Music Monday | October 8, 2018

Tootsie-roll, lollipop, we've been talking, now let's stop. I want everybody sitting criss-cross applesauce on the carpet showing quiet coyote. Are we all listening? Good job boys and girls! Today, we're learning about shapes and colors...



Foo Fighters | 1997


Our main lesson is going to focus on a 1997 rock album that changed my life called "The Colour and the Shape" by a band most people had never heard of at the time called the Foo Fighters. The bipolar dynamics of this album bring you from serenity to insanity in roller coaster fashion, in terms of raw emotion, tempo, and pure volume. If you're not familiar, do yourself a favor and make this album your personal soundtrack for the day. You will be a better person by tonight.



Foo Fighters | The Colour and the Shape

If you're old enough, I'm sure you will remember this music video to one of the radio hits off of the album: "Everlong".


And now it's time for the color of the day. Today's color is Green, as in Alkaline Trio's "Jaked on Green Beers". A simple and straightforward, angry and rambling pop-punk break-up song that just feels good to sing along to...



...and finally, today's shape is a circle, as in Sunny Day Real Estate's "In Circles" off of their 1994 album "Diary" (it's a good'n).


P.S. The musician of the day is apparently Nate Mendel, who incidentally makes a double appearance in this edition of Music Monday (Foo Fighters and Sunny Day Real Estate).
