I spend my days doing stuff for Soul Survivor NZ and my church "Blueprint" in Wellington NZ. I am perplexed, amazed, in awe of, and spend a lot of time thinking about this revolutionary called Jesus and what it means to follow Him.

What songs make you Emo?

A while ago I was asked the question, "What songs make you dance?" which made its way to the blog with a number of crew weighing in with their foot tapping numbers. After some yarns with Naomi, its time to look at the flip-side, the underbelly, the darkside of that question.

What songs make you emo? What are your break-up songs? What songs just kill you when you listen to them? What songs manage to pull out your beating heart and put it through the blender? What songs should be illegal because they contain so much emotion?
Now this one should be an easy one to get warmed up on. Here is my stab...

Emo heart-break Songs (mainly due to girls)
UB40 - Don't break my heart (And yes, you can have a cracker with that cheese)
Coldplay - The Warning Sign (The chorus kills me, three words; break... up... song...)
Coldplay - What if
Breaks Co-op - Ima
Cake - Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps (a very perculiar break up song, don't ask)

General heart killer "send me into melancholy" songs
Mutemath - Its Ok
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Eric Clapton - Lonely Stranger
Foo Fighters - On the mend
Pearl Jam - Nothingman
Radiohead - Exit Music (For a film)
Switchfoot - The Blues
U2 - Kite
Delirious - Our God Reigns

And pretty much everything by Jeff Buckley and my mate Matt Holleman

    You've heard most of mine. Sometimes I find that songs are really applicable to me at a certain age, then when I grow up don't do if for me anymore. Probably a good thing based on what my music tastes were like as a 12 year old. There are some however that are timeless. Like these:

    Stone Temple Pilots - Yellow Nectarine "..take a bath I'll drink the water that you leave...if you should die before me ask if you can bring a friend" That's hardcore.
    Ryan Adams - How do you keep love alive.
    Radiohead - Bulletproof (Wish I was). This song is a killer!
    Smashing Pumpkins - Stumbline (?) "All my dreams, lost at sea"
    Pearl Jam - Black, Elderly Woman... Given to fly.

    Obviously a bogan at heart. There are heaps more. I could go on for days.

    The German National Anthem does it for me. . . .

    That and anything by "The Wiggles", although I hear that the destincitve nature of their song writing has become undermined by the proliferation of copycat groups. . .

  6. Blogger Sam Says:

    Lisa... I am unashamed of my love for Avril Lavigne. Not only is she an incredibly talented singer - songwriter, but her song "im with you" carried me through many a lonely night.

    That is all
