don’t let these tight pants fool you, i’m all heart motherfucker

i knew i would do this, but i forgot some glaringly obvious additions to the list. here they are, which i know puts me over top ten (11).

  • rage against the machine : s/t
  • gorilla biscuits : start today
  • avail : one wrench / over the james
  • youth of today : disengage
  • bold : looking back
  • boy sets fire : the day the sun went out

but most importantly there two demo / EPs of friends’ bands from tallahassee, fl. they were:

  • i have dreams : three days before christmas
  • a new kind of american saint : take a shit

they were only 15 and 16 years old when they recorded the i have dreams stuff. and a few later on the ankoas stuff. i have dreams was so powerful and emotional for me every time i saw i was moved to tears. and not “oh, i’ve got something in eye” tears, more like full on weeping. those bands are sooo good and never really released that i’ve decided to give you their songs right here. please, download and share. you can find their lyrics here and here.

these are all .m4a files. which means they’ll definitely play in iTunes which if you don’t have you’re silly. and they will prolly play in some other players, too.i have dreams was so amazing that i once sat on a greyhound for 30 hours followed by another 6 hours in a car from philly to tally to see their reunion / last show on december 22, 2001. seriously, i showed up 3 minutes before they went on. watched the best five songs of my life. immediately turned around and left. my dear friends leslie and kate from atlanta were around for part of that adventure which was great. i think we stole some flags from yards, too. it was right after 9-11. good times.tags : [ i have dreams (), top10 (), a new kind of american saint (), rage against the machine (), gorilla biscuits (), youth of today (), bold (), boy sets fire (), c3px () ]Currently playing in iTunes: Holding Out for A Hero by Frou Frou
