Emo, A New Dawn of Music?

I’m sure many of you have spot emo bands like Dashboard Confessional, Second Hand Serenade, My Chemical Romance etc. I’m a big fan myself (but I don’t Google artist out of curiosity, I just don’t).

For me, emo existed way before I was let out into this world, the early 80’s.

And Wiki confirmed (or rather agrees) with my hypothesis, Emo is actually from that era and not late 90’s. That explains why I’m easily swept off my feet when listening the old tune. And I thought I’m old fashioned.

Correction to younger generations: Gersang means deserted, not horny.

I guess it’s true what they say; To move forward, sometimes you need to go backwards.

ps: Tight schedule ahead! I’m missing my daily coffee dose.

nak tak 😛

perasan tak lagu2 melayu emo byk ‘play victim’? semua kesedihan salah so and so for tinggalkan so and so.

it’s nice to serenade on shifting the ‘blame’ to others.

bayangkan gersang or sesapa buat lagu ‘memang salah aku, tak perasan kau memang dah nak tinggalkan aku, sebab aku kuat marah, kaki pukul dsb’

ok, maybe not kaki pukul lah.

still its weird to write a song on ‘self blaming’ although it is sometimes the truth.

Eh, ade la lagu yg tak blame orang lain.

The thing about emo, it has double meaning. Unless the song writer choose to tell, you have to figure it out yourself.

But I agree, mostly shifting the blame to others.

ps: the AME last week, orang ckp ramai hot gile. rugi tak pergi. hahaa (but then again, no docs. Hampe..)

I’m not an emo fan.

But I have a release from Sunny Day Real Estate. Do checkout,bro. They lent their hand in bringing up the emo subgenre, from underground hype to mainstream surface. The Emo Papas, perhaps?
