This week’s Playlist Thursday is very fitting. Teenage Angst is the name of the game, this week.. & between moving away from my hometown after being back for a little over a month, and my general mood.. Between the nostalgia and the pent up agression. Teenage Angst is probably where I’m at right about now
New to Playlist Thursdays? Here’s how it works: Every week our good pal Pavement Runner has a new theme. Each week you pick three songs that fall into the general theme of the week. Something old. (A song 5+ years old) Something current (Something released within the last year. For some of these themes, obviously its a stretch) Something to Consider ( The wild card. Any song you want to feature here)
This weeks theme, like I said earlier. Teenage Angst. With last week having been Songs that Remind You of Childhood, Teenage Angst is a no brainer to come next! What songs remind you of those teen years?
Title: You Oughta Know
Artist: Alanis Morissette
Side Note: oh alanis…. The definition of angst here. Circa…. 1995? Such a great song right here.
Quotable: And I’m here to remind you Of the mess you left when you went away. It’s not fair to deny me Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
SOMETHING CLASSIC (cheating again here)
Side Note: Good grief, do I love everything Radiohead. No… Anything Thome York has touched. I love that lazy eye, creepy lookin dude. So insanely geniusly (we’ll pretend that’s a word..) talented. Every album they’ve produced has been a completely different genre from the last. There is no denying it though.. this song is 100% angsty
Quotable: You’re so fucking special… I wish I was special. But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo. What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here.
SOMETHING TO CONSIDER:
Title: Jude Law & The Semester Abroad
Artist: Brand New
Side Note: Wow, second week in a row Brand New made an appearance on Playlist Thursday. As you can see, Brand New really had an influence in my music appreciation as a teen. They grew with me. The album this song is from was their first album, Your Favorite Weapon came out when I was in my young teen years. Then in high school they came out with Deja Entendu which was a little bit more mature. Then when I had just graduated I think? Is when they came out with The Devil & God are Raging Inside of Me (my fav album of theirs). A super talented, and mature album with an entirely different sound. I’ve seriously grown up while this band has grown up.
Quotable: So tell all the English boys you meet, about the American boy back in the states. The American boy you used to date. Who would do anything you say.
What songs remind you of your angsty teen years? Come on.. We all had them
