Let’s Talk: Camp Rock (12 Year Anniversary)

Now I don’t know if most of you will remember this movie, but this was literally my childhood days and it’s kinda crazy to think that this movie came out 12 years ago, not 12 years today exactly, it’s 12 year anniversary was actually this past Saturday, I was planning to talk about this the day of, but never got around to it, but it’s been 3 days, so it’s not that bad!!

Reason i’m talking about it today, is because I just finished watching the movie, now if i’m being honest, I don’t actually watch movies or tv for that matter very often and if I do it’s for a very short while, however movies are the things that I watch the least, but I figured that it’s been a while since I watched the movie, I can’t actually tell you how long it’s been…..

Let’s just say it’s been a long time…….and i’ll tell you rewatching this movie, it still felt the same, but it also felt different at the same time, some scenes still hold up and some……could’ve been better, but at the time, it was okay for what it was I guess……the music however…….well it hasn’t changed that much, but there are some that I have re listened to, that i’ve gained opinions on, some are the same and some well……how I felt about it then, I still feel about it now only there’s some things mixed in……..it’ll make sense when I recored on it to explain don’t worry, this post is about the movie though

There’s a lot to it that, I don’t quite get now with certain scenes within the movie……also I didn’t realize how much it actually got to me, re watching it I felt quite annoyed at some parts, mainly with Tess and different things that happened in the movie, but than you have some good classic scenes i’m sure some of you might know the ones, that said, this movie started giving me a headache because I was like “are you serious” some moments just really bothered me, but nonetheless, it’s still a good movie!!

Yeah it’s pretty cheesy most of the time, but it’s an early 2000s movie so what do you expect right!? On a good note, we got a miniature Demi Lovato here and the Jo Bros (Jonas Brothers for those that don’t know) a.k.a. Connect 3…..don’t know why that was their name now that i’m thinking about it, guess they were inspired by connect 4 the game or something!?

Yes I know it was because there were 3 of them, but they could’ve thought of a different name i’m sure…..connect 3 it was though, not that it was bad, just really!?…..alright then…..you know what I mean!? I gotta say though, my favorite performance in this movie has to be Here I Am, that song always got to me when watched it as a young one…….I don’t even have to watch the movie though for it to deeply feel it, it’s just an overall great song,

I’ll talk more on that later though, I do have some other favorite performances in the movie like This Is Me…..of course, Play My Music……others I can’t quite think of right now, but still there’s some good ones there, but I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since this movie premiered like it doesn’t seem that long ago, but it definitely is which is the mad part!!

Like I remember when it first came out, well when I first watched it on tv anyway…..which was the premiere, but you get what I mean……I could probably go on about this topic, but i’ll keep it short and sweet for now and save some other thoughts on it later, that is if I have anymore thoughts on it, i’m sure I do….but I won’t make it long, I just wanted to briefly talk on it, and share a few thoughts about it……even though there’s some parts in this movie I laugh at now with how cringe it can get and so on,

I still have soft spot for it and enjoy it vey much so, it was my childhood so obviously nostalgia for it is going to be there, plus it’s got some of my favorite songs in it along with Demi and the Jonas Brothers….did I mention that already!? I probably did haha…..

Have you ever watched Camp Rock, if so what are some of your favorite songs from the movie!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

Now Playing: Happiness Begins By The Jonas Brothers (Album Review) Part 2

Alright it’s now 5:50pm as i’m writing this close to 6pm, by the time I finish this post it might just be past both those times depends how long this post will both take me and be. I’m going to try and keep my thoughts for each song brief so this doesn’t take so long, so with that note let’s get straight into this album review shall we!?

As promised well more like stated in my last post, i’ve just finished listening to the Jonas Brothers latest album for a second time and well let’s just say my thoughts about it have both changed in a way, while also not changing at all, so I still feel the same about this album to when I first heard, but i’ve added a few more thoughts to the songs so let’s talk about it!!

