My Chemical Romance - Helena (Acoustic)
It’s been a while since I’ve been listening to any of their music (and a few years since I’ve actively - and excessively - listened to their albums). Back in the days, it must have been 2006 - 2009, I was an obsessive MCR fan, buying ALL the cds, posters, every magazine that featured them. They were by far my favorite band, an inspiration, a reason to start playing guitar (at which I still suck, but whatever ^^). I don’t know how many times I got frustrated while drawing Gerards face, how many shirts I ordered, videos and interviews I watched. They were my life, pretty much. MCR influenced me so much during my teenage years, that I still think of them dearly, as a guilty pleasure, every now and then.
I wouldn’t have expected it back then, but as years went by, my taste in music changed, I changed. I listened to their songs less and less, and for the last year or so, haven’t even thought about them at all really. Today, I discovered this, while looking up what had happened to all my favorite bands from 5 years ago on youtube. Apparently, they have changed as well, and I quite like it.
I cannot even describe all the feelings I have listening to their music again. It’s still so good, especially all the Acoustic versions they have up on their youtube. I feel like the “grown up” version of MCR has a little less anger, but all the more feeling and experience. Whoa, this is the weirdest feeling. I’m actually old enough now to have these almost … childhood flashbacks, I’m happy and I’m sad at the same time. Melancholic, nostalgic, ugh. Over the last few months, my life has been okay, but without any real highs or lows, and I’ve not been “feeling” much at all. So happy for all the emotions right now. MCR, I wouldn’t have expected it, but thank you for … still existing, I guess ♥
