Re: "The Official" Blue October Thread

Well it seems that people just don't like music that cuts to the core enough to actually make something like this a hit...or even a mild success. But hey, what can you do about that. :confused:

Not much Cosmic but everyone I've had listen to it liked it quite a bit so there's hope on a small scale! :D

A cult following perhaps....or whatever the song equivalent is. :heheh:

A "History For Sale" track that I just got into:

Innerglow


I'm like a storm cloud eager when you go out
Calm again
I'll ask permission for the wrong to win
Drop the bomb and get your story out and get it on
In a haze the beginning of your days
Gonna fall down
Got to get back up but at your own pace
Got to fill your cup and find the way
Out of your own maze
Yeah boy what you said now

And hide the rule book throw it in the waste
Look strong
Like you belong cause you do belong
Whether right or wrong you belong

I'm on your side if you fail atleat you tried
To keep your aching celebrating wonder making heart alive
Yeah and pride don't keep it all inside
Don't keep your aching celebrating wonder making heart alone
Write you own song

Whatever happened to our inner glow
Whatever happened to the song the soul the me i used to know
Whatever happened to my radio
Whatever happened to my song
It is my song

So here's a preview shove it under old-new
Or call it rock or pop or bach or ****
Goddamn where did we go wrong
Now there's a catergory for every song

Yeah we only want to sing when we want to
Yeah we only want a dream we can flaunt to
Yeah we only want to fly by the side making love to the rhythm be a jeckyl and a hyde
Yeah we only want a field we can run through
Yeah we only want a beat we can drum to
Yeah we only want to fly by the side making love to the rhythm be a jeckyl and a hyde

So stride if you fail atleast you tried
To keep your aching celebrating wonder making heart alive
And pride don't keep it all inside
Don't keep your aching celebrating wonder making heart alone
Write your own song

Whatever happened to our inner glow
Whatever happened to the song the soul the me i used to know
Whatever happened to my radio
Whatever happened to the song

Gonna wake up strong ya we're all gonna wake up strong...


I love the verse:

"So here's a preview shove it under old-new
Or call it rock or pop or bach or ****
Goddamn where did we go wrong
Now there's a catergory for every song"

I heard on the radio tonight that apparently Blue October is coming to Cleveland in October or something. I'm considering going. ;)

Re: "The Official" Blue October Thread

This is one of those bands that was ruined by a relationship for me. My steady at the time was really into them.

They started out in Houston, and after touring a lot locally, they moved to Austin. I saw them a few times in small venues, and was quite impressed with their live shows. This was in the late 90's/early 2000's.

I will check out a few of these video links again, I suppose.

I hope you do Phil! If it was up too exes and love interest I would be spoiled on almost every band because music is always closely integrated into all my relationships! :D You really should check these guys out again especially the newer material because they are amongst the best writers and storytellers for bands ever IMO. I highly recommend the new single for the upcoming album
"(The Feel Again) Stay! It's such a pure emotional rush coming from a topic the singer is truly genuine about in his emotional involvement. It would have to be considering it deals with his own family! :)

Re: "The Official" Blue October Thread

Do it! They are great! They are the last band I've seen live coincidentally! :D

If I do decide to go then I think I'll need to familiarize myself with their catalog more. I think you would be able to help with that. :D
