For this week, I’m bringing back a post from early 2017…

Mad Season

As a teen of the 90’s, grunge music became an escape. Some of my favorites included: Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, Screaming Trees, and Mad Season.

Mad Season formed in Seattle, Washington in 1994 by members of Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Screaming Trees. They released only one album titled Above which became one of my favorite grunge albums of all time. Things started falling apart not long after due to Layne Staley’s problems with substance abuse.

This week’s song pick is:

Alice In Chains

“Nutshell”

I’ve had a rough week with a few unexpected events that I’m struggling to get past and just about the only thing I feel like I can do to help myself is listen to music. I know I’ve mentioned this song on previous posts before, but Alice In Chains is a fave and this is just one of my go-to songs. I chose this song because it’s been a favorite since the moment I heard it for the first time, it’s written by Layne Staley, whom I miss dearly, and it helps me release my emotions. It’s one of my best loved songs of all time.

 

Lyrics:

We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I can’t be my own
I’d feel better dead

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
