Music Log – 007

Time for another music log because it is Friday. I deem this the Oh, Weatherly edition. This is a new band that I have recently discovered in Spotify. They seem to be fairly new, the band was formed back in 2015. Their bio on Spotify lists them as an alternative/rock band, but IMO their songs have a hint of emo in them, at least the ones in this log.

First up is the song “Without my Ring (I Think I Want You)”. I do not know what they call this in the music industry, but this was a clever remake of their own original “I think I Want You” song. What I love about this song is the story; this song is about a guy trying to resist the temptation of another woman, because he is already married. From the lyrics it sounds like they obviously had a past, but they didn't end up together. I don't think a lot of songs cover this kind of narrative where someone is trying to stay faithful to their partner.

And here is the original “I think I Want You” song.

Second song is “We're Doing Fine (Dark of the Night)”. Similar to the songs above, this is a remake of the original “Dark of the Night” song. This song has some great lyrics like:

You got me fighting on the front line You're the weight around my legs always puling me down I'm trying for the last time Cause you were never there when I started to drown

And this:

I was never really good at goodbyes The sunsets starting to die Cause I keep saying that I can make this right I'm nothing that I wanted to be It's taken so long to see It's me and the dark of the night And we're doing fine

And this:

I burn like a star To show you the way I'll bury my heart Cause it can carry the weight

Does that sound emo enough for you? Or in the old days I guess they would call this sentimental. Either way, I love it!

Here is the original “Dark of the Night” song.

Happy Friday everyone!
