While I usually focus on individual lines, I’ve done a few lengthier musical posts, like with covers better than the originals, impressive foreign language songs and songs to lighten your mood and make you smile. I’ve been listening to quite a lot recently, so thought I’d add another. The really talented bands can keep you listening for minutes on end and make you lose yourself, even just with one song. Limiting myself to one song per artist (and you’ll see most of them represented here), here are eight awesome tracks of seven minutes and above. Feel free to share your favourites below.
I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures
Are all I can feel
Taken from the song Pictures of You by The Cure, from the album Disintegration (1989). The album has long been one of my favourites.
