The meaning of life

No philosophy and no Monty Python. I just woke up this morning with Offspring‘s (a debut in the blog, by the way) song in my head and I decided to share with you. Hope it gives you energy for the rest of the day 😉

Teenage Dirtbag

Loser (film)Today I bring you another memory from some years ago that you might remember – Teenage Dirtbag, from Wheatus.

The song was included in the soundtrack of the film Loser, which features both Mena Suvari and Jason Biggs (you probably recognize them from another movie).

Hope you like it 😉

Good Riddance

About 6 or 7 years ago, my friend Pedro (a fellow from this blog) taught me how to play the guitar. He himself had started learning a couple of months ago and convinced me to join him in this lifetime trip. It didn’t take that much to convince me.

Until then, I was a “passive listener”, that is, I passively listened mostly to what the radios had to offer. Once I started playing guitar, I actively started discovering new songs and artists, many of them eventually turning into my repertoire.

One of the bands I first discovered by that time was Green Day, an American Punk Rock band you most probably know, that by the time was one of Pedro’s favourite bands. He used to play some of his songs – “Holiday” and “Basket Case”, mostly -, which I started doing as soon as I could. Good Riddance was their first song that I played, and I listened to it and played it  uninterruptedly!

I do not usually listen to it nowadays, but Good Riddance (or Time of Your Life, as it is usually called) is still one of my favourite songs and I can’t help to recall the great times I spent playing it with Pedro (and sometimes with David on the violin), either at our houses or at school, contributing to some friends’ delight and to others’ headaches.

Hope this brings you good memories, too!
