Country Song – Seether (album: Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray 2011)

This song is from Seether’s latest album. I wasn’t really impressed with this song when it was first released but my Hubby liked it and I might say it grew on me. Also the video clip is hilarious. The new album “Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray” is quite different from all of their previous albums. There are a few really good songs and there are some really bad ones. Overall it sounds more like Nickelback and not at all like Seether. The song “Tonight” is the perfect example for it.  What a horrible song, such a disappointment. In some of the songs Shaun Morgan sounds exactly like Chad Kroeger which is not a bad thing at all, it’s just really confusing. Anyway, I’ve decided to support them and purchase the album and enjoy a few of the songs in it. Hopefully their future albums will sound more like the good old Seether days back in “Disclaimer” and “Karma and Effect”.
My Hubby and I have been following the Sci-Fi TV show Eureka. It is quite an interesting show about a town that is full with mad scientists that invent really advanced technologies and about a normal ordinary sheriff that has to deal with all these science experiments that had gone wrong. It’s quite entertaining. The first two seasons were great, the third season was OK and the forth went completely wrong. From some reason they got rid of too many important characters and it became more like a really bad soap opera then a Sci-Fi show. I definitely recommend watching the first three seasons. Even though I didn’t understand half of the stuff that they were saying in this show, I enjoyed the dynamic between all the characters and the chaotic situations that they are dealing with. It’s quite a fun show.  Back to the song, I hope you enjoy the best video clip I’ve seen in a long time. It’s really funny.

Lyrics: Country Song

What’s this song about?

According to frontman Shaun Morgan, the track's title "got its name from the swampy verse riff". On the band's official message board, Morgan explained the track's background, saying "in some ways I guess I was dealing with growing up and having to make better life choices. It's definitely not country, but we recorded the album in Nashville, and felt like it was a small homage to such a wonderful city."(Country Song – Wikipedia)
