<p>This week, season 2 finale! This last post is an ode to
(Midwest) Emo music in general, and a (breakup) song in
particular.</p>

<p>For many years I had heard about the genre “emo” but I
always dismissed it as something I surely wouldn’t like. And
sure enough, some of it is really not my jam. However, there
are several variants and subgenres. One of the subgenres I
like
is <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midwest_emo">Midwest
emo</a>, which is closer to progressive rock than
others. And they seem to share my love for <a href="/music-monday/posts/2020-08-24-arpeggios.html">arpeggios</a>, too
(see last week’s Music Monday post!).</p>

<p>One of the most important bands in that genre
is <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Football_(band)">American
Football</a>, and their most well-known song is probably the
wonderful Never Meant (which was <a href="http://music.hcoder.org/music-monday/posts/2019-04-08-never-meant.html">featured once in an earlier
Music Monday</a>):</p>

:title => "American Football - Never Meant"
} %>

<p>This breakup song has clearly struck a chord in many
people, judging by
the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoyLpDAQQsk&list=PL7bybKzEZF4w7NMPVmIO3lLfAHwiq8MAK&index=1">amazing
list of covers</a> people have made.</p>

<p>In fact, I love this song so much that it even inspired me
to write a storytelling game called
“<a href="https://hardcorenarrativist.itch.io/neve-rmeant">neve
rmeant</a>”!</p>
