Oh boy, I am eating my own words after saying that knitting this sweater was going to be fast. I am making progress, I just haven’t really had the time to sit down and knit, and when I did have time I was working on my sisters socks. Now those are done, and I can focus on this sweater. Maybe I can finish the back in the next week. That would be amazing.
I did finally get a chance to post my Year 2 album to Facebook. It is sort of a photo journal looking back on my second year in Okinawa. I would love to refine it some day and post it to VSCO or some other platform. We will see.
The first time you met Daveed, you walked right into his chest.
You were running late to work, rushing through busy streets and trying to send your boss an email when suddenly you walked straight into a solid chest.
You almost fell on your ass, but a hand reached out and grabbed a hold of your arm.
“I am so sorry!” You exclaimed, looking up into the face of possibly the most attractive man you’ve ever seen. “I-I’m running late and, and I was trying to send an email and I wasn’t looking where I was going,” you explain, trying your best to stop rambling.
“No it’s okay, I wasn’t paying attention either,” he said, a small smile gracing his lips.
You took a breath, admiring the way his smile seemed to light up his face.
“Thank you, for catching me.”
“It’s no problem,” He chuckled, a warm sound that caused a smile to grow on your own face. Until you realized that this pause made you even later to work.
“Oh my god! I have to go I’m gonna be late!” You exclaimed.
You sat on the cold floor of your kitchen, tears flowing out of your eyes. You let out a shaky sigh, a sob about to burst through. It was if the world was out to get you today. One thing after another. You woke up late for your uni class, you forgot that a test was scheduled and ended up turning in a test with hardly anything on it because you didn’t know the information, you had to work double shifts since your coworker decided to call in sick, you went to pick up dinner but your card was declined since someone was accessing your bank account. It was just national “Piss on Y/N Day.”
You heard keys jingling in your door before a voice called out to you. Harry turned the corner into the kitchen and sighed, “Oh, love.” You looked up at Harry and started to sob. Harry quickly sat on the floor next to you and pulled you into his lap. He started whispering things such as “You’re going to be okay, love.” or “I love you, you brave girl.”
Eventually your crying ceased. You were just enjoying the feeling of Harry’s arms around you. You quickly looked at him, “You’re supposed to be at Jeff’s birthday dinner right now!”
Harry kissed your forehead. “Jeff will understand. Gotta make sure my girl’s okay.”
It’s like a test, it’s like a game
To see how much I can take
Harry was pacing in front of you, face red. You were looking down at your hands, sat on the couch in his living room.
“I just don’t understand what the big deal is, Y/N!” Harry turned to you, crossing his arms. “Doesn’t change anything! Still love you!”
You sighed for the millionth time that time. You pinched your nose and closed your eyes. “Why do you have to pretend you’re dating someone else? What good will that do?”
Harry sat down next to you. “It’ll get people talking. It’ll bring up my name more. My album would be talked about more.” You looked down at the coffee table, “Why can’t you be seen with me? Why can’t I be the reason why you’re being talked about?”
This time Harry sighed, wanting the conversation to end, “We’ve been seen together already and already claimed we’re friends. Bringing someone new will bring more conversation to the table.” Harry stood up from the couch and looked down at you, “Whether you like it or not, this is happening.” He walked to his bedroom and slammed the door. Not wanting to be there any longer, you grabbed your jacket and left his apartment.
Tell me you’ve never loved me
Tell me that it wasn’t real
Just say you’ve found somebody else
Since the fight, Harry stayed true to his word. Him and his publicity team found someone he could pretend to date. To say she was beautiful was an understatement. She was the classic “girl next door.” What Harry didn’t mention was just how long this whole ordeal would go on. It’s been a month and Harry was still required to be seen with this girl. What he also failed to mention was the lack of communication the two of you would have. Missed calls, unanswered texts, hardly coming to one another’s apartments. He was in the same city but you’ve never felt as far as you did from him. You were looking at your phone, a new picture of “Harry and his beau” was on the screen. Your best friend was staring at your every move, a look of sympathy on her face. “You know. He should just date her. Make things easier. If he wants to be seen with someone else so badly just fucking be with her.” You mumbled, reading the article of Harry and his new love interest.
Your best friend winced, not wanting to upset you any more. “You don’t mean that, Y/N.”
You slammed your phone down and looked up at her. “I mean it, he should just get it over with already.”
And every memory will fade
“I’m so sorry, Y/N!” Harry said while on FaceTime with you. You were in the living room of your apartment, a banner saying “Happy birthday” hanging behind you. You moved out of the way as your friends were gratefully cleaning after the party. “Management thought it would be nice to be seen at Paris! Thought it would look like a little get away! Make it seem romantic!” Harry tried reasoning with you. You looked at him with an emotionless face. I should be going on a runaway trip to Paris with you. Especially on my fucking birthday. “It’s fine, Harry.” You started walking to your bedroom door, passing down hallways filled with pictures of you and Harry.
“I promise I’ll make it up to you.”
