TFG1MIKE 365 – 2022 Day 278 – Nickelback – Those Days!!!

RESPECT THE BACK!!!!

NICKELBACK is BACK!!!

“Those Days”

Day 278 of 2022 is here! The 365 ish of TFG1Mike is back! And on October 5, 2022 Nickelback released the second single, “Those Days” from the upcoming 10th studio album “Get Rollin'”!!!!! The first single “San Quentin” kicks your ass, but “Those Days” basically rips your heart out for nostalgia sake!

Man have I been waiting for this! It’s been 5 years since NB released “Feed The Machine”, and now it’s time to “Get Rollin'”! What I love about this second single is that it feels like “Photograph”, but at the same time it’s different. I’m not a “lyric video” person, but man I kinda loved the lyric video for this song. As I said above, it just hits that switch track on the Nostalgia Train!

“Those days that felt like another life…..”

That line…. Yes the past is the past, but lately I’ve felt like my past is better than my present. I’m healthy ish, and I have all my friends, but with Karen gone, a big part of my life is now gone. I know I shouldn’t dwell on it, but “moving on” is a difficult thing to do. So when I heard this single, it reminded me of all the good times Karen and I had in the 4 and a half years we had together. I’m so excited for the NEW Nickelback album though, and I know if Karen were here she would indulge my excitement.

“Those Days” just has a hook throughout it, and everything that they call out, I remember it all. Just look at the lyrics:

Remember when the streetlights came on
And we had to be home?
Remember when Elm Street came on?
Couldn’t watch it alone
Remember every prank call we made?
And star sixty-nine
Remember trying to hit eighty-eight
To go back in time?
Remember when they played Purple Rain
To our first slow dance?
Remember when we thought that first base
Was just holding hands?

Those days come back in the dead of night
Those days that felt like another life
What would you be doin’ back in those days?

We’d be turnin’ up the stereo
And play it everywhere we’d go
And so did everyone we’d know in those days
And everybody got to fall in love
With every movie made for us
God, I couldn’t get enough of those days

Remember every poster we had
Hanging on the wall
Remember every t-shirt we stole
From the local mall?
(Ace of Spades by Motörhead)
Remember Guns n’ Roses came out?
We were standin’ in line
Remember front row at that show?
Camped out all night
(Got so high, Sweet Child O’ Mine)

Those days come back in the dead of night
Those days that felt like another life
What would you be doin’ back in those days?

We’d be turnin’ up the stereo
And play it everywhere we’d go
And so did everyone we’d know in those days
And everybody got to fall in love
With every movie made for us
God, I couldn’t get enough of those days

The time we’d waste ’cause life could wait
What we’d give to relive just a single day
The time we’d waste ’cause life could wait
What we’d give to relive just a single day
Instead of turnin’ the page

We’d be turnin’ up the stereo
And play it everywhere we’d go
And so did everyone we’d know in those days
And everybody got to fall in love
With every movie made for us
God, I couldn’t get enough of those days

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh)
Those days that felt like another life
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh)
Those days come back in the dead of night
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh)
Those days that felt like another life
What would you be doin’ back in those days?

The reason this song speaks to me so loudly, is because these are all the things I had hoped Karen and I could have experienced together. There were a lot of experiences we had when she was still here. However this song makes me miss her even more. The tones and the instrumental on this song is just so soothing. The drum back beat is entrancing! So YES I’m ready for the new Nickelback album. I’m ready to be emotionally rocked to my core, with a band I’ve loved for over 20 years! So let’s all “Get Rollin'” with Nickelback, and everyone should remember “Those Days”!!!
