Hello there everyone!
First of all, I want to apologize to anyone who follows this blog, because the last few months, I haven’t been posting here very frequently. Exams, and other projects I’ve had myself had got me a little away from this blog, which is definitely a shame.
Secondly, today I was thinking of a topic which would be good of discussion, and as well writing on here.
“I miss the old The Fray”
Who hasn’t said that? Who hasn’t thought that? I have thought that, I admit it. And a lot of fans more have. But, I’ve been thinking of that recently and this is what I come with:
I’m an artist. I’m not an artist as The Fray’s members are – I’m a writer. Okay, I’m not famous or anything, but I make (or try to make) art the way I can, so I think I kinda have a voice here. When I’m feeling down, what I write isn’t happy or positive at all. However, when I’m feeling good, I write positive and happy stories.
What do I want to say with this?
I think it’s pretty clear that when The Fray wrote albums like How to Save a Life and The Fray, they (or people around them) were going through tough times, for whatever reasons. Since The Fray has always been a band which expressed their own feelings through their songs, it’s clear that now – that they have more positive music and more happy vibes – they’re going through a good time in their lives. And I’m more than thankful for that. Because, this band, which has comforted us when we were feeling down with their music, deserves it!
You know what? It’s amazing, after all, that they experience with new kinds of songs and music. We all have ups and downs, and, if we have songs from The Fray not only for when we’re feeling down, but also for when we’re feeling good, that’s even better, isn’t it?
That’s what I think. They’ll always be a couple of kids who were up to no good ;)
What do you guys think?
