Music Log – 010

Highlight of the week is the clutch slipping on my Speed3. Bummer because I just got it back last week after having the front and rear brakes serviced. If it ends up needing a new clutch, well that will be expensive. Alas that is a fact of life when owning a car with 100,000 miles on it. As a precaution, I've switched to a Stage1 tune to lower max boost on the turbo and have taken to driving like a grandma; never going over 3000 RPM. Unfortunate, because boost season is upon us too. Anyway it's Friday, so time for another music log.

First song for today is “Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?” by The Offspring. As soon as you hear it, you'll know it's a song from The Offspring. Must be the singer's voice or the way they do vocal harmonies. They just have this unique sound on their tracks that is reminiscent of other bands from the 90s or early 2000s. Just like how you know a song is from Red Hot Chili Peppers or from Incubus. The Offspring almost sounds like they've grown up in this song though.

Second song is “Fall Apart” from Every Avenue. Every Avenue is probably best known for their song “Tell Me I'm A Wreck”, which is a hilarious and awesome song at the same time. This song though I only heard this year and it's a good one too. We need more bitter songs like this hah!

I want you to fall apart like I did You to hurt for all of this All the pain you put me through I wanna hear you say I don't deserve you Fall apart like I did You to hurt for all of this All the pain you put me through I wanna hear you say I don't deserve you Fall apart

Last song for today is from a relatively unknown band. The song is “This One's For You” by Thousand Thoughts. I found the song through the Discover Today playlist on Spotify. This is a powerful song, made so by the way their vocalist sings. He has this deep voice that I normally wouldn't expect to come from a band's front-man, but he puts it to good use in this song. The way the song almost stops in the bridge and then the vocalist almost wills the song back to life, that is pretty awesome. That part of the song always gives me frisson. Depending on what you're going through in your life, this can be a love song or even a spiritual song. This is just a great song and I love the lyrics too!

So put your trust in my arms And send your fears to my heart Lay to rest the pain With my hand Looking into your eyes I see past where you hide No matter how hard you Try to deny
