Featured Song: Hear You Me

All the music I’ve featured so far has been metal, but I also enjoy some alternative rock from time to time.

Today I thought I’d share a song by Jimmy Eat World. Like many alt-rock bands that I like, I discovered Jimmy Eat World through the T.V. show One Tree Hill, which I used to watch back in the day, and which made it a point to feature decent music in its soundtrack.

“Hear You Me”, from their breakout album Bleed American, is definitely one of Jimmy Eat World’s more low-key pieces. It’s said to be written in memory of two girls who ran a fan club for contemporary alt-rock band Weezer and pased away in a tragic car accident.



Featured lyrics:

And if you were with me tonight
I’d sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big,
God wouldn’t let it live

Ah, such a sad and beautiful song!