Starting with Track 1: Sucker……

Alright so just like the first listen of this song and I mean first REAL listen of it (I did hear this around, but it wasn’t until I finally listened to the album to where I really sat and heard the whole song) non of my thoughts to this song have changed much, I still think it’s pretty catchy and I find it to be a pretty groovy song, the only thing i’d say that has changed with it is that when I first listened to it I wasn’t quite sure whether to add it as an automatic favorite of mine, but listening to it a second time……it might just be up there, I think I need a few more listens to have be decided officially though,

but yeah, it’s a pretty good song and I think it’s one you can’t really go wrong with, with it, you’re just having a good time, who doesn’t love that!?

Now moving on to Track 2: Coooool!! (I just wanted to add the extra O’s)

This song is exactly what the title of it says, Cool!! I love the chillness that it brings from start to finish, I thought the vocal’s in this one was really great and it’s just a really nice song to kick back to i’d say, also we should really inspire to be like ourselves when we grow up (just taking notes from Nick who suggested it in the song towards the end)

Now on to Track 3: Only Human (the one I always forget to mention the title of for some weird odd reason )

Don’t worry I remembered it this time, I don’t know why I always forget to say the name of the title, I always just jump right in and start talking about it, this time however I was aware!! Now let’s talk about this song a little…..this is my favorite track of this album at least one of my favorites anyway (first favorite) I wish I can explain this, but I just can’t, all I can say is that it’s just soooo good, like seriously just the best (to me anyway)

The second verse to this song is by far one of my favorites, just because of the way it’s brought to us, i’d quote it, but I think you should just listen to it, just so you can get a good taste of it for yourself, but I mean the whole song is great though, I just really love it, there’s just something about it, I can’t really explain so first recommended song to listen to is this one!!

Track 4: I Believe….

Now if there’s one thing to tell you about this song is……I believe, that it’s a very great track….yes I used the title to describe the song….you should’ve saw it coming and if you did, then i’m just really predicable aren’t I!?

Either way, this song is just beautiful, it’s just really good, it’s also another favorite of mine, so check it out, you might just like it as well!!

Track 5: Used To Be….

Okay we’ve come to this track, now when I first heard this song, I thought it to be good, still think it’s good, but after the second listen…..i’ve come to say that I feel this might be my least favorite on the album…..not because it’s a bad track, I just feel it’s the track i’m not going to listen to a lot, like i’m not gonna go out of my way to listen to it…..that was my first initial thought hearing it a second time, however another thought came in and i’m going to dub this song a mixed feeling type of song for me, it’s like I like it……

but I know it’s going to be the track that I skip a few times and then listen to out of the blue if that makes sense!? I might have to let it grow on me a bit, but besides everything I said, I still think it’s a great song overall, it’s deep, the lyrics to it are really great and I did get a few chills listening to it, but for now it’s my least favorite, however I still also like it as well (mixed feelings)

Track 6: Every Single Time….

I was gonna use the title of the song again to start off my thoughts, but I thought let’s not……this song it’s just has it’s own vibe to it, I can’t really explain it, but you feel it, you can’t put your finger on it, but you know it’s good, this is another groovy track also you really can appreciate Nick Jonas’s vocal’s in this song, it’s very interesting in the best kind of way!!

Track 7: Don’t Throw It Away….

I know this reads Track 7, but what it really should read is track seveeeen, that’s how I said it with my first listen of the song when sharing my thoughts, there might’ve been more E’s though……. XD but what can we say about this song though!? I don’t have a lot of words for it except for it’s soooo good, I love it and that it’s a favorite of mine…..that is all really!!

Apr 11, 2020 (Continuation of this album review)

Alright so we stoped at Track 7 yesterday and we’ve got 7 more songs to talk about, I could’ve finished it yesterday, but I kinda just chilled out the rest of the night!! In a way though we’ve evened the songs out, anyway let’s continue on with this post, so far i’d say we’ve done a good job keeping it short and sweet so let’s see if we can keep it going for the next 7 songs!!

First song on the next day list, Track 8: Love Her…..

Well I LOVE this song i’ll tell you that for starters, my original thoughts with it haven’t really changed, it’s still a very sweet track and whenever I hear it, it gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME!! It’s just so great and it knows how to pull on your heartstrings seriously, I cry all the time, okay maybe not cry CRY,

but the waterworks do start forming when I hear it and I haven’t been hearing it a lot to be honest so I don’t know how it always gets me, I love it though and it’s still one of favorites off this album!!