Break my heart
You stared at the magazine in front of you. Mocking you and confirming your worst nightmare. On the picture was a photo of Harry kissing his “girlfriend” with his arms wrapped around her waist. You stared at it with no emotion whatsoever. Somehow, you knew this would happen. You were done.
This can only end one way
Just do it now, I don’t wanna wait
“Break up with me” You said as soon as Harry’s apartment door opened.
Harry gave you a look. He knew you saw that picture. He gasped, “What..No.”
You pushed him out of the way and walked into his apartment. “Clearly I don’t mean anything to you if you’re out cheating on me.”
Harry closed the door and looked at you, “Cheating! It’s for-”
“I know! It’s for work but that kiss wasn’t for work! That was solely for your own pleasure!” You screamed at him, hands flying to your hair and tugging on it.
Harry panicked and walked up to you, hands trying to find yours, “Love, please let me explain-”
You quickly backed away from him and started to walk to the door. You turned your head over your shoulder. “We’re though.”
don’t forget to send in your requests on what song i should do next!
JUNGKOOK HATES JIMIN AND YOU JIKOOK SHIPPERS NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE FUCKING HATES HIM
Look, you can say Jungkook doesn’t like Jimin in a romantic way, you can say they are not together, you can even push a little further and say Jungkook is not gay etc etc, I’m ok with it all, you do you, I do whatever I believe also, but the moment you say Jungkook HATES Jimin you’re no longer welcomed in my ask or nowhere near this fandom.
How can your delusional mind actually think that two people who have lived together for years, shared the same house, have shared the same bed, eat together, dance together, sing together, basically do everything together and have one of the most beautiful, trustworthy, wholeheartedly relationship, friendship, call it what you will, hate each other, is not even slightly possible, and that’s what YOU need to understand, fuck it’s absolutely ridiculous to think this way, no matter what ship you like, not even when it doesn’t come to shipping at all, they simply love each other so much, all of BTS, that they made a whole album just to show that and then you go around spreading hate…
I can honestly say you are the most immature person I have ever had the displeasure of ‘meeting’ and you need to go pick up your brain cells ‘cause they all over the floor dear, or I don’t know, maybe deep down you just love jikook so much that you have the twisted will to spam shippers so they can deliver you countless compilations of their love and you can bask in their glory all day.
Well, I’m not gonna give you the pleasure, please leave people alone and go find yourself something useful to do.
Having a crazy, passionate love making session and then the aftermath where you just cuddle but it’s light and funny (?) I don’t know if that made sense
hey beautiful! it made perfect sense, thank youu x
(this photo is one of my new favorites, thought I would include it. source is here x.)
would be gradually
slowing to a normal rate, his chest still rising and falling at an odd rhythm. Yours too, your breath would escape in tiny giggles (because you got a lil giggly after sex sometimes, especially when Harry would let out a stream of nonsense and rushed “thank yeh”s after, his face buried in your neck and his fingers gripping your wrists and his lips sloppily kissing the column of your throat, moans rippling from his core) and Harry would giggle back a bit, his eyes trailing down your body to your legs intertwined with his.
cheek is against
his bare body, resting on one of the swallows near his collarbones. Sweat lingered on his neck, and with your lips barely grazing it you are overwhelmed by the essence of him. He’s extremely warm, the two of you are practically heaters at this point, but your hearts are synchronized and you really don’t give a damn.
my biggest pet peeve ever is when you express a casual disliking towards something benign like a band, celebrity, or TV show, and a bunch of people hop in and hound on you as if you’ve besmirched the name of god himself
NIALL HORAN was always the guitar-strumming singer- songwriter of ONE DIRECTION.
So as the boys try to establish themselves after the split – with mixed results musically – Niall has naturally moved as far away from the dance-dominated charts as possible.
While HARRY STYLES went down the sophisticated Bowie-esque rock ’n’ roll route, Irishman Niall, is unashamedly soft rock – think JOHN MAYER crossed with ED SHEERAN.
The ten songs on debut album Flicker – out on Friday, October 20 – are all top quality.
The record is a mature listen with lovely instrumentation and super-smooth vocals. And just like Niall’s personality, it’s laid-back and chilled – perfect for a Sunday afternoon in the park.
Alongside hit singles This Town, Slow Hands and Too Much To Ask, there are seven new songs.
Here’s a track-by-track rundown of the lyrics:
ON THE LOOSE: Upbeat opening about a seductive woman. He sings: “She’ll run with your mind and pull you in tight, then trade you in for something new. I know what it’s like, I fell for it twice.”
SEEING BLIND: Rip-roaring country duet with MAREN MORRIS. They belt out: “Oh, my, my, you just took me by surprise, and I can’t believe my eyes. Oh, I must be seeing blind, you’re too good to be all mine.”
PAPER HOUSES: Heart-breaking ballad about a dying relationship. Niall ponders: “I don’t wanna lose your touch, I don’t wanna hurt this much, I can feel you slipping away.”
SINCE WE’RE ALONE: Relaxed tune in which Niall expresses his interest to a new love. He croons: “Why would you wanna please someone else? I love you best when you’re just yourself, yeah, you’re everything I want.”
