“Whenever something goes right, something goes wrong. And it’s been this way too long!”
Co-sign. I feel this at least once a day, and some days even more. This song captures that feeling perfectly. But I feel like a super-noob because I can’t remember the name of the song. I could look it up on my iPod, but I don’t want to.
Have a good day.
Fireworks’ song “Life Is Killing Me” from their album Gospel has some lyrics I can definitely relate with:
“My heart feels young, my body feels old,
my mind just feels like it’s trying to please them both.”
I feel this everyday when I have to work instead of write. Or go to the bank instead of paint. Or apply for a job instead of make music. The lower back pains, headaches, and sore bones don’t help either.
Well I guess this is growing up. I’m trying to find a balance. (lyrics from other songs I wish I’d wrote)
I love both of their new albums. Fireworks’ latest being Gospel, and The Wonder Years recently (today) released Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing. While TWY may be winning the award for longest album name I actually prefer Fireworks’ album a bit more. They’re both great pop/punk albums, there’s no arguing that. But my personal preference has me leaning more in favor of the boys from Detroit.
You should pick up both albums A) to support great bands that make great music and B) to let your ears have fun.
That is all,
P.S. While on the topic of pop/punk, Handguns’ Don’t Bite Your Tongue EP is good as well. It’s only seven songs, and it’s not as polished as the above mentioned albums. But it is definitely worth numerous listens and a shoutout, and not just because I follow Handguns on tumblr (and vice versa). Peace.
Right now I am loving:
Balance and Composure
Beastie Boys &
Hail Mary Mallon
Look up anything by the artists/bands listed above and you’ll be satisfied. Word.
