Now Listening to... 🎧

Follow along as I listen to music from genres such as rock, punk, emo, pop and everything in between...

Another masterful track from Marianas Trench. This is the last song in their Ever After album. And similar to the title track, this song touches upon other songs in the album. It is like multiple songs in one song. It's very nicely done. You definitely need to listen to this track in full.

And just like the title says, listening to this song after going through the entire album, feels like coming home from a storybook fairy tale. I'll leave you with the ending lyrics from the track...

Once upon a time This place was beautiful and mine But now it's just a bottom line There's no yellow bricks... And happily... Ever after we... Lived the end... ♪ ♫ ♪


Beautiful lyrics, beautiful song...

We would stand in the wind We were free like water Flowing down Under the warmth of the sun Now it's cold and we're scared And we've both been shaken Hey, look at us Man, this doesn't need to be the end

Just let me hold you while you're falling apart Just let me hold you and we'll both fall down

Fall on me tell me everything you want me to be Forever with you Forever in me Ever the same

Call on me I'll be there for you and you'll be there for me Forever it's you Forever in me Ever the same ♪ ♫ ♪


It's Thursday, so here's a really good #ThrowbackThursday song to listen to.

Is it fair to say that this is what emo sounded like in the 80s? Okay, maybe not. But man, check out these lyrics...

Once upon a time I was falling in love But now I'm only falling apart There's nothing I can do A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life But now there's only love in the dark Nothing I can say A total eclipse of the heart ♪ ♫ ♪


Call me up and break it off Now know that I am not enough Wish that I could have been better Like I said in all my letters

Keep me in the space between What you love and what you need Wish that I could go and get her Now I stand in awful weather (Now I stand in awful weather)

All that I ever wanted I wanna feel worth it Don't want to be worthless I wish that I could be All the people out of there The friends that desert them I wanna be perfect I wish that I could be Better, better ♪ ♫ ♪


Another good track from Dangerkids...

I've been waiting for so long For you to complicate me And I can't bear to watch these scars Turn into something breathing now Could you be the one that saves me From the nothing I've become? Or if you're done...

Throw me away Cause everything breaks We're someone's mistakes And I guess that nothing is changing Help, I'm just not myself, I'm caving You make me feel like I'm nothing worth saving ♪ ♫ ♪


There is a river, there is a refuge For all who come in need of help There is a river A holy place where the Most High dwells

Almighty God is our fortress He is with us, God is with us ♪ ♫ ♪


This is a perfect example, in my opinion of course, of what a modern rock song should sound like. There's no hardcore screaming to distract from the beauty of the song. Just clean guitar riffs, uptempo drums and great vocals. This song starts out kinda slow, but once the chorus kicks, it just takes off. And that instrumental with the guitars, pure aural bliss especially with a great sounding headphone. One of my favorite tracks from Sixx:A.M.

I, I bit down on my tongue to see if I could feel To see if I've been missing anything And I, I crystallized my lungs to show you they were real And waited for a sign that never came

If I'm not breathing, resuscitate my soul

Bring on the shame, bring on the pain Yeah, I know that I'm sick, give me some more I say yeah, we are the ill and the deranged Yeah, I know that I'm sick, give me some more ♪ ♫ ♪


I consider this one of the best pop rock songs to have come out of the 90s. I cannot believe it's not more popular in Spotify. Such a beautiful song. Love the guitar riffs, the bass, the lyrics, the melody. This is one of my all time favorite songs ever.

How can I find something That two can take Without stumbling as we Walk into our future's wake

I'm like a broken record That you can play Repeating as if it matters Everything I want to say

I'll be all right As long as it matters As long as you're here with me now ♪ ♫ ♪


If you're wondering who or what the singer is battling through in this song, it's one of his many phobias.

I see nothing in your eyes, And the more I see the less I like.

Is it over yet, in my head?

I know nothing of your kind, And I won't reveal your evil mind.

Is it over yet? I can't win.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what's left. I know that I can find the fire in your eyes. I'm going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me. You left a hole where my heart should be. You got to fight just to make it through, 'Cause I will be the death of you. ♪ ♫ ♪


As of 5/4/2021, these are the ten most popular songs on this site.

  1. Wind Beneath My Wings by RyanDan
  2. How Far I'll Go by Boy Hero
  3. Ho Ho Hopefully by The Maine
  4. Smile (Single Mix) by Sidewalk Prophets
  5. I'm Not Okay (I Promise) by My Chemical Romance
  6. Close The Distance by Go Radio
  7. O Holy Night by Go Radio
  8. Will You Still Love Me? by Chicago
  9. Amnesia by Boys Of Fall
  10. Peace Be Still by Hope Darst

Compared to the previous top 10 list from April 2021, “Close The Distance” by Go Radio went up 1 spot. So did “Will You Still Love Me?” by Chicago. And then “Adorable” by Artist vs Poet drops off the list altogether. It was replaced by a new entry to the top 10 list, “Amnesia” by Boys Of Fall.

I'm curious about who is keeping “Will You Still Love Me?” by Chicago on the list. Are there some oldies reading through this blog? Or maybe it is a new discovery for the younger generation?
