me: take me home: yearbook edition
K-friend: girl just let the flawlessness wash over you
and discuss every single track with me
Sent at 5:32 PM on Tuesday
me: this gchat may or may not turn into a blog post
K-friend: so thrilled
have you turned it on
i want to listen with you
me: "live while we're young" still catchy as hell
K-friend: LIVE BLOGGING
yes yes it is
K-friend: CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY~~~
me: and live while we're young
zayn is so flawless
K-friend: it frightens me how much i am in love with him
like i need to get a grip
okay "Kiss You"
woah! up beat
K-friend: by the way
is going to be the 2nd american single
that little things travesty is a UK single only
GOD BLESS AMERICA
liam's falsetto gives me life on this ho
me: so he's of some use in this band, is what you're saying?
K-friend: girl liam sang like all the first verses of every song on the other album
he arguably has the 2nd best voice/best voice depending on who you're talking to in the band
king zayn tho
thanks for giving me some knowledge
K-friend: i'm embarrassed by this knowledge
me: I think I can only recognize Zayn and Harry's voice, tbh
but maybe Liam now?
louis' is pretty distinctive too
it's pretty high and bright
me: is he the nasally one?
K-friend: he's the one that sang the bridge of this song
hmmm i'll point him out on another song
LITTLE THINGS CAME ON SKIP
are you ready for c'mon c'mon?
me: I'm forcing myself to listen to it again
K-friend: tell me when you are doing c'mon c'mon so i can press play
i will say
zayn and liam's harmonies
on this song
are to die for
me: if these girls they're singing about are 16, I'm going to...yell in feminist rage?
they're harmonies are lovely
K-friend: dimples in backs
i'm waiting for you to get to c'mon c'mon
me: dimples in backs? isn't that just everyone's back?
just because you made it acoustic doesn't mean it's significant
K-friend: could we please write that
in a card
and then send it to ed sheeran?
his entire oeuvre is bullshit like this
and yet 17 year olds think this shit is moving as all get out
me: he's like the new Birdie
K-friend: he wrote this fucking song
me: whose all
if it's slow, it's golden
K-friend: I CANNOT WITH BIRDIE
me: C'MON C'MON
me: ooooo, dance partay
K-friend: first verse
zayn is such a workhorse on thsi album
louis - singing all those "move a lil closer now"
harry show me what u all about
K I'MMA STOP CUZ I'M SCARING MYSELF
me: I love this
I can still do that with BSB and n'sync, tbh
K-friend: 2nd verse niall
me: I'm getting to know their voices~~~
K-friend: lol you areeeee
me: so niall is just breathy?
he's not the best singer at all
on they don't know about us
he has this sexy ass whisper part
where i'm juts like
me: who sings when the beat drops?
being a goddamn king
me: of course
it was good
K-friend: are we last first kissing?
cuz that first verse is liam
K-friend: bridge is prince harry
you can hear louis really loudly in the chorus
over most of the other guys
I could deffo tell that was prince harry
he's so ~scratchy
this song is so 14 year old journal
K-friend: the 2nd verse is niall adn then louis
me: did taylor swift ghost write it?
K-friend: then zayn bridging it and giving me the vapors
but there's not enough playing the victim
so probably not taylor
god i can't wait for you to hear change your mind
that is some taylor swift bullshit
K-friend: although liam's falsetto is bless
me: this is kind of BSB-ish
like, BSB filler with modern "ooo"s
K-friend: lol yesss
OMFG thsi next song is HILARIOUS
me: heart attack
I was all
why are they screamo?
this song is adorbs
me: can't even lie
it's all about the OW!
K-friend: i live for this jam i won't lie
but the bridge is so cute
~tryna be okay~~~
tryna be all right~~~
seein u with him
just don't feel rite.
me: your spelling, boo
K-friend: why am i so enamored with this shit like i'm 15?
me: your spelling
K-friend: they make me spell like i'm in an AOL chatroom i swear
me: we will rock youuuuuuuuuuuuu
K-friend: harry and louis kill this song
they sound so good on it together
me: ooo, pretty bridge
and i think he's usually talentless
but look at him growing up
zayn does like nothing on this song except for the runs at the end
me: who sings verse 2?
K-friend: yes ma'am
K-friend: YOU DID IT!
me: and louis has the lead on the bridge
boom boom CLAP
K-friend: i love this song
so goddamn much
me: this is unadulterated fun
K-friend: thank you.
me: I love pop music
K-friend: R O C K ME AGAIN
me: spell if, baby
K-friend: F U C K ME ZAYNNNN
K-friend: MY LIFE, CHOICES IT'S FINE
me: "change my mind"
is this niall?
K-friend: nah louis
K-friend: of COURSE
me: does niall sing anything?
K-friend: idk if on this song
liam's the chorus
with zayn for flawfree harmonies
me: "are we friends or are we mo-o-o-re"
use those jellyroll pens and write it out
with sad faces drawn in the o
let's be real
K-friend: yes zayn i want you to stay for the night
plz change ur mind 4 me
niall there you go!
me: this is such a sadsack song
"she's just not that into you, okay???"
K-friend: taylor swift type of fuckery in my opinion
me: "I would"
K-friend: this sassy ass acoustic guitar
i kinda love this song
but the lyrics
are so DUMB
like twilight levels of dumb
me: why does harry sound so old right now?
K-friend: his VFs got thick and fat
me: and the drums
K-friend: (like his dick) idk
omg the whistles
me: this is louis, y/y?
