Young Guns


These guys are just amazing I heard one song then searched them on YouTube and watched all there videos, and fell in love with almost all of them. It all started with “Bones” heard it on the radio and now I’m hooked. They don’t have nearly the amount of views they deserve on YouTube.

Lyrics

Down under the night sky
I lay in wait
Praying to whoever will listen to me.
I’d fashioned my own cross,
Been crushed by it’s weight
There’s no stronger message
Then dirt in your face.

I’ve seen down the end of the road
Now i deal in a different story, oh
And i will never go back again
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I’ll do this on my own. (o-o-oh bones, bones o-oh)

They say the spirit’s willing
But the flesh is always weak
Well I found everything i needed right beneath my skin -oh

I’ve seen down the end of the road
Now i deal in a different story, oh
And i will never go back again
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I’ll do this on my own.

The list of hits just go on from there

Stitches

Lyrics

Every hour is a season
Every minute lasts a day
So I sit here picking stitches
I find comfort in decay
How I long to fill my lungs

So tell me how does it feel to,
Breathe air cold and clean
‘Cause I’ve been living on my knees since I was seventeen
Thought I was safe beneath the smoke,
But even under cover I still choke

Well my wings were clipped and even if they weren’t
(Even if they weren’t)
I’ve not the guts to fly and leave behind the Earth
(Leave behind the Earth)
There’s no poetry in my soul,
(Poetry, in my soul)
Just a list of lies I’ve told,
(There’s just lies, that I’ve told)
And I don’t know how much longer I can hold on.

Well my wings were clipped and even if they weren’t
(Even if they weren’t)
I’ve not the guts to fly and leave behind the earth
(Leave behind the Earth)

Weight of the World

A continent of doubt weighs heavy on mind,
How long can my brittle bones bend,
Before they yield and snap?

I don’t wanna know, ’cause I’m so scared,
It’s not gonna get easier than this,
Because it’s too much to bare my darlin’, the weight of the world,
And I would carry it for you,
But please don’t ask me to because the
Weight of the world is a burden I can’t bare.
Is a burden I can’t bare.

Maybe it’s gravity, that pulls her to my chest,
Not the fear that she is the source of what little strength I’ve got left,

I don’t wanna know, ’cause I’m so scared,
It’s not gonna get easier than this
Because it’s too much to bare my darlin’, the weight of the world,
I would carry it for you,
But please don’t ask me to because the
Weight of the world is a burden I can’t bare.

My horizon lies a jagged line,
Ooh I can clearly see,
The mountains that I’ve yet to climb,
I’ll get there if it kills me.

Learn my Lesson

Lyrics

I am a wavering candle light
I remain but I’m ever slight
Through all my years
I sit
In my room in the fading light
Righting back all my wrongs tonight
‘Cause I’m still here

Boarded up all the doors
And I swallowed all the keys
I’m still haunted by
All the things I’ll never be

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart’s a heavy burden
So I take (I take)
I don’t wait (don’t wait)
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I’ll take
Won’t wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight

I
Never knew it could be so cold
But I burnt all the things I used to hold so dear
Still I fight (I fight)
With my pen in my hand held tight (held high)
Writing protest songs tonight
‘Cause I’m still here

Boarded up all the doors
And I swallowed all the keys
I’m still haunted by
All the things I’ll never be

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart’s a heavy burden
So I take (I take)
I don’t wait (don’t wait)
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I’ll take
Won’t wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight
Woah, woah

I’ll get off my knees and fight
Kick down the doors let in the light tonight
Tonight

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart’s a heavy burden
So I take (I take)
I don’t wait (don’t wait)
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I’ll take
Won’t wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight
Woah, woah

I will live and learn my lesson

I have fallen in love with music again….


YouTube surfing has brought me many things and some I regret watching the second I turn it on and some I fall in complete love with. There has been a few surprising artists catch my attention that I think have tremendous talent and have not been publicized nearly as much as artists that will not be named… you all know who they are.

We have all been guilty of enjoying a teenybopper song here and there but honestly we weren’t blown away by your talent nor were we captured by the amazing heart-felt lyrics of your song, we just heard a catchy beat and the same phrase you kept repeating 10 times in 2 minutes, what did you expect??? Tell me anything 10 times in 2 minutes and I bet I will remember it. But don’t worry it happens to the best of us… I like the Maroon 5’s Payphone song so I am not one to judge someone else’s taste in music, but I will expose whomever pushes play on these videos to a whole new side of music.

