Jimmy Eat Good

I went from being a luke fan of Jimmy Eat World to a big fan thanks to their performance on the Dean Blundell Show this morning on 102.1 The Edge.  In particular, it was their acoustic version of ‘Coffee and Cigarettes’ that resonated with me.  The combination of the simple chords played on an acoustic guitar, the almost haunting backup vocals and the relatable lyrics of this song is what sold me on the band.  With so much garbage music dominating the mainstream music scene these days it is nice to see real bands like Jimmy Eat World play real songs about real things that actually mean something.

 

This contrasts greatly to the stellar music produced by that bitch slapping Justin Bieber who actually references Twitter and TMZ multiple times in his song ‘Kiss and Tell” and Lady Gaga who can’t sing a song without saying “Disco Stick” in it.  We get it…. You’re talking about a boner… Just say boner from now on.

  1. That song has definite open mic potential, buddy. Polish up your falsetto for the female part and I’ll bring in the bass…obvi.

  2. I’ll bring the assorted percussion

  3. Agreed, Lady Gaga should throw the word boner in their way more. I would by her iTunes album just for that entertainment value.
