The Casualties  We Are All We Have

I honestly don’t know anything about The Casualties, but I’ve seen them last year and loved their energy on stage (also, these guys were surprisingly lovely haha). Had this song stuck in my head for a while today, so there you go :)
Enjoy, turn it up & dance like nobody’s watching.

Beatsteaks  I Don’t Care As Long As You Sing

You know those songs that you loved when you were younger but after a while you just forget about them and when you hear them again after a long time it’s like a flashback to your 14-Year-Old self?! That’s what this song is to me. Beatsteaks (once again a band from Berlin) released I Don’t Care As Long As You Sing in 2004 and just the other day me and my boyfriend looked up “old” music videos on YouTube and came across this song and I instantly fell in love with it (again).
So, here’s my favorite song of the week for y’all.
Enjoy, turn it up & dance like nobody’s watching.

Reel Big Fish  Slow Down

This week’s favorite song comes from my favorite band - the fabulous Reel Big Fish.
Why this song? you ask. Well, I was kinda stressing out about a lot of things this week, mostly school/uni related stuff and today, between great confusion about which classes I have to take next semester and a nervous breakdown, I told myself to just take a break. So I turned off the computer for a moment and put my ipod on shuffle. This song was the second or third song that came on and instantly calmed my nerves and put me in a better mood. Reel Big Fish just never fails to make me happy ;)
Enjoy, turn it up & dance like nobody’s watching.

Seeed  Walk Upright


So, yesterday my cellphone broke down and I had to take an old phone of mine with very little space for any files. That’s why I had to reduce the number of songs that I can listen to when I’m on my way somewhere to literally six songs…
Walk Upright by Seeed was the very first one I copied onto my crusty phone because it’s definitely one of my favorite songs lately and I don’t have a problem to listen to it more than one, two, three, four…times. It is just such a chill, yet passionate song. I love the rhythm, the melody and especially their voices.
Enjoy, turn it up and dance like nobody’s watching!

WEEKLY FAVORITE #4
Jon Snodgrass & Joey Cape   Jessica’s Suicide


 This week it was a little hard for me to pick a favorite song of the week just because I haven’t really listened to anything new that I haven’t posted on here already, so I decided to share one of my all time favorite songs.
Joey Cape (from Lagwagon & Bad Astronaut) and Jon Snodgrass (Drag the River) are two of my favorite singers ever. I love Jon's voice as it is, but together with Joey it just gives me goosebumps.

I saw Jon, Joey and Tony Sly together in Berlin for the first time in 2010. Since none of my friends agreed to go to the show with me, I wasn’t sure if I was gonna go at all, but then bought my ticket only a few hours before the concert (it was only like 10€) and it turned out to be one of the greatest shows I have ever been to. They played for about three hours. Each of them played their own set and in between they would play some popular No Use For A Name or Lagwagon songs together. I was sooo sooo glad I decided to go to the show and this song always reminds me of that great night :)
Enjoy, turn it up and dance like nobody’s watching!

The Living End in Berlin, September 3rd 2013

Last night I made my way to the Postbahnhof in Berlin to see one of my favorite bands again: THE LIVING END from Australia.

I saw them three times before (two full shows and one free acoustic show at the Ramones Museum in Berlin), all three times in 2009. So naturally I was super stoked to see them again after these four years. Since I had not been listening to their music a lot lately, I was excited to hear some of my favorite songs. That’s why I basically freaked out when they opened their set with “What would you do?”, one of my favorite songs, that I have never heard them play live before. Over all I loved the set list. They played a bunch of their older songs (such as “Second Solution”, “Pictures in the mirror”, “Killing the right”,…) which was more than appropriate since a good amount of the people that came to see them, were obviously fans since the late 90s when The Living End first came to Germany.
Since their latest album “The Ending is just the Beginning repeating” has not been release in Germany yet, they only played one song off of that record (“Machine gun”), which was fine by me, because I felt like this song  -although it is a really really good song- did not really fit into the rest of the set, since it consisted of their faster, more rockabilly-sounding songs.
I was surprised to hear quite a few songs of “Modern Artillery”, which is probably my favorite TLE record. Again, they played songs that they have not played at the last two shows (“Hold Up” and “End of the World”), which made this concert so amazing to me!
I had such a great time and I don’t think I’ve ever smiled that much at a concert ever. Everything that happened on stage just made me extremely happy. (Also I was surrounded by a bunch of really nice people that made dancing and singing along to the songs even more fun!)
Chris, Scott and Andy seemed to be in a really really good mood too. They made their little jokes on stage and just played perfectly together as always. I fell in love with them even more, when someone in the crowd handed them a piece of paper, a pen and an old concert ticket from 1999 and they stopped the set, so they could all sign the ticket and give it back to that lucky motherfucker.
:)
Over all it was definitely my favorite The Living End show that I have been to so far and one of the best concerts I have ever seen!  <3

I recorded two videos at the show: http://www.youtube.com/user/HaveYouMetMelz23/videos

WEEKLEY FAVORITE #2
Anti-Flag  Broken Bones

Although I have almost only listened to Seeed and Peter Fox this week (because I am still on cloud nine from their concert), this particular song happened to entertain me and my boyfriend on Thursday night because we just were not able to remember the words of the chorus..
Broken Bones and broken…hearts? heads? glass?
Also, Anti-Flag have been one of my favorite bands for years and are an amazing live band!
Enjoy, turn it up and dance like nobody’s watching !

WEEKLY FAVORITE #1
Peter Fox   Lok auf zwei Beinen

So, this is the first of my Weekly Favorite posts and I decided to go with Peter Fox.
(If you’re from Germany I don’t think I even have to explain to you who this man is…)
Peter Fox is one the singers of the Berlin-based Reggae/Dancehall band Seeed, who is considered one of the best German live bands ever. They’ve been around since 1998 and just this week they played four sold out shows in a row in Berlin (in a venue that fits about 17 000 people - just to give you an idea. Also I was at the first show on Thursday and it was -hands down- one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to)
In 2008 Peter Fox released his first and only solo album called “Stadtaffe”, which is was super successful and “Lok auf zwei Beinen" is definitely one of my favorite songs of that album.
Enjoy, turn it up and dance like nobody’s watching!

Hi,

welcome to my new blog entirely dedicated to artists, bands and songs that I love. Although lacking of musical talent, I am a music enthusiast - not a day goes by without listening (occasionally singing and dancing along) to my favorite songs and concert are my happy place.
I will post reviews and pictures of shows I went to, discuss new songs/music videos I like and share my “favorite song of the week” every sunday for your listening pleasure.
As for the music genre - I am a punk rocker at heart but you will find all kinds of songs on my playlist: from pop to ska, from hardcore to house music, from reggae to country to rap to classical music (such as movie soundtracks).
Hope you enjoy it and feel free to follow me on here or on Twitter @haveyoumetmelz
