There's a moment in time that's frozen in my memory. It was 2006, I was 18, studying abroad and experiencing a foreign country for a year. I had just met a self proclaimed punk boy and we bonded over Deja Entendu and Tell All your Friends. He spoke about Say Anything for a good 30 minutes without pausing to breathe. The thing is, I was already listening to Say Anything. But I had never heard anyone speak about Say Anything with such passion. So he shared their older albums and I fell in love with "Resounding." It was the first song that really made me love Say Anything. To this day, the memory is so clear to me, I can still remember exactly where I stood when I clicked "replay" and never stopped.
PS - due to religious observance, I am unable to attend a show on Friday nights.
