Why Don't You Tell Me What You Mean

One thing I can seem to count on is music when I am in one of my moods. There just always seems to be a song to either embrace your bad mood or even cheer you up.  Not to mention, so often a song can bring you back to a special memory.  So what is the soundtrack to my life?

I have a very wide taste in music from alternative to musicals and almost everything else in between. One of my favorite bands currently is The Airborne Toxic Event and I am especially obsessed with their new song "One Time Thing".  It is one of those songs you can feel pulse through your body; you just can't seem to play it loud enough.  You want to sing along at the top of your lungs because you feel like it has stolen you thoughts.

"Why don't you tell me what you mean" is one of my favorite lines in the song.  Wouldn't dating be so much easier if the other person would just tell you what they mean.  The games that go along with dating are exhausting!  We spend so much time trying to figure out what the other person wants or if it is more than a "One Time Thing".

I'm not sure if it is my anxiety, being a woman or just part of life but it is hard not to over analyze every little detail when dating.  You are constantly looking for "that sign" is this real?  It just seems like dating would be so much easier if we all told each other the truth even if it hurt for a bit.  I think of all the nights I wasted wondering if there was more to a relationship.  Yeah it would have sucked for a bit if they said it was a "mistake" but it would save a lot of questioning.

I guess when I finally get back into the dating world, I am going to try and practice what I preach. He also is also going to have to love music and especially The Airborne Toxic Event because they put on an incredible show and I look forward to seeing them as much as possible.  I saw them in October at The Rave in Milwaukee on a girls road trip.  I even went home with a souvenir:


I would like to say I caught it but I have no talent for catching it landed at my feet.  I almost went home with a drum stick but to prove my lack of catching it bounced off my forehead and I guy who looked very much like a "Weasley" from Harry Potter ended up catching it.  It was an amazing night that I got to share with my best friend.

If you are interested in checking out new music I definitely recommend checking them out - they even have a new album coming out the end of February.  Here are my top five songs from them:

1.  Somewhere After Midnight                            
2.  One Time Thing
3.  Hell and Back
4.  Wrong
5.  Bride & Groom
