100 Word Challenge For Adults – “April”

1212310211

I didn’t do the last prompt, because nothing would come to me at all.. Actually nothing wanted to come for me everytime I went on here last week! This is an “easy” prompt, it’s just one word. Am I the only one who saw this word and instantly the song from Bambi started playing in your head?

Spring may start in March but nothing really blossoms and the temperature doesn’t warm up until the middle of April. This month makes me think of the color pink – not a hot pink, but a nice pastel shade The only way I can explain what I feel in this month is when a baby is born. Everything is new and things will slowly but surely change drastically. You want to get out and explore just like a newborn learning how to crawl. The sun is warm like a mother’s embrace and the smell of BBQ is better than baby food.

Song Review: “Failure” by Breaking Benjamin

Am I the only one who is beyond happy that Breaking Benjamin is back together again? Granted, not all of the members are back…only Benjamin is the original member at the moment, but still I’m happy that the actual band is back on radio airways again. I have been one of those fans that ever since they started playing acoustic shows, I’ve been waiting for the words, “we’re back with a new song.” And when I heard it was released, in true Meghan fashion, it took me three days to finally find it on the radio and listened to it.

Everybody has favorite bands and singers that they wish they’d never change the direction of their music, as far as tone of the lyrics and sound. I’m not one of those people. I love change in music, that’s why I’ve been able to get into so many genres over the past several years. When I heard Breaking Benjamin was getting back together, I was hoping for a change in their music. I hate listening to the same sound over and over again. Their brand new song “Failure” is ultimately a failure to me. It sounds like their older stuff, like “Breath” and “So Cold” and I think it’s somewhat insulting to the former members to use the same tone of riffs on the guitars on their new songs. Although, I feel this I know that every true fan of BB will love this song and it will make a great comeback song for the band. I just don’t like it. Sorry not sorry!

What do you think? Does it sound like their older songs? Were you hoping they’d make a change in their music too?
