Now Listening to... 🎧

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

The featured song for the month of May is “Ever After” by Marianas Trench.

There's a lot going on in this song that it is a little hard to describe it. If I had to name words, I would say rock, emo, cinematic, epic. You really ought to listen to this song in full. This song touches upon a number of the tracks you will run into when listening to the album. And about that album...

The album tells a story from start to finish. They even structured it in a way where there's no pause between tracks. If you are a fan of pop rock, pop punk, maybe emo pop, I think you'll find a lot to like in this album.

Overall, a great song and a really good album. Below is a preview to the album in case you are interested in hearing it.

It's cool how they structured this song. The chorus is a combination of the verses, or some of the verses are each a part of the chorus. Anyway, pretty cool and great sounding track.

Forgive me now For I have sold my soul for gold Washed up on shore A thousand miles away from home Just as I begin to settle in to these skin and bones, alone I find the answers to questions I have never known

Is there life beyond the grave? And will I make the same mistakes, day after day? There must be a better way

Running from time to try and keep myself alive Release my pride to keep from pushing the light aside Now as I begin to let this in I must keep the best in mind And remove myself from the things that are wasting my time

I know that one of these days I'll finally see you face to face at the golden gates Will you take me or will I fade into the grave? I know these words won't hold any weight But please don't turn away Don't turn away from me

Is there life beyond the grave? And will I make the same mistakes, day after day? There must be a better way I know that one of these days I'll finally see you face to face at the golden gates Will you take me or will I fade into the grave? Is there life beyond the grave? And will I make the same mistakes, day after day? There must be a better way I know that one of these days I'll finally see you face to face at the golden gates Will you take me or will I fade into the grave? ♪ ♫ ♪

All the lights and sounds that guide you Have burned out or faded away And the so called voice of reason Has turned out to lead you astray We can go through the motions Like we’ve done all along But if you’re minds made up I know that either way you’re gone

So say what you will Say what you want to It could be a lie And it’s alright Say what you will Say what you need to Cause there might not be a next time So tell me are you ready Are you ready To never again say what you will ♪ ♫ ♪

#Nural

Starting off with Monday with a good find...

I'm letting go Cause I can't take this anymore Since you broke my heart in two And now I know That you don't love me anymore So take my broken heart with you ♪ ♫ ♪

#EscapeTheFate

Ending the day with a great new find...

I won't wait here forever for something to change To weak to slather the ropes and the chains The doors are all locked now, won't get in this time Still trying to reach you, still standing in line

Listen to the words you sold me with all of that cold you found I tried to keep ever holding but we couldn't get the demons down I didn't even mind the blindness, I didn't even mind the cold Ain't nothing gonna stop me, I'm taking back the heart you stole

I feel like I'm falling all over again And the visions are blurry inside of my head Yeah, it makes me so sick that I wish I was dead Losing all control cause we're lost in Vertigo! ♪ ♫ ♪

#BridgeToGrace

Beautiful acoustic version of the original. And I so, so love the emo lyrics in this song. Beautifully poetic.

Hey there, shadow, Didn't seem to care at all when you watched me go. I know young love is just a dream, We were only seventeen, But you're the only love I've known.

So please just let me go if you're done 'Cause it's hope that kills this heart. So please set me free, kill the spark.

I've been gone from this world for what seems like millennia, Looking for nothing short of a miracle. I only ever wanted to come home. Please won't you let me go? When I have nowhere left I can run away Will you lie to me, tell me I'll be okay? Close my eyes and lay me in my tomb. Then pull the trigger and send me home.

So how did I get so far from my yesterdays? Another broken heart now just a memory. I should've left you in the dark, I should've left this awful town And never found out how to love.

So I don't wanna know about the things that you regret now that we're dead and over and done. Get away from me and leave my heart under the rug.

I've been gone from this world for what seems like millennia Looking for nothing short of a miracle I only ever wanted to come home, So won't you let me go? When I have nowhere left I can run away, Will you lie to me, tell me I'll be okay? Close my eyes and lay me in my tomb. Then pull the trigger and send me home. ♪ ♫ ♪

Time for another Friday chill track from DEPAPEPE.

#DEPAPEPE

Last song for today is another good find from a band I've never heard of before.

I save myself for you My faith is way passed due There is no remedy For a better me No song that I can write That'll bring you back to life I've tried and I have failed To no avail

Because time will always win And I'm so sorry

You're so far away, I'm here to stay I wait for the day that you will say Darlin', I'm coming home You're not alone ♪ ♫ ♪

#DeadGirlsAcademy

Now for a newer song... this a good find. Could have gone with much less shouting overall, but it is what it is. It does provide a great contrast for when the pre-chorus and chorus kicks in.

#DanceGavinDance

Let's do another #ThrowbackThursday piece. This song conjures up the scent of baby powder and hair gel. It brings back memories of waiting outside the gate of our house as a kid, waiting for a jeepney to pass by, so I can catch a ride to school.

Sometimes, if I'm early enough, I would even ride one that is driving away from school. It goes up a mountain, then loops back down and goes toward my school. It was a good way to pass the time.

The feel of the early morning breeze, this song blasting on the speakers, the excitement of meeting friends at school, those were good times.
