A Music Blog (Because WHY NOT)
Updated January 12th, 2012 at 3:16 AM by bobandbill
A better reason is a month back on irc Andy (ShiningRaichu) was all 'I like when you link to music' or something because I was being obnoxious and doing just that in a channel, and I said 'Maybe I should do a blog of random songs I like and think everyone else should listen to' and he said 'YES'.
So here goes I guess? Every so often I'll do just that and post the youtube video (and probably alternate links. Because youtube sucks with the 'lol your country is BANNED from watching this video'). Also lyrics (if the video doesn't display them) because I like being able to read them when listening so I figure maybe someone else is like me. =p Maybe even do a few songs or stuff I'm not exactly a big fan of if I just want to point something out.
Share your music likes too in comments (e.g. if this song reminds you of another song by all means mention it) because I like to hear new things, and when you're in Australia you tend to miss out on a lot of other bands. And because we all know the majority of radio sucks in any country. Maybe your suggestions may even get shamelessly reused by me! Besides it's as good a reason as any to use blogs on PC again.
So here's a song that was stuck in my head for a good while when the blog idea was about in the first place! 'Those Thieving Birds/Strange Behaviour' by Silverchair, in a fashionably pink video. Fellow aussies may cringe a bit at the word Silverchair because it's That Band with that One Song (Straight Lines) that is Played To Death by the radio stations, and I don't blame them, but I'm fairly sure this got very little airtime and it's a darn good song imo! (Why Radio Sucks #1: One song or two does not a band make, guys!) Ending is a bit slow and I'm not the greatest fan of the part following 'Only eat with uncles' but oh well, no song is perfect. Slow beginning, speeds up to a more upbeat tune, and then concludes like it begun. Good for chilling to and the middle bit is amazing in its own right too, making the build up worth it. Well, imo anyways but why not judge for yourself?
The lyrics are quite good in this. For those who want to get possible meanings, the singer had issues keeping his long-distance relationship/marriage together with his wife. Pretty evident in lines with "I'll hold on to the jewellery, like staple-strapped clenched fist and tongs", and when you consider the song title in itself (what would birds be thieving, eh?). Then there's smaller things - swans (mentioned right at the start) usually for instance mate for life. That and another thing I like is that the song tells an actual story. Not something along the lines of 'I'm so hot *****es all the girls/guys want me' or 'I'm in love you're so bewderiful' or 'SHE LEFT ME D=' at any rate. That's what many a good song does imo - not only sound good but have something worthwhile to say or ponder.
Now to figure out what song to do for the next one, oi.
