Off The Record – Magic Of The Music Video Special – Kids In The Street, The All-American Rejects

This year, we launched a brand new set of articles called The Magic of The Music Video which looks at videos that have inspired me as a Video Editor. Well, I thought I would bring that article to life in more ways then one by celebrating certain albums that some of those singles have come off of. Why do this you ask? Well, you may know the songs but may of never actually listened to the albums so welcome to this section of this feature that will happen throughout the year.  In September we featured The All American Rejects so today we are looking at today was the home of Walk Over Me Kids In The Street

Someday’s Gone

This is the opening song to the Kids in the Street album and in classic All American Rejects fashion, it is catchy and really welcomes you in a warm way to the album that lies ahead. It has the classic AAR vibe and will make any fan happy to be listening. If you are new to the band this song really highlights old riffs that are used throughout their music right from the beginning.


This is one of the slowest songs on the list but also stands out a lot on the album due to the use of string instruments. The lyrics are powerful and the melody that intertwines in and out of the song create a beautiful song.

Heart Slowing Down

This song has an electric sound to it with a heavy bassline and beat to create this really interesting composition in the song. The song is one of the slower ones on the album but it also one of the most interesting. The chorus is melodic really breaks up the intense lyrics in the verse. It is a song that could easily sit in a musical of some sort as there is so many elements to it that make it a really nice song. There is also a really fun guitar solo that is slightly distorted near the end.

Bleed Into Your Mind

This song opens with elements on an acoustic song which makes it a really nice position on the album to break it up. The song relies on unusual sounds from instruments you wouldn’t expect to create this metaphor of ‘bleeding into your mind’. It is a really interesting song to listen to and the music makes you really focus on the lyrics and the tempo.
