dont really like the song as a whole though

anonymous asked:

what sufjan songs give you a gay vibe? hahah i love your blog btw

this is the best question i’ve ever gotten haha thanks

off the top of my head

  • To Be Alone With You, definitely, very strong gay vibe (also very strong god vibe)
  • The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us, which i’ve spent an obscene amount of time listening to, is totally a song about being in love with your best friend. like literally. “we were in love” “he was my best friend” “touching his back with my hand i kiss him” i mean come on
  • a lot of songs are pretty ambiguous on the pronoun front? the only indicator in Casimir Pulaski Day is “blouse”, which isn’t really that strong of an indicator of gender tbh. that one could be gay
  • i could totally see The Man Of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts being about being gay for superman
  • Chicago speaks to me on a really deep level about teenage exploration and experimentation and there are some lyrics in that one that could be interpreted to be about sexuality
  • He Woke Me Up Again is definitely more “god” than “gay” (when you actually look at the lyrics) but when i was younger when i heard it i’m pretty sure i thought it was really gay
  • All The Trees Of The Field Will Clap Their Hands is one of the songs that can easily be both/either god/gay, with the “and I am joining all my thoughts to you / and I’m preparing every part for you”. even though with the theme of the album it’s very clearly spiritual it gives me that vibe a lil
  • Did I Make You Cry On Christmas Day? (Well, You Deserved It!) feels really gay to me like the whole. a lot of queer families have issues around holidays with interacting with other family members who aren’t cool with queerness, if you know what i mean? that song is pretty gay imo
  • this is all i’ve got right now. i feel like i’m forgetting something from Illinoise tho

also i dont want to put it in with the rest (you’ll know why if you’ve actually listened to it) but John Wayne Gacy, Jr., has some… themes, and i feel like i should mention that, but i wouldn’t call it the same due to the nature of the song

to be fair there’s probably more but i haven’t listened to most of Age of Adz (only Impossible Soul, which is pretty… woman lovin’) or Michigan (at all, actually, a tragedy, since i live there)

Hey! Could you write a Saphael drabble based off "you wanna dance?" I never knew I needed this is in my life, but here we are =)

I got the idea for this prompt fill from this song, which just sounds like a really cheesy song that would be played at a highschool reunion. Hope you like it!

“You want me to do what?” Raphael hadn’t really been listening to Simon’s rant, like he never did. But when he hears the words accompany and fake boyfriend, his attention is immediately drawn back to the fledgling in front of him.

Simon groans in frustration and shows Raphael the letter he’d been holding the whole time.

“There’s a highschool reunion this weekend and I can’t show up alone. Please?”

“Why dont you ask Clary as your fake date?” Raphael asks, even though it pains him just speaking her name around Simon. The fledgling seems to have finally gotten over Clary and now he’s purposely pushing him back into her arms because he’s too insecure about Simon to act on his feelings for him.

My opinions on Andy Black, The Shadow Side.

So the long awaited single, and album have almost arrived. I myself was very very excited for the album, and was really looking forward to it. 

They dont have to understand was released and to me it was pretty good. Not exactly what i was used to from him but i still liked it and listened to it more then i had too. 

Then We dont have to dance came and i was immediately skeptical. They dont have to understand, we dont have to dance? What can we do andy? All jokes aside, I really didnt like we dont have to dance. For me, being a metal lover, it was way too poppy and the only part i liked was this part:

“You’re never gonna get it
I’m a hazard to myself
I’ll break it to you easy
This is hell, this is hell
You’re looking and a’ whispering
You think I’m someone else
This is hell, yes.
Literal hell.” 

At first i didnt but it eventually got stuck in my head but for me the rest of the song is very processed and repetitive, but of course, i didn’t absolutely hate it. But i certainly havent listened to it for fun.

Now ive listened to stay alive and i am praying that the rest of the album is better then this awful song. I love andy, and i love his lyrics on bvb but i cant help but think that he is trading in music for fans because this is awful, processed, pop music and i hate it. 

I can hardly listen to the first part with the oohs it kills me, so cheesy. Then the rest of the song is hardly an improvement. i did enjoy matt skiba’s vocals on it, but the song to me was just awful, processed, and totally studio pop bullshit.

The whole thing really bothers me. The names are not close to creative. I mean come on, we dont have to dance, they dont have to understand, stay alive? Not to mention The Shadow Side? Thats the best he could come up with? I doubt its just him making the decisions though and can only hope the bvb album is much better. I suppose him being happy in his work is whats important but i cant help but feel like this is all a ploy for more fans because the pop industry is where they all seem to be and thats where it seems this album is headed.

people need to realize theres a difference between being triggered and offended …. like for example, im triggered by certain songs. but if people listen to those songs, i dont tell them “hey you can’t listen to that song ever again because it triggers me”, because that’s just silly 

on the other hand, though, if someone is saying something like “lesbians are disgusting and ugly” then YEAH im gonna be offended, and yeah i’m gonna tell you to stop, because you are being offensive on purpose, and lesbophobia is something i cant really avoid 

and i think that’s where the whole “if we respected what people were offended by, we wouldnt be allowed to talk, ever!!” thing comes from. like no!!! understand the difference between triggering and offending someone !!!!!!! 

someone being triggered by something doesnt mean it’s inherently bad either, or that you’re not allowed to like the thing; it just means you should avoid exposing the person to the thing, thats literally it!!! 

and you could even compare it to allergies, for example. if a person is allergic to nuts, that doesnt mean you cant enjoy peanuts, that doesn’t mean you’re an awful person for eating peanuts, that doesnt mean theyre inherently bad; it just means that person is unable to be around them, and its not that hard to avoid exposing people to something they’re allergic to