FLICKER: The most beautiful and heartfelt song on the album. He sings: “There’s a light in the dark, still a flicker of hope that you first gave to me, that I wanna keep. Please don’t leave.”
FIRE AWAY: Soft-singing Niall encourages a lover to open up. He tells her: “When you’re losing your grip, even if I don’t understand, you can talk to me. Fire away.”
YOU AND ME: Complete with a guitar solo, Niall ends the album on a high. He sings: “When I look down the line at the man I wanna be, I’ve always known from the start that it ends with you and me.”
Ryden. Ryan Ross and Brendon Urie. The two men who have royally fucked up my life. I wanted to “decode” their relationship. Song lyrics, interview, lore. Everything. If anyone has read M Theory about Sherlock, that is the feel I’m going for. I’m going to do this chronologically, but first a quick overview of Ryden and a little background. Even If you don’t believe they were in love, the loss of friendship is just as sad.
A lot of this is speculation. I love Brendon, Ryan, Jon, Spencer, Dallon and Sarah.
So, Ryan Ross and Brendon Urie are both known because of the band Panic! At the Disco. A band that has had no fewer than nine members. The originals, Brendon Urie, Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson. Ryan and Spencer had been friends since they were five and had begun the band playing Blink-182 covers. Many splits over twelve years, leaving lead singer, Brendon Urie, the only original member left.
Panic! Was originally Ryan and Spencer Smith (original drummer’s) band, joined by Brent Wilson (original bassist) who was the one to bring in Brendon. The thing is, Brendon was originally the backup guitarist with Ryan as lead vocals. After hearing Brendon sing they made him lead singer and Ryan the lead guitarist. Ryan was reluctant to let Brendon take over, these were HIS songs about HIS struggles. Both Ryan and Brendon have talked about how hard it was for them to communicate on how to sing the songs. You might know the next bit, they sent some demos (Camisado, Time to Dance, Nails for Breakfast and Tacks for Snacks) to Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy bassist) who flew to LA and watched them practice. He ended up signing them to his label, decaydance. Ryan wrote all of the songs from A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, the album including hit, I Write Sins Not Tragedies. Chances are, this is the first P!atd song you ever heard. Ryan and Brendon were beginning to warm up to each other.
Panic! Really hit it big in 2006. They sold 10, 000 albums in the first week. Later on that year they won ‘MTV video of the Year’ for I Write Sins. They began to tour. This is around the time they started the ‘stage-gay’. You may have seen the ‘Perfect Passionate Kiss’ video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK25McZVK0c) . Later this year the first split occurred, bassist Brent Wilson was kicked out of the band. It was revealed that he didn’t record any bass on the album. Instead, Brendon had filled in and recorded all of the bass. The Nothing Rhymes With Circus tour replaced Brent with Jon Walker. The Circus tour’s most notable event was
Panic! Had a dancer named Dream, who every night would go on stage and say that Brendon was a virgin. In an interview, Dream said this was a lie. Greta Salpeter from Hush Sound, who was touring with Panic! Said that they went skinny dipping at Myrtle Beach around midnight. This is normal. Friends skinny dip together all the time. What makes it part of Ryden Lore is good ol’ Ryro’s livejournal post later that night.
6-25-06 01:21:28 PDT - (No Subject)
The moon bred new Atlantic life tonight. the salt burned you right out of my eyes. and secrets we’re not proud of were taken with the tide. We were all newborns with blurred vision and no sense of direction.
Today I saw cancer, cigarettes and shortness of breath. this is why I walk to the ocean. swim with jellyfish. I may never get this chance again. this is why if you want to kiss you should kiss. If you want to cry you should cry, and if you want to live you should live. You don’t have to love me. You already did. At least enough to keep me smiling from South Carolina to Virginia. it’s for lovers (orjustfriends) This is why I do it.
THIS IS AFTER BEING NAKED WITH BRENDON. UNDER THE MOONLIGHT. JUST SAYING.
Also, I’m going to mention a few lyrics here. I will go deeper into lyrics later on.
Hey moon, please forget to fall down.
I’m just going to say, it’s probable that Ryan and Brendon fucked that night. I think this lyric is about not wanting that night to end. Hey moon, don’t you go down. Don’t go down because that means this night is over. A night which was probably one of the best of their lives.
2007 was pretty uneventful. They started to work on Pretty. Odd, around the same time Ryan’s dad passed away. They worked through it though. The band.
They released the first single Nine in the Afternoon, early in 2008. What stands out about this song is really the video. Despite having great lyrics, if you’re looking at this through the Ryden Conspiracy Theorist Lens™ like I am, the video really stands out. The end especially shows how comfortable they were around each other. It’s just really cute. I don’t want to talk about Northern Downpour yet because it’s 1 AM and I don’t want to cry right now. So we’re going to talk about When The Day Met The Night. This is the Sun and Moon theory. Ryan is the sun, Brendon is the moon. Some believe it’s the other way around. Please check http://analyzingpanic.tumblr.com/post/65592663208/i-think-its-the-other-way-around-ryans-the-sun for why I think this. I think that the song is a story. A story about how they fell in love.
