Song of the Week#5-Hospital by Lydia (The Pretty Cover Edition)

song of the week

This is a weekly meme that’s for the most part, the same as Song Of The Day except each week there will be a different ‘edition’ and it’s going to be updated once a week. This week’s edition is: The Pretty Cover Edition. Illuminate has one of the prettiest covers I have ever seen. It tells a lot with only this picture, to me, it shows struggle, strength, and love (for the umbrella). What do you guys think of it?

Lydia is an indie rock band from Gilbert, Arizona that was formed in 2003. In 2010, the band took a year-long hiatus because of a fight that was between Steve McGraw and Leighton Antelman (the two people who started the band). In the end, before their last tour it was announced that Lydia would be breaking up. Luckily, it was only a hiatus instead. Lydia has released five albums-This December, it’s one more and I’m free, Illuminate, Assailants, Paint it golden, and Devil. Hospital is off of Illuminate.

Hospital is one of my all-time favourite songs and Lydia is one of my favourite bands so of course I have to put them on here! And just look at the beautiful cover! Hospital like the title, is about saving someone you love. It’s has a lot of meaning and sung so sweetly. I just love this song.

My favourite part is:

And all I see scares me
And no one knows it, but she, she saved me

So I’ve been sleeping with this silence in my brain
I wake up here everyday in this god damn place
I won’t wait here anymore

It’s still not quite the way it was
But you promised me this is love
So stay and watch the hospital
That’s just across the street
From your apartment balcony
I’ll never ever leave there
I’ll never leave

Oh, no one is watching now
Sing like you just might drown
But always come back home
‘Cause I never got to see you once more, no
I guess that’s all I wanted
Yeah, I guess that’s all I needed

Song Of The Day#37-No One Does It Better By You Me At Six

Oh man, my favourite british rock band ever. They’re so amazing and perfect and I saw them live. This song is super catchy that sounds like an actual story that sounds so good.

You Me At Six  is a British rock band from Weybridge, Surrey. They formed in 2004 and have been playing music for over 6 years now. They have 3 albums-Take off your colours, hold me down, and sinners never sleep. They also have won many awards and have a lot of EPs out for sale. No One Does It Better is off of their third album, Sinners Never Sleep.

No One Does It Better is a song about helping out someone you love because, just maybe, they could help save you as well. It’s about helping each other out when you need them most.

My favourite part is:

If I just saved you, you could save me too
If I just saved you, then you could save me too
I woke up the next morning and I didn’t see it coming
Oh, your bags were packed and gone
I called all your friends and they said hadn’t seen you yet
Oh, my head’s going to explode
