THE FEDERAL EMPIRE - YOU AND DRUGS

Music, Original MixEricComment

This new one from upstart folk/pop group The Federal Empire was sent over to me the weekend, and was so damn catchy I couldn't help but throw it up this week on BB. The message behind it really struck me as well albeit rather bluntly. It's a simple concept - drugs give you that quick fix, that high, but ultimately leave you feeling unfulfilled or wanting more. "What's the difference between you and drugs" the lead singer Chad sings with perfect precision. The band ends the latter part of the tune focusing on love because as they say, "Love lasts longer, is giving and selfless, and makes you feel good for longer than just the instant. The song can be applied to so many different things because we have a lot of "drugs" in our every day lives now." So true, and applicable to our fleeting, and frequently unfocused millenial generation.
