Every year in February I try to think of new things that I can discuss around the theme of love because let’s not be ignorant, it is that month AND it is a leap year – that’s meant to be special right?! Last year we celebrated the fact that the best things comes in twos anf looked at the word of Twoprov (not as couples but the way the comedy format is stealing and owning the stage), we have also looked at the comedy film and comedy as a whole! This year we head to the world of music.
Some of the songs I love are not necessarily my favourite songs, instead I find this is a sort of completely different topic all on it’s own. A song that I really love must do a few things to me – firstly make me smile because of the experience of listening to it whilst also making me feel a lump in my throat. All of these songs that I talk about over the next 29 days are songs I really do love and adore and I think their music construction, lyrics and song as a whole are wonderful.
At the start of this paragraph I said that these songs may not be my favourites – well that is true, whilst some may be ones that are, there are ones that are not but that does not mean I truly respect them as songs and these songs make me happy and sad at the same time I know they are in a completely different category and that is what the difference is.
Day 2 – Famous Last Words, My Chemical Romance
Why This song?
I adore the lyrics in this song – it is uplifting and brings out the fighter in anyone. The song is just so powerful and everytime that I hear this song I want to have it really loud to hear it in all of it’s glory. This is a true representation of a song I truly love. When it get to near the end and it goes quiet and starts to build up again that is when the song truly gets to me and the lump in my throat starts and it gets me a bit choked up every time.
Why do you love this song?
I find this song incredibly powerful right from the get go and that is why I love it – the melody is beautiful, the lyrics are so we written and as a whole it is phenomenal. I love this song because it is a huge pick me up sort of song ‘I’m not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this world alone’ – if you are having a bad day listen to this song. I have already mentioned that the ending chokes me up but also it is an amazing end to the Black Parade album. I can’t describe in words how amazing this song is, that is how you really define a song you love.
