Greetings, Tuesday and fellow A-Zers! Today we're moving on to the letter L for the challenge.
L is for "Little Things" and "La Cienga Just Smiled"
"Little Things" - Good Charlotte
The debut single for GC, this was the first song I heard by them back in 2001. It also led to my first "real" concert (Good Charlotte, Slick Shoes, and MxPx). I have been a fan ever since; even when they went mainstream with their The Young and the Hopeless album. Eventually they were able to redeem themselves with their next three follow-ups, especially Good Morning Revival.
*Lyrics: "Yeah, this song is dedicated / To every kid who ever got picked last in gym class / To every kid who never had a date to no school dance / To everyone who's ever been called a freak / This is for you"
"La Cienga Just Smiled" - Ryan Adams
When I was living in Austria, I had about an hour or so commute at about 5:30 in the morning that involved two subways, a train, and walking. I lived with my iPod and Ryan Adams' Gold was my album of choice. This song so reminds me of strolling the Viennese streets; the sites, the sounds, the smells, everything. This brings it all back...I love this song...
*Lyrics: "And I hold you close in the back of my mind / Feels so good but damn it makes me hurt / And I'm too scared to know how I feel about you now"
