There are many songs that deal with self-harm. Many artists have a song about self-harm and many more have references to it. Some examples are Between the Trees’ “The Way She Feels,” The Dresden Dolls’ “Bad Habit,” Rascal Flatts’ “Otherside,” and Sia’s “Breathe Me.”
Between the Trees’ “The Way She Feels”
“The Way She Feels” is the lead single from Between the Trees’ latest album, The Story and the Song. The band formed in 2005 with lead vocalist Ryan Kirkland and brothers Josh and Jeremy Butler. They later added keyboardist Wes Anderson and guitarist Brad Kriebel. The band began writing a range of songs that reflected their diverse influences.
The Dresden Dolls’ “Bad Habit”
If you are a Dresden Dolls fan, you have no reason to like them. Their music is terrible and their looks are shallow. They are as shallow as fans of Hilary Duff or the Backstreet Boys. Even so, they can sing. I hope that someday, they will find a new group and find something good to listen to.
Rascal Flatts’ “Otherside”
Rascal Flatts’ “Othotherside” is a song about losing control. It is a moving, heartfelt track that will help listeners deal with tough times. The song also pays homage to the late “Rockin Rob” Dapello, who died from a brain aneurysm in February 2001. Robert was an influential member of the South Bay music scene. He was 33 years old when he passed away.
Sia’s “Breathe Me”
Sia’s “Breathe Me,” the third track on her third studio album, was released on 19 April 2004. The song is the album’s second single and has sold over 1.2 million copies in the United States alone. It has been featured in a wide variety of media, including a video for the movie “Breathe Me.” Spotify users have played the song over 100 million times.
Sia revealed in interviews that she attempted suicide the night she wrote the song. She had originally planned to check into a hotel room and take all the pills she had in her possession. But a phone call from an old friend changed her mind. She later got sober and decided to continue with her life.
Eminem’s “Slim Shadd”
Slim Shadd was the alter-ego of Eminem, a rapper known for his violent lyrics. The alter-ego was featured on every album by the rapper from 1997 to 2009. He was also featured on the album Dream about the Curtain Closing, on which he shot himself in the head.
The album’s cover art depicts Eminem in a fetal position, against a gray loading dock. He’s holding a bottle of booze and an empty pill vial. Clearly, the rap artist’s monetary success has not eased his rage. His anger remains raw, and he wears his heart on his sleeve.
Eminem’s “Slim ShaDd” has been a critical success in the hip-hop world. While many people are skeptical of the rapper’s music, his songs have garnered a dedicated following. Fans of the rap artist have hailed “Slim Shadd” as one of his best. In a nutshell, Eminem has succeeded in changing the game of hip-hop.
The album’s cover art has a tongue-in-cheek public service announcement. “The Slim Shadd” was originally titled “Just the Two of Us,” but Eminem changed the song’s name because of sample clearance issues. Hailie’s vocals were featured on “Slim Shadd” as a surprise appearance in the video.
“The Real Slim Shaddy” is one of Eminem’s most enduring songs, and it is widely regarded as one of his best albums. While it was released twenty-five years ago, it has become one of his most popular singles and is still gaining traction. The song implies that people are attempting to mimic him or his music, and it’s an indictment of pop culture.
Manic Street Preachers’ “One for the Cutters”
If you like psychedelic garage rock, you’ll love the new album from the Manic Street Preachers. This is the band’s first album in a decade and their most accessible release to date. They’ve crafted a compelling mix of classic rock and alternative rock, and it is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. The song “One for the Cutters” has been a fan favorite for years. The album also features an extra song called “Don’t Take No For an Answer.”
