Listening To

"Jesus" - Brand New from the album, The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me

In honor of "throw back Thursday" and due to the generosity of my bffls (who probably isn't reading this) I've got a copy of this album on repeat in my car. Yes, I still use CDs because no, I do not have an aux cable hook up in my 2003 Escape. Deal with it.

Anyway, this particular song was the top single off the album, which released in 2006, even though I didn't know that until about two minutes ago. In fact, I didn't even know this album existed! I am a big fan of the first two albums - Your Favorite Weapon and Deja Entendu but the Daisy album dropped the ball for me so I fell out of love with Brand New for a bit. I am thankful to say our relationship has been rekindled. But I digress.

I can certainly understand why this song is so popular. The music is beautiful, but the lyrics resonate in a way that I imagine many can relate to. Even though the very specific words may not apply to all, certainly the feeling that we are both good and not is something we can all relate to. 

So happy #TBT everyone. Go pull out some music from high school and jam your little heart out.
