14 Songs from One Tree Hill

Want to know my top 14 from the hit TV show One Tree Hill? Here are 14 songs to save you life from one of the best TV shows – for music and much more.

I think we would all be lost without music and a lot of people my age listen to ‘top of charts’ and quite frankly it’s a load of shit. There I said it and with that loads of people my age just got really mad and defensive, well its my opinion of course, but come on, most of the music these days is auto-tuned and not even written by the actual artist, they aren’t talented, they aren’t creative, they have ‘it’. Anyone can have a music career these days, why? I don’t know, I guess people these days would rather listen to fake shit made by pretty artists then the REAL musicians out there, excluding Ed Sheeran, I can’t stand modern music. Give me 80’s music to dance to any day, give me 90’s music for a party any day, give me 00’s music any day to sing along too.

But today I have selected some of my favourite ‘One Tree Hill’ songs. Enjoy!

Here Comes A Regular – The Replacements

Half Moon – Blind Pilot

Good Life – OneRepublic

I Shall Believe – Sheryl Crow

Can’t Go Back Now – The Weepies

Coffee And Cigarettes – Michelle Featherstone

Hear You Me – Jimmy Eat World

Always Love – Nada Surf

Stay Away – The Honorary Title

Broken – Lifehouse

I Dare You To Move – Switchfoot

Boston – Augustana

Secret Crowds – Angels & Airwaves

The Girl – City And Colour

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

I was looking for something to watch one night on Amazon Prime when I happened to come across a new segment on Amazon video called ‘ Pilot Season’, curious to see what it was all about I clicked on the link and was presented with six pilots for new and upcoming TV shows that could be contracted to become series. Out of all of these shows the one that stuck out to me the most was ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ a pilot about a young adult women in the 50’s, happily married with 2 children, when her life suddenly changes overnight. In this one night her husband leaves and she realizes she has a talent that had never been noticed before. After the episode ended, that was it, I couldn’t go about my normal activities of binge watching a TV show for hours on end because, like I said it was just a pilot episode. I jumped on the link to take the survey about the pilot becoming a series and let Amazon know my opinion on why this show should be a new ‘Amazon Original’.

I can say with all honesty if you liked Gilmore Girls you’ll like this show and it may seem weird how the script seems just as fast and witty as Gilmore Girls but that’s only because the amazingly talented Amy Sherman-Palladino directed it!

Since the cancellation of ‘Good Girls Revolt’ I have felt a little bitter towards Amazon video because why would they cancel a perfectly good show that women can enjoy, now I am not saying us girls don’t like cars and action and I do not speak for all women but I loved the show because it shown us some real history, the struggle for women while working in the 60s/70s and what life was really like. The women’s revolution didn’t end when women could vote or own property, it was still going on with work place discrimination and lower wages, this show highlighted this, it was a good show and Amazon cancelled it. So, if they want to make up for it, they need to add another show highlighting similar issues and soon, this show is it, this show is what Amazon need.

The show is fresh, it’s new and its different. The fast pasted, witty and funny Midge is what we need, there are many amazing shows out there, but there are many boring shows out there that all do the same thing, they follow the same plots and storylines and personally I get tired and fed up with another show just like the last, but this, this is different and I am a fan of different. Maybe it’s just me but I love a show that takes us back in time, to a time that now, in 2017 you can’t believe actually existed with the extreme sexism and double standards but amazingly at the same time, you still see these things happen in the modern world, in a time that none of it should exist, the racism, sexism and homophobes should have died out a long time again but didn’t and you can watch a show and be amazed how they used to live their lives but realize, in some ways the world is still like that to some degree.

I am not going to lie, I sat down to watch this shoe expecting good things as I had high hopes that Amy would deliver again and I was not disappointed. I loved seeing Amy’s work in this show, you could see her work through out and that fast pasted wittiness reminded me of my much beloved show ‘Gilmore Girls’. The great thing is, these 2 shows are different but if you have ever seen Gilmore Girls you’ll also see the work of Amy throughout, it’s like her brand, witty and charming, it makes this show so much better, just by her being on it. Now, this isn’t just about Amy or a strong female show, its about something new and fresh, like I said earlier something we haven’t seen before and if the TV world needs something… its something fresh, witty and different. Trust me.

If Amazon decides to axe this show after an amazing pilot like that, its a damn shame and they are pretty stupid for doing so. Do something right Amazon, give this pilot a series.

Four TV Shows you should watch in 2017

As you all know, I am a lover of good TV and I love some drama (on TV off course) and I have five shows you should check out this year!

Gilmore Girls

I could talk your ear off about Gilmore Girls, it is hands down one of my favourite shows, it has everything and if you are looking for a show to binge watch this year, this is the one for you. If you are looking for drama, wit, humour and real life mixed into one, try this show. Focusing around 32 year old mother and 16 year old daughter in a little town called Stars Hollow. Between the locals in town, the girls love life’s and the ‘grandparents’ you have enough drama in the 45 minutes each episode runs for. Gilmore Girls is on Netflix and you can buy the box set for about 40 pound online. By the way, as an added bonus, The Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life has just come out on Netflix, so we finally get to hear those last 4 words!

One Tree Hill

And the reward for most disaster’s to happen in one series goes too…one tree hill. I only got into this show this year( on a friends recommendation). You can go from hating a character one season and by the next you love them. Take Brooke Davis for instance. You will cry during the cause of this TV series though, just a warning. You will most certainly have a ‘ship’ by the end of the series, mine is Haley and Nathan!

The Fosters

When I started watching this show, I was sceptical as to whether I would like the storyline or the characters but if you love shows like Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill, you’ll probably like this one. The show is all about a same sex couple, Lena and Steph raising their 2 foster children, Jesus and Marianna and Steph’s son from a previous marriage called Brandon. The show starts with new comer Callie Jacobs, a foster child who has had some bad foster homes and just wants a safe place for her and her brother Jude, luckily she finds that for her and her brother with the fosters. Between Callie and Brandon’s secret love for each over and Marianna problems with her birth mover, Jesus’s issues with his pills and girl trouble and Jude’s sexuality, this show has everything and again, it will have you crying, laughing and sitting at the end of your seat and screaming at the end of each episode, they do love a good cliff hanger on this show.

Bones

I love crime shows, a little too much I think, but bones has been by far one of the best I have seen so far. I am so unhappy that it’s ending this year after season 12, but we still have 11 amazing season to binge watch whenever you want too. What’s different about this show is that, it doesn’t just have crime drama, it also has the wit and humour I love. It did take me about 2 seasons of binge watching too realize that Emily (who plays Bones) and Zooey (plays Jess on New Girl) are sisters. By the way, Zooey features in an episode of Bones as well.

I hope you like my top 4 TV shows you should watch this year and at least got one new favourite from this list.
