Friday Classic: Blink 182 – Stay Together For The Kids

I feel a bit weird about picking this one, seeing as I’ve never experienced what I can only imagine is a truly traumatising experience of watching your parents separate. The heartfelt sentiment behind the song is evident though, its what makes it such a wrenching piece and isn’t that what a good piece of music is all about?

Blink 182 released ‘Stay Together For The Kids’ back in 2001 and based on the constant stream of comments, its stayed in people’s minds since then. What’s lovely is that the band have managed to take their own advice and despite a couple of ‘solo’ projects (Angels&Airwaves and +44), the band are still together and are on tour in the US this September.

 

All together now ‘so here’s your holiday..’

Have a great weekend loves

(Anti) Valentines Day

So let’s be honest, if you’re reading this, you’re probably not spending Valentines with that special someone. I’m definitely not. Today I’ve been baking with a friend, spent a long time stuck on a delayed train trying to get in / out of London (story of my life really) and now I’m curled up alone on the sofa watching South Park.

For anyone who’s feeling the same as I am, here’s my pick of the best anti-Valentines songs.

 

Blink 182 – I Miss You

Don’t waste your time on me, you’re already the voice inside my head‘.

Sums it all up really. I find it hard to tell whether this is actually an unconventional love song, or an ode to a break up. Either way, it works pretty well.

 

Funeral For A Friend – Juneau

Yet I’m nothing more than a line in your book

One for anyone who’s feeling sorry for themselves. Now with the added comedy value of seeing FFAF back in the old flicky emo-hair days.

 

Papa Roach – She Loves Me Not

‘Fighting all the time, this is out of line, she loves me not, loves me not
Stuck in a relationship that’s gone bad?

 

Evanescence – Call Me When You’re Sober

How could I have burned paradise? How could I? You were never mine

This one’s for anyone who knows they’re better off alone. Or anyone who needs reminding of that. You’re too good for them anyway..

 

Well I hope that whatever you’re up to this evening, you’re having a good time.

Night guys,

RC xx