When the moon (Brendon) found the sun (Ryan) he looked like he was barely hanging on. I think this is saying that before Brendon, Ryan was close to giving up.
Her (Brendon) eyes saved his (Ryan) life. Brendon’s love saved Ryan. Like it or not, Brendon’s voice is what gave Panic! That little boost that it desperately needed to make it big. Many other songs reference this particular piece of lore. Anyway, I guess I have to do it now. Northern Downpour. THE Ryden song. First, we have to talk about Ryan’s 21st birthday. Pete threw Ryan a party in New York, which is on the EAST coast. Ryan was the only one drinking age, so the rest flew to RAINY NORTHERN SEATTLE. Around midnight Ryan left his party and his girlfriend, Keltie Colleen, and flew to Seattle without warning. Maybe you’ve already figured it out.
I missed your skin when you were east. Ryan was on the east coast away from Brendon. This ties in with- You clicked your heels and wished for me. Ryan wished he was with Brendon.
I know the world’s a broken bone, but melt your headaches, call it home. THIS LINE. Ryan told Brendon to pay special attention to this line. Also, this is the line when Brendon would start crying while performing it after the 2009 split. The meaning though. I think it’s about how yes, the world sucks, and hurts. But if you ignore that, let the pain melt away, it’s home.
You may be wondering how we know about Seattle. The thing is, there’s photos of them there. Eating at the Market. Ryan in the same clothes as the night before. Seattle itself is very important. Ryan has said it’s his favourite place to perform. Ry was driving to Seattle when he got the call that his father died. Of course there’s also the “Maybe one day we’ll settle in Seattle” line. Also Bren breaking down while performing Casual Affair in Seattle.
Okay. I’m done with 2008. Bring on 2009.
If I didn’t want to talk about Northern Downpour, I definitely don’t want to talk about 2009. But I gotta. Fuck 2009. 2009 is the year of the split. The cited reason of the split is ‘Musical Differences’ I think that this is partially true. Ryan and Jon had begun to write music on their own. They had also started to make fun of Brendon’s attempts at writing music. The tension was building. They did try to work things out by going to a cabin to write their next album, Crickets and Clover. Never heard of it? That’s okay. It was never released. Now. Now we talk about Cape Town.
This was it. The End. I can’t really talk about Cape Town. No one knows what happened.
The Young Veins
Ryan and Jon left. They formed their own semi-successful band. There’s a few song we need to talk about. Lie to the Truth is all about how Ryan tried to love Keltie, but couldn’t. About how he wanted needed their relationship to stay private. But I really need to talk about Cape Town. Yes, they wrote a song about. BUT IT’S RYAN ROSS SO NO ONE FUCKING KNOWS WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT. POETIC LITTLE SHIT. Specifically, the contrast between it and The Calendar. I think that The Calendar is very important so I’ll talk about it separately later.
Cape Town vs. The Calendar
And I meant everything that I said that night. Brendon did mean everything he said. Presumably they had a fight.
I will come back to life, but only for you. THIS CHANGES THE LAST LINE. Yes, Brendon meant what he said, he was mad. But he was still in love. He can forgive him. Only him.
Woke me in the morning, asked me if I meant it. I’m assuming Ryan said some pretty shitty things to Brendon. But he didn’t mean them.
I loved, I left you, in Cape Town. Ryan did love Brendon, but they couldn’t stay together.
Vices & Virtues
I love this album. So much. I cried the first time I listened to it. I swear this entire album is about Ryan Ross. Every song has meaning so this’ll take a while.
The Ballad of the Mona Lisa
Say what you mean. Ryan stop being so cryptic and just TELL BRENDON WHAT YOU MEAN.
Let the sun rain down on me. Sun and Moon theory.
Give me a sign, I want to believe. Brendon wants Ryan to show him he’s still in love with him, Brendon wants them to be together.
You’re guaranteed to run this town. Good job, Ry! You finally have control over you music. Even later into 2009 Ryan and Brendon still struggled with how Brendon was singing Ryan’s lyrics. This is Bren being petty.
I’d pay to see you frown. Brendon wants Ryan to fail so he’ll finally realize that he needs Brendon.
Pleased to please ya. Brendon felt like Ryan thought that it was a privilege for Brendon to sleep with him.
You’re behind my eyelids when I’m all alone. Brendon misses Ryan. A lot.
I led the revolution, in my bedroom. This is talking about the fact Ryden was a LGBTQ+ relationship.
They don’t look like me. Brendon’s a cocky lil shit. Brendon knows that Ryan isn’t going to be with anyone more attractive than him.
They don’t sound like me. No matter how hard Ryan and Jon try, none of those songs they write can sound like his. They don’t have the vocal ability.
This one hurts too. Memories
With an unrequited love. Brendon felt that Ryan never really loved him back
She was the youngest of the family, and the last to be let go. Brendon was the youngest of a large mormon family.
