• The 10 best songs from...

    9. Mai. 2011, 21:20 von borntohang

    A "guide" of sorts to three of the most important english pop groups.


    1. No Distance Left to Run
    - For the despair, the lyrics, the guitars, the impenetrable darkness and Damon's bleeding heart.

    2. Fool's Day
    - For the timeless and brilliant pop-melody, the simple yet beautiful lyrics about everyday life and also for Graham's signature guitars. And for the fact that this was their comeback song. I love a good comeback.

    3. Clover Over Dover
    - For it's theme of impossible love and suicide. For it's crystal clear pop-sense and ditto production.

    4. Out of Time
    - For the melancholy and sadness in Damon's voice and the incredible vocal melody, combined with the fantastic lyrics on how everyday life gets us down and time just keeps slipping away.

    5. Battery in Your Leg
    - For it's incredibly sad melody/atmosphere/guitars/lyrics. A song made for crying to.

    6. Death Of A Party
    - For it's beautiful contempt for common socializing and also for it's ominous soundscape. Brilliant stuff this.

    Elliott Smith:

    A picture of dissatisfaction
    That he can only see as a junkie
    Though I might be straight as an arrow
    He's busy shaking hands with my monkey
    Busy shaking hands with my monkey

    Well I go in the car
    Straight to the bar
    Where my sweetie pours the beer
    For the millions of fans ignoring the bands
    He's in my ear
    Wants me to live in denial
    Says you've gotta settle for something
    Though it might not be really living
    Anything is better than nothing

    from New Monkey

    Essex Dogs

    I remember thinking murder in the car
    Watching dogs somersault through sprinklers on tiny lawns
    I remember the graffiti
    We are your children coming in with spray cans of paint
    I remember the sunsets and the plains of cement
    And the way the night just seemed to turn the colour of orangeade

    In this town, cellular phones are hot with teens
    In this town, we all go to terminal pubs
    It helps us sweat out those angry bits of life
    From this town, the English army grind their teeth into glass
    You know you'll get a kicking tonight
    The smell of puke and piss
    The smell of puke and piss on your stilettos

    Here comes that panic attack
    My heart stops... and then it starts
    Give me a drink
    I'll drink your round
    I take you round the pole
    It's cold up here (I can see the universe waiting by a minibus)
    You'll catch flu
    Or you'll catch the city
    Either way, you'll catch flu
    Or you'll catch the city
  • The way the night just seemed to turn the colour of orangeade

  • Playlist: Animal Inspiration

    10. Apr. 2006, 21:09 von crono333

    So I had this cool idea for a playlist... animals! I just took any track I have with an animal species in the title (or closely animal related) and threw them all together. I only took the studio version of any song with multiples available (no live, demos). I was quite surprised by the number of songs in the playlist... 89! So 2.2% of all my songs are animal songs... hmmm.

    Anyways, you guys should give it a try... I had a most interesting animal-themed weekend listening to the whole playlist. For my own personal amusement I tallied up my zoo population (in animal-alphabetical order of course):

    2 ants, 2 bears, a bee, a beetle, 3 unidentified birds, a blackbird, a bull, 2 butterflies, 4 cats, some cattle, a cockroach (why?), a cow, a crow, a deer, 9 dogs, a dolphin, 2 generic fish, 2 flies, a frog, a gerbil, a goat, 2 horses, 2 lambs, a leech, a mockingbird, 5 monkeys, 2 mosquitos, a mule, 2 otters, 3 pigs, 3 rats, a rattlesnake, a raven, a rhinoseros, a rooster, a sardine…
