Day LUCKY 13


My favorite musician and why:
I wish I could say I had one favorite musician. It’s impossible for a girl who has as many interests as me to have one set favorite musician. I have a few top favorites that have stood the test of time like:
Fall Out Boy
Paramore
Tegan and Sara
& Michelle Branch.
Michelle Branch- I loved her in high school in a way that made sense only to a teenage girl in love with signing. Michelle was doing the damn thing and I loved her for it. Her lyrics were simple, catchy, and relatable.
“I still get lost in your eyes and it seems I can’t live a day with out you…” For a sap like me? GOLD!

Tegan and Sara: These twins are so versatile. There music speaks volumes to me in ways I can’t explain with words. I can listen to any of their cds and just pick out the singular song that transcends me into another dimension of pure happiness. There are also songs of theirs that put me in my” dark” place because they remind me so much of how I feel. These feelings go hand in hand with the other bands listed above Paramore and Fall Out Boy. Let me give you an example of the song that puts me in my happy place:
“”Frozen: “Looking for a laugh wanna stop back
When you’re done whining
And taking things back
I’ll be there as always feet submerged
And probably frozen
We can only hope that I’ll be frozen
Enough of that as if I care as if I need to know
Like I was there
But if I was you just call my name call my name
And I’ll be there if you call my name
You know I’ll be there

the U I THINK I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH BECAUSE OF THE ENERGY. the CALLING MY NAME calling MY NAME PART REALLY DOES SOMETHING FOR ME. then THERE’S THE SONG THAT HITS WAY TOO CLOSE TO HOME:
There’s a war inside of me
Do I cause new heartbreak to write a new broken song
Do I push it down or let it run me right into the ground
I feel like I wouldn’t like me if I met me
Well I can’t stop talking for fear of listening to unwelcome sound
And you haven’t called me in weeks and honestly it’s bringing me down
I feel like I wouldn’t like me if I met me
I feel like you wouldn’t like me if you met me
And don’t you worry there’s still time
There’s nothing to live for when I’m sleeping alone
Tegan and Sara wrote this song for me. I know it. I mean come on we’ve all felt this way. So utterly depressed and unwanted that you’re just like damn. I wouldn’t even like me if I met me. Just gah. Love it!

Then there is Paramore. I mean Hayley Williams? You are my absolute heo. You are doing the damn thing and rocking it and keeping up with the boys. Plus you’re cute as a button. That orange hair? Love it! But it goes like this… A lot of people hate on Paramore and Fall out Boy for that matter but these two bands have amazing lyrics and a front person that has a real set of pipes. I AM NOT A FAN OF SCREAMING BUT I KNOW THERE ARE SCREAMING BANDS THAT HAVE AMAZING LYRICS TOO BUT TO HEAR A REAL VOICE SINGING BE WORDS THAT MAKE ME SMILE IN A WAY I CAN’T EXPLAIN? gosh Ii LOVE IT!” Cause I’ve seen love die
Way too many times
When it deserved to be alive”
I SENSE Hayley’s DESPERATION IN THIS SONG. like I WANT TO CLING AN DHANG OUT AND MAKE THIS WORK! love DESERVES TO BE ALIVE AND THIS IS LOVE. I SENSE HER “emergency” BUT WHAT REALLY GETS ME IS THE BANDS MATURITY. the LYRICS THE PROSE NOW ARE SO IN TUNE TO WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD THAT EACH PERSON WHO IS HURTING CAN RELATE. especially TO THIS SONG AND I AM POSTING THE ENTIRE SONG LYRICS: Turn It Off”

I scraped my knees while I was praying
And found a demon in my safest haven
Seems like it’s getting harder to believe in anything
Than just to get lost in all my selfish thoughts

I wanna know what it’d be like
To find perfection in the pride
To see nothing in the light
But turn it off in all my spite, in all my spite
I’ll turn it off

And the worst part is, before it gets any better
We’re headed for a cliff
Then in the free fall I will realize
I’m better off when I hit the bottom

The tragedy it seems I’m ending
I’m watching everyone I looked up to break and bending
We’re taking shortcuts and false illusions
Just to come out the hero

Well I can see behind the curtain
The wheels are cranking turning
It’s all wrong the way we’re working
Towards a goal, that’s nonexistent, it’s nonexistent
But we just keep believing

And the worst part is, before it gets any better
We’re headed for a cliff
Then in the free fall I will realize
I’m better off when I hit the bottom

I wanna know what it’d be like
To find perfection in my pride
To see nothing in the light
But turn it off in all my spite, in all my spite
I’ll turn it off
Just turn it off

Again
, again

And the worst part is, before it gets any better
We’re headed for a cliff
Then in the free fall I will realize
I’m better off when I hit the bottom

And the worst part is, before it gets any better
We’re headed for a cliff
Then in the free fall I will realize
I’m better off when I hit the bottom
now this is the accoustic version … orgasmic!

As a girl seeing her dad struggle with paying the bills and realizing life is not what it is or what you thought… It’s hard. Seeing your idols struggle and get frustrated and realizing they don’t have it together is hard. To feel like you’re working towards a goal that is sooo far out of sight you feel like it’s not even there? I know this song. I live this song. I am so passionate and the way Hayley sings I feel her passion too. SEEING HER LIVE? amazing!
now, WE GO TO fall out Boy. I know they’re no t a band anymore. And to most they are “poseurs” or “sell outs”. But I don’t think that. I think they got famous because of “Sugar” and they got the money they deserved. Being as I was a fan since they began back in like 02 or 03 I have been there since the beginning. I know what it’s like to grow and change and that’s what they did as a band and a lot of die hard, old school, fans didn’t like how they transcended. I really liked their new stuff. Not as much as the old because the old was when I was this crazy suicidal, emu, cutter, and I was all they’re singing my life! But I still appreciate those songs today seeing how they shaped my adolescence in a way that I can appreciate beautiful, emotional, lyrics. Whether it be happiness or sadness. Even anger. Oh, man. these lyrics:
“Empty another bottle and let me tear youth to pieces this is me wishing you into the worst situations I ‘m the kind of kid that cane’s let anything go but you wouldn’t know a good thing if it came up and slit your throat.”
My heart is the worst kind of weapon:
Like seriously? I have unbridled passion, love, hate, and so much anger in me I love this lyric with my very soul. I think my thirst for revenge also makes me love this lyric. I have been hurt so many times it’s hard to just let it go. I never let anything go. so THOSE ARE MY TIPPY TOP FIVES. judge AWAY.. but I HAVE EXPLAINED… How I feel and my reasons.
