In my shameless effort to combine the sweet with the crunchy on this blog, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to put up a photo of Davis who is currently appearing on MTV's The Real World Denver. The gay frat boy from Marietta, GA is making the hearts of plenty of gay guys and straight girls tick a little faster with his good ole' Southern charm. Via the fine folks at MTV/Urge, Davis tells Arjanwrites.com about some of his favorite tracks he used to listen to while filming the show this summer. His taste is not particularly eclectic, but it is an okay mix of mainstream favorites. His descriptions refer to a few of his Real World cast mates. Learn more about them here. So let's get to it. What's on Davis' playlist?
Keane, "Leaving So Soon"
"I first heard this song when we were in Thailand. We had just found out that when our vacation was over, we'd all be going home just six days later. I listened to the song a lot realizing we'd all be leaving."
Cassie, "Me & U"
"The first night we moved into the house, Alex and I went out to a club, and I remember hearing and loving this song."
Nelly Furtado, "Promiscuous"
"We just seemed to hear this song every club we went to all summer. PJ loved it, too!"
(Davis' entire list after the jump.)
Cherish, "Do It, To It"
"For some reason, I loved this song and would always sing it with the kids on Outward Bound while hiking mountains."
Christina Aguilera, "Ain't No Other Man"
"PJ heard this song while I was in Denver and send it to me on a CD and said I'd love it ... he was right."
Gnarls Barkley, "Crazy"
"Brooke heard this song in L.A. before she came to Denver and would always be singing it. None of us had heard it yet and thought Brooke was just singing about how crazy she was."
Bubba Sparxxx, "Miss New Booty"
"Brooke's theme song. She loved her 'big juicy booty,' as she liked to call it."
"Colie's theme song. She was the bossiest of the girls and loved the line 'I'm a boss!' at the beginning."
Ciara, "So What"
"We first heard this at the beginning of the summer out clubbing. I remember dancing with Ty to it."
Pussycat Dolls, "Buttons"
"Jenn had just gotten done touring with a dance group and had the sickest dance routine to this song that she'd perform on me."
Panic! At The Disco, "I Write Sins Not Tragedies"
Colie and Jenn were OBSESSED with this song and stayed up all night singing the lyrics they found online; however, their version was totally off from the real one."
E-40, "Tell Me Where to Go"
"I'm somewhat of a terrible dancer, but Ty taught me some moves to this song. Alex loved the 'Go stupid/Go dumb, dumb, dumb' line."
Justin Timberlake, "SexyBack"
"Brooke was sure Justin was singing about a girl with a sexy back, i.e. a nice booty."
Yung Joc, "It's Goin' Down"
"Another song that reminds me of Ty and him getting down at the club. When he dances, everyone's gotta get out of the way."
"I heard this song right before I came to Denver and was always singing it. I'm sure whichever director had to listen to me was so annoyed."
Brittany Murphy, "Faster Kill Pussy Cat"
"I wasn't a fan of Brittany Murphy until I heard this song. She has such a sexy voice, and I'd always request it when we were out."
Kierra Sheard, "You Don't Know"
"When I first met Steve, we talked about our love of gospel music and both really liked this song. It's awesome!"
John Mayer, "3x5"
"One of Steve's and my favorite singers. We both sang this a lot out in the woods."
Jay-Z, "Change Clothes"
"Wherever we wanted to change clothes, we had to get our microphones temporarily removed. So, I'd tell the director I needed to change cloths and then start singing this song."
John Legend, "It's Alright"
"Tyrie and I both loved this song and bonded on our first Outward Bound trip singing it while hiking down a mountain. Needless to say, we sang a lot on hikes."
Kirk Franklin, "Hosanna"
"I always was humming or singing this song whenever I was on a ledge, going rappelling, or just felt in danger. It's a cool gospel song that made me feel safer."
