Oh, the good old emo days. Don’t deny you haven’t been through this phase in your life! You’d bring your Mp3s wherever you go, put on your headphones and sing to these songs. It doesn’t matter if the download of the songs will take hours, and my goodness those days downloads really did take hours. Music lovers are willing to sacrifice a few minutes for a song. And no, it’s not a phase, mom!
1. Kiss Me Thru The Phone – Soulja Boy
Sing along: Kiss me thru the phone, I’ll see you later on.. Kiss me thru the phone (kiss me thru the phone) See you when I get home
The definition of cool was memorizing this song and playing it every chance you got. If you give it a listen right now you’ll be flooded with memories of playing it on speaker phone, trying to burn it to CDs, or asking your classmates to Bluetooth it to your phone.
2. Beautiful Girls – Sean Kingston
Sing along: You’re way too beautiful girl that’s why it’ll never work you’ll have me suicidal, suicidal when you say it’s over
Aside from the fact that this song was on the radio most of the time (yeah we had radios back then), we just had to download it anytime the need to listen kicks in. Not to mention the major LSS it came with.
3. Crank That – Soulja Boy
Unleash your inner self from the hood! These days if artists release this type of songs, they might be pegged as “breezy” or “jeje” but Soulja Boy was one of the greatest when we still had our Mp3s. That was before we thought to search for the lyrics (that’s why it isn’t good to sing along to).
4. Here Without You – 3 Doors Down
Sing along: I’m here without you, baby, but you’re still on my lonely mind. I think about you, baby and I dream about you all the time
The greatest of the rock band era has passed us by and we are truly sad for the future generations to come. They will never hear classic songs with clean and great lyrics like Here Without You. It’s best to listen to this song while sitting by the window watching the rain on the street. Although it makes us feel more emo, who cares?
