start w/ The Execution of All Things
One of the best albums of 00s indie rock imo
Thanks, friend! I’ll check it out
great post, 1000 percent true
Welp that does it. Gotta listen to s/t ASAP.
Daydreaming, Last Hope, and Proof are definitely my favorite songs off S/T. I'll never forget being at Monumentour at Red Rocks in 2014, feeling like I was at rock bottom, and hearing Last Hope live.
"It's not that I don't feel the pain, it's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore"
Then I turned my life around.
Last Hope is the best Paramore ballad that isn’t 26, but both of them have the most meaningful lyrics in their discography to me.
Last Hope is amazing and I love Jeremy's bass in it, it's like the gentlest groove.
Proof might be the most underrated Paramore song.
I said it when AL came out but I need to revisit S/T. I liked a handful of songs like Last Hope, Proof, Ain't it Fun, Still into You but it never fully clicked with me. AL was so good I didn't wanna turn it off at the time but today will be the day I go back, haha. I also agree that AL has dethroned BNE as my favorite but they are both amazing and totally different.
Agreed. I bounce back and forth between the two depending on the day.
Jeremy is a criminally underrated bass player. He always did these random melodic runs in their songs that always make me want to listen to the song again, or at least those parts.
In Careful he does one in the 2nd verse (“...shifting your weight...”). And he does in the last choruses of Daydreaming and Still Into You.
Man. Turn It Off is such a great song. I know no one’s arguing otherwise but just felt like it had to be said
I completely agree. Still Into You might be my favorite song for his bass, so much fun.
Am i the only person who sings “I’m walking on the sunshine! WHOA OHHH!” at the beginning of Anklebiters when the guitar and bass are about to come in? Something about it just makes me think of that song haha
My personal fave by them is More Adventurous! “Portions for Foxes” is an ultimate jam.
But my all time favorite song by them is “With Arms Outstretched.”
Was my favorite Paramore song until After Laughter gave us Tell Me How
It needs to be said because it's true and it ain't talked about much.
Come to think of it, even though AL is easily my favorite Paramore album, BNE has my two favorite Paramore songs ("Careful" and "Brick by Boring Brick") and the first half of the album in general is just unreal. Maybe their best stretch of songs.
Between that song (especially the end where she goes off on the “AGAAAIINNNN!” part) and All I Wanted, BNE may very well be her most impressive vocal performance
1000 times yes! I would also put “You treat me JUUUUST LIIIIKE another stranger” in Ignorance up there in terms of sheer power.
I remember when RIOT! came out, the jump in power of Hayley's voice from AWKIF to RIOT! absolutely blew my mind.
Right? Like, how does that big voice come out of that tiny human?
My favorite little moment in a Paramore song might be the harmonies in the last chorus of Playing God (the "whoas")
I wish they did it in every chorus of that song instead of just the last one
So i just stumbled across a video of some guy filming just Ilan Rubin rehearsing “Now” with the band before they played Jimmy Kimmel that year, and say what you want about that song, but the whole drum part is dope as fuuuuuck. So glad they picked him up for recording that album.
I think they album is massively underrated
I know we'll probably have to wait until 2020 but I'd really love to get a new Paramore album this year.
