I was having trouble writing this so I decided to erase every single word and start from scratch. I’m making it sound more dramatic than it really was. It was only 87 words, but I really enjoyed that Dharma and Greg joke, and to think no one will ever get to see it really eats at the soul I don’t have. However the day has not been a complete loss. I figured out a way to warm up my feet. I shall sit on my socks. I will let you know how it turns out later.
This is going to be an unconventional review of sorts. There’s a very good chance by the end you will have learned nothing about any of the four songs on the EP, but at least I will have linked you to the songs and hopefully you’ll have listened to at least one or two and share your thoughts with me, or at least for no other reason than being bored you could call me an idiot, even if you really enjoy the songs. It’s not that hard. Just write the three words “You’re an idiot’, click ‘post comment’ and voila, I get to know I’m an idiot, and you might get some enjoyment because people tell me it’s very pleasurable to make fun of me. So if you get nothing else for this post at least listen to some good music and call me an idiot.
The first song on the EP is Favorite Girl. This is certainly an upbeat happy song. This song is more enjoyable if you happen to be in love with someone, as opposed to being a nasty old curmudgeon such as myself. But nonetheless I still enjoy the song. It’s hard to say how much I like this song, or really any of the songs on the EP, because when I first started listening to The Icarus Account I originally only had about five or six of their songs on my ipod, and the other songs I just thought were okay, but as the months progressed I started to find the good in other of their songs and now I have 18 of their songs on my ipod, not counting the four from this EP. So in a month from now I could like any of these four songs considerably more than I do right now, that’s not to say that I don’t like them now. I liked Dear Love, More To Me, Closer To You and Anchors Away when I first heard them, but it took awhile before I loved them as much as I do now.
By the way, I figure now is the apt time to mention this, you can listen to almost all of their songs on their youtube page, which hopefully I linked there, and you can listen to the songs on the EP their too or at their purevolume page and probably their myspace page too or somewhere or other, or you could be old fashion and buy the EP or any of their other songs on Amazon or itunes. The EP is only four dollars. That’s less than it costs to get a handy from the crazy Korean man behind the Vietnamese restaurant next to my house. Why a Korean man is behind a Vietnamese restaurant I’ll never know. Why he’s giving hands jobs for so cheap, sadly I do know. Oh yeah, at purevolume.com/theicarusaccount you can download Favorite Girl for free. I know if he had a computer that Korean man would.
I’m going to make the rest of this short and to the point because I’m running out of time. Time for what, I’m not quite certain. Come Back Home is okay, the last part of the song is my favorite. Sunshine and Rain is good, and it’s very possible that a month from now it will be my favorite song on the EP, and Yellow Shirt is at the moment my favorite song on the EP.
Now I know this was a half hearted review, and you want your time and money back. Well I can’t give you your time back, and even though I technically didn’t take your money, I’m going to give you something better than money, Amazon mp3 money. My friend who is a geek…I mean nice guy finds a lot of deals online and recently he found a promotional code for Amazon.com for three dollars that you can put towards buying mp3s. All you have to do is click on the link provided, enter the code that will be on the page and you’ll have three dollars towards mp3s added to your account. You can thank my friend by visiting his wordpress site techymarketer.wordpress.com and telling him thank you – for the love of God be funny about it and don’s specify why you’re thanking him – or you can just spam the hell out of his site, either way I’m happy.
Free $3 from Amazon code link…[expires November 29th, 2010, so hurry]
Hmm, so now you have three dollars to spend at Amazon on mp3s, but unfortunately The Icarus Account’s EP Sunshine and Rain costs four dollars, so whatever shall you do? I know, since you can download Favorite Girl for free on their purevolume page you can use the free three dollars I just gave you to buy the other three tracks on the EP. Technically you can put the money towards any mp3s on Amazon, but it’d be nice if you at least bought one of The Icarus Account’s songs since I mentioned them here, just for the love of God don’t buy any Lady Gaga songs or I will be forced to punish myself shamefully for accidentally doing her evil bidding.
This song isn’t on the new EP, I just love it so damn much in such a terribly sad way