On to Track 9: Happy When I’m Sad

I just sang this song to myself and i’m realizing just how catchy this one is…..here’s to hoping it doesn’t get stuck in my head the rest of the day, I already woke up singing one of their other songs…..luckily it was a favorite!!

Anyway….let’s talk track number 9, my original thoughts on this one haven’t changed really, still think it’s pretty great, when I first heard it, I actually thought I wasn’t going to like this one along with another song of theirs (not the one I said was my least favorite, but a different song that turned out to be my favorite)

The more I listened to it though, the more I actually thought it was a good song!! Now what you won’t know about this song is that, theres a bit of a hidden meaning with it, even though the track is disguised well with it’s poppy upbeat tone and is pretty danceable, it can be easy to overlook the lyrics of it even though the title is pretty much a dead giveaway…..that being said, this track does give you the best of both in terms of deep meaning and just having a song that you can enjoy and groove to from time to time!!

Track 10: Trust

I’m trying to think of words for this song…..I have it as a favorite, but every time I come up to it, I can never find words for it I think i’m going to re listen so I can try and put it to words properly……just a quick moment…..

Told you that was quick!! I remember it now (10:44am just finished) Even after hearing it, I still can’t really properly describe the song to you…..what I will say is that, it’s got some coolness to it, I guess if I had to give it a backstory, it’s a song that you’d probably add to your guilty pleasure playlist because when you hear the lyrics it’s pretty much like that anyway,

It gives off the feeling of knowing you shouldn’t like something, but you just can’t help yourself to like it at the same time……..so i’d say with this song, you’d need to check it out for yourself to understand it, but everything about this song is just amazing, I love it and it’s one of my favorites!!

Alright now that that’s done…..we will now make our way to Track 11: Strangers

Which is another song I don’t have much to say about, I didn’t have much to say when I first heard it and I still don’t have much to say on it now even after the second listen of it, all I can tell you is that I like it and that it’s a good song……that’s pretty much it……alright well moving on!!

We’ve got 3 more songs ahead, but I promise we’re flying through this review!! Number 12 on the track list is a song called……Hesitate:

Okay before we move ahead there’s 3 songs on this album that gave me different artist vibes, the first song was I Believe, which gave me Zayn Malik vibes, only because it reminded me of his song Let Me (at first I thought Borderz, but the song Let Me later came into my mind and I thought yeah that’s the song) This one gave me a more Harry Styles kind of vibe…..

Let me explain okay, i’m not just purposely adding One Direction members here alright!! It’s the writing style of it that reminds me of Harry, if any of you have ever listened to a Harry Styles record then you’ll see what I mean, but when I first heard this song, it was the first thing that came to mind for some reason, not saying the Jonas Brothers can’t write deep songs, they can,

but I heard it the first time and thought Harry Styles and when I heard it again I still thought Harry Styles writing, but One Direction members aside, I love this song, Nick, Kevin and Joe did a very great job on it, maybe it’s just similar writing styles to where I put the comparison on it, either way it’s a beautiful song, there’s a nice soft bridge in here and when I went to hear it the second time, I may have replayed it only to hear the bridge part,

I could’ve just heard the bridge part, but I ended up listening to the whole song again, but that shows you just how good the song is if you’re going back for a replay of it!! Also another song came to mind when I was re listening to it (no it has nothing to do with One Direction this time) what it does have to do with is the Jonas Brothers themselves and a song they sang

Back when they were playing themselves in a show called Jonas L.A. that song being Invisible, now it was only a small pick up I got, but I wanted to add that…..but yes, love the song, it’s a favorite!!

2 more to go….next up track 13……Rollercoaster

Alright so what can I say with this song……I had a lot of different thoughts about what this song is about, at first I thought “wait is this about their journey as a band” and then another thought came through where I thought ” wait is this a story about Kevin Jonas meeting his wife” i’m still figuring this one out as you can see, there’s just sooo many different things that this song can be about, but I don’t know, I also thought it might be a mixture of everything in one so maybe it’s that, I have a clue, but it’s good

Also this is the third song where I was picking up different artist vibes, but don’t worry it’s not all 1D related, this one I picked up on some Avicii vibes (R.I.P Avicii) as well as Selena Gomez when she did that song with Marshmallow called Wolves, but the more I listened to it the more I felt it to be more on the Avicii side of town in terms of how it sounds, it reminded me of the song Wake Me Up feat Aloe Blacc, I don’t know why, but it did…..