Then they decided that they would try to make it on their own. The original four all risked everything for this chance that they would make it in the music world.
Oh memories, where’d you go? You were all I’d ever known. I actually think this is about Ryan and Spencer’s friendship. One of the unanswered questions of the split is, why did Spencer side with Brendon even though Ryan had been his best friends since they were five?
How I miss yesterday. Brendon and Spencer both just really want it to be 2009 again.
When July became December. An overarching theme of this album is summer ending. This is often related to the split.
But they couldn’t quite remember what inspired them to go. After the underwhelming debut of The Young Veins, Ryan and Jon would have to watch Panic! Make a comeback, without them.
They were fighting for their love, it was growing tired. Brendon and Ryan tried to make it work.
When the money lost momentum. Ryan and Jon were probably rolling in Panic! Royalties after they left, but although they still gain a little money from their Panic! Days, it’s definitely slowed down.
They were young and independent, and they thought they had it planned. Should have known right from the start, you can’t predict the end. At the beginning they were young, and desperate for separation from their parents. They thought everything would be perfect. You can’t predict how things will end.
Don’t let it fade away. I think that this is a message to us, the fans. Don’t let these first two albums be forgotten.
I think this song is about Brendon’s mistakes as a lover and friend. About how it bothers him that Ryan can seemingly just keep going without him. Brendon knows he fucked up by letting Ryan leave, he wants to trade those mistakes for peace of mind
Ready to Go (Get Me Out Of My Mind)
You’ve got these little things, that you’ve been running from. Ryan had a troubled childhood that still haunts him, it’s why he can’t stay with someone from his past. These tiny things following him everywhere.
I’m ready to live. Fuck Ryan Ross. Brendon is learning how to be in Panic! Without Ryan. Learning to live without Ryan.
Get me out of my mind. Brendon wants to think about anything but Ryan.
Always this song fucks me up too
When the world gets too heavy, put it on my back. I think this is about how Ryan wrote songs about his struggles, then Brendon had to sing it. Brendon would have to carry part of the burden.
You’re taking me apart. Brendon is slowly being pulled apart, Ryan left him. His band is split in two.
It was always you, falling for me. Brendon now sees that Ryan did love him.
I’m the light blinking at the end of the road, blink back to let me know. Despite everything, Brendon is still waiting for Ryan. He’s begging Ryan for a sign that there’s something worth waiting for.
I’m a fly that’s trapped, in a web, but I’m thinking that, my spider’s dead. Brendon is still very in love with Ryan, but he’s beginning to believe that there’s no hope for them.
Lonely, lonely little life, I could kid myself, thinking that I’m fine. Brendon feels alone without Ryan. Yes, he has Spencer, but it’s not the same. Even though he knows that Spencer can’t replace Ryan in anyway, he can make himself believe that.
If you don’t let it out, you’re gonna let it eat you away. Ryan and Brendon were keeping their love a secret and it was slowly destroying them.
Pray I could replace her, forget the way her tears taste. Brendon tried to replace Ryan and Jon with Dallon, but it wasn’t the same.
Put another X on the calendar, summer’s on its death bed. Summer was when their love both blossomed and and died.
There’s simply nothing worse than knowing how it ends. Brendon had said in interviews that he’d hoped that they’d be together forever. I bet if you’d told 17 year old Panic! That it would end with them all hating each other, not talking. Toxic relationships. They would have hesitated before signing to decaydance.
And I meant everything I said that night, I’ll come back to life, but only for you. This is hinting at the resurgence of Panic! Literally 90% of the songs on V&V were about Ryan. Panic! Came back, but for Ryan.
Don’t want to call it a second chance, but when I came back, it was more of a relapse. Whenever Brendon gave Ryan a second chance it felt like he was doing drugs again, like he was high. Like he had broken a promise to himself.
THIS SONG IS ABOUT SARAH. I CAN MAKE AN ARGUMENT FOR MOST OF THESE SONGS. BUT. THIS. IS. ABOUT. SARAH.
This song is special because it’s technically the last song written by Ryan Ross for Panic! He didn’t write all of it though. We need to start with the french.
Dès le premier jour, ton parfum enivra mon amour, et dans ces instants, j'aimerais être comme toi par moments, mais depuis ce jour, je n'ai qu'un seul et unique regret
From day one, my love your perfume intoxicated, and in these moments
I want to be like you at times, but since that day, I only have a single regret. Most of this comes in again later.
Here I am, composing a burlesque. What’s really important about this line is how Brendon performs it. This is the last line Ryan ever wrote. Brendon will often perform it mockingly, many people have interpreted it as Brendon being petty af and making fun of Ryan.
I only shoot up with your perfume. Only Ryan can get him the high he craves.
I’ve got just one regret to live through, that one regret is you. Brendon regrets Ryan, regrets their love.
I’ve got just one regret to live through, and I regret ever letting you go. This changes the meaning of the original line. Now, it’s about Brendon regretting letting what he and Ryan had die. He thinks he should’ve held onto it as long as possible.
