helping my Monday morning no ends
not even for the Davey bit, just for all of it. So good. Never gets old I LOVE IT.
just for the way he says 'straight'
the chorus to this http://youtu.be/YCG_yP5MsMc?t=47s has always, ALWAYS reminded me of not only J.E.W. but A Praise Chorus. Even if unknowingly, he nicked it right?
I always want to song 'heeeere toniiiiiight' at the end of the chorus of Saturday Superhouse (after the 'you're not the lucky ones' bit)
few other songs have that guileless, youthful energy. And it's so motivational - it unfailingly makes me believe that anything's possible. And I love the production (on this, and the whole album), it sounds so fucking chunky.
And yeah, the Davey Von Bohlen backing vocals, which I didn't fully appreciate when I was 15 but I definitely appreciate now.
reminds me of a really special time in my life, seems endlessly nostalgic
the same day they played main stage. so good.
the best song that isn't on clarity, and isn't 23
I remember being a drunk/stoned blubbering mess the second time they played it. And not being the least bit ashamed.
That whole day was magic. Biffy opening with Bodies in Flight, Interpol closing with PDA...
was anyone else introduced to this song by this Kerrang compilation?
forgotten how great this song is!
Floods of nostalgia just from those opening hi-hats counts.
this was the moment emo exploded
Don't don't, don't let's start
Why did we ever part?
that does it for me
It evokes such great nostalgia; first love, kissing and sexual adventure, September 11, my first set of exams, becoming a scout leader... and despite that I can objectively look back on the album and say that yes I was totally in love with a classic record of our time.
I was too busy slamming tequilas and touching up girls in the student union. EMO LAD.
But yeah, one of the few records from that period of my youth that I reckon would easily hold up without the benefit of nostalgia.
all teenage makeout parties and friends getting drunk for the first time and awesome, awkward unrequited lust. And exams. And playing in terrible bands, skateboarding and smoking hash.
I cant listen to Bleed American without feeling sad and nostalgic.
fancying a boy who didn't fancy me back, getting stoned, playing THPS, getting my first guitar.
Along with everything post-Bleed American with the exception of SOMST.
working at a fast-food joint, a co-worker was trying to get me to agree about the genius behind the line, 'crimson and clover, over and over'... so of course I went right out and bought it and agreed completely. Still my favorite song on the album.
it's utterly wonderful.
OUR HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET, WHY DID WE EVER MEET?
Gonna blast it on the way home.
that it's the chorus from Why Did We Ever Meet by the Promise Ring? Sung by the guy who wrote it...
At Rock City.
Davey V-B came on stage to sing the refrain. Good times.
