Music Monday: Linkin Park's Crawling

Still remember them? I can't believe I almost forget about Linkin Park! I read about them in yesterday's newspaper! I was flipping through the paper and suddenly something very familiar caught my eye balls-the word "Park". It was a review of Linkin Park's latest album-Songs From The Underground. My...that review reminded me how long it has been since I first started to hook up with Linkin Park! These talented geezers burst into the music zone and crawled into our "skins" in 2000 with their debut Hybrid Theory. In my case, it was Crawling that made me one of LP's legions of fans!

~Songs From The Undergdround~

Ever since then, I have never missed any of their albums (I thing so). Linkin Park has continued to distinguish themselves and set the trends with Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda sharing vocal duties and really building up a unique sounds of their own. Yes! The very reason that they are immortalised is because of their irrefutable uniqueness! And I have always love their videos which are always peculiar and yet inspiring.

Sometimes I can't help but feel that they are genius! I mean their music is really out of the world. No other band can sing like they do. Meaning that once you heard their music or singing in a bus, instantaneously you know it is them. No other bands could fit in their "shoes"! If I could use a word to describe their songs, it would simply be ORGANIC! Duh! I'm starting to sound like a freak huh! Heck! Why not we watch the video and witness what I mean! Ladies and gentlemen...Crawling...


Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
This lack of self-control I fear is never ending
Controlling/I can't seem

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced
that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure


Discomfort,endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem...
