do you remember?
the 21st night of september?
song of the week:
“september” – earth, wind, & fire
this week was all about throwbacks for me – it’s been a long stressful week and sometimes you just want to listen to the things you loved when you were a child. there have been studies that what you listen to between the ages of 12-14 will stick with you for the rest of your life and will change the way you listen to music for the rest of your life.
here are some highlights of the music that changed my life as a teenager and will hold a place in my heart for the rest of my life:
songs that invoked the most memories and emotions:
“writing on the walls” – underoath
“i swear we need to find some comfort in this run down place
to bridge the gap of this conscious state that we live in
and i’m short on time”
“terrible things” – mayday parade
“she said, ‘boy, can i tell you a terrible thing?
it seems that i’m sick and i’ve only got weeks.
please, don’t be sad now, i really believe,
you were the greatest thing that ever happened to me.‘
slow, so slow i fell to the ground on my knees.
so don’t fall in love, there’s just too much to lose
if you’re given the choice, then i beg you to choose
to walk away, don’t let her get you.
i can’t bear to see the same happen to you.
now, son, i’m only telling you this
because life can do terrible things“
songs i’m kind of ashamed of but could sing my heart out to:
“your biggest fan” – nevershoutnever!
(anything nevershoutnever really… used to be my
favorite band. i know every word to every song)
“donttrustme” – 3oh!3
“not good enough for truth in cliche” – escape the fate
“yeah boy and doll face” – pierce the veil
stay true to your 13 year old self,
