Friday Classic – Funeral For A Friend ‘Escape Artists Never Die’

Possibly the inspiration for my never-ending search for a decent pair of stripey socks. Funeral For A Friend may have changed (quite drastically), from their early years, but this still remains one of my favourite songs. It might be emo, but its good emo!

For their new work, check out their new video for the absolutely stomping ‘Nails’ here.

Have a great weekend everyone!

(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,

New Music Monday – Funeral For Friend Album Sampler

Fact: Funeral For A Friend are a band that never disappoints. That’s why I’m pretty excited about their new album ‘Conduit’, coming out January 28.

Based on this sampler, it sounds like a return to the screaming days of old, combined with Matt Davies’ more mature songwriting that we’ve come to love. (Not to mention some really catchy hooks..)

Have a listen for yourself here:

If this isn’t enough for you, check out their new video for album track ‘The Distance’ here.
