And You Stood At Your Door With Your Hands On My Waist. And You Kissed Me Like You Meant It. And I Knew, That You Meant It. You Meant It.
Emotional scars and music are a funny thing aren't they? Like partners in crime. Even though years may have passed, you can hear a song and in an instant be transported back to a place you had long thought erased from your psyche. I guess that's why I like Dashboard Confessional. Packing enough passion and angst to fill a stadium, Chris Carraba has, over the years, honed a songwriting style that eerily taps into a wide range of emotions in a way that 99.9% of the population can relate to. No easy feat, I assure you. With a new album due next month entitled Dusk & Summer I thought it only fitting to revisit one of my favorite DC collections A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar. Even if you don't dig on Mr. C's music; considering him too twee-mo, (even though the likes of Gil Norton & Daniel Lanois have produced his records) you at the very least have to agree with me on one thing: the guy can sure title his albums well. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
Dashboard Confessional: Ghost Of A Good Thing
Dashboard Confessional: Hands Down
Dashboard Confessional: Hey Girl
Dashboard Confessional: Carry This Picture
