#MusicMonday - "Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die" by Four Year Strong

#MusicMonday is dedicated to the band Four Year Strong and their song "Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die" from the Rise or Die Trying Album. The lyrics are witty and thoughtful, while the overall musicianship of the song pulls you up and pushes you back down with varying layers of vocals and drums. Enjoy this throwback from 2007!

Four Year Strong is releasing an EP on September 8th, 2017 called "Some Of You Will Like This // Some Of You Won't" - available for preorder!


They are on tour NOW in South America and return to the US in September for their 10 year anniversary tour - get tickets now!

Oh, something tells me
I'm never gonna live this one down
But I'll try but I'm gonna need a quick hand,
A sharp eye, a smooth talker
Just to play this one out to the very end.

And this is where you come in
I know, that I could count on you to walk me through
And I'm making sure that everyone who's anyone
Can be the someone that they've always wanted to.

If I couldn't get away with anything
Then how in the hell did I get here?
Say something. Say anything.
You were never the one to have something to say.
Say something. Say something. Say anything.

I've seen the best and worst of you
But we're sticking through
Because without all of the ups and downs
We've been through
You know that it's true
That I could really get sick and tired of you.

Oh, something tells me
I'm never gonna live this one down
But I'm down and out
Cause if the tensions light as a feather
Then I'd be bored stiff
We gotta mix things up a bit to keep up my interest

Sad enough to say that
Alone I could barely light a match
But together we can burn this place down.

Sorry about the mess
But when we team up, team up
We always seem to bring this place to the ground

And this is where you come in
I know, that I could count on you to walk me through
And I'm making sure that everyone who's anyone
Can be the someone that they've always wanted to.

I've seen the best and worst of you
But we're sticking through
Because without all of the ups and downs
We've been through
You know that it's true
That I could really get sick and tired of you.

Sad enough to say that
Alone I could barely light a match
But together we can burn this place down. 
[x5]

Sorry about the mess
But when we team up, team up
We always seem to bring this place to the ground

I've seen the best and worst of you
But we're sticking through
Because without all of the ups and downs
We've been through
You know that it's true
That I could really get sick and tired of you.

#MusicMonday - "Imagine" by John Lennon

#MusicMonday is dedicated to "Imagine" by John Lennon. A beautifully written song with a solid message that reminds us to live, in peace, for today.
"Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one"

#MusicMonday - "Looking Up" by Paramore

#MusicMonday is dedicated to "Looking Up" by Paramore, which was off of their Brand New Eyes album that was released in 2009. In May 2017, Paramore released a new album called, After Laughter. Check it out!
Things are looking up
Oh, finally
I thought I'd never see the day
When you'd smile at me

We always pull through
Oh, when we try
I'm always wrong
But you're never right
Oh, you're never right

Honestly, can you believe
We crossed the world while it's asleep?
I'd never trade it in
'Cause I've always wanted this and
It's not a dream anymore, no
It's not a dream anymore
It's worth fighting for

Could have given up so easily
I was a few cheap shots away
From the end of me

Taken for granted
Almost everything
That I would have died for
Just yesterday
Just yesterday

Honestly, can you believe
We crossed the world while it's asleep?
I'd never trade it in
'Cause I've always wanted this and
It's not a dream anymore, no
It's not a dream anymore
It's worth fighting for

God knows the world doesn't need another band
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
But what a waste it would've been
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
I can't believe we almost hung it up
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
We're just getting started
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh

Honestly, can you believe
We crossed the world while it's asleep?
I'd never trade it in
'Cause I've always wanted this and
It's not a dream anymore, no
It's not a dream anymore, no, oh
It's not a dream anymore, no, oh
It's not a dream anymore
It's worth fighting for

I can't believe we almost hung it up
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
We're just getting started
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
I can't believe we almost hung it up
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
We're just getting started
Yeah, we're just getting started

#MusicMonday - Summer Kickoff featuring "Surfin' U.S.A." by The Beach Boys

#MusicMonday is dedicated to "Surfin' U.S.A." by The Beach Boys. Cheers to the summer!
If everybody had an ocean
Across the U. S. A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californi-a
You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies
Huarachi sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U. S. A.

You'd catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar
Ventura County line
Santa Cruz and Trestle
Australia's Narabine
All over Manhattan
And down Doheny Way

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.

We'll all be planning that route
We're gonna take real soon
We're waxing down our surfboards
We can't wait for June
We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on surfari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' U. S. A.

Haggerties and Swamies
Pacific Palisades
San Anofree and Sunset
Redondo Beach L. A.
All over La Jolla
At Waimia Bay

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.

#MusicMonday - "Nothing Else Matters" Metallica Cover by Steve'n'Seagulls

#MusicMonday this week is dedicated to the cover that Steve'n'Seagulls did of "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica. 
Original "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica
 So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters
