Today's Wednesday Pick Me Up is brought to you by Rise Against. Karl and I were discussing what song I should post today and he mentioned "Swing Life Away." I love that song. I have loved that song since it was way overplayed on the radio a few years ago. So if you're feeling nostalgic, this one's for you.
Now, "Swing Life Away" is wonderful, but sometimes you need a little more angst in your Wednesday Pick Me Up. That's why I now bring you "Prayer of the Refugee." This is why I love Rise Against. They hit pretty much every range of emotion all the while still maintaining their unique sound. A day where Rise Against is listened to is a good day. You're welcome, world.
What do you think? Which one do yo like better? I have a hard time deciding, so I'm just going to say I love them both equally. Rise Against is very close to our hearts here in the Bringhurst household..
