[Tuesday's Tunes]

I swear, I just get a kick out of Tuesday's Tunes.  The search to find a perfect song is just too fun.  Ya'll, I've STILL got Blurred Lines stuck in my head but since I used that last week, I'm going to have to pick a new one.

Hmmm...today I decided on one from My Chemical Romance.  The song is about two lovers whose relationship slowly withers away until one leaves the other alone.  It's such an emotional song and the video is completely beautiful.  The song is slower and more of a ballad than most MCR songs, but it's still a great song.  If the video for "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" made me have a schoolgirl crush on Gerard Way, well, then this video cemented it.  (Just look at that face.)


As a fan, I'm pretty unhappy that the band broke up.  As a 31 year old, I realize that I sound like a teenage groupie.  It is what it is, I guess.  I've always been very passionate about music & the feelings and memories songs can evoke.  My Chemical Romance music makes me feel alive.  I put it on when I work out or clean the house because it peps me up and gives me energy.

I'm linked up for Tuesday's Tunes at Leslyn's Lovely Life.  Pick a song and come link up with us!
