Song-A-Day: February 3

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are slated to release their third full-length later on this year, and they’re a band who I think could foreseeably take a big step forward and find themselves in the AOTY discussions. But that’s looking ahead when today’s about looking back, to five years ago today when the group released their debut self-titled album which started them on their path towards headlining our 35th birthday anniversary (among other things)! Our Song-A-Day today goes to a song off of that album titled “Contender”.

Look what you’ve done
Look what you’ve done
What do you have now?
Things that never come
Another name in a dirty room
Is it time to come down?

at the back of a crowded scene
you saw the boys in white sing
“im a pretender”
but you never were a contender

i heard your same old tune, singing city sins
like you were the first one
gave up books for film, gave up film for time
now that you’ve got none
