AotD: Relient K


2. Apr. 2010, 22:57

Pick an artist from your library every day (or whenever you get around to it).
Answer the following questions, add factoids as desired.

1. Relient K
2. Fun, pop melodies; with a rocking, driving, punk/ska guitar sound. Dancy rhythms. Catchy lyrics, sometimes comedic, sometimes story-telling, sometimes deep and Christian. Tight vocal harmonies, which makes me happy being a choir kid and all. :)
3. My sister got their album Two Lefts Don't Make a Right... But Three Do, turned on all the random party lights she accululated over several Chistmases and birthdays, and we hopped around on the bed dancing like maniacs. I asked her who the band was, and from then on we shared an affinity for RK, probably the first real band I ever liked.
4. Mmhmm because it was more emotionally connected overall than any of their previous albums and I identified with it closely in my youth years.
5. Listening to TLDMRBTD non-stop on the way to California for my 8th grade school trip. It felt right, their sound is so California, eternally reminds me of the beach. Mmm.
6. Because when I saw the thumbnail I was like "Is that a sandwich? I really hope he's holding a sandwich. They need some random pictures." But then I saw it was a puppy and I thought it was cute and kind of laughed to myself that I thought it was a sandwich. :)
7. "You give me hope,
And hope it gives me life
You touch my heavy heart,
And when you do you make it light
As I exhale I hear your voice
And I answer you,
Though I hardly make a noise
And from my lips the words I choose to say
Seem pathetic,
But it's a fallen man's praise
Because I love you
Oh God, I love you
And life is now worth living
If only because of you
And when they say I'm dead and gone
It won't be further from the truth" -When I Go Down
It was really hard to decide, but this is probably my favorite of their songs because of the chords, melody and lyrics.
8. WANT TOOOO!!! I'm not as crazy about their newer stuff, but they're still good. Maybe they do some older stuff still too.
Fun fact: Their name is from a Plymouth Hoopes used to own, but spelt with an "A" instead of an "E".
