Music Monday

Music Monday: The Middle by All Good Things

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

Last week I was listening to one of the lists on Spotify, maybe Rock This. Anyway, The Middle got my attention and I can’t get it out of my head ever since. I could swear I’ve heard this song somewhere but I can’t put it anywhere. As it turns out, it’s the cover of Zedd, Grey feat. Maren Morris‘ song. Which doesn’t help me as I don’t think I ever heard that version. I mean, I don’t listen to the radio and after listening to the original I can say it’s not really my kind of music.

Okay, let’s get back to the version at hand. I have no idea who these guys are, but goddamn, the lead singer of All Good Things has a fucking awesome voice. I’ll make sure to get their music on my playing list in the future. If I had The Middle back in January, I probably would have listened to it on repeat. This is exactly how I felt back then. Not understanding how did you end up in a situation and wishing things could be mended only if the other pary found you important enough to try and meet you in the middle.

Lyrics

Take a seat
Right over there, sat on the stairs
Stay or leave
The cabinets are bare, I’m unaware
Of just how we got into this mess
Got so aggressive
I know we meant all good intentions

So pull me closer
Why don’t you pull me close
Why don’t you come on over
I can’t just let you go

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
I’m losing my mind just a little
Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
In the middle

Take a step
Back for a minute, into the kitchen
Floors are wet
Taps are still running, dishes are broken
How did we get into this mess
Got so aggressive
I know we meant all good intentions

So pull me closer
Why don’t you pull me close
Why don’t you come on over
I can’t just let you go

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
I’m losing my mind just a little
Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
In the middle yeah

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
I’m losing my mind just a little
Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
In the middle

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
I’m losing my mind just a little
Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
In the middle yeah

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
I’m losing my mind just a little
Why don’t you just meet me in the middle
The middle

      I don’t listen to radio, like ever, so thankfully I never hear the ‘popular’ songs. I came across this version by accident, but holy shit, this guy really does have a freaking awesome voice.

          Yeah, apparently they started off by selling their music to be used in Video Games and in TV. That’s pretty cool. One of my favorite bands, Poets of the Fall got recognised first when they had their song, Late Goodnight featured in a Max Payne game.
