my bloody valentine
My Bloody Valentine
is one of those bands that people get really obsessed with. I can still remember the first time that I ever heard them. After that first listen to Loveless I was forever addicted, forever devoted to the magnificence that is My Bloody Valentine...however, they broke up the same year that I finally discovered them. So I slowly came to terms with the fact that I would never probably see them live. I knew I would never see The Smiths perform live, but at least I had many Morrissey shows that more than made up for it. My Bloody Valentine is also one of those bands that brings people together, like we share thismy bloody valentine you made me realise common unbreakable bond. You just know which of your friends are fans and you don't really even have to talk about it. Since you know what it is like to be a fan you can figure out what it is like for others. If you are a My Bloody Valentine fan you have most likely listened to Loveless and Isn't Anything many times by yourself in your bedroom. You have probably listened to these records right before you go to my bloody valentinesleep. They have probably helped you overcome bouts of depression and just made you happy to be alive. They have spoken to you in a way that only really good music can, even though you can't really explain how. You have also probably listened to Loveless with your boyfriend or girlfriend during one of those special moments. I know I have said this before, but I really can't imagine my life without these albums. They are that good. They are that important.

"Eternal Flame"

Posted by Miss Ess, October 2, 2008 05:33pm | Post a Comment
The Bangles' "Eternal Flame" is so sugar-sweet it practically rots my teeth...but just like candy, I come back for more over and over again...

Actually, it is one of the many songs that intermittently play on repeat in my head. Seriously though, that song's been up there for years on a loop! Considering the title, the irony is not lost on me! "Eternal Flame" always comes back around somehow, and it's not like I am sitting around listening to Bangles records! Where does it come from?!


I'm really not quite sure why I still find it a moving song, why it stays up there in my brain, but in a way it is sort of comforting to know that when I hear the actual tune (or even just the version in my head), it has the the banglessame effect on me as it did when I was small. I never owned a Bangles album as a child and I haven't heard any of their other music probably since the 80s, but this song has just always stayed with me.

Now that I am fully revisiting it, I especially love how it gets all epic at the end with strings and the building vocals...the fact that the video includes fireworks is just too perfect (and 80s). Susanna Hoffs' vocals cannot be denied! Too bad the ladies didn't write this one themselves, but it's still a winner in my heart.

It will always remind me of being enveloped by a disco ball's mirrored reflections as I was roller skating at this tragically 80s rink and also playing in the basement at my cousins' house.

Oh...I guess I've carried it with me so I can conjure up that simpler time at any given moment in my constantly shifting adult life. Maybe I should go find myself a Bangles record after all...
