A weekly meme by Ginger of GReads! In the meme I'll talk about music and showcase it here each week.
"Secret Crowds" by Angles and Airwaves
The lyrics of this song is a huge reason I listen to this: "If I had my own world, I'd build you an empire, From here to the far lands, To spread love like violence."
It's about just love. Loving the planet, the people, without hate or violence for that matter. Making those that hurt, feel better. Kind of like a feel good anthem for my generation or the next one for that matter. I think the band touched upon a good subject for a song. Most bands for the youth are writing too many love songs or about some sad story. The good nature of what music was originally, besides love, was always about something important in some way. Some had such great feel good beats.
It was one of the reasons bands such as "The Beatles", were so popular.
Anyway, even though the lead singer is originally from the alternative punk-rock band, Blink 182, Tom DeLonge is more about love, expanding the mind, and peace with music. He is also married and has a kid. So his world view has changed too. Hence the song I chosen.
