Now Listening to... 🎧

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

Still a really good song...

Hope dangles on a string Like slow spinning redemption Winding in and winding out The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in So mesmerizing, so hypnotizing I am captivated

I am Vindicated I am selfish I am wrong I am right I swear I'm right I swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed But I am cleaning up so well I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself ♪ ♫ ♪


Starting off Wednesday with this great track from Hollywood Undead.

It's times like this I feel I'm on the pavement It's like my heart's so numb Then I grab that book and turn the pages And see how far I've come

And just sing, sing like there's nobody watching Sing, sing like there's nobody watching Sing, sing like there's nobody listening Sing, sing like there's nobody listening Sing ♪ ♫ ♪


This one's a rediscovery... This is another really good track from Gin Blossoms that should be more popular. You'll find this gem at the tail end of their “Congratulations I'm Sorry” album.

Looking up I saw nothing But blue in the bluest sky And now it's creeping across my eye And going down in my mind, down in my mind I'm high and I'm hopeless So help me to get untied Fast asleep now I'm going blind Falling down in my mind, down in my mind Just fine Pretending all the while A competition smile ♪ ♫ ♪


Beautiful intro... the rest of the song ain't bad either.

And now everything's wrong It's been so long Am I the man that I promised to be Did I let you down, tarnish your crown Cause everything is wrong (wrong) Everything is wrong ♪ ♫ ♪


Don't be too hard on yourself. Give yourself a break from time to time. We are all human after all. The key though, is to not give up.

I woke up with the same dark feeling Head on the ground and my thoughts on the ceiling Another dream where the light is burning out

I don't know what to chase My hope is erased I look at myself and I don't know my own face I just got fixed and I'm already breaking down

How do I feel when my wounds aren't healing? Why do I stop when I start believing?

I must be doing this all wrong Should be happy but I'm searching for the reasons why Puts my head in overdrive I thought I had this figured out I should scream but I'm still searching for the voice I lost I guess I'm just human after all ♪ ♫ ♪


Awesome new find!

And when I'm gone when the seasons change It just feels wrong when you're so far away Cause what is home if you're not there with me What is air if it's too hard to breathe, yeah

Numb me up just like novocaine Running through my veins And I, oh I can feel it now Slipping away from everything but you Do you feel it too?

In a moment I feel so weightless I'm so in love with you I'm so lost in every single word That you say, every breath that you take So numb me up like novocaine ♪ ♫ ♪


We tried to fight for what we thought that we believed in Maybe it was all for nothing (I bet that it was all for nothing) So we drive 'cause we like to be alone There's nowhere for us to go There's nowhere for us to go

How can you think that any of this was easy With all the friends I've lost along the way?

When this is over, we're all getting older now And we all play a part in it Innocence is falling, can you hear them calling now? But I'll be by your side until the end ♪ ♫ ♪


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 ♪ ♫ ♪
