  • Music:

Okay, I kind of like this record.

I realized a few days ago that strangely enough, Blink 182's music has had an odd emotional parallel with my life for a lot of years.

They started out making silly stupid fun music at a time when I was having a lot of silly stupid fun in my life. The only song I ever really performed well when doing karaoke was All The Small Things, and that was the first song on my going-out-drinking CD.

Their music and my life were dotted even then with serious moments though. When my cousin Adam shot himself at the age of 17, Blink had just released an album with a song on it called Adam's Song. This is no joke:
I never thought I'd die alone
I laughed the loudest who'd have known
I traced the cord back to the wall
No wonder it was never plugged in at all
I took my time, I hurried up
The choice was mine, I didn't think enough
I'm too depressed, to go on
You'll be sorry when I'm gone

the rest of the eerily accurate lyrics, and the rest of this post in which I pontificate, philosophize, and pimp some amazing new musicCollapse )
