Top 100 Emo Songs of All Time
11. Sense Field | "Overstand"
"Overstand" by Sense Field from the album Building (1996)
“Understand what it is to be loved by someone who understands.” It sounds simplistic to the jaded ear 15 plus years later, but for a generation of punk kids in the ’90s learning to feel something besides alienation and confusion, this song was eye- and heart-opening. Part of the important second wave of emo bands at the time that were popularizing the sound, Sense Field is occasionally woefully overlooked in the canon. But for people who understand, this is what it feels like to love a band that understood.
