One more time you will laugh about it

And I don't care, he is such a dick
He treats you like you are a stupid whore

And it seems like things will never change
You go on, every cloud is in your way
And I know you feel empty all the time
You'll never listen to anything that I say

She's better off sleeping on the floor
Because she fell right off
When all
Is said
You know
It's okay to just want more

Why leave when you claim it is love?
But why stay when you're not the only one?
She's proved she's strong
Be brave, be strong
She's better off sleeping on the floor
Because she fell right off
When all
Is said
You know
It's okay to just want more

She's better off sleeping on the floor
She's better off sleeping on the floor
(Because she fell right off the bed)
She's better off sleeping on the floor
She's better off sleeping on the floor
(Because she fell right off the bed)
She's better off sleeping on the floor
She's better off sleeping on the floor
(Because she fell right off the bed)
She's better off sleeping on the floor
She's better off sleeping on the floor
(Because she fell right off the bed)

p.s. people who rely on singles to reserve judgement, listen to the rest of the new album.

p.s.s. They are touring with fucking No Doutb this summer. Totally going to be *such* a sick show. Two absolutely phenomenal live performer bands, Too bad its not coming to Toronto.

No one really does.

It's like calling electronic music techno. A ridiculously short sighted label that has lost all relevance for describing any tangible musical genre.

Techno = Any music with an electronic dance beat.

is the same as

Emo = any band with all or only some sad songs and wears thick glasses and chucks.

Its stupid and its use shows a complete lackof understanding of the range of music it supposedly covers.

haha!

Funny story actually.

In grade 10, when I was first exposed to the wonderful world of underground dance music......I remember talking to the only raver in my high school and asking him if I could borrow a couple of his rave tapes....cuz I had heard rave music and liked what I had heard.

His reply:

"Dude, don't call it rave music, call it techno"

I think it was an early Dominik tape....hahaha!

ok...so...would a group like, say the Verve?? fall into this category?

I honestly don't know here.

I have been out of the rock loop for a while now.

Hehehe.

Its true though. It's like one of those buzz media words that you cringe at when you hear your dad saying it, because hes so out of the loop.

"Whats with all this techno music and its bleepy blops".

I think the funniest though was Sharon Osborne commenting on the neighbour's late night party beats.

"Goddamn European sex orgy music"


now THAT was worth some props...heh!

You missed the point of my example.
Its like an SAT question:

Reffering to all electronic dance music as techno(thereby completely showing a lack of understanding of the insanely wide spectrum that exists in electronic music, most of which is not actually part of the techno genre) is akin to reffering to all sad music by guys dressed in vintage clothes as emo.

It illustrates the uselessness of the word now, as it has been bastardized. To think that Blink 182 is emo because they put 2 slow sad songs out is kinda slow, eh. Especially considering every one of their albums, except Chesire Cat, has songs like that on it. They didnt become emo until the word started being thrown around.

No you haven't - most people out there have a knowledge of the existence of the term emo, but a very limited knowledge in so far as to what it actually means. My volatility in the thread stems from the fact that I've run into this about a million times, especially on here.

Oh yeah, I forgot that any band that has Robert Smith doing guest vocals must obviously be emo.


What? Robert Smith is on a Blink track? There's a combination I never would have expected.

Emo????

when will that pathetic definition for a musical genre stop coming around.

I have to say I'm completely surprised at the amount of people here that like Blink. For those reasons I'll keep opinions to myself, and leave with the "to each thier own" statment
:D
