Harken Back to the 90s Rock Scene With LongDayLateNight’s “Falling Down the Stairs”

Harken Back to the 90s Rock Scene With LongDayLateNight’s “Falling Down the Stairs”

Is there anything in today’s pop culture that reminds you of your childhood? 

As today’s movies, music, fashion, and TV shows often hark back to the elements of past decades, Many artists, companies, and producers reinvent past concepts for future listeners. As a person who grew up in the 90s, I see so often in today’s pop culture. Some examples are hearing new jack swing in recent Korean pop songs, reboots or remakes of favorite TV shows that I grew up watching, and fashion inspired by 90s pop culture.

When I first listened to LongDayLateNight’s newest release “Falling Down the Stairs”, I sensed some sort of nostalgia in the song. Continue reading to find out why I felt this. Also, listen to “Falling Down the Stairs” and tell me if you sensed the same thing.

The Lyrics and the Musicality of LongDayLateNight’s “Falling Down the Stairs”

LongDayLateNight

When talking about the song itself and the lyrics, LongDayLateNight described it in this way:

“Falling Down the Stairs” is the latest installment in LongDayLateNight’s collection of small-town anecdotes. Detailing the boredom of post-college freedom, the song takes a humorous look in the mirror and examines laziness and lethargic impulses at their most mundane.

Dry and self-effacing, the lyrics of “Falling Down the Stairs” encapsulate singer Toby Davis’ personal trajectory with humor that has characterized all of LDLN’s recent singles and serves as a precarious for what’s about to come.

As for the sound or the musicality of for the new single “Falling Down the Stairs”, I sensed that this song was something like a 90’s Weezer song, but in a good way. The tune is a high-energy rock with blazing guitars, upbeat tempo, a great melody, and a great drum beat. It is an addictive tune, but yet nostalgic. Due to how it was composed and arranged, the song reminds me of a song by Weezer or Green Day or any 90’s high energy rock songs. The blazing guitars, upbeat tempo, a great melody, and a great drum beat made me reminisce about my childhood and growing up with 90’s rock. 

LongDayLateNight has said they are a pop-rock band. But, I ponder if they dabble in alt-rock when they composed the song. The reason why I wonder is that “Falling Down the Stairs” shares some similar common features of 90’s alt-rock tunes like Weezer’s “Buddy Holly”: high-pitched guitar solos, drums are very prominent, and an upbeat tempo. I might be wrong but I still wonder if LongDayLateNight was inspired by alt-rock when they wrote “Falling Down the Stairs”.

My Final Thoughts

LongDayLateNight

I recommend listening to LongDayLateNight’s newest single “Falling Down the Stairs” not only for the nostalgic factor but also for how well-written it is. The elements of the blazing guitars, upbeat tempo, a great melody, and a great drum beat come together to make a catchy, high-energy rock tune. I actually love this song and it is on my favorites list on Spotify for quite some time.

LongDayLateNight has been compared to the likes of The Smiths and Arctic Monkeys. But, while listening to “Falling Down the Stairs”, my mind kept on wondering if the band was inspired by the alt-rock or indie rock of the 90s like Weezer and Green Day when writing this song. This song screams 90s nostalgia whenever I listen to it. I wonder if anyone else feels the same way as I do. Although the band has only been around for a few years since 2017, “Falling Down the Stairs” most definitely harkens back to the 90s alt-rock scene.

  18. Ramil Hinolan

    I am in my 50’s and this song reminds me of my youth., when I dont care about the world.

  19. Louise

    I think the 90’s revival has most definitely begun! I spot it in so many everyday things at the moment. I just wish the music of today was a little more ‘innocent’ like it was back then. I loved being able to sing along to all the latest chart-toppers without having to check I wasn’t singing something rude or offensive! Off to have a listen to LongDayLateNight’s track now. I’ll let you know what I think of it 🙂

  28. Kathy Kenny Ngo

    They have the same feels as the New Kids on the Block. Love that era.

  29. Jordan

    I’ll have to take a listen to this one since I’m a child of the 90s. It’s interesting that you said they sound a bit like Weezer AND Arctic Monkeys because I find those to be a bit different. Maybe they’re somewhere in the middle? I’ve yet to really find new bands that truly remind me of the 90s scene. They’re doing a great job these days emulating the 80s, though! Maybe I just need to wait a little longer. 😉

    1. Mark

      Well written post. Didn’t know much about them until this post. Got to put my ears to music more lol

    I do really enjoy 90’s music. Specifically 90’s alternative rock.

  33. Lavern Moore

    I never heard the single until now and it sounds great. Not sure how I missed it in the 90s but I was all over the place.

  34. blair villanueva

    It’s cool that these kids are into 90s rock and music. It is more nostalgic remembering life in the 90s.

  35. Jackline A

    Music in the 90s was so much better. Love this.

  36. Heidi M

    I haven’t heard this music before, feel I need to listen to it a bit more. I like your enthusiasm and background knowledge, thanks for sharing.

  37. Listened to Falling Down the Stairs, and I could definitely hear a vibe in there somewhere between Weezer and Green Day. Love the 90’s alternative vibe!

    Actually, this is the first time to hear this song and it’s beautiful. Listening to this gives me a good vibes of the 90’s.

    Alt-rock has never been my genre, but the way you have described the song has convinced me to listen to it once at least.