These are songs you listen to 10 times and are still hearing new lines you like or can relate to, these  songs feel like they are being sung from the heart not just for a TV screen. Even if there are rumors they didn’t write the songs or produce them whatever I am not here to trash talk people showing their raw talent, I am here to help them show it off. 🙂

So even if you this is not the music you are used to listening to, give it a chance it might shock you how much you enjoyed it.

This girl reminds me of the 60’s so bad …

Lana Del Rey (Elizabeth Woolridge Grant) Facebook

Full Version (10 Min Video)

This girl Birdy is only 15 years old when she is singing these songs if you don’t the song… fine …. but I think that her voice is amazing for 15.

Passenger … another great that has not been appropriately recognized

Can’t Believe it


There is actually some country songs that I think are worth sharing…. WHAT??!?! Didn’t I tell myself that I was not going to listen to some guy cry about his tractor, and his dog.

This guy is what i picture when I think of country music……

———————–>

These songs I stumbled across on the van ride to and from work. Since I ride in a vanpool I don’t get to decide what is going to be played on the radio. Good beat, great voices, not to twangy, and lyrics are something that anyone that has ever had someone special can relate to. What could go wrong there.

I Promise I will not be posting a lot of county but these ones were totally worth the 2 seconds it takes to throw a blog together. 😉

Josh Turner – Time Is Love

Kenny Chesney – Come Over

…..The women’s bathing suit in this video is just too awesome….

Enjoy!

Blue October- The Chills

Something a little more laid back but still very catchy

3 Doors Down – Every Time You Go

This one is much more upbeat sounds a little 80’s but still catchy as always

Hinder – All American Nightmare

The Fad


I know everyone is sick to death of asking or hearing this question but I have to ask…. What is up with this Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus obsession. Can people honestly look at themselves in the mirror  with a straight face and like their music?!?!?! I mean don’t get me wrong I am sure there is a market for maybe like 10-13 year old girls but there are not 700,000,000 girls ages 10-13 with access to internet , and like those artist. Now I am not trying to offend the people who gave J-bebs a cup of their blood but let be real who is seriously driving down the road singing Justin Beiber’s “Baby” song and sippin on their coffee???

Baby… Baby ….. Baby…..

I’m not one of those people who only listens to one kind of music and hates everything else, I listen to a wide range of music Alternative, Classic, and Punk Rock, Pop, Metal, R&B, Reggae, Rap, and even a few country songs (not to into the really twangy stuff).

Here are some but not all of the artists I listen to:

Breaking Benjamin

A Day to Remember

A Perfect Circle

Bruno Mars

The Beatles

The White Stripes

Sum 41

Green Day

Nickelback

Incubus

Linkin Park

Katy Perry

Tool

Anberlin

Tupac

Aaliyah

Ne-Yo

LMFAO

Seether

Creed

3 Doors Down

Three Days Grace

30 Seconds to Mars

Bob Marley

Killswitch Engage

 So you can see that I have a wide range of different people not all of them are the most popular bands and I am sure some of them have been made fun of with the same kind of intensity as Justin. Maybe I don’t get it and they are just way over my head, or maybe I have turned into my parents and I now hate all new music because it’s for the kids and all I hear is noise. I totally get having a stupid song stuck in your head but these guys are on the top charts. People can’t honestly tell me that there finger slipped and they clicked the wrong thing over a million times, or it got stuck in your head and you just had to listen to it once.

Nope. I don’t believe it. Don’t give me your excuses just tell me that we aren’t going to do it anymore. Please tell me this will be the last generation of crazy singers that make no sense and kinda scare us sometimes.

Hope this is the end of the fads…. if we are lucky everyone become hipsters and there will no longer be a “mainstream”….. I know I am thinking the same thing “and that’s if we are lucky?”

….Pure Awesomeness ….


I love music, all different kinds. I mostly listen to alternative rock I like chill beats and good lyrics. If you can say something to me in your song that I can relate to that makes all the difference. I don’t care if they are not the most popular band, I don’t care if they never had a top charts hit, if the song say something I wanted to say or say something in a way that I would have never thought of, then that is all that matters to me.  A lot of people can probably agree that music nowadays has really gone to shit. If you are a fan of rap or used to be a fan of rap you really know what I am talking about nothing they rap about anymore makes any since. the words that you do understand are the same “in da club”…. “gots a drink”… “slap a ho”….. “shake your ass.”

Rock music is never going to be the same after Emo wave unto the people. For example

If this is what rock music is going to be from now on I have no faith in humanity….. did he seriously say… “So I got my boots on, got the right ‘mount of leather And I’m doing me up, with a black color liner. ” WOW…. Nuf said….

 

Now something like this restores my faith in humanity…..
