Jimmy Eat World is one of those bands for me that I can hear any song of theirs and feel this swelling in my chest, I don't know what it is but their music just hits me so hard. I really love the older stuff, my favorite songs are off Static Prevails, Clarity, and their split EP with Jebediah. I've had a harder time loving their new music, I thought their last studio album Futures was hit or miss, but the newest album they just released, Invented, is pretty damn good. I'm unbelievably excited to get to see them this week, I'm actually getting giddy writing this post and picking songs to share!
Because I'll be seeing them live in just a few days, I thought I'd share all live videos of some of my favorite songs. The quality might not be the best, but the thing to watch for is the crowd's excitement. I've been to lots of shows in my day, but I have never seen a crowd of people get so excited and sing along so loud as I have at the Jimmy Eat World shows I've seen.
(This is my [and my sister's] favorite song. Last time we saw them at the Metro, we were hoping they'd play this song, and as soon as it started Lauren and I grabbed each others hand and started jumping up and down and squealing like little girls!)
"Just Watch the Fireworks"
"For Me This is Heaven"
I really can't express how much this band and their music means to me. I love a lot of music, but nothing will ever compare to Jimmy Eat World in my eyes.
Oh, and the hair! How could you not love Jim's hair?!
Are you a fan of Jimmy Eat World? What are your favorite songs?
