I can't believe Relient K - Forget and not Slow Down hasn't gotten more love, what an INCREDIBLE record. It took me a little bit to fully be able to absorb it, but as soon as the light bulb went off I fell in complete love. I'm pretty sure I had that record spinning in my car for over a year straight ahaha.
No list can be complete without:
FOB - Take this to your grave
Blink 182 - Time to break up (I can't believe no one has listed this yet unless im mistaken)
Blink 182 - Toypaj
TBS - TAYF
TSL - Say it like you mean it
Valencia - Dancing with a Ghost
A&A - We dont need to whisper
Dashboard - the places you have come to fear the most
Mae - Everglow
JM - Everything in transit
Acceptance - phantoms
Yellowcard - Paper Walls/ Only One
I used to listen to Reggie & The Full Effect's "Megan 2K2 (Even Thought It's 2K3 Now)" on repeat when I was sad about a girl. Not a particularly sad song lyric-wise, but the music just sounds plodding and heart-wrenching.
Am I wrong to assume every woman is just like you?
You fall in love so you can wear a dress,
You wed to ensure your peers are impressed.
But I am wrong if I say "I do". I'd be lying to you.
I'm bored with your friends and sick of your moods,
I'm tired of selling "I love you too".
I am wrong.
Am I wrong if I lose my faith?
If I forget about and miss your birthday?
You're a dead-end job I hate,
A dingy apartment I can't afford to pay,
I am wrong, but when I get home
I know exactly what I'm going to do,
I'll say "mom, I know life is hard,
but I love you and I know dad loves you too"
I can't be wrong.
Am I wrong if I stretch the truth?
Can we just go back to what we're used to?
I'll never be your groom, I won't hold your hand like you want me to,
Am I wrong if I don't care where you go or who you're meeting there?
You'll never be my bride, I can't have some kid ruining my night,
I am wrong.
