A couple of days ago, while I was listening to the radio, one of the disc jockey mentioned how Emo music is in nowadays. Almost everyone’s going emo-tional complete with their black outfits and black eyeliner.
It’s true, whenever I go out at night, I sometimes would see those people in black shirt, torn jeans and black eyeliner. Well, emo music is really a hit to the young ones.
They say that emo music can either inspire you (to achieve your goals) or can be suicidal. Yes, it’s true. I have found some songs, with a line or two, that can be inspiring. Take for example, Your Guardian Angel by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, the line goes, “I can show you, I’ll be the one”. This line is inspiring to me. It makes you feel you can prove whatever it is to the one you love. It is like you can already see that you can achieve it in the future.
In another song by the same artist, Cat and Mouse, there’s a line that goes, “You said that you would die for me”. In some other songs, you might find a line “I’ll bleed for you” or “We’re drowning in misery”. These lines seems suicidal to me. It’s like you don’t have any choice. Well, things happen for a reason.
But hey, I love both songs. Maybe I’m emo in my own little way.
