Knockout Song of the Week Vol. 2

As promised, here is the Knockout Song of the Week for this week. Before we get to that, though, I would like to remind you that HHI Volume Two comes out on Saturday! WOOOOOOOOOO!

Anywho, the music. This week’s song is “Play Crack the Sky” by Brand New. Metaphor at it’s finest. Literary devices in music tend to be used in the most trite manners. They reappear in different works. Not the case, here. This one is quite original. The opening part pulls you in as it is due to the sadness/desperation in the vocals. It is the ending, however, that knocks you out, with one of my favorite lyrics of all time:

“You know that you are not alone, I need you like water in my lungs.”

This one gives me chills every time. Enjoy!
