This week I decided to review something from my youth, A New Found Glory’s From the Screen to Your Stereo. I would blast this album in my 1995 Pontiac Sunfire screaming right along to the lyrics (probably off key, but hey I’m no singer here.) Their recreations of these classic love songs released over three decades is just amazing.
I honestly don’t have a favorite song from this album because they’re all amazing. They remind me of different times in my life; from my childhood to my teenage years. “The Never Ending Story Theme” reminds me of my childhood a million times over, and makes me want to get on Falcor’s back and ride the wind with him. If you don’t know what that is, then you are definitely missing out on life. The “The Glory of Love” from The Karate Kid Part II even makes an appearance, and I would definitely not karate chop this song. The Cindy Lauper remake of “The Goonies “R” Good Enough” from the 80’s movie The Goonies, is just on point.
The “Titanic” remake is even awesome. I’m not the biggest Celine Dion fan (I know shocking), but the way they sped it up was a way better arrangement for the song, and I like this version so much more. Sorry to her devoted fans, but listen to this version, and I’m sure you’ll at least agree that its awesome.
All in all this album gets five stars. It’s a great balance of old songs with a great punk pop twist, but you don’t have to take my word for it. Go have a listen, and I promise you wont be disappointed.
