Today this blog has reached 10,000 reads, and, for that reason I wanted to thank you guys for that. Because, honestly, checking out my blogs today and seeing that this one had reached 10K reads just made my day. And there’s no doubt that it’s because of you, those ones who read this blog, whether it’s since 2013 when I created it or who have just discovered it.
I know it might seem like it’s no big deal, but for me it is. So thank you so much for that.
To commemorate that I’m going to talk a bit about me and The Fray. Since I’ve been posting for almost two years now I’m not sure if I’ve talked about this, so, if I have, let me know.
I’m going to talk about how I discovered The Fray and how I got “obsessed” (as people say) or just how I became a fan of this awesome band.
I remember listening to their song “How to Save a Life” for years in the radio or in one recompilation CD my mom had on her car, but without knowing the band or the name of the song. It was the typical song you like but never try to search it or something.
I got more interested into the song after listening to it on my favorite TV show (Grey’s Anatomy), and I started paying attention to the song. I started to understand its meaning (English isn’t my mother language), and got into the song more and more. After that I finally searched the song on the internet (I didn’t know the title so I just searched it as I could).
The more I listened to the song the more I related to it and loved it. I searched for more songs by that band until my phone was full of their music. Every single one of their songs were perfect for some moments, they expressed what I couldn’t and it felt like they knew me. It was like feeling that someone understood me without having to share my feelings – it was more than amazing.
My love for them became bigger and bigger, I watched hundreds of interviews, read lots of them as well, trying to find out everything I could about them. And, since I had seen that there weren’t much pages or blogs about them, I decided to create one about them to share with the world everything I knew about them.
Thanks to them I didn’t only find a place where I felt safe and felt understood, but also I got into good and meaningful music. I started getting into more bands which, like them, really sang about something worth singing. And also they’ve taught more than I can even say. I’m not sure what would have been everything like for me, but I do know that I wouldn’t be the same person – in a good sense.
I wish I could thank them one day for everything they’ve done for me.
How did you get to know The Fray?
Also below I'm posting a photo of my fray CDs! Which ones do you have? ;)
