Now onto Playlist Thursday!

I am linking up with Pavement Runner today. I LOVE his music posts, mostly because I am always looking for new running songs to add to my playlist, but because of the format of his posts.

Today’s theme is: Teenage Angst, songs that remind us of our teenage years, whether good or bad. I went with another sub-theme, Andrew McMahon, he has been the front man for Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin. He also is a Leukemia survivor, and even started a foundation, and since this weekend is all about LLS, I think I owe him a tribute.

SOMETHING OLD
Artist: Something Corporate
Title: Hurricane
Side Note: I saw Something Corporate twice on their reunion tour in 2010, the Philly show was quite possibly one of the best shows I have ever been too. (So that’s the video)
Quotable: Stand up don’t make a sound. Your ears might bleed. There are sweet fluorescent enemies. That live inside of me. The world moves faster than I knew. Not fast enough to not creep up on you. And the space we put between. So pull me under your weather patterns. Your cold fronts and the rain don’t matter. Because the sun burns what I needed.

SOMETHING CURRENT
Artist: Jack’s Mannequin
Title: Caves
Side Note: Another live video, this one from when they performed with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra‚Ķone of my first review posts was reviewing this. This song is about Andrew’s struggle with cancer. Holy tears.
Quotable: I fought a war to walk a gang plank. Into a life I left behind. Windows leading to the past. Think it’s time I broke some glass. Get this history off my mind

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER
Artist:Something Corporate
Title: Konstantine
Side Note: This song is about 9 minutes long, and if you are a longtime fan of SoCo you know this one. The one they NEVER play. But they played it on the reunion tour. I mean what is an angst palylist if there is no song that boy sings about a girl? This was at the live show in Boston!
Quotable: This is because I can spell confusion with a K and I like it. It’s to dying in another’s arms. And why I had to try it. It’s to jimmy eat world. And those nights in my car. But this time I’m alone, and I don’t see those stars. I’m not your star? Isn’t that what you said. What you thought this song meant. You thought this song meant

Have you ever heard of Andrew or these bands? WHat do you think?
