    Bright Eyes Saved My Life... Over and Over Again

    My ex boyfriend introduced me to Bright Eyes's music almost two years ago. I'll thank him for the rest of my life. There were so many times that I would get so upset and feeling unworthy of life, all I could do was lay in bed and stare at the ceiling. I'd become anti-social, and...

    Since Freshman Year

    Bright Eyes is my all-time favorite band. I especially love the lyrics and the obvious musical progression of Conor Oberst. Not to mention they put on a killer show.    You see, I've got connections-- my history teacher's son is the manager, so thanks to the man with...

    No Lies, Just Love

    I feel like this song could have been written by me.  Also, Haligh, Haligh, a lie, Haligh reminds me of my experiences junior year of college.  It's like he's in my brain.

    These Lyrics...

    I sometimes wonder whether he has the same mental illness as me ... cause I don't think he could describe me that well if he hadn't. I usually sit next to the cd-player when I hear a new CD the first time and start to cry at any point cause he descibes my feelings so well.

    Wathership Down

    Anyone remember the song 'Bright Eyes" by Art Garfunkel? It was about a rabbit who got killed. It made me cry, so I don't now if I like it so much. But it was/is a beautiful song. I THINK it was Art Garfunkel.??

    I Got Lucky, Thanks to History Class!

    Conor Oberst is a creative genius. I feel like every song he writes comes straight from his soul - he's so un-manufactured. I'm not sure if that's a word, but you know. Right now in particular I'm listening to "Tourist Trap" a lot, because I just moved back to my...

    I met Conor in the alley behind the Ryman Auditorium in nashville, just before the show this summer. It was a pretty basic encounter, I just said that I liked his music, and he signed my ticket stub. One of his lines has always had me curious, (if you say that theres no truth and...
