Song of the Day 9/11/2013 “Terrible Things” by Mayday Parade

What comes into your head when someone says Emo, Screamo or Punk? Loud, abrasive and screamed songs. MayDay parade aren’t exactly screamo, but they are as Emo as it comes. Emo music has never been as elegant as “Terrible Things”
“Terrible Things” is about a love story, between two people who grow old. Its about true love just as much as Michael Heneke’s “Amour” was. Terrible Things is a beautiful ballad which is sad enough to bring you to tears.
Even if you aren’t a fan of emo, punk, or even alternative rock, you’ll be surprised at the majestic, vintage feel to Terrible Things. It sounds like something Elton John would write, and its truly impressive.
