I Love Bright Eyes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 574 People

    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...

    I Love When Someone Smiles And...

    I love when someone smiles and you can see the smile in their eyes. You can tell a persons mood by how bright their eyes are. I like when my husbands eyes are bright, it usually means a lot of amusing torture is on the way (and I don't just mean sexually.) I also like to brighten...

    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...

    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.

    I'm actually weirdly obsessed with eye color.

    Eyes are so unique. Each person has a different eye color and they are so beautiful. I just love eye color

    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.??

    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.

    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...
