Hoobastank – You Before Me

Standard

As far as love songs go, I much prefer this to The Reason.

You Before Me

Tell me everything you need
All the secrets that you keep
Even if it takes all day
Even if it takes all night
I can put the world on hold
So you and I can be alone
Even if it takes all day
Even if it takes all night

I would do anything for you
I always will put you before me
You before me
Never a thing I’ll ask of you
I always will put you before me
You before me

Lay your head down next to mine
By your side I feel alive
Tell me that you’ll stay all day
Tell me that you’ll stay all night

I would do anything for you
I always will put you before me
You before me
Never a thing I’ll ask of you
I always will put you before me
You before me

Say the word and I’ll be there
Say the word and I’ll be there

Tell me everything you need
All the secrets we can keep
Even if it takes all day
Even if it takes all night

I would do anything for you
I always will put you before me
You before me
Never a thing I’ll ask of you
I always will put you before me
You before me

Say the word and I’ll be there

Hoobastank – Hagerstown MD – July 6 2015

Standard

When you walk into a bar to ask about door times for a show and the band you’re there to see is doing soundcheck and then the lead singer walks by you as you sit outside, waiting to go back in and you’re knitting, this is what happens.

Hey, I had hours to kill. In my defense, Doug did say it was impressive…

Also, this show. Oh. Em. Gee. These guys are so good and Doug Robb sounds amazing live. Also, I’m sure that when I go through my pictures, more than 50% of them will be Dan Estrin’s feet. I have a thing for his pedal work.

Hoobastank Concert Photo Contest

Standard

UPDATED  Contest is over. I was 6th place in voting but the guys get to decide what pics they like best. I would hope that Dan likes his feet…

Hoobastank is coming out with a new album in September. They’re running a contest right now on Facebook for tour photos. I’ve been to several shows and as I have a thing for guitars and pedals, I usually stand near Dan Estrin, guitar player extraordinaire. I end up with alot of photos of his feet. The pic I’ve entered in the contest is from 2006. I was so enamored with this picture that it’s been the wallpaper on all my computers since.

If you could take a moment and vote for me, that would be awesome! Thanks.

 

Hoobastank – This is Gonna Hurt

Standard

Hoobastank is coming out with a new album this summer – Fight or Flight. The first single is This is Gonna Hurt. Video is very cool – just the lyrics but they move along to the beat of the music.

Looking forward to seeing them in Baltimore on July 20 – ten years and one day from the first time I saw them live and met them for the first time. Kayleigh and I met them four times through meet and greets over a period of  four years. It was fun to see her grow up with them. Would love to get the same chance with Mel. (Updated 7/13/12, 5 pm -How sad is it that I knew a show was cancelled a good 12 hours before the venue did? People in charge, I’m not sure what you’re playing at but the only way to get the word out about new Hooba music is to let the boys play live shows. Cancelling half the scheduled dates is a pretty sucky move.)

Hoobastank – From The Heart

Standard

I’m in a cleaning frenzy today and I clean faster when I have music to listen to. Decided on Hoobastank and put them on. When I’ve neglected them for a while, and then listen to them again, I’m amazed how awesome they are.

From the Heart is one of the songs that just resonates with me. Wonderful message – oh how I wish I had had them in high school to listen to. Alas, the boys were still in elementary school at that time.

No official video for this so I’m picking one that isn’t all anime.

But they kept on saying we’d never
Amount to anything
All of the dreams we’ve built up from the ground
They never believed them
They just tore them down
We will rebuild them from the start
We will rebuild them from the heart

Pieces by Hoobastank

Standard

Pieces by Hoobastank – This song just makes me want to jump up and down. Have I mentioned that I’m 40 and about as close to a soccer mom as you can get without actually having a child who plays soccer? I can’t help myself, I become a spring every time I see them perform this in concert. It’s also on my Walking Playlist and I’m able to up my speed on the treadmill as soon as I hear the opening. I love the effects pedal that Dan Estrin uses at the beginning. I wish there was a way to type the sound he makes… “Suffocating, sinking further almost every day. Barely treading water, knowing I will not give up, I will not give up. I will not give up.”

(FYI – there was no official video for this song but found a nicely edited one set to Anime.)

I love watching his feet at concerts. How weird is that? He keeps them very busy.
