad' beats to them. I'm sure you'd understand if you listen to some of her songs. Some below that I find really good:
I'm afraid I'm not going to include my top ten because the list changes and this depends on my mood, but the first one is usually 'approachable' with all my moods. One you can try is "All About You" by Birdy. Generally not sad, but I love the tune and the way Jasmine sings. Plus, the lyrics are awesome!
I wasn’t strong enough
And you didn’t give enough
When I needed you
I needed you
