Year 8, the year of the MMM... Cookies CD was probably one of my favourites. Listening to the silly side of the band really made me feel like there was more to them. You can be a huge fan of a band but not really know that much about them as people, that public side is the one you're gonna see 99.9% of the time.
You know that they're normal people, just like you, but that doesn't hit home so much until you hear something like Bubbles and realise that serious face is covering something completely different! Haha, sorry Chester, but that is my fav song... Sorry, cookie. :P
Even a song like No Laundry... I cracked up the first time I heard it. And the last line, I always wonder if anyone got into trouble for that. It's all just so carefree and I love that, I love knowing that the people I listen to and look up to aren't just stuck into a role or a persona as part of the band.
The best bit for me is that because of how much I've played the CD in the car with my mom, she too likes some of the songs! In case you're wondering, 26 Lettaz In Da Alphabet. Yep, we both have a little giggle over that one. :P
No one should be stuck into how they think they should be, or how other people think they should be. Knowing that, and hearing that CD, always helps me to feel better about the kind of person I am. I will never be anything but what I want to be.
Thank you. :)