Mona Lisa, pleased to please ya. This makes me think that the Mona Lisa is Ryan. Even though Brendon regrets leaving Ryan, he knows he was never as much to Ryan as Ryan was to him.
The album as a whole
Brendon is a salty bitch.
Not much happened between this and Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die. Brendon cried while performing Northern Downpour. Idk not much. Oh yeah, Brendon and Sarah got married.
Too Rare to Live, Too Rare to Die
I think this album is a lot of Brendon accepting his sexuality, Ryan+Jon being gone, and the future. A fair amount of this album was written by Dallon.
This is Gospel
This song is about Spencer and his struggle with addiction.
When I saw Panic! In concert, Brendon said this was about a girl in Vegas. I think that there’s some parts that apply to Ryan though. I think when Brendon sings about no one knowing who was there, he’s talking about how they’d had to keep their love a secret.
Girl That You Love
This song was dedicated to Ryan Ross in the album notebook.
Drop every pretense. Pretense literally means an attempt to make something that is not the case to appear true. So basically Brendon is saying, ‘hey Ry, yeah remember how we pretended we weren’t in love. Yeah stop that’
The song’s about how Brendon felt addicted to Ryan’s love, always saying that it would be the last time.
I actually think this isn’t about Ryan, but instead Brendon realizing that it’s okay for him to have these feelings for another man.
This song is talking about how they’d both just said, ‘Oh it’s okay, we’re young, fooling around.’ If you want to cry watch this video of Brendon singing Casual Affair and breaking down. In Seattle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhXDQBZNdIE
End of All Things
I am always yours. Yes, Brendon’s married and loves Sarah. But this song is about the end of an era. Ryan will always have a hold over Brendon, but this song is Brendon trying to move on.
We are young again. Brendon wants to go back to the beginning. When they were young and happy and carefree.
In these coming years, many things will change, but the way I feel, will remain the same. Brendon wants Ryan to know things will change, he’s married now. But a part of him will always care about Ryan, no matter what.
After Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die Spencer left. He left to go get help for is drug abuse. Brendon began to work on Death of a Bachelor. Ryan…. Ryan kept being emo™.
Death of a Bachelor
Doab is about Brendon falling in love with Sarah, getting married, AGAIN trying to move on.
My life started the day I got caught, under the covers. Brendon didn’t know what life was truly like before Ryan.
Who was I trying to be? Why were they trying to hide it? Everyone guessed anyway.
Then the time for being sad is over, and you miss them like you miss no other, but being blue is better than being over it. Brendon knows he should be over Ryan by now, but he still misses him. And to Brendon, being sad about the split is better than forgetting about the love he shared with Ryan.
Death of a Bachelor
Do I look lonely? Hey Ryan. Ryan look. I’m married and still in the band. I’m still friends with Spencer. I’m not lonely.
And when you think of me, am I the best you ever had? Does Ryan still miss Brendon like Brendon misses him. Is Brendon still the best relationship he ever had?
Share one more drink with me, smile even though you’re sad. Brendon is married. Ryan can never be that person for him anymore, but Ryan has to pretend that he’s happy for Brendon.
Fuck this song. If I went through every song that could possibly reference Ryden/Original band it would take pages. So here’s some highlights.
We’ll stay drunk, we’ll stay tan, let the love remain. The summer before the split, where they toured around the world. That is summer that Brendon is talking about. The summer when the band got along, where they ALL loved each other.
Golden days. Brendon thinks these are the best days of his life. He knows that when he’s older he’ll look back on his life and remember the summer spent with his three best friends is the of his life.
Time can never break your heart, but it can take the pain away. Brendon knows that eventually thinking about the split will hurt less.
House of Memories
This song is a problem. I hate it. So much. HOUSE OF PROBLEMS. It has the same problem as the last one. Highlights;
Memories turn into daydreams. Brendon longs for days of Pretty. Odd And the memories have slowly morphed into daydreams about what could’ve been.
Promise me a place, in your house of memories. Ryan promise me that you won’t forget what we had.
I THINK OF YOU FROM TIME TO TIME, MORE THAN I THOUGHT I WOULD, YOU WERE JUST TOO KIND, AND I WAS TOO YOUNG TO KNOW. Brendon knew he’d miss Ryan, but thought it would be rarer. Now looking back, Brendon realizes that what they had was worth keeping.
These thoughts of past lovers, they’ll always haunt me. This is a message to Sarah saying I love you, but I can’t let go of him.
Memories tend to just pop up. Brendon doesn’t want to miss the old Panic! But he can’t help is. -Don’t Threaten Me With Good Time
Can you do one where
you have been bestfriends forever, and then you kiss. And start acting like
you’re in a relationship but you are not. Then he wants you to be….
This request was made by @martetjaland a while ago. I’m so sorry it took me so long, darling. Hope you like it!
For your whole life, you’ve been friends with Harry. Your moms were
friends even before they got pregnant at almost the same time, so the only
logical thing was for you and Harry to be the best of friends.
