I Am Understood? {Music Monday 5}

Relient K has consistently been one of my favorite bands since I was about 12 or 13. I bought their CD "Two Lefts Don't Make a Right...But Three Do" about that time. I remember sitting in the backyard listening to it on my portable CD player while trying to get a bit of sun because I was going to be the guestbook attendant in my cousin's wedding and didn't want to blind everyone with my paleness. :)

I decided the song this week had to be Relient K because apparently they recently released a new CD and I had no idea!

Though apparently it has gotten not-so-great reviews because there's a lot of co-writing, and the lyrics don't live up to Relient K awesomeness. That worries me a bit. And I have to admit I didn't buy their last album of covers, either (mostly they covered a Justin Beiber song...oh dear). So even though I worry about the state of Relient K currently, I can block it out and pretend to live in ignorant bliss, loving their old albums. :)

I really do love Matt Thiessen's voice. But my favorite thing about Relient K is the lyrics. They have some incredibly goofy, random nonsense songs that make me smile. But they also have some of the most honest, heartfelt lyrics I've ever heard...ones that make me wonder if they've been reading my mind because they're writing exactly how I feel.

Anyway, this is one of my favorite Relient K songs, as well as one of my favorite songs in general. (I read a while back people assuming this song was talking about a girl. That surprised me, because I never thought it was written towards anyone but God, and I still think that. :)

Until next time,


  1. I used to listen to Relient K in middle school. Maybe I'll give them a listen again :) Also, thank you SO MUCH for suggesting some music for me on my blog! I'm going through it all and I've found some to-die-for songs!!

  2. I too am a huge old-school Reliant K fan... I just pretend their newer albums don't really exist. I tend to get very attached to certain artist's sounds and dislike it when they change! > U <
