TOP 5 MUSIC OBSESSIONS OF THE DAY:
1. “Ocean” :: Goldfrapp
“I’ve lost the will to.
I’ve lost my way.
I’ve lost this ocean.
I poisoned me.”
This was my First Listen Favorite off of Goldfrapp’s Recent Release. The Song has a Butch Vig/Garbage feel to it, and even the Vocals remind me some of Shirley Manson. I Love the Emotions that weave through this Song, Lyrically and Sonically. The Song’s Electronic undertones are almost Hypnotic, to me.
2. “Spooky” (Minimix) :: New Order
“We could break every rule,
anytime we wanted to.”
There is such a 90’s feel to this Song. To me, it has 1993 all over it. There is a Rave/House Music sensibility to the Sound, and Lyrically this Song is so Early 90’s. Definitely High Energy and full of hope.
3. “The Chain” :: Fleetwood Mac
“And if you don’t love me now,
you will never love me again.”
Rumours will always be one of my all-time Favorite Albums, and without a doubt, my Favorite Fleetwood Mac Album. I can never really pick a Favorite Song off of it though, I Love them all so much. But, today I woke up with this one in my head, so if pressed to answer – for today only – I would say “The Chain” is my Favorite Rumours‘ Track.
4. “Rocket Man (I Think It’s Going to be a Long, Long Time)” :: Elton John
“I miss the earth so much,
I miss my wife.
It’s lonely out in space.”
This Song reminds me of David Bowie’s Song, “Space Oddity”. Another Major Tom Saga.
5. “Courting the Squall” :: Guy Garvey
“In the hills it’s an overcoat colder.
If big things,
life things are waves at your door.
The Voice of Elbow. I had no idea Guy Garvey had a Solo Album…now I have an entire Album to obsess over.
There it is – The last day of May’s Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day. Hope you all Pressed Play and Turned that Volume Way Up, and Enjoyed Today’s 5 Songs.
