It was on the first day of April that I stumbled upon Urbandub's announcement regarding their disbandment. While all the time that I thought of it as another April Fool's Day joke, the reality just sank in yesterday when I saw photos of #Endless, the band's final performance as one unit last Saturday.
And just like any other truth we heard at some point of our lives, IT HURTS.
I honestly don't know and care much about the individual lives of each of the band members, but ever since I first heard First of Summer ages ago, then came the rest of their songs, I slowly found myself falling in love with their music.
Why? Try listening to their songs and you'll find yourself captivated with lyrics which usually mirrored our daily struggles, most especially the matters of the heart.
To add up to that, I've been using their song lines as captions to some of my photographs or status messages in Facebook. In fact, even until now, their song The Fight is Over still holds the spot for being my official break-up anthem.
But if you're too lazy to lend their songs an ear, I've listed, in no particular order, my most played Urbandub songs and the lines which hit me the hardest.
1. THE FIGHT IS OVER (Under Southern Lights, 2007)
"Explain to me what has become of us. With words released, we can never take them back. For all that were worth now. Not even pleading can save us."
How could you not emote to this song? I'm fighting the urge to post the entire song. Because every line is definitely #hugot.
