Everyone who knows me somehow know that I’m not really a fan of rock music or bands. Lately I have been pretty bored with my playlists so I asked for help. I was introduced to a band called Mayday Parade. From the first song I heard (Terrible Things), I was hooked.
This band has awesome lyrics and they’re special. Nothing like the dance songs of these days that has no meaning.
So I’ll sing a melody
And hope to God she’s listening
Sleeping softly while I sing
And I’ll be your memories
Your lullaby for all the times
Hoping that my voice could get it right
They have released three studio albums and two EPs. A Lesson in Romantics (2007), Anywhere But Here (2009) and Mayday Parade (2011) were the albums. Tales Told by Dead Friends (2006) and Valdosta (2011) are the EPs. Valdosta The songs have long titles also which is unusual for example ‘If You Can’t Live Without Me, Why Aren’t You Dead Yet?‘ (one of my favs) and ‘Without the Bitter the Sweet Isn’t as Sweet‘.
I don’t have all the albums yet, but I will get them. My favorite songs are ‘I swear, This time I Mean It‘, ‘Miserable At Best’ and ‘Terrible Things’.