I’m thinking it might’ve just been the way the song was, when you hear it, it might make more sense, but other than that, the song is really good, really pretty and just full of feelings, like Nostalgia type feelings if you will, it’s a nice song though!!

Okay everyone we have now reached the end of this album review as well as the last track on the album, Track 14……Comeback

This track might leave you wondering at first to what it’s going to sound like, you might look at the title and think “oh this ones going to be pretty hard hitting isn’t it!?” but once you step into it and hit play……you’ll be surprised to know that it’s…..not far from it, but more not what you expected, when I first heard this song, I wasn’t sure what to expect with it,

I had something in mind to what I thought it’d sound like, but it turned out not sounding at all to what I was expecting it to, to be honest i’m not really quite sure what I was expecting from it now that i’m thinking about it really, however I didn’t think it’d deliver so calmly either when I listened to it for the first time soooo yeah…..I don’t know, but hearing it, I wanted to get emotional, but I didn’t at the same time if that makes sense!? It’s a really beautiful song, it’s another one that pulls at the heartstrings and it’s just an overall sweet and lovely song and I would recommend checking it out!!

We’ve done it, we’ve finally reached the end of this album and I gotta say I might just like this one better than my first thought review, because I got to really sit and think about it a bit more, but the first version wasn’t bad, that was just an after reaction trying my best to soak it all in, but this one is more analytical and broken down better, I like them both!!

Final Thoughts!?

I love this album, I love that my favorite band is back together again, i’m just overall Happy and over the moon about it!! I could say more, but I think my best reaction and final thoughts to it, is all within my first review on it, I say all that I think about it there so i’ll keep this final thought short and sweet, but not before saying one last thing……WELCOME BACK JONAS BROTHERS (A.K.A. THE ORIGINAL JB……YES I NEEDED TO SAY THAT)

no but, seriously, i’ve missed you guys and I can’t wait to see what else you guys got coming……alright that is all the review i’ve got, thank you so much for reading this post and just being here all together it truly means a lot!!

Signing out now……hope you all are having a good weekend and are keeping safe and well and I hope you’ve enjoyed this are doing okay!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Now Playing: Happiness Begins By Jonas Brothers (Part 1) Intro To Post…..

Afternoon everyone, hope everyone’s having a GOOD Friday, I say that because it’s good Friday and also because I generally do hope you’re having a good day in general!! Let me know if that was cheesy……actually you don’t have to I already know it was. Okay so today we’re going to talk music and albums, now I wrote a post sometime last week saying that this one was up for writing, but that I wanted to do it a certain way before actually writing about it as well, to get to the point I recorded a video expressing my thoughts on one of my favorite bands The Jonas Brothers and their latest album Happiness Begins just to let you know that video is now up already.

It took me a few days though to upload it due to me having to edit it down a whole lot……it was almost 2 hours recording, an hour forty five plus to be exact……don’t worry though the hour part is no more and instead it’s now 45 mins and 43 secs, which is a HUGE difference compared to the original time……I had to pause and transfer a lot to make room on my camera which is why it was so long, also it was pretty early in the morning and so it took me a while to get through it, but that’s because I was still waking up!!!

Moving on however, I have decided that what i’m going to do for this post is have it be a little different to the video I did, expressing my thoughts on the album, the video review about it, is a bit more detailed in terms of depth explaining if that makes sense!?

So everything that’s in that video has more to it expression wise compared to the review of the album i’ll be writing about shortly!! Now what i’m going to do is, i’m going to re listen to Happiness Begins by the Jonas Brothers and see what other thoughts I have with it, i’m curious to see if any of my original thoughts I had change from what I already talked about in my video version review of it, i’m not sure if it will……

but who knows, some might change and some might actually stay the same but i’m going to try and differentiate this review post to my video review and just see if anything switches around, i’m also going to do my best to keep my thoughts short and sweet for each song I talk about so it’s not a long post and from there i’ll write some final thoughts and tell you what I thought about the album after listening to it a second time,

In the meantime while i’m re listening to the album, if you guys would like to check out my original thoughts on the album from the first listen, you can check it out here: Now Playing…..Happiness Begins by The Jonas Brothers it might take a bit to get through, I recorded it early in the morning and so I was still in the mist of waking up, but it does pick up after a while so if you do end up checking it out, just bare with me as I go through all the songs, speaking of songs, there’s 14 songs on this album and so that’s also why it takes a bit of time, but we manage to get through it!!

