I've been in the mood for depressing music, for some reason, but not "emo" music.
Country is the best depressing stuff
Chuck...at least you don't like SOS by Rihanna
Elliott Smith should be "emo" enough... though I wouldn't call him emo.
Something Corporate is damn depressing... I can't get enough of Andrew McMahon.
I quite enjoy that song. .
Just fucking kidding. hahahahaha.... that was awesome, Trevor.
the most emo music i have is weezer, but i almost never listen to that anymore...and their earlier albums dont sound much like emo at all to me. i still dig em though
but as far as "emo" emo is concerened...dear god no
I have been too... It is my friends fault.
Bright Eyes is a folk/emo type singer. He can easilly be appreciated by both emo kids and hippies. Both political and folky, and sort of depressing. Ah, but not all emo music is depressing! Just take a look at Weezer and Jimmy Eat World!
But alas, Brand New, Thursday, Taking Back Sunday, and Dashboard have to be my favorites (along with Bright eyes, of course!)!
Can't say I like Bright Eyes... I've never listened to him, though. His looks and quotes just turn me off.
That, and the "modern day Bob Dylan" fans.
Oh wait, I've listened to an earlier album of his, Letting Off the Happiness... I remember diggin' it.
No problem...I've accepted it. i also like some Coldplay, ABBA, Robbie Williams, Maroon 5, and Matt Pond
for awhile i liked "im wide awake, its morning", and it isnt to bad...but i just cant really take his singing most of the time...i hate to say that, cause i hate judging people on how they sing usually, but bright eyes singing just gets annoying to me sometimes.
Actually a lot of hippies seem to appreciate grunge, although it was actually seen as being INCREDIBLY depressing. I don't understand why emo gets such a bad rap, because blues is the same way. A very emotional style of music about lifes problems. Only differances are 1.) the type of lyrics (instead of drinking ones self to death they may sing about how they hope the other person catches some sort of lip fungus from the next person they kiss) and 2.) the respect it gets (almost everyone sees blues as a great style of music albeit depressing. However, emo is seen as a bunch of kids who cut themselves-although almost no emo kid actually does-.)
Crazy... earlier today I had a short self-debate on whether or not emo is the modern day blues...I don't believe its anywhere near it, but obviously there are quite a few similarities.
Disco is the only pure music
It's because MTV never raped, killed, deconstructed, pissed on, glued back together, and marketed blues music.
...i honestly dont keep up with styles. i just dress how i like to dress, and listen to what i like to listen to.
there is this one guy at school that is always callin me nirvana although i never listen to nirvana, nor any grunge music...but whatever. jsut do what feels right is what im gettin at
It tried to (Clapton, SRV on Unplugged way back when)
Thankfully that never caught on.
Eh, "Unplugged" was kind of a "real" show. I mean, even Dylan played on there...
Although I am unfamiliar with Matt Pond, the rest of the people you listed actually aren't emo. Abba, Robbie Williams and Maroon 5 are pop and Coldplay is alternative, in the way that U2 is (they have a very similiar sound). Some poppy emo bands would be like Panic! At the Disco and Fall Out Boy.
