Currently Listening to An Angsty Music Throwback Favorite: Third Eye Blind

3eb – Ultimate Throwback!

Are you one of those people who chooses Third Eye Blind at karaoke? Or maybe you accidentally still remember all of the words to their songs when you choose the 90’s Alternative Throwback Playlist on Spotify? (Cause who uses Pandora?)

Not me, oh no. I am even worse.

I still play Third Eye Blind albums from start to finish on a regular basis. I’m serious. Their albums are always among the first 20 I download to my new device. I play Third Eye Blind, Blue, and Out of the Vein every time I fly on a plane. (Never gone to London, tho.)

Obviously my favorite scene in Yes Man is when Jim Carrey plays Jumper to Luis Guzmรกn. I’m totally thinking about this because that song came on right now. ๐ŸŽตPut the past away!๐ŸŽต

Third Eye Blind self titled album. Miss Moody Lilac.

If I can’t pick anything else to listen to and I’m not in the mood to slap on one of those premade radio stations or playlists, this is really my first choice. I can’t decide, so I do the things I did before.

Have you tried listening to this recently? It hits me in the feels. Something about nostalgia mixed with my very strange voyeurism regarding addiction. (Sorry, Mister Jenkins, I support your every part of your journey — I am just fascinated by the way drugs shape talent.) Doing crystal meth will lift you up until you break. ๐Ÿคท

My boyfriend is going to make fun of me for the 9 millionth time (the amount of times I’ve played this album since we’ve been dating alone.) Thanks A Lot, babe. How’s it going to be when you don’t know me anymore? Is that Good For You?

Still, I want to walk home alone with you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Currently taking a break from studying (Can I Graduate?!) before my 3 hour class to shower and I have this on full blast. Honestly, I’m procrastinating by writing this silly blog post. After, I’ll close my eyes and dream that I’m awake. Re-caffeinate. Then incinerate.

Did I get a little bit of every song from the album in this post?

I tried to make it seem as natural as possible, but I didn’t want to dilute any of the actual meaning, so it was harder than you think.

And I really am procrastinating by doing this, otherwise I’d make it more organic and now bother telling you at all.