Alright so i’m off to re listen to my favorite band and their latest album Happiness Begins again, i’ll write my thoughts to it on a second post making this one…..part 1 so i’ll uhhh…..see you when i’ve re heard all the songs!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Up Next On The Now Playing List: Jonas Brothers (Happiness Begins Album)

I was going to wait for Wednesday to start writing this post, but I thought i’d start a little early…..although i’ve just realized that I would’ve only had to wait a day to write this post seeing as Wednesday’s tomorrow, almost forgot it was Tuesday……anyway, even though i’m writing this post now, you’re probably not going to see this until a little later, i’m thinking sometime Thursday or Friday, reason being is that, i’ve got something that I want to try and i’m sure by the title you’ll know what i’m talking about!!

If not well, i’m going to be listening to one of my all time favorite bands, The Jonas Brothers as the title displays and their latest album Happiness Begins, as i’m listening to it, i’ll be writing down my thoughts to each song on the album so I guess reviewing it in my own way, but it’s going to be different, i’m just going to let things flow and see what comes out of it, pretty excited!!

Now this album came out last year during the summer of June, however the Jonas Brothers made a comeback as a reunited band back early this month of last year, originally I was going to write about their return and I ended up not writing about it……I don’t know why I didn’t, seeing as they were and still are one of my favorite bands you’d think i’d be over the moon about it!?

I was by the way, made sure to mention it any chance I got, but I should’ve shared my excitement on here that day, however that is where this post comes in even though everyone knows the Jonas Brothers are back and making music together again, I feel it’s time to give them a proper welcome even if it’s a year late you know!? Better late then never right!? You get it!!

Now I haven’t quite heard their stuff properly yet…..well unless you count the times where their song Sucker (their comeback single) played everywhere I went naturally, I did my very best to avoid it, but I felt like it just kept following me so i’ve heard that song, however I haven’t actually sat and listened to the song properly so even though it’s going to feel familiar…..

There’s still stuff within the song slightly new to where it’ll feel like i’m just listening to it for the first time, if that makes sense!? Overall though i’m pretty excited to finally sit and listen to these songs and album and really truly embrace the return of the Jonas Brothers, because i’ve missed them and i’m really happy to know that their back and are brothers again, not that they weren’t ever brothers to begin with, but…..you know what I mean.

Stay tune for my thoughts on their album Happiness Begins as well as more thoughts about their return and anything else that comes with it!!

P.S. I had an idea, instead of waiting for Thursday or Friday to see this post, i’ll be sharing it once i’ve finished writing it, reason!? Just thought of a new category for these type of post and i’m excited, even though, i’m literally just adding another category to my blog…..but still, excited!! Did I already mention that!? ahhh one more doesn’t hurt, i’m really looking forward to this!!

also last thing, apparently for a moment, I had forgotten I wrote a post on the Jonas Brothers and their 10 year anniversary of their album Lines, Vines and Trying Times so if you want to know how big of a fan I am of them you can read it here: Let’s Talk Music: Jonas Brothers, plus Lines, Vines And Trying Times (10 Year Anniversary album release)

I went ahead and read it, due to curiosity…..Disclaimer: brace yourself, i’ve just discovered how weird I am at times and yeah….I don’t know, if it’s too much I get it, no hard feelings, I question my weirdness all the time, even while in the mist of being weird, it’s just the thing, i’ve learned to embrace!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Don’t Forget To Take A Breath (June 19, 2019)

It’s been a while since i’ve written down my thoughts…..kinda, not my actual thoughts just a simple write down, i’m sure you know what I mean.

