billy and jeff - made by lasamy
If there was one song that you could share with the world, what would it be? Think really really hard about what you want people to feel. My biggest goal is to make sure people know that they aren't alone--teenagers in specific. Sure, there are more important things, but really... I don't see myself writing music about saving the homeless people. Music has always been something to help through personal issues. It's been there for me when I felt like no one else was--whether they really were or not is unimportant--and I think that as long as there is always emotional music that makes teenagers feel like they're going to get through something hard, life isn't as bad as it could be.

So think really hard of what you want to tell people. And leave me the lyrics of a song, and a youtube video/stream of it would be even better. It can be live or a music video.

I thought really hard, and the song I would want to share with the world is "Mayonaise." It's always been beautiful to me. Always. So even if you've heard this song a million times, and even if you didn't like it before, please take these few minutes to just sit and listen to the music and read the lyrics. Really focus in on the song. Stop doing everything and anything else. I promise to return the favor ;]

So without further ramblings, I present Mayonaise:

Live from the Siamese Dream tour

Live from the Machina tour

Totally different sounds... I suggest you listen to both if you have the time =]

Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it

Pick your pocket full of sorrow
Run away with me tomorrow

You try and ease the pain
But somehow you feel the same
Well, no one knows
Where our secrets go

Send a heart to all my dearies
When your lives are so, so dreary

I'm rumored to the straight and narrow
While the harlots of my perils

And I fail
But when I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will

Mother, weep the years I'm missin'
All our time can't be given

Shut my mouth and strike the demons
That cursed you and your reasons
Out of hand and out of season
Out of love and out of feelin'

So bad
But when I can, I will
Words defy the plan
But when I can, I will

Fool enough to almost be it
And cool enough to not quite see it
And old enough to always feel it
Always old, I'll always feel this

No more promise, no more sorrow
No longer will I follow
Can anybody hear me?
I just want to be me
But when I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will

Sorry if the lyrics are off... you know how Billy can't pronounce his words...

I love this song and I can relate to it. Mayonaise is one of those songs that I have to listen to when I'm in a bad mood or feeling angsty. I do agree with you about Mayonaise is a song that you can share with the world.

i have to say, i actually agree with you.

try try try machina version and try try try machina II version are also runners up for me, but i assume you know the lyrics to that already. ^_^ plus, most people don't seem to like those too much, so i'd definately go with mayonaise. 1979 would be good too, more for the feel than the actual lyrics.

yeah, 1979 was a close second, I think.

I LOVE the Try Try Trys. I don't understand how someone could not love them... they're seriously beautiful lyrically and musically. I think I prefer the Machina II version... but I dunno. It's tough ;]
