 [NEWS] The Maine – Am I Pretty?

周三很難過?我問跟你介紹一首充滿正能量、發人深省的歌曲吧。流行朋克的新寵明星 The Maine 發布備受注目最新專輯 American Candy 的第二支單曲 Am I Pretty?。樂團在視頻首兩分鐘邀請了數位朋友分享從前因外貌而被歧視的黑暗日子。歌曲內容非常有意義,指出每個人必須擁抱個人價值,亦透過歌詞諷刺各種社會矛盾。主唱 John O’Callaghan,介紹歌曲背後的信息説:「我們相信所有人都是美麗的。因為你的眼睛是不同的,每説一句話五官都會有點改變,世界上也不會有任何人會與你一模一樣。缺點就像指紋般,又有如你與生俱來的自由意志。」

Need some powerful song to cheer you up in the mid week? Pop punk’s new favorite star The Maine released their second single, “Am I Pretty?” off their latest full-length album American Candy. The song embraces one’s individuality and tackles issues such as self-esteem and social expectations within its satirical lyrics. The band has invited a few individuals to speak about the darker days of being criticized as “not pretty”. Lead singer, John O’Callaghan, describes the message behind the song: “You are beautiful because your eyes are different sizes and your lisp gets in between your tongue and teeth every time you try to say “something”. You are beautiful because there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone else on this Earth like you. Because your flaws are like fingerprints and should be embraced just like the free will that resides inside.”

Bringing their kids out to the shows now, and it’s a wide demographic of fans that we’ve kind of developed over the years.I’m not trying to knock all the other genres, but that stuff kind of comes and goes. Rock music, you get lifelong fans out of this genre.” YES, METAL FOR LIFE!
