Review: "CRASH & BURN" - YOUR BEST FRIEND'S FAVORITE BAND
Love is a powerful feeling. It can add a new sense of happiness into your life to care for another person. At the same time, this happiness can also come with harsh consequences. When the two parties become invested in one another, it can create tunnel vision. As the relationship progresses at lighting speed, the people involved stop paying attention to what’s going on around them, and they don’t notice until it’s too late. Your Best Friend’s Favorite Band sings about this phenomenon in his song titled (very fittingly) “Crash and Burn.”
I liked the strumming guitar melody that the song starts out with. I also like how the music builds throughout the song. It starts off with the guitar strumming and gets loud by the end. It’s as if the music is illustrating the crash that Your Best Friend’s Favorite Band is singing about. Additionally, I liked the lyrics at the end of the chorus where he sings, “Crash, crash, crash and burn.” These lyrics are a catchier take on the song’s title. It sounds like a line out of a hit boy band song. Even though it seems overly simple, it’s the part of the song that gets stuck in your head and makes you want to listen to it again.
I expected Your Best Friend’s Favorite Band to consist of more than one person. It’s still a super cool name. If you want to hear more of him, check out his other song called “Time of Your Life.” It’s very optimistic sounding, something to lift your spirits. The melody makes me think of running barefoot on a sandy beach. It’s too bad that I wasn’t anywhere warm for spring break!
