GreenDay – Wake Me Up When September Ends

wake-me-up-when-september-ends2
The song makes me think of September 11…Cause, It says September…
Although the song originally was centered around Billie Joe Armstrongs’ personal tragedy, Samuel Bayer created his own personal vision..
His interpretation is brought to life with both power and restraint,
and is likely to provoke tears, a visceral human response to pain..

But, anyways that’s what the song is about..You know, just like “this is life“,
and I think they portray that extremely well through this song…

They decided to make music video (you can see below) about the Iraq war because of its had a big effect on everyone..
It is fleshed out by images of young romance and graphic battle scenes.
The end of the mini-film’s story is ambiguous,
and this ambiguity gives “Wake Me Up When September Ends” much of its power..

For me, this song is the best form Green Day, ever..!!
This songs makes me think about how I miss the past of my life,
and at the same time It makes me look at the future and wonder..
Besides, a lot of things happen in my life in September…
My birthday, my thesis seminar, and also my final test of my bachelor thesis, etc…

I’m no expert on finding the right chords for songs,
and I have no idea if this is how it really is played,
so there might be other ways to play this..
But, I guess, the chord below is still make sense..
I just love this song and it’s impossible not to try to play the songs..

The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends..

Like we did when spring began
Wake me up when September ends..

Yeah, people get old, situation change, moments happened..
But, this song reminds me to have a faith,
That I hope someday I’ll get something that could last forever…
I mean, “the stability”.. Not just another lost…

Hope you enjoy it.. ^_^
