We sat down with guitarist Dan from Hope Fast Hope and asked him which 10 Tracks Changed his life…
Tiny Raindrop by Balance & Composure
This was the first song that got me into B&C and really started my listening of emo/grunge music and got me hooked on so many other bands. RIP Balance.
Limelight by RUSH
One of the first cover songs my band in high school learned that got me obsessed with RUSH & prog music as a whole.
Threnody by Goldmund
Found this song a few years ago randomly on a playlist on Spotify & it’s stuck with me just because of how hauntingly real it feels. It feels like you’re sitting in the room listening to all the creaks and sounds and every little motion of the performer & the piano.
I’d Hate to be You When People Find out What This Song is About by Mayday Parade
One of the first tracks i learned how to play when i was first learning guitar, I remember how daunting the solo section was at the time.
What a Catch, Donnie by Fall out Boy
I feel like normally people wouldn’t list this one, but What a Catch had a really deep impact on me years after it came out when I was in college.
Deathless by Moving Mountains
I could literally listen to this song on loop for hours. From the beginning to the end, all 7+ minutes of Deathless are just perfect and I wish I could write something as incredible as this.
The Only Difference between Martyrdom & Suicide is Press Coverage by Panic! At the Disco
This was the first track I ever really learned to play guitar & sing at the same time when I was first taking vocal lessons so it was definitely a big one for me.
I So Hate Consequences by Relient K
I listened to this on repeat after I had a major falling out with a friend back in High School and it still feels relevant at this point.
Rory by Foxing
Man, this song just gives me all the feels and the band as a whole has had a huge influence on the way i play and conduct myself on stage.
Late Lives by Pianos Become The Teeth
I spent almost 2 years falling asleep to the B-Side of their record ‘Keep You’ every night and it would always start with this song. I’ve probably listened to it over a thousand times and it still just has such an impact.
