|Pop Rocks And Coke|
Been digging these Pop Rock/Pop-Punk albums lately. And drinking lots of soda, which in Texas is referred to as Coke no matter what flavor it is.
|1||Jimmy Eat World|
#'s 1 and 2 are on my actual 'digs' list currently. "Futures" is my favorite Jimmy Eat World album, hands down.
As if I need to keep talking about these guys. Wish they'd put out another album in this vein; I've already got "Futures" so I didn't need "Singularity."
I've actually been listening to all of their c.d.'s lately, but this one the most. I think 'Godspeed' is my favorite Anberlin song.
Viva La Vida
I don't even own this c.d.; I have to listen to it on YouTube and iheartmusic. Still, I love it, and if I make a "Best-Of" list at the end of the year, it'll probably be on it.
Lost And Gone Forever
Interesting band. Love some of the harmonies, and love the congo's. "Barrel of a Gun" has been constantly playing ever since I got this c.d.
|6||Get Up Kids|
Something To Write Home About
"There's room to believe--out of sight, out of mind, out of reach; start over...there's no way to begin..."
Mapping an Invisible World
I will continue to whore this band until someone else can give an honest opinion of them. They're relatively unknown, and this is their only full-length album, but they sound like they're veterans at the top of their game. I've been listening to this c.d. a bit more lately, thanks to this pop-rock phase I'm going through spearheaded by JEW and Mae. GREAT pop-rock band, IMO.
The Best Worst-Case Scenario
If you go to Tooth & Nail's website, you'll find the usual big bands (UnderOath, mewithout You, Anberlin, etc.)...but you also might find some great bands that hardly get any attention at all: Starflyer 59, Showbread, Far-Less, and these guys, among others. Aaron Sprinkle (the producer for a lot of those bands) fronts it, and they craft some nice, soft Pop-Rock stuff. "Carelessness," in particular, is an amazingly beautiful song IMO. They're coming out with a new c.d. soon, as well...can't wait!
|I wonder if the list title has been used recently by someone else?|
|saying pop is lame, unless you're a fossil.|
|you go to Texas tech?|
|citizeninsane - I do!|
|cool!...i go to SFA!|
|where rednecks and country music prevail!|
|LOL, I know how that goes! But there's a good mix of music out here if you know where to look (i. e. you have to sit through Hell Yeah to hear Fair To Midland)|
I know a few people from HS who went to SFA, but I don't know whether any of them are still there because we graduated in '05...
|it's called soda. freak.|
Futures is my favorite JEW album too.
|anything other than "soda" enrages me|
|haha...yeah....i know how that goes. im pretty much alone in my music taste around here. its either really bad rap or really bad country. ha!.... but its all good. ax'em jacks!|
|It usually goes something like this:|
-"You thirsty? I got Cokes in the fridge...."
-"Yeah, I am. What do you have?"
-"Dr. Pepper, Sprite and Orange Soda."
-"I'll take a D.P."
...and that's how that goes. I've never actually heard someone call it 'pop', though....'soda pop', yeah; 'pop', no.
And thanks, SnackaryBinx, for actually commenting on the music in the list....(also, thanks citizen for the convo ;-)...).
