Gingers pick of the week......Dashboard Confessional

When I do my weekly picks there is one of two factors at play. Either I have found a song that I have really connected with because of things going on in my own life or I am just really impressed by the artist and have decided to play them to DEATH and drive everyone else in the house insane. Today, it's both of those things.

I have always been a Dashboard Confessional fan. I think Chris Carrabba is not only HOT, but an amazing singer and songwriter. He has a very unique, distinctive voice that sets him apart from a lot of the other male artists today. I love the passion that comes from him through his lyrics as well. And that passion is reflected in his voice. Very raw, untrained , powerful....I love it. Here are a few of my favorite songs from them. Most of them come from the Dusk and Summer album, which is my favorite. But my suggestion, get the entire discography. It's fantastic.


The Secrets in the Telling....



Stolen....



Screaming Infidelities (Live) ....You can find this on the MTV Unplugged album...or the original version on The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most.



And the most popular song by them..Vindicated...on the Spiderman 2 soundtrack



Hope you enjoy the crooning of Chris as much as I do. :-)

Lemme tell ya why I like this guy. Or more correctly, lemme tell ya where I like them. When I'm hangin out around the house I pull up my Feist/MGMT pandora station and thats what I listen to like 80% of the time. But when I'm cruising by myself on a clear night I LOVE to bust out Dashboard Confessional. They just really seem to lend themselves to being sung too loudly by people that cant sing. And thats a compliment.
