a few nights ago, i had a song stuck in my head and i only knew a few lines from the song. for some odd reason, i had these few lines fused with another song by brand new so i had it mistaken for being an old school brand new track. i looked for the track so i could play it on itunes, but couldn’t find it. by then, i had completely forgotten what was stuck in my head. bummed, i tried to forget about it, but i couldn’t shake it off. since then, i had been asking myself what was it that i was singing. as luck would have it, it shuffled up on my ipod. turns out, the real song was “put you on” by four year strong. now this makes me feel embarrassed because it’s not like me to confuse both bands at all. they sound nothing alike. it also pains me to say this, but i haven’t been listening to four year strong as much lately. the truth is, ever since they kicked out josh lyford, it hasn’t been the same. he was my fave and it bums me that i never had the guts to ask him for a picture. at least i got to talk to him when i saw them with thursday at new jersey. but without him, the band has been pretty boring. i still wanna see them. i still love them. but it’s just not what i fell in love with.
i could rant on and on about how it’s different now, but i’ll just stop here. i still support them after all.
also, i need to go see foxfires asap.
I don’t understand, Four Year Strong. You kicked out the synth but you have songs with keyboards/piano =[
More information on the Four Year Strong side of things when I hear it.
hey maybe then fys and blink-182 can do a usa tour in massachusetts. it would be epic. josh will have to come back for that
set your goals - echoes
i’ve always loved this song and have always been a fan of the positive message behind it. today it has a whole new meaning to me. this song and “one step at a time” by four year strong are not just gonna be positive songs anymore, but they’re going to represent my grandfather. i’m sorry i didn’t get a chance to see you one last time, but i’m glad for every opportunity i got to talk to you over the phone, even if i never really had anything to say. i’m going to miss sitting at the table as your little girl, watching you play solitaire, and cutting the deck with you. i’ll never forget the time when i was in kindergarten, and you got me in trouble by messing up my homework by highlighting all the first letter of each word blue. my teacher yelled at me. i will never forget when you were convinced that a cat is green because you were color blind. these little things always made me smile at the end of the day, and i’ll cherish these memories.
i’m going to miss you so much yehyeh. i wish i wasn’t in massachusetts while you were miles away in malaysia. but wishes can’t do/won’t do anything. i can only move on. but “i will keep pieces of you alive in me.” <3
i will stand alone. i will learn from this, i will. i will mourn the loss, and i will be stronger.
i faintly recall that one of the guitarists or the bassist from set your goals was not really a fan of a day to remember. since then i’ve always wondered if syg would ever consider going on a tour with adtr. i know that musicians’ taste don’t necessarily influence their tour set up, but i’m sure it does sometimes. nevertheless, my hopes are back up today after i watched adtr’s new video for “all i want.” matt and jordan from syg are on it. it’s a win to me.
for all i know they prob did tour together before. warped tour or festivals don’t count.
now if i can only get fys, adtr, and syg to tour together. my life will be complete. <3
a loss for words - i want you back (feat. dan o’connor and alan day of four year strong) [cover of jackson 5]
i was having a pretty rough day, but this song just made it 10x better, so of course i have to share. go figure that a loss for words and four year strong would make all the bad things go away.
