This is a weekly meme that’s for the most part, the same as Song Of The Week except each week there will be for the alphabet/numbers! and it’s going to be updated once a week. This week’s edition is: A!
Nine Days are an alternative rock band from New York that formed back in 1994. They have released 6 albums. Absolutely is off of their album The Madding Crowd.
Come on, this song is a classic! I don’t think I could be friends with someone who hasn’t heard of this song. It has such a catchy beat and the lyrics might be simple but they’re perfection. Just thinking about this song is making me sing it to myself! *Sings* This is a story of a girl, who cried a river and drowned the whole world….
My favourite part is:
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles
Now how many days in a year
She woke up with hope
But she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making her promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
Now how many days disappear
When you look in the mirror
So how do you choose
Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say
You can listen to Absolutely (Story of a Girl) here.
