30 Day Lolita Challenge, Day 8: 10 Songs That Inspire Your Lolita

I really enjoyed thinking about this particular post. I don't listen to music nearly as much as I used to so putting on my headphones and listening to some of my favorite tunes was a nice change of pace. The post was also once which took me much longer to compose as I looked into which songs I felt to be really suitable for the list.

1) Wolf Parade's "I'll Believe in Anything" mostly makes it onto the list because of the awesome 18th century inspired video. Watching the proper video while listening to the music escalate in tenseness is awesome.

2) Kyary's "Tsukema Tsukeru" is just really fun and playful. I really enjoy how at the beginning of the video Kyary is sitting on a throne adorned like a regal queen. I also in general like Kyary's fashion sense.

3) "Headlock" by Imogen Heap is the next song that inspires my lolita. I love the softness and whimsical nature of the song. The artist's vintage inspired clothing look also really lovely. 

4) Katy Perry's "California Gurls" is such a sugary sweet song that I love! The video is so amazing too. I love Katy's purple wig and white sugary sweet covered outfit. Like, seriously, I wants it. 

5) PogoMix's "Alice (Disney Remix)" is such a calming but quirky song to hear. I love the way that Alice's voice is taken and remixed over a beat. The video itself is very whimsical and trippy too. 

6) I discovered Kalafina's song "Magia" through watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica (an amazing anime which I recommend if you haven't seen it). The sad but passionate song makes me feel elegant and grand when I listen to it.

7) Gwen Stefani's "Luxurious" helps to describe how I feel about the the luxury that lolita has. While I feel depressed about the price tags of lolita often, I do love the quality and luxurious feeling of the clothing.

8) Benny Goodman's "Sing, Sing, Sing" is a song which reminds me of the 1950's style influences which helped to get me into liking the look of lolita fashion. The fact Benny Goodman was also an amazing artist and the king of clarinet only help to make me love this song more.

9) The slow pacing of Arty Shaw's "Nightmare" helps to make it another 1950's song that I love. 

10) To round off the list, I just have to include one of my general favorites Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance". Though she goes too extreme, I like Lady Gaga's fashion sense in this video and just the song overall.
