Bleached - Sour Candy

Although the opening bars of this song strongly resemble a Simple Plan song,*** if you wait about 10 seconds more you will be treated to punk princess vocals instead of the whiny voice from "I'm Just a Kid." I LOVE this song. It makes me feel nostalgic for a childhood I never even had. There's mentions of driving around, drinking cheap whiskey, and picking flowers on LSD. In case anyone is wondering, I was a lifeguard who read Harry Potter in the off-hours. In spite of this fact, I still feel wistfulness in my bones when I listen. That could be the weed cookie I ate, but it could also be a testament to the power of "Sour Candy". I think it is the punk guitars coupled with the retrospective lyrics. They tell a story!! "never really was the talking type / till I stumbled on some crazy nights / what in the hell was I thinking when I said hello " Now, that's a movie I want to watch. Starring Brie Larson and Miles Teller. Also at it's core, "Sour Candy" just has killer pop hooks. What more do you need?

P.s You guys look like indie Charlie's Angels. #wheresBosley

***which actually adds a lot of cred to Simple Plan if you ask me. I knew they were unsung heroes of the early 2000s.
