Sometimes there’s a song that I’ve heard a thousand times and then one day I finally give it my complete attention and realize how amazing it is. I always wonder how dumb I could be in order to not realize it to begin with.
I think it’s because it’s really soft at the beginning and you can’t really hear what he’s saying. I put my volume up as loud as it could go and listened to the lyrics and my heart melted a little bit.
You all should do the same.
veering off your greedy heart
i cant understand your pain anymore
we can get a lawyer and move on
we can get a lawyer if you want
i can understand your pain, but i wont
if we cant get along we cant be in love
end of the world in the middle of nowhere
nothing/something happens anywhere/everywhere
your black irish smile begins
up the soft snow of your skin
as the memory sinks in
i’d give anything to start again
i cant stop remembering
Angela’s post somewhat inspired this one. I have been thinking a lot lately of the things that I’ve liked for a long time and that I don’t think I’d ever get tired of. Mostly music, I guess. So I figured I would compile a list of the bands that I love/the songs I love by them!
Even though the lyrics are either really terrible or really lame I can’t help but love practically every song (even though “Room on Fire” and “Is this it?” sounded nearly identical!). I’m kinda bummed that this band isn’t going to be releasing anything anytime in the near future but we can definitely look forward to something eventually! On February 1 they announced that they have started recording their fourth album! Finally!
Even though I don’t get sick of this band very easily I kinda get tired of listening to the side projects easily. I guess it’s because I only have “Phrazes for the Young” by Julian Casablancas and the ST Little Joy album on my computer. Which totally makes sense considering there are no other albums I could possibly have (except for Julian’s EP and the other members’ solo projects. Whatever! Julian and Fabrizio all the way!).
I know that it’s only December 15th and it’s probably a little early to think of New Years and everything but I decided to create a few lists of things that I liked from 2009. Yeah, that’s right.
after all of the convincing, we finally saw bright star together around a month ago. i thought it was pretty powerful! especially during the credits. i wish we watched it in a larger theatre. i’ve read about people’s experiences and some have said that the entire audience was awe struck and overcome with the beauty of the entire film while the credits were rolling!
the movie made me want to know more about john keats and also know more about poetry. maybe if i read his letters and his poems it will be one step closer to understanding!
i saw crime in stereo last weekend. their opening song was from their new album “i was trying to describe you to someone” which comes out around february 2010. this band never ceases to amaze me!
i took a very short video during ‘orbiter’.
for the past four years my aunt has ordered us the santa’s choice (formerly chrisco) hampers. it’s probably the highlight of my winters. although, i have to admit, it does suck when you don’t eat meat and there’s an entire box dedicated to steaks, hamburgers, roasts, and ground beef. needs more falafel, perogies, and other yummy foods.
