My final pick from my week with the Stereophonics is the single It Mean Nothing. Released in 2007, this single reached number 12 in the UK chart.
Taken from their album, Pull the Pin, this song is a rock ballad. Kelly's growls of It Means Nothing leave you puzzled at first, but then he continues "If I haven't got you" and it all makes sense.
This has a real rock feel and it makes you feel quite emotional. I think we have all felt that longing, that emptiness when the person we love isn't with us, or when it's unrequited. I'm not sure if this is what they had in mind when they were writing it, but its certainly what I feel when I have listened to it.
Now the odd thing with this track, is that I must have missed it first time around. I just don't remember it at all. Whether that's because it didn't chart too high, so it didn't get so much airplay, or whether I was just not listening to much new music at the time I'm not quite sure. I chose it specifically this week to have a listen to as part of my week with the Stereos, because I hadn't heard it.
I can report that it is a worthy choice to add to the 6 songs I have already listened to this week. You can imagine yourself turning this on loud if you are going through a rough patch in your relationship, or if you are in the throws of breaking up. It has that certain rawness where you feel sad, angry but still in love and in utter turmoil as a result! It sounds good though if you are loved up, or anywhere in between!
I am adding this one to my playlist as its really struck a chord with me. I think this is a fantastic record and well worth a listen. If you want to check out my other music reviews then check out My Music page. Happy listening.
