Now Listening to... 🎧

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

Marianas Trench is back with a new song! This one sounds like something that would have come out of their Masterpiece Theater or Ever After album. It's a return to the sound and creativity that got me hooked on their music. Song preview won't do this song justice, you need to listen to the full track.

But what about all those voices in the night? Speaking all the things that keep me from a normal life But everything almost fits together right But in the end I don't belong inside a normal (Don't belong inside a normal) Ordinary life β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#MarianasTrench

Fates. An emo sounding track that came out in 2023? Love it.

I'm still avoiding the exit that goes to your old house Listening to Konstantine Like we did at seventeen But I know it's not helping me out

I wish I could let go & blame someone else I wish I could tell you that

I don't really wanna die But I don't wanna be alive Like I did when you were here I think I'm just scared to death That you'll always mess with my head Like you did when you were here β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#RealFriends

Surprisingly not one of their more popular songs. But in my opinion, this is one of the best song they've written. Love how it starts and ends. This is another one that needs to listened to, from start to finish.

There are eight billion people in this world Eight billion lives are changing Never felt so alone

Would you consider me in spite of this? I'm always the one who loses Would you make me better?

How? (How?) How? (How?) How will we make this work? Why (why) do you have to be so far?

It's all clear now I'm gonna keep you Like flowing water into forever

That look is all I need to get by Like living in some illusion I never felt so alive

I know that there will be flaws around us The silly wars that we'll be fighting Yes, I'll be fighting

How? (How?) How? (How?) How will we make this work? Why (why) do you have to be so far?

It's all clear now I'm gonna keep you Like flowing water into forever

It's all clear now I'm gonna keep you Like flowing water into forever Into forever Now I'll be the one who holds you, dear

There are eight billion people in this world Eight billion lives are changing And you're the one I need β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

I'm not country and don't usually listen to country music. But this song is too good to ignore. Love that catchy chorus and the lyrics (even if I can't relate).

I'm hallelujah hands high and friends in low places Red, white, and blue, and red-letter pages Back-row pew and front-seat Ford New King James and old King George I'm washed in the water and mud on the tires I'm Friday night lights and Sunday morning choir I'm prayers up to Heaven, roots down in Kentucky Made by God and country God and country β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#AnneWilson

Yes the title is long and weird, but the song is good!

They say that love is forever Your forever is all that I need Please stay as long as you need Can't promise that things won't be broken But I swear that I will never leave Please stay forever with me β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#SleepingWithSirens

This song came out more than 20 years ago now, so I consider it a #ThrowbackThursday track. It still sounds great today!

I am a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard Handful of complaints, but I can't help the fact that everyone can see these scars I am what I want you to want, what I want you to feel But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you, to just believe this is real

So I let go watching you, turn your back like you always do Face away and pretend that I'm not But I'll be here 'cause you're all that I got

I can't feel the way I did before Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored Time won't heal this damage anymore Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#LinkinPark

Beautiful sentimental music from I Belong to the Zoo. This song starts slow and builds up to a wonderful finish. It's one of those songs you want to listen from start to finish.

The word β€œSana” roughly translates to β€œShould have”. The gist of the chorus/song is something like:

You should have told me (you had someone else), so I wouldn't have expected us to end up together in the end. You should have told me (you had someone else), I would have let you go anyway, so you could be happy.

#IBelongToTheZoo

Beautiful cover by Boyce Avenue. Love the numerous chord changes in this song. The inflection in those subtle chord changes brings about different emotions. At one point the song sounds happy, then sad, then in awe, etc... They don't make songs like this anymore.

The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek There's nobody here, it's just you and me It's where I want to be But I hardly know this beauty by my side I'll never forget the way you look tonight β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#BoyceAvenue

Another one to add to the list of Papa Roach hits on this blog. Lyrics in the chorus are so simple, but it's the way the song is sung that makes it so good.

One last kiss Before I go Dry your tears It is time to let you go

Because days come and go But my feelings for you are forever Because days come and go But my feelings for you are forever β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#PapaRoach

Oh no I've caught the TWICE bug! I can't help it, this song is super catchy and fun to listen to.