*Takes a deep breath and releases* Maaan am I mentally all over the place today, it’s so easy I tell you haha…..all you have to do is let your mind go in a million one places and there you have it, scattered thoughts everywhere!! That’s how you do it, in case you’re wondering how to easily stress yourself out……it’s always like that ain’t it!? So easy to drive yourself mad, yet so difficult to keep yourself sane and calm…….

I made this here creation as I like to call them, a long while ago…….I was meant to use it after I made it, never really quite did though, I guess I felt it wasn’t the right moment or something I don’t know…..funny, I think my reasoning for making this was because I was having a day like today.

As you can probably see in the picture, there’s some words in a spiral, but they aren’t just any words, they’re lyrics to one of my favorite songs by one of my all time favorite bands who I actually wrote a post about the other day. The name of the song is called Take A Breath and it’s by of course…..One Direction…….I mean the Jonas Brothers *nervous laughs*

One Direction had 3 more years left before they went on the X factor, auditioned and would then later be formed into a band…..there goes my brain huh!?

Also you guys probably think I planned that, but trust me, I did not….. I went to say the Jonas Brothers and ended up saying One Direction instead, to myself, out loud, as I was writing it…..not kidding……and if you think it’s a one time thing, no that’s how my brain actually is at times, can’t help it.

Back to what I was talking about though…..this song is off their 2007 self titled album, but on the deluxe version of the album, it’s a really good song, it’s an early 2000’s kind of song of course, a little upbeat, but not too pop sound-ish, it has some edge to it, at least I think it does anyway…..if you’re a Jonas Brothers fan you’ll know what i’m talking about.

It’s one of those tunes that you listen to not only for that nostalgia feeling, but also when you need that reminder to breathe and relax a bit you know!? Try not to worry as much, it helps for a moment, but with the way our brains like to be, it can take a lot of reminding……

For me singing the lines, “Don’t forget to take a breath” plus the rest of the chorus, as well as the whole song……it works for the moment, plus it’s good to sing, I mean we all know there’s nothing like singing our favorite songs to help boost our moods a bit and make us feel a little better.

Here’s the song if you want to give it a listen: Take A Breath remember it’s by the Jonas Brothers NOT One Direction (this is a reminder to myself by the way……I honestly don’t know how I messed that one up, they’re my favorite band…..so is One Direction, but the Jonas Brothers are always first)

P.S. I feel like I might’ve shared this song with you guys before, but I also feel like I didn’t, if I did sorry, hope you don’t mind be sharing it again…..but if I haven’t, I hope you enjoy it or at least find it interesting if you do give it a listen!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk Music: The Jonas Brothers Plus Lines, Vines And Trying Times Album 10 Year Anniversary (June 16, 2019)

So today (yesterday now) I learned that it’s been 10 years since one of my favorite bands (The Jonas Brothers) released their 3rd……sorry 4TH (had to look into it to be sure) studio album………10 YEARS!? wow, that’s insane!! You know when an album (movie, show, ect) comes out and you remember the day it came out like exactly and how you felt that day!?

Yeah…..I can’t say I remember when this album came out or how I felt when it did, I knew some of the songs from the album and I remember watching the music videos for Fly With Me and Paranoid all the time on Disney Channel, those were the days……..

The first time really listening to Lines, Vines and Trying Times was when I got the album when attending their 2009 world tour (my first ever live concert btw) it’s a real good album, might be one of my favorites, apart from A Little Bit Longer, that’s gotta be one of my all time favorite albums from them.

If I had to put their albums together in a row and tell you which ones were my favorite in order (based off the ones I have of course) it’d be in this order:

  1. A Little Bit Longer
  2. Jonas Brothers (Self Titled Album)
  3. Lines Vines & Trying Times

Now on one of my social medias (Instagram, where I saw it originally) they asked what was one of our favorite songs from that album and for me that’s a bit of a hard one, because well, I have a few……..but instead of stressing myself out with choosing just one song, i’ll add my top 5 favorite songs from the album……shouldn’t be hard!!

Top 5 Favorite Lines, Vines and Trying Times songs:

Side Note : I totally nailed it, wasn’t hard one bit!! ^_^ (pretty sure I sat looking at the track list for an 1 hour, could’ve been less for all I know, it wasn’t 5 mins though i’ll tell you that)

Okay so after some time, I think I have a good list here…..

