Oasis - 'Don't Look Back In Anger'.

It's another hair on the back of the neck raiser (for me), a few years ago my best mate died & I was on my way over to see his Mam I put the radio on just to numb my senses even more, then Oasis - Don't Look Back In Anger came on & I just sobbed like a baby all the way through the song (it doesn't have the same effect these days but I still think it's a brilliant song).

love

Grim

<!--emo&:(-->Image<!--endemo--> Oh, so sorry to hear about your best friend's death. My eyes are stinging just reading this. I've had family members and distant relatives, some young, pass on. But never a close friend.

Tony is his name, he was a briliant guy, always there for me, he was only 39 when he died. I will always think of him, every so often something happens & it brings memories flooding back (not so often the tears, though I must admit I'm starting to fill up now).
I wish I could believe in angels.

love

Grim

I am so very sorry about this, Grim, he must have been a truely special presence in your life. Real friends are hard to find - and to lose them to death must be so painful! And he was really young, only 39. My uncle was 39 when he suddenly passed away, I know how helpless and lost such happening could make you feel.

wow, it's cool that this strange/evoking topic came up.

my last relationship was a bright ray of sunshine when it was going well. then it became the shackles of hell. "the beatles" were a constant, both of us adoring the band. then the relationship ended.

this was pretty much four years ago, and it's just within the past six months or so that i can enjoy the band again. perhaps that sounds extreme or exaggerating, or whatever, but it's true. even 'here comes the sun' made my nerves bloody.

My dad was almost 39 when he passed on... kinda' gives you a new appreciation for life when you think about it. Its more fleeting than we realize...

But uh. on a lighter note, The Decembrists- I Dreamt I Was An Architect is a breathtakingly beautiful song... the only thing that kept last years roomie and I from murdering eachother in our sleep

Ben Folds - Jesusland

It's just perfect, (recently released as a single also). I heard it Live when I saw Folds back in June, brilliant also, he said it was about "comercialised religion". Some of the lines in the song are just great: "Beautiful McMansions on a hill, that overlook a highway, with riverboat casinos and you still have yet to see a soul". It seems like a tramp ("A quarter for every block") just walking around the town noticing all of these things.
It's mandatory that I put it on the gmail acount. Anyone who isn't into Ben folds or Ben Folds Five, you need to be, honestly! (Mozzerlla will agree i'm sure <!--emo&:B-->Image<!--endemo-->)
You're gonna kill me, is that your plan?

ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN - Ocean Rain

A great musical track, deeply romantic but at the same time deeply sad, as in having to let go a dream and face the facts. The lyrics are very poetic yet very clear. The outro of the song is one of the greatest vocal effords in musical history. It all comes together in this song...

ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN - Nocturnal Me

Orchestral bombast with a very mysterious, dark glance, but with rather upward lyrics. I was blown away from the first line on: "an ice-capped fire, old burning wood"... Stunning!

INDOCHINE - Comateen I

Nicola Sirkis' warm vocals, the mixture of different musical styles (synthesisers intro with an oriental touch - electric chorus - a cappella outro) and the unique melting of deeply depressed themes (death, comatose) with words of hope... A truely unique track in all possible ways. Those who don't understand French: look up the translations, as it's truely a superb lyrics.
Keep it flaming your desire, always rising higher - Aim for stars and hit the sky
(Echo & The Bunnymen - Evergreen, 1996)

Cannonball by The Breeders

I've always thought of this as a perfect song, totally satisfying from beginning to end.

Re: Perfect songs........

Postby rorschach » Tue Mar 25, 2008 4:44 am

The songs I consider perfect aren't necessarily my favourite by that artist (Though I don't know why, probably to do with accessibility I guess). I could go on forever, but what would that achieve?

Michael jackson - Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough
" - Billie Jean
The Chakachas - Jungle Fever
Beach Boys - I just Wasn't Made For These Times
Beach Boys - God Only Knows
The Beatles - Happiness Is A Warm Gun
Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever
Bob Dylan - Just Like A Woman
Silver Jews - Random Rules
Silver Jews - Trains Across The Sea
Silver Jews - Smith & Jones Forever
Prince - Raspberry Beret
The Clash - Train In Vain
Arcade Fire - No Cars Go
Aphex Twin - Alberto Balsalm
Aphex Twin - Next Heap With
Tapes'N'Tapes - Insistor
Gary Numan- Cars
MGMT - Electric Feel
Neutral Milk Hotel - Naomi
Neutral Milk Hotel - Two Headed Boy
Boards Of Canada - Julie & Candy
White Stripes - The Denial Twist
Black Keys - Set You Free
Amy Winehouse - Love Is A Losing Game
Lionel Richie - All Night Long
Hot Chip - Over & Over
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Turn Into
Beastie Boys - Sabotage
Swan lake - All Fires
TV On The Radio - Staring At The Sun




I'm really frustrating myself with my constant post editing
Freedom is the only way, yeah
