Anyone listen to Bright Eyes?
    #2034147 - 10/22/03 11:23 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Probably my favorite band of all time is Bright Eyes. The emotion in Conor O'Berst's voice is amazing. Deseparacidos, his other band, isnt bad either, just more indie-rock than folk music. What do you think?

I like Deseparacidos a bit better, although Bright Eyes is good if you can get past the whining...They do have some amazing songs though, my favorites are probably False Advertising and The Calender Hung Itself.

I'm in Omaha, so I get kind of sick of hearing about Conor all the time though. :smirk:

I don't like bright eyes. The songs are too alike, and only sometiems is Conor's voice appealing. A song I really love by them however is "Going for the Gold".

I saw bright eyes live when they came through my town, and he had all those extra dudes and chicks on stage with him, almost like an orchestra, and it was amazing. thumbs up.

I like them. Their first song I heard was A Perfect Sonnet:

lately i've been wishing i had one desire
something that would make me never want another
something that would make it so that nothing matters
all would be clear then
but i guess i'll have to settle for a for a few brief moments
and watch all dissolve into a single second
and try to write it down into a perfect sonnet
or one foolish line
because that's all that you'll get so you'll have to accept
you are here and then you're gone
but i believe that lovers should be tied together and
thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather
and left there to drown
left there to drown
in their innocence
but as for me i'm coming to the final chapter
i read all of the pages and there is still no answer
only all that was before i know must soon come after
that is the only way it can be
so i stand in the sun
and i breathe with my lungs
trying to spare me the weight of the truth
saying everything you have ever seen was just a mirror
and you've spent your whole life sweating in an endless fever
and now you are laying ina bathtum full of freezing water
wishing you were a ghost
but once you knew a girl and you named her lover
and danced with her in kitchens through the greenest summer
but autumn came, she disappeared
you don't remember where she said she was going to
but you know that she is gone because she left you a song
that you don't want to sing
we're singing i believe that lovers should be chained together
and thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
and left there to burn in their arrogance
but as for me i'm coming to my final failure
i've killed myself with changes trying to make things better
but i still ended up becoming something other than what i had planned to be
now i believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
and layed entwined together on a bed of clover
and left there to sleep
left there to dream of their happiness

Conner Oberst has the worst voice I've ever heard. Seriously, almost all of his music sounds like a joke to me. I don't like to judge people's musical tastes, but I'm sorry, if you think Bright Eyes has any semblance of talent then you haven't listened to very many good bands.

If you like folk stuff try Nick Drake. His album "Pink Moon" is absurdly good. If you want it just PM me and I'll give it to you. Peace.