K-friend: then louis takes the 2nd part of the 2nd verse
K-friend: 27 tattoos~~~~~
me: I could hear the difference now
that had to throw him a bone, I guess
he's such a nonentity
"would he please u"
K-friend: louis sings the bridge
OH DAMN HEY HARRY
WITH THIS SEXY ASS LOW SOUND
I have to say, the basses in choir were always more awesome than the tenors
oh god over again
me: I have another ad, hold up!
K-friend: "said i'd never leave her cuz her hands fit like my tshirt"
oh damn ok
me: her hands fit like my tshirt?
K-friend: i am dying
it's ed sheeran
who wrote this shit
me: I can tell
this is not significant
this is dreadfuckingfull
"i can make your tears fall down like the showers that are british"
NEED THIS ON A PILLOW
me: "that are british"
"that are british"
K-friend: i can't breathe
this is my new favorite song
because this is hysterical
me: this is my reaction to this song: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v133/Drewski217/miscell/TFG/1eok8.gif
me: why are they occasionally bone thugs and harmony with these lyrics
K-friend: OMFG I HEAR THAT TOO
me: TOO MANY LYRICS
that are british
K-friend: herearesomanywordsrapidfire that are british
me: same joke
K-friend: omg the last line of that song
me: twin brains
K-friend: i cannot
me: "back for you"
is this some pop punk circa 2002?
K-friend: definitely an avril lavigne b-side
me: the chorus loses it
but the verses, totally
K-friend: yeah the chorus tries to be this epic
with string action
me: i'm not feeling this
it's reminding me too much of music in middle/high school
which i didn't like
K-friend: yeah it's totes filler
but i can tolerate it
me: tolerable, yes
K-friend: GOD YES THEY DON'T KNOW ABOUT US
I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR MY HUSBAND ZAYN KILL THIS
me: this cheesy ass piano riff is so winning
K-friend: THEY DON'T ABOUT THINGS WE DO
god this song is a spiritual experience
me: I LOVE YOU
they would just be jealous 'bout us
this is some boy band perfection
K-friend: it truly freaking is
UP ALL NIGHT
i see what you did there guys
i see it
K-friend: and also plugging their first album
I get it now.
me: although this song is >>>>>>>> than that whole album
me: I love that Zayn is the go to riffer
he truly is the JC of the band
maybe even the Brian
K-friend: OH SHIT GIRL
BRIAN WAS MY MAN
no wonder i'm obsessed.mp3 with zayn
does one direction have a Kevin?
they're all too baby to be Kevin
K-friend: well liam is supposed to be "daddy direction" because he sorta takes care of them all even though he's not the oldest
me: is this from fan fiction?
he says it in interviews
i WISH it was fanfic
me: also this chord progression in "summer love" is kind of surprising
K-friend: what is this bootleg country twang
in this song
me: is there twang?
K-friend: the chorus
is definitely giving me
taylor swift's earlier albums
me: is it the finger picking?
K-friend: this song is terrible
this is terrible
K-friend: it's not even good terrible
(that are british)
this is just like
um no thx
me: "she's not afraid"
K-friend: tight dress~~~~
Sent at 6:17 PM on Tuesday
me: can I confess I'm getting upbeat poppy music overload?
this song is not registering at all
Sent at 6:19 PM on Tuesday
i went to pee during it and now it's over
so that's how i feel about it
these bonus tracks aren't doign it for me
me: "kiss you on the mouth"
K-friend: there's a reason why they're bonuses i guess
this is the target version of the CD
the regular CD ends at summer love
me: "I've been waiting all this time to finally say it"
i don't really care
me: just shut up and move on
K-friend: this is kinda 80s synthy
and boring as fuck
K-friend: i'm a second from skipping
me: I'm powring through
zayn is not even saving this drivel
K-friend: i know right like
zayn you're trying hon
me: this is O-town levels of mediocre
K-friend: lmfao shit girl
that is some mediocrity right there
me: they were clearly the bottom of the boy band totem pole
slightly above LFO
let's be honest
even LFO had a hit
did o town ever?
IS IT ALL
OR NOTHING AT ALLLLL
K-friend: god i hate myself for remembering that
and that song was catchier than whatever this is
K-friend: can harry stop talking about girls in sexy dresses?
K-friend: this is slightly less low-budget than
the last 3 songs
but it's still pretty low budget
me: I feel like everyone on this song is a skipping record
because they keep repeating phrases
me: like they're lyrics
they just filled in the rest of the verse lines with the same exact lines
K-friend: maybe ed sheeran should write more songs
his lyrics are, um,
me: at leas they would 'MEET US AT THE CROSSROADS'
clearly this pop overload is going to my brain
I also want to point out not one of these songs is over 4:00
K-friend: i love their attack
just get in, slap a catchy hook and then get the fuck out before people can actually think about what you're singing
it's a great tactic
me: it truly is
K-friend: re-listening to over again
so i can lol
me: I'm still on "Still the One"
K-friend: holding the middle of my heart like a polo
is this kid
me: it's kind of holding my interest
Sent at 6:29 PM on Tuesday
overall, pretty good album
the bonus songs are bonus for a reason
me: stay away from ed sherenenenen
K-friend: stand out tracks?
for me it's kiss you, they don't know about us, rock me, and i would
but i have to give it up for over again because "showers that are british" is just
me: so true
I would toss in "heart attack" for adorableness
K-friend: oh my god how did i forget about
K-friend: how do i find someone young enough
to go to their concert in ----- with me
so i don't look like a damn grandma
