Anyone listen to Bright Eyes?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by munkycharmz, Jun 13, 2003.


  1. So.... I did a search but nothing came up. Anyone here listen to Bright Eyes? No real strong bass songs come to mind but songs are still listenable (is that a word). IMO hes the best young songwriter out there.
    any thoughts.

    I can't stand this guy. His voice sounds like hes constantly on the verge of crying. Take the annoyingness of dashboard confessional and multiply by 5 and you get bright eyes.

    Isn't he supposed to be a schizophrenic or something?

  7. I like Bright Eyes, but I wouldnt call myself a fan. As far as emo music goes, i think bright Eyes get too much praise.
     
  8. well, i think he's downright awful. but a lot of my friends like him. i'm more of a neutral milk hotel type.

    I would say Emo in essence of song writing cause hes a very very depressed guy, but I wouldn't say Emo in a musical stance. The music is very very good, they are talented musicians, slide guitar player, lap steel, a mandolin, vibraphone, drummer, keyboardist, bassist, very well choriographed, his voice is an aquiored taste, or a sound that some people just don't like. They are all very talented, and the metaphorical content of his lyrics are amazing, and I couldn't ever compare him/ them to Dashboard, he only has like 2 songs where it's just him singing and playing guitar.
    peace

  10. You should so go to hell for that.
     
  11. Even though I live in his hometown, I have never listened to him. Some people around here love him, but that might just be because he got some what famous and is from here. Might need to go listen to some of his music.

    :D But I like wesley willis!

    silly panda! :rolleyes:
     
  13. Wesley Willis would never go emo! It's impossible! He rocks to hard for emo. If he played emo, all the emo and indie kid's heads would explode and they'd poo their pants at how awesome he made their marginal music. And then their heads would explode and we'd have lots of burnt hair and scorched trucker caps (along with smelly pants) all over the place!!

    For shame! You should know that! :mad:

    well big will.. for your enjoyment

    wesley willis - I beat up an emo kid..

    I caught an emo kid on my property
    I saw him trespassing my sunny day real estate
    I reached into my pocket for a pistol
    I came after him and pistol-whipped his behind

    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid

    I beat that emo kid to a pulp
    I gave him a yell-down war hell ride
    I told him that I was going to kill him if he don't get off my sunny day real estate
    I gave five minutes to get in his pinto and hit the emotional road

    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid

    At 10:00 PM, he drove his pinto back to my sunny day real estate
    he jumped over my fence after dark
    He picked up a brick and shattered my window pane
    I sighted him doing it and reached for my pistol
    Suddenly, he jumped back in his pinto and took off like O. J. Simpson

    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid
    I beat up an emo kid

    Rock over london,
    Rock on chicago.

If he ever gets out of the hospital :bawl:. <3 Wesley Willis <3
