A place on Ocean Avenue
Lesser Known Yellowcard songs.
12/09/09 at 11:17 AM by Yellowcard2006
Yellowcard is my favorite band. I figure I'd put together a blog that consists of all of their lesser known/non-album songs. Some of these songs are my favorite out of their entire catalog. Hope you take to time to check 'em out

First up is the entire Underdog EP
It's one of the lesser known Yellowcard releases and it should not be ignored. It was released between One For the Kids and Ocean Avenue It has a sound more similar to OFTK but with some darker moods and maturity.

Choice tracks are
  • Rocket
  • Avondale
  • Finsh Line

It doesn't seem to be on iTunes but you can listen to some samples on this amazon page HERE

Check out a review by Adrian Villagomez HERE
Next is a song called" Firewater"
It was released on Punk Goes Acoustic 2 and it has some of the most heartfelt and relateable lyrics Ryan has ever wrote. The lyrics combined with a beautiful violin line and acoustic playing makes this song one of my favorites.

Give it a listen HERE
Which brings me to the b-sides section of the blog
If consider yourself a Yellowcard fan. You need to hear these songs. If you have, well then I satue you. But if you've yet to do this, please correct that as soon as possible

The b-sides to check out are
  • Three Flights Down (Lights and Sounds b-sideEmotional, powerful, honest. This song has my favorite lyrics of any Yellowcard song)

    Listen to it HERE
  • When We're Old Men (Lights and Sounds b-sideMost likely written about Ben leaving the band)

    Listen to it HERE
  • Bombers (Paper Walls b-side, really great violin line and a huge chorus)

    Listen to it HERE
  • Hey Mike! (Ocean Avenue b-side, just a fun track about friends that have grown apart)

    Listen to it HERE
Well I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do. Leave thoughts in the replies.

Stop! Turn! Take a look around

I'm currently listening to Yellowcard's album Lights and Sounds and I must say it really is some of their best work. Along with one of my favorite CDs. Should have been much bigger than it was. Not to mention the b-sides which are also excellent.

Well that's a BIG IF

Ryan Key's new band Big If is currently pumping pop-rock goodness through my speakers. Yellowcard is on break, but if Big If can get an album out I think I'll make it through.

If you too love anything pop-rock pop-punk or Yellowcard.

Sweet myspace rips here
