I'm going to see my second favorite band for the first time next week! I thought I'd mix it up and instead of doing a full Spotlight, I'm making a list of my favorite lyrics first, to show how stunning Tyler Joseph's lyricism is--it is, after all, the main aspect that reeled me in. And let me also mention that I originally had a list of over 80 of my favorite twenty one pilots lyrics from their four albums, but I'm gonna be cheesy and list 21 of them for now.
Hooray for finally doing Part 2 in this series! I've compiled a ranking of my top 15 favorite covers by my favorite band. They've covered many great artists and songs very well. Read Part 1 here if you missed my personal favorites list.
I've been putting this one off for a while, because Weezer is one of those bands that just has too many great songs and it was pretty hard to cut the list down to a mere 15. I tried to pick songs I love that less people know, so while I absolutely love all the singles like "I Want You To" and "Say It Ain't So" and classics like "My Name Is Jonas", they won't be on this list. Maybe another list, another time. Since I'll be seeing them in concert soon, I decided it was time to compile this one.
**Songs are listed in chronological order by album, which is why the list is not numbered
There are just 17 days left until I get to see Panic! live for the first time (you better believe I have a countdown!), so I thought I'd highlight my favorite songs by them this time. They've changed a lot in 10 years and "they" has recently become "he", as Brendon Urie is the sole remaining member. Bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kenneth Harris, and drummer Dan Pawlovich now only accompany Brendon on tour--they no longer contribute creatively.
I think it's going to be wayy too hard to feature just five songs so I may do ten, oops heh.
PSA: The Avett Brothers sang a new song last night. You NEED to hear it. It's vital to your survival. No joke. I've already listened to it more than 5 times in a row and it's already my favorite. Get ready to clap/stomp/sing along. (And look at Seth just jammin' out; it's great)
UPDATE: They just announced that their new album 'True Sadness' will be coming out on June 24!!
The Killers have definitely been killin' it through my speakers lately. I'd say they've easily made it into my Top 5 favorite bands along with The Avett Brothers, twenty one pilots, Weezer, and Panic! At the Disco--quite a wide variety of genres, I know. I was going to do a Song of the Moment for them, but I can't just pick one song to feature because out of all of their 80+ songs (yes, I've heard ALL of them), there are only about 12-15 that I don't care for.
With that said, I'd like to introduce a new series called Spotlight where I will talk about my favorite bands and link more than just one song to give everyone a better idea of what the band is like. IN doing this, I really hope you will be inspired to start listening to these amazing artists (if you haven't been already). Keep reading for a few of my favorite Killers songs!
