I have loved Something Corporate since as long as I can remember. They are my most favorite band, the one to which I have countless memories, thoughts, & emotions forever ingrained in my mind, heart, and soul.
I remember falling asleep to Cavanaugh Park on repeat my freshman year of college and I remember blasting Fall in a friend’s car at the Home Depot parking lot in State College, PA my junior year. I still remember the Something Corporate concert where I was such a tough girl and put gum in someone’s hair (I know…lame & awful). I remember driving home for Christmas breaks, with Forget December blasting and I still get goosebumps every time I hear Hurricane. I remember exactly where I was when I heard that Something Corporate broke up and I will NEVER FORGET the amazing reunion show at the 930 Club this past year, where I have never been as sweaty or happy in my life.
I have seen Something Corporate more than any other band I have ever followed. Their music and lyrics will forever be major part of my adolescence and so it was only natural that we used one of their songs during our wedding ceremony.
In April of 2010, SoCo released, “Played in Space” a compilation of their greatest hits and some re-recordings. Wait, an amazing song off one of their very first albums, got the re-release treatment.
Though I’m weak inside
I’m thriving just the same
Still calling out your name
I will never be able to listen to this song the same way anymore without thinking of the exact moment in my ceremony where I hugged every single one of my immediate family, best friends, and wedding party members. One of the most emotional & elated feelings in my life.
I apologize for the rather personal reflection on today’s Wedding Music That Doesn’t Suck suggestion, I just could not resist from sharing this song with everyone else.
