Superman is dead

Here’s what I’m listening to on a continuous loop: “Bulletproof” by La Roux, “Your Song” by Ewan McGregor from Moulin Rouge, and “Motorcycle Drive By” by Third Eye Blind.

On a note mostly unrrelated to anything, here are my favorite albums when I was 12:
Third Eye Blind – Third Eye Blind
Our Lady Peace – Clumsy
Beck – Odelay
Black Lab – Your Body Above Me
Pearl Jam – Ten

I stand by all these albums as being some of the best albums produced in the 1990’s. In the case of Pearl Jam, I’d say perhaps one of the best, and both Black Lab and Our Lady Peace being the most overlooked talents of the ’90s.

Third Eye Blind isn’t a great band. I’ll say that. But the last three tracks on their debut album remain some of my favorite songs to this day.

“Motorcycle Drive By” could be the anthem for Alice in Wisdom. Maybe that’s why its been so stuck in my head lately.

Anyway… I’m sleep deprived. My brain feels like mud. So I’ll sleep now.

P. S. Our Lady Peace’s Clumsy is in the top 10 best alternative albums ever. At least according to me. If you haven’t listened to it or heard of them, you should. “Superman’s Dead” is brilliant. I used to listen to that song obsessively on repeat. I’m not sure what they’re last album sounds like, but for a long time, they were the only band I had all their albums of. They’re just that good.

P. P. S. Now the only band that I have their albums is Fall Out Boy. Life is strange.

P. P. P. S. “Your Song” by Ewan is pretty damn sweet.