Through your life, you always have this strong feeling for Harry. Of
course you never really told him about it, because you didn’t to ruin the
friendship you guys built over the years. So when he went to audition for the
X-Factor, you were there to support him, but made a note to yourself that if he
ever win or became famous, you would get over him.
And that’s what happened. Today, Harry is one of the most famous
celebrity’s around the world. And you are still not over him. Sad, isn’t? Well,
it’s quite difficult to get over him when nothing ever changed between you. You
were always best friends and you still are to this day. Of course his agenda is
crazy for years now, but he constantly text you and call you. Not to mention
that every time he’s in London, he stays at your place. The fans love you and
even want you guys to become more than friends, but life is more complicated
“Miss Y/N, you can wait here for Mr. Styles.” The bodyguard that Harry
hired to go with you to airport instructed.
Harry was coming back after promoting his debut single “Sign of the
times”, so of course you went to pick him up from the airport. But him being the
overprotective friend he is, made you take a bodyguard with you, for the simple
fact that everybody knew he was coming back, so the airport was packed.
“Thank you, Roger.” You smiled and sit in the sofa of the small room
they were making you wait. You’re more nervous than ever because things are a
little bit different between you and Harry.
His texts and calls have become more fluffy and even a lit bit flirty.
Which is weird because you never saw this side of Harry. Well, at least not
towards you. Even in interviews, when someone asked him about you, he’s more
vocal about your relationship, about how you have always been friends and all.
He never talked much about you in interviews before.
“Y/N!” He smiled and ran to your arms. Hugging him after so long felt so
good you almost didn’t want to let go.
“Hi bubba, how are you? The flight was ok?” You smiled back and looked
in his green eyes.
“Yeah love, I just wanted to get here faster. You look even more
beautiful than the last time I saw you!”
“Don’t need to lie, I’m still the same. You, on the other hand…” Your
hands immediately found his soft hair and you smile. “It reminds me of Take Me
“Your favorite time, wasn’t it?” He smirked.
“Indeed it was, my friend. Now c’mon, let’s go home.”
You both went through the sea of fans in the airport and soon enough you
were driving through London to get to your flat.
“So, how was the promoting? Tell me everything!” You asked excited while
helping him take his bags to your living room. “I’m sure you had so much fun!”
“I did, but I missed you, love. Next time, you’re coming with me.” He
kissed your forehead. “Hm, I’m so sorry for this, I just can’t take it anymore,
“What are you talking a…?” Your words died as soon as his hands found
your waist and his lips found yours.
You dreamt with this moment for years and now it was happening and it
was better that everything you have ever imagined. Your hands found his hair
and you tugged at the soft curls. He pulled even closer and, for that small
instant, you though you could die from how fast your heart was beating.
He pulled apart form you first, needing air.
“Are you gonna hit me?” He asked a little bit nervous. You shook your
head and smiled.
“Nah. C’mon bubba, let’s have dinner.”
A week later…
It’s been a week since you and Harry kissed for the first time. Yes,
first, because since then you’ve been acting like a couple all the time. A lot
of kisses, small dates at your apartment to avoid paparazzis and stuff like
that. But something bothered you and it was the fact that you never discussed
what was this, what you were doing.
“Haz, we need to talk.” You said during a marathon of movies.
“Course love, what is it?” He looked curiously at you.
“What are we doing? I mean, we’ve been acting like a couple for a week,
but we never talked about it and I’m starting to freak out about you because I
do like what we have, but if this is just some silly thing for you than…” You
“Love, breathe.” He cradled your face in his hands. “I love you. And I
have been in love with you for quite some time now, but I never really got the
courage to say it. It was never the right time, with me always on tour with the
boys, or with the movie and the solo album and… It was never the right time.
But I realized it was never gonna be the right time if I decided to wait for my
agenda to quiet down. So, I’m here telling you that I’m in love with you and
asking you to continuing to be by my side, but not as just my best friend, but
as my girlfriend. Will you be girlfriend so I can finally stop pretending to
the world that I don’t love you? “
You never smiled so big in your life as right now. You feel like your
heart could burst from happiness. You kissed him and pulled him to you. He
smiled into the kiss and pulled away.
“It’s this an yes?” He asked.
“Of course, you silly. I love you too. For as long as I can remember.”
He kissed you again and that’s when you knew you’re meant to be with him
and that nothing could ever break you two apart.

the playlist contains over 20 samples of sea shanties
The group singing in the video has professionally recorded the music and have 3 albums on iTunes. This group also contains many women, who are lead singers in a few songs!
My favorites are (some of them are on their itunes, if i name an album, it’s on itunes. But you can find recordings of most of these on the internet. I just think this group sings them with the most gusto and the best quality recording, they have a huge group so it sounds like a crew of people)
MANY OF THESE HAVE LIVE SAMPLES ON THE YOUTUBE PLAYLIST
From the album “the paddy west school of seamanship”
there are people who wait for years in between releasing new music and in the span of last year he’s given us an album, a collab with snakehips, taylor swift and chris brown/usher, an original track for ghost busters and the get down plus the acoustic version of idwlf. and this was all in one year. how can you say “oh he’s still making music?” when he’s done so much in just one year. zayn loves music - he loves other things as well and he’s in a position that he can do everything he love - but he is a musician, a singer.
