"It's Alright With God"
« on: December 01, 2011, 02:46:35 PM »
I keep singing/humming this song. Very catchy. I don't think the liner notes say much about it in the retrospective (Easter Sessions). Has Ben talked about this song in interviews? Any background info? I made a playlist of the new BFF songs on the retrospective and really enjoy all of them. I didn't know Amelia, Prince Charming or Food Court. I think Rock Star was listed as 2000-can't remember if BFF or solo but another good song.  Mike

Randomness, but the intro to the live at MySpace follows this song pretty closely up until a certain point.  Anyone else notice this?

Amelia Bright was released by Hotel Lights as well, without flubbed lyrics (and a few changed).  Rock Star was on one of the EP's from Ben's solo time between RtS and SfS.

I forgot Rock Star was on Sunny 16 (hadn't put it on the ipod). It wasn't really my favorite song at the time but I like it a bit better now. I did know Amelia was a HL song but only heard a few snippets--certainly didn't know it has slightly different lyrics. Finally, I'll have to pull out the myspace dvd again--I know the 54 one by heart but haven't watched the myspace one that much (and that's been awhile). Mike

Back then people were already calling it that. And I think there was a DVD listing somewhere that initially called it by this title. I think I should check off that I've seen it live then, yes??
