Ben Kweller - On My Way
As promised, part two of three.
Ben Kweller - On My Way
I Need You Back I love the riff in this song. True to all of BK's music, it's so upbeat and catchy. You can't help but tap your feet.
Favorite line: "Like a ghost on his darkest visit, you got my soul, now baby why is it gone gone gone? Take it from me."
Hospital Bed You know, it's really hard to come up with words to use other than "catchy." But that's what this is. One of my favorite songs, I love the change of pace in this song. Not only in the music, but the lyrics as well.
Favorite line: "Words hit much harder than bullets from a gun."
My Apartment Meh. Not one of my favorites. I can relate to the love of a safe haven, wherever it may be, but I'm not sure that it warrants it's own song.
Favorite line: "New York's the place where the sidewalks know my face."
On My Way is one of his most popular songs, and probably my second favorite. I love the transition from verse to chorus to verse, and the lyrics are just wonderful.
Favorite line: "I'm in love with someone who's as pretty as a flower.
Her life gives me power so I'm buyin' her a ring."
The Rules If I had a nickel for every time I've belted out this song in the shower... It's a fun one.
Favorite line: "Show me all the rules girl, I just want to get 'em wrong."
Down Another one you won't find me looking to play. It's not bad, mind you, just not as good as others.
Favorite line: "I am selfish without you."
Living Life Kind of sounds like it could be the theme song to a sitcom. Not just any sitcom, but a good sitcom. It's a pleasent song, very sweet.
Favorite line: "I've never minded where you're going, I know that change is part of you."
Ann Disaster I love this one. It's the "don't fuck with me" song of an otherwise soft album. The simple chorus, "I know what you want, you want a piece of me," pops into my head at random times throughout the day.
Favorite line: "You can tell a thousand lies. But you can't hide or surprise your future."
Believer Oh, how this one makes me sigh. So sweet, so simple. It's a beauty. <3
Favorite line: "You speak to me without speaking. You touch so I can feel. With your strength I am stronger, at last I know I'm real."
Hear Me Out I love the harmonica in this song. The lyrics are less than inspiring, but it's still alright.
Favorite line: "Breaking the Rubik's cube, making me lose the beat."
Different But the Same Nice piano intro. Slower, beautiful lyrics; a decent conclusion to a good album.
Favorite line: "Lust in favor, you can win."
