Marianas Trench

A is for Acadia by Marianas Trench

I got into Marianas Trench while I was in university and I used to listen to multiple albums on repeat while working in my university’s library. I think I actually first heard their music through some fanvids – I’ve discovered a number of great songs/artists through fanvids to be honest.

Acadia is one of my favourites because it’s that kind of nostalgic song, reminiscing the fun times with your friends, when you’d laugh about something and you can’t remember what caused the hilarity, but you know you had a great time.

Even though there’s people’s names in Acadia mentioned that I personally don’t know, I still get the feeling of togetherness and that joy when you have a random day or a couple of hours with some friends and have such fond memories of it.

I love the line “Every memory comes on, When I hear that old song” because there are so many songs that have strong associations with people, places or events for me, and as soon as I hear them I’m right back there.

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Ten Songs I Wish Were Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature run by BrokeAndBookish each week – I’m thinking I might not take part every week but just see if a week takes my fancy. This week is all about music and books and I’ve taken the idea of songs you’d like to see turned into a book and run with it.

You Don’t Own Me – Grace feat. G-Eazy

I could imagine this song becoming a book about a young person who gets out of an abusive relationship and realises that they deserve to be happy. Side note: this is currently my favourite song.

Tonight Tonight – Hot Chelle Rae

This would be like a party book. Maybe the story is all set over one night, crazy things happen and the lead isn’t sure if they’ll ever get that job or into that college that they desperately want but it doesn’t matter that one night. (more…)
