Just a Phase I love, and I used to listen to it flat out when I had an awful workmate who was making my life miserable!!
Another I love is Monuments and Melodies. Beautiful song which I love the lyrics of.
Definitely "Drive". I came to a point in my life where I knew I had to "take the wheel" of my own life and direct myself toward what I wanted to do with it.
hmmm...Drive...first song i ever heard from Incubus...beautiful lyrics and melodies...love it!
I've probably got one from almost every record.
"The Antigravity Love Song" is probably my all time favorite. It speaks to the hopeless romantic inside all of us. Its almost an eye witness account of a kid living at home sneaking out of his house to meet up with his love.
"The Warmth" is a great reminder that most of the stuff that bothers and interrupts life really doesn't matter, and that now is as good a time as any to let it go. Its also an all around bad ass song!
"Just a Phase" was a song that I used to listen to for any and all occasions. In good times, it was a reminder that those moments are special and to not take them for granted. The rough stuff would come to an end. And watch for the calm before the storm.
"Sick Sad Little World" is a favorite if for nothing else, Mike's solo. It takes me somewhere else!
The whole Light Grenades record is difficult for me. Pick any song and its musically mesmerizing and lyrically spellbinding. The lyrics seem to brood and offer that shoulder one might need to cry on. I can remember driving home in the hazy, not quite mist not quite rain, listening to LG one morning and thinking that people in general go from point A to point B with little to no purpose. And that at some point each of our souls wants to break free and become more than it has been allowed. Similar to a caged animal breaking out. Intriguing and certainly thought provoking. It makes me wonder, If Not Now, When?
"it reminded me that you're so worth the fight."
A lot of them. Actually I think every single Incubus song has some kind of meaning in my life.
Drive: First Incubus song I've ever listened. It was an acoustic version back in 2000, it was on a mix tape my crush/boy I loved let me borrow and the second I heard it I fell in love with it. And I fell in love even more of him for listening to such beautiful melodies.
Black Heart Inertia: The summer it came out, me and my current boyfriend went completely insane listening to that song every day for like a month. That one became "our song".
A Certain Shade of Green: Um, long story... it involves my boyfriend.
The Warmth: I've always said that this world is so f'cked up, that people here suck and will always screw you over, no matter how much you love them or how much they love you, everybody always disappoints you. But whenever I hear the line "not everyone here is that fucked up and cold, remember why you came and while you're alive experience the warmth before you grow old" gives me hope for the future, and I think that I shouldn't be so negative about it.
And there are so many others, but those are the ones I'll talk about.
