A Tale of Icy Driveways.

I am listening to Cinema Bizarre's acoustic version of 'Lovesongs (They Kill Me)'. I never would have expected to hear this song in acoustic, but... It's beautiful. It's so interesting; same lyrics, but an entirely different feel to the song. I think this version is much... Sadder. Like the rock version kind of seemed like a complaint, but I can actually feel the pain in the music with this version.
For you who do not know: Cinema Bizarre is my absolute favourite band.
And they just broke up.
Don't worry, I'm not going to go off and cry or anything. ;) I respect their decision, because they, of course, know what's best for themselves. They're very young (20-23, I believe), and have so many more things to do in their lives. I sure wouldn't want my entire life (or at least my youth) to be dedicated to one thing. Like Strify (the lead singer) said in an interview:
"What has always scared me the most is to stand still and not develop any further. I think you can develop through change by experiencing new things, by trying new things. I don't want to remain inside the same grid and always live after the same pattern. In that case my soul would wither."
-Jack E. Strify
I completely agree with this; it applies to me as well.
However, even though I understand and respect their decision, it does not mean that I can't be sad for a little while. ;) They were a huge part of my life.
Oh, I wish they had come to my city once more before they disbanded! I was never able to see them in concert!

Insanity! Insanity! Insanityyyyyyyy!! Where could I find this version?

I wouldn't be surprised if any one of them stayed in the music business. I still wonder what happened to Lumi, though.

At least they came to your city at all!

It's on their MySpace music player. Recently they've been putting up acoustic versions of their songs, but I never did listen to them. I guess now I can see why they put them up. Like a parting gift? xD Maybe not, but it worked out nicely.

I do hope that at least some of them stay in the music business. I can definitely see Strify taking up a solo career (I doubt the music would be my taste, though). It'd be cool if Yu stayed (I wonder if he can sing?).
Hmm... I know that on their BANG! album, Luminor sang some newer songs or something, just for the album, but I have no idea what's up with him. I'll research that.

Haha, yeah, it's amazing that they were an hour and a half from me, even if I couldn't see them. ^^; So close! They didn't come to your state at all?

:o MUST. GO. LISTEN!! *runs off.*

I'm not sure... If Strify did most of the recent music, I'm not sure the lyrical style would hit me so much. But I guess it's a trial-and-error thing. We have to try before we'll know. Hmm.. I have no idea what Yu'll do.

Courtney, I'm not sure if anybody comes to West Virginia.

I think Yu would do rock. I remember him saying once, when the band was talking about what kind of parties they like, that he loves rock parties.

XD True, true. I guess WV is worse than where I live. At least we have a major car industry! (That's failing.)
