I recently wrote an article about the joy of emo music, my passion for The Get Up Kids'Something To Write Home About and a few sentimental things about believing in your dreams and whatnot. Have a read of it here.
That's only present in you because you're 14 years old. For some people, 14 is the age that they retreat in to their basements for the rest of their lives to make an existence out of Mountain Dew and 4Chan. For others, 14 means finding new bands and discovering the beautiful world of the genres that Billboard doesn't cover. For me, 14 meant discovering The Get Up Kids. Something To Write Home About, to be precise.
Great writing. Had never heard of Old Gray, am listening to "wolves" right now. The apathetic-ish sounding gang-vocals bit sounds a tad like "Composing" by Boys Night Out. I remember being in art class my sophomore year in high school and hearing this song on a borrowed ipod. I was blown away instantly. I loved it. And, now, I'm loving Old Gray, too.
I've been recently getting in to some pioneering powerpop as of late. There's a lot of older, I'm talking 1970's here, stuff that's just splendid.
nicely written. i feel the same about 'something to write home about,' i remember walking all the way across my crappy australian hometown with one good record store when i was 15, to spend one of my first paychecks on buying the record. introduced me to a ton of other amazing music and is probably still in my top 3 albums of all time.
I love this. I remember when i would tell people I listened to "emo" and that "emo" was my style. Which would be followed up by me explaining just as you did, that no, My Chemical Romance isn't emo. No my hair doesn't need to be black and hanging in my eyes for me to be dressed emo, (i tried emulating Rivers Cuomo's appearance to a painstaking degree) Yet nobody understood. And slowly the My Chemical Romance kids took away the label of my favorite music and gave it a bad connotation.
