as i sit here in the dark with a constant flow of Park
rushing from my headphones directly into my ears, i wonder...
i wonder why Park
is so good? ---that question, in my opinion, is fairly easy to answer. catchy upbeat lyrics (the tune of the lyrics, not the actual content) sung with emotion that you can feel through the speakers mixed with unbelievable guitar riffs that i still can't quite put my finger on...no words
a harder question i find myself asking is how Park
so good? the obvious answer to that would be ladd mitchell, but it takes more than one peice to create the music that a band produces (with a slight exception on It Won't Snow Where You're Going
where ladd pretty much did the whole thing, genius. it woudn't even be that hard of a question but when i put park on shuffle, literally every song that came on i would be able to say, "oh, that's my favorite song." every song has the potential of being a single, or even a hit...you can't say that with any other band.
a probably the million dollar question that i'll never have an answer to....
WHY ISN'T THIS BAND MORE POPULAR?!?
if you've never listened to or even heard of Park
-- i'm sorry.
well that's that, Park
is my favorite band...