  1. Fly With Me
  2. Poison Ivy
  3. Much Better
  4. Paranoid
  5. Don’t Speak

Maaaan that was really hard to list, *let’s out a hard breath* so much nostalgia hit me the minute I saw that track list…….I seriously didn’t think it’d be that hard deciding, out of these 5, there were only 3 songs off this album I was certain about to be on this list, I even had to go and make a top 10 list in one of my journals just to sort this out simply, not kidding…..

13 songs off that album and I struggled to write down a top 10 list!!? Top 5 that’s okay, because it’s not easy trying to crutch all your favorite songs into one small list, but a top 10 list!? You might as well call me a pathetic poor unfortunate soul with that one…..in all fairness though I did say it was a good album haha…….goodness……10 years!? I still can’t believe it’s been that long already, time sure does zoom by doesn’t it!?

You know what I realized!? Lines, Vines and Trying Times released June 16, 2009 right!? This was their last full studio album since they’re split or shall I say “hiatus” as a band, they did release a couple songs back in 2013, but it was only 2 single releases with their songs Pom Poms and First Time.

These songs I believe were supposed to be on their 5th album titled V, but never really saw the light of day due to creative differences in where they wanted their sound to go as a band and one of the reasons they’re split happened in the first place.

Fast forward 10 years later, since this album released, plus the two singles they also put out before their split……BOOM the Jonas Brothers are back, we get new music and EVERYBODY’S freaking out and you know I was one of them. Kevin, Nick and Joe without warning had the internet on a fury the day it was announced they’ve returned!!

You know how HUGE that was seeing that!!! I don’t think anyone thought they’d ever come back as a band to be honest, I always had hope they would because The Jonas Brothers are one of my all time favorite bands, they were the first band I got into and will always be my favorite no matter how old I get!!

I tell you though when they split back in 2013, it was pretty shocking, I remember hearing that and being pretty bummed out about the announcement, however, reading into it I did understand the reasoning for it……when you’re in a band or a group, things like creative differences or having different views on things will sometimes lead to some kind of friction.

Majority of the time there’s going to be a situation where someone in a group or band might want to try and branch out to work on different projects or want to see what else they can do, whether it’s with music or something completely different and not everyone apart of that group will entirely agree on it and from there it may get a bit messy.

With the Jonas Brothers……from trying to understand the reasoning behind their split and why, because they weren’t agreeing on how they wanted their sound to go with their music and of course everything else surrounding the split, you learned with that, it was slowly effecting the relationship between all of them, not just as a band, but also as real life brothers and when that starts to happen…..things start to fall apart and nothing works and i’m sure, for them, at the time, in those moment……

It was either break up as a band or break up as brothers and because they were as close as they were, they knew they couldn’t let whatever was happening between them ruin their close brotherhood and they’re whole family…….sooo, they chose to look at the bigger picture and take a break from each other for a while and you know what it worked!!

They surprised us all with their We’re back” announcement and had most of us losing our minds running through all the walls we came across!!

No but seriously, I really think them going off and doing separate things for a while helped them rebuild whatever cracks they had (if there were any) in their relationships and probably some other things, Nick with his acting and music, Joe with his (former) band DNCE and Kevin with his family and a pretty good food app apparently!!

(haven’t actually used it, but i’ve heard good things on it, helps you find places to go when hungry, mainly restaurants I think)

It’s good that they all found success doing different things though, but now that they’re back together, it’s good days, now we can sing to the moon and cheer with our pom poms in hand knowing that JB (THE ORIGINAL JB, YEAH I SAID IT!!) ARE BACK, BABYYYYYY!!! YES!!!

HAPPY 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY LINES, VINES AND TRYING TIMES AND WELCOME BACK NICK, KEVIN AND JOE!!! I know this is late now, but thank you for bringing so many memories in my younger years and for making me laugh and just for everything, you might be able to tell already, but we’ve missed you!!

Now I have to be honest, I haven’t actually heard any of their new music, so i’ve got a few to catch up on, but i’ll get there, i’ll have to brace myself though as I know I could be in for a ride with the new sound, but i’m really looking forward to hearing what they’ve come up with.

THE BOYS ARE BACK, WOOOOO!!

All The Love ❤ ❤
