I’m going to stray into the world of alternative rock again, with another song from Jimmy Eat World.
Futures is a darker album than Bleed American, and that really shows through in today’s song, “Pain”, which is probably one of Jimmy Eat World’s angstiest works to date. Naturally, it is precisely this intensity that makes me like the song so much.
Lyrics and discussion can be found here.
I’m also going to give mention to a very memorable acoustic cover of this song that I came across on YouTube:
I find this cover very unique because, it addition to the cover artists obviously being quite talented, their interpretation of the song gives rise to a cover that has a very different sound and atmosphere from the original song, and yet is still very compelling. Kudos to them!
