I’ve referenced all kinds of artists and genres on my ever-expanding Music page. However, not all songs that I really rate will have lyrics that would fit into an entry for Line(s) of the Day. Below are eight songs that are so superb that I had to create a special post so I could share them with you. Are you a fan of any of the artists mentioned?
I can still remember where I was when I heard this song for the first time. The album is one of my all-time favourites, but this song is still the one that stands out most. Out of context the words won’t grab you, but in the song itself they just seem perfect.
Just close your eyes and float away to this gem by a band that show when you’re in top form you can make anything work. Even making a shipping forecast your lyrics.
There was a time when this song was everywhere. This short track is just one reason why their 2010 Mercury Prize win for the album was so deserved.
This song from the Tron soundtrack shows that not all remakes have to be bad and can sometimes produce something very special.
I’ve already referenced my love of Modest Mouse here, and I’m more than happy to mention them again when a guitar riff is as delightful as this.
Aphex Twin has continually produced instrumental delights, but this one just has such a pure, seemingly innocent sound that it will always stand out to me.
There wasn’t a lyric within the song that I felt would fit into a Line(s) of the Day, but I challenge you to listen to this song without hitting repeat at least twice. The pop music equivalent of eating a doughnut without licking your lips afterwards.
The lyrics may look repetitive on paper, but then again, when love has us under its spell, it sure is hard to get out. A magnificent soundtrack from a fantastic film, but this is still my favourite track of them all.