“I’d never heard a collection of songs that were all that good before. It’s like a collection of folk songs, and they’re all just really, really great songs. And not just about love. They’re about a lot of different things, but they all go together, somehow. Listening to Rubber Soul didn’t clarify my ideas for Pet Sounds, exactly. But it inspired me. When we were listening to it that night I said to myself, ‘Now I’m gonna make an album just as good as Rubber Soul.’ Not the same album. Obviously there can only be one album that’s Rubber Soul, just like there can only be one Pet Sounds. But it inspired me to do my own thing, and so the next morning I went to the piano and wrote “God Only Knows” with Tony Asher. „ —Brian Wilson
“It sort of dawned on me that love was the answer, when I was younger, on the Rubber Soul album. My first expression of it was a song called The Word. The word is 'love’. 'In the good and the bad books that I have read,’ whatever, wherever, the word is 'love’. It seems like the underlying theme to the universe. Everything that was worthwhile got down to this love, love, love thing. And it is the struggle to love, be loved and express that that’s fantastic„ —John Lennon
“We were very pleased with the way everything’s turned out. We all think it’s just about our best LP. I can’t wait for it to come out. The sleeve’s finished too, and the picture on the front is pretty good! „ —George Harrison
THE GANG’S ALL HERE… in winter clothes doodles. Put together, these look like a page from some kind of gang fam photo album, and I can only assume that the next page is just pictures of Narancia shoving snow down Fugo’s people’s coats.
Liam Payne will be making the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball rounds this year, hitting every city except Boston on the circuit from Nov. 28 in Dallas to Miami on Dec. 17. But while he has played the event before with One Direction, this marks the first time taking the Jingle Ball stage solo.
“It’s gonna be a bit strange, right?” Payne told Billboard Tuesday (Oct. 10) at the official iHeartRadio Jingle Ball launch event in New York City. “I really enjoy performing and I’m hoping everybody’s enjoying my songs. I really can’t wait – it’s a great end to the year.”
Ironically, the last time Payne played a Jingle Ball was actually what would be One Direction’s last show in America to date, at KIIS FM’s event in Los Angeles in 2015. When looking back on that show, he does remember having a slight “What does the future hold?” moment with his bandmates, but it’s all turned out practically better than expected.
"It was a bittersweet feeling, because we knew we were getting a little bit of a break,” Payne recalls. "Obviously we knew it was the end and the confusion of not knowing when it’s gonna come back, what’s gonna happen next. So there was a lot of mixed feelings around that thing. But I think it’s all happened for the best. Everybody’s really enjoyed their success at the moment. I’m super proud of them all for doing their own thing and doing it in their own way.”
The “Strip That Down” singer’s Jingle Ball trek is similar to the one Niall Horan did last year following the release of his debut solo single, “This Town.” But instead of Horan’s one song, Payne will have three to perform: “Strip That Down,” his Zedd collaboration “Get Low,” and his latest single “Bedroom Floor,” which is coming Oct. 20.
“I want the visual to be really good for that,” Payne says when thinking about how he’ll perform his forthcoming track, which he coined as the favorite of his recorded songs so far. "It’s just a great song, I can never listen to it and get bored. And all my family loves it as well, so I’ve got to give it some love.”
With no further release plans revealed just yet, Payne isn’t quite sure what the post-Jingle Ball future looks like in terms of touring ("I don’t know if I’m ready for a solo tour yet,” he admits). What he does know, though, is that he’s planning on getting a full solo album out and seeing what happens from there.
And frankly, with “Strip That Down” recently taking over the top spot on the Pop Songs chart (coincidentally taking over Horan’s “Slow Hands”), Payne doesn’t really need to worry about rushing anything. "I want to take my time with it and that’s sort of what we’re doing along the way with [Jingle Ball],” he says. "I think it’s better to take your time with things and really see where you are in the world.”
Looking back now, Taylor really did gave us everything on reputation, like a key change (GC), crackle(TIWWCHNT), talky bits(LWYMMD), a beat stop (Dress), some drops, the play on words, the rhythm of the verses, a piano ballad solo (NYD), a whisper counting shit (SIG), some RnB influenced shit that I can hear on End Game. I can go and on and on about this album. SHE GAVE US EVERYTHING.
She gave us everything! She did… she gave us everything sonically and then… she gave us her heart and soul and her story… I don’t think people appreciate this enough but she literally poured all of her heart and emotions into these songs. Whether it’s anger or sadness or happiness and love, she sat her ass down at that piano and grabbed her guitar and probably thought “I just have to do this for myself and for everyone who’s ever stood up for me” and she fucking did that! Can you even imagine how hard all of that must have been for her? But she didn’t back down, she gave us everything there was to give… And I’m just emotional now thinking about it…
