Drake, I was wondering if you could tell me exactly where and what the bottom is to you? Because all the facts show that your bottom wasn’t that low at all. In fact, your bottom was so great, that this song is seemingly irrelevant in this case. Shoppers Drug Mart isn’t that bad, except for the fact that you were on Degrassi. And my mom and I fight all the time, that doesn’t mean that I am at the bottom, nor did I start from the bottom, so this part is also irrelevant. You grew up in Forest Hill, which is a much better neighbour hood than I grew up in. As a fellow Toronto Resident, I can vouch for this. Please Drake, define the bottom for me. Cause your bottom just seemed great!
Moving on, this is actually a very catchy song that has not left my head since I’ve heard it (despite my rant). I think his rapping is actually good in this song. I like Drake, I have both of his albums, and I have been pleasantly impressed. I am impressed with this song, I don’t hate it, but I do not think that the lyrics are relevant.
The whole Shoppers Drug Mart Scene with the 2 guys and the girl was hilarious though. I loved it!

Now, I feel as though this blog will come under excessive scrutiny if I do not even blog one post about a My Chemical Romance song. They had a good run; a long 12 year run. But like all things in life, it had to come to end. Why do all good things come to an end? That’s a question (or song) for another time. So, In commemoration of the disbandment of one of my favourite bands, I shall write about one of the songs that not only foreshadows this event, but made me cry from its lyrical beauty.
This song is about fighting against the opinions of others and becoming your own person. Its about rising above all the shit that’s probably in your life and becoming strong, loud, and powerful like a Parade (get the analogy?). This song is also a good song to listen to when honouring the history and success of the band as this was one of their most successful songs and it is just the right song to say…Goodbye? Maybe, we don’t know yet, but for the time being, enjoy the song, cry, and maybe even dance around…because at the end of the day…we’ll carry on, and so will their music and legacy.
Well, here I am again with another James Vincent McMorrow song. If you haven’t guessed already, then I shall make the obvious visible to you. He is defiently one of my favourite artists so when he decided to grace the music industry with a second album look out for additional song reviews of his music. Now on to the actual song itself (which you have probably already heard on Teen Wolf)
As the glorious talent that is James Vincent McMorrow, this song touches your heart as it sounds like a simple, yet flawless lullaby. It kind of reminds me of Brahms Lullaby a bit, doesn’t it? Ok moving on… The lyrics of this song paint a beautiful scenery (like most of his music usually does). The guitars in the background truly add to the beauty of the song and set the scenery of the whole thing. This song is about him wishing that someone is not late from saving him from his death, but the feel of the song takes away from the darkness that it actually presents…and that’s why its just so good. So, enjoy this song, and try to feel at some sort of peace when you do. Listen to it before bed, it really will put you to sleep. Like a said before, it reminds me of Brahms Lullaby.
Remember this pretty song that came out a few years back but its still regarded as one of the cutest love songs of our generation? Hey There Delilah by the Plain White Tees is a song about how distance doesn’t necessarily affect the strength of love. The song is basically an acoustic ode to the love that a boy has for his love. It is a hopeful song. It is just beautiful.
To start off, I am surprised that it has taken me this long to blog about a Kings of Leon song. They are my favourite band of all time and their music is just so beautiful that at times, it has brought tears to my eyes. This song is one that I can especially relate to. I think that this song is actually the most painful and depressing song to ever have to listen to, although it has been able to retain a certain beauty to it that shows its artistic value. Closer is a song about heart ache and the inevitability of loss. We all loose love, but its how we react to and interpret the loss that makes it even more significant to each of us. This song also alludes to the loneliness that is felt after they lose the one that they love. They are alone without the one that they love. They’re heart and soul have been taken from them. They feel as though they are burning at the stake. You can sense an incoming death, whether it be metaphorically or physically, but it is there looming over the whole song. The background music accentuates the song’s words and meaning in itself and creates the beautiful darkness that Closer is. Although this song may bring tears to your eyes once you understand it like I did, it will become one of those songs that you just have to return to every time you feel heart ache and despair.
