Today is a Tuesday that feels like a Monday because of yesterday’s Bank Holiday. I feel a bit like I’m playing catch-up at work, and here at Lyriquediscorde. That said, I’m trying to just enjoy the day, the shorter week, and breathe my way through an overwhelming “To-Do” List. I have so many things on that list for today, and there are so many things I’d like to do that aren’t even on the list. Before I start to spin out from it all I’m going to Press Play and Turn Up the Volume to Today’s Top 5 Music Obsessions. Wanna join me?
Song 1 is The Charlatans’ “Hey Sunrise“. I’m a huge fan of their 2017 Album, Different Days, most especially this Song/the Album’s Opening Track. The Song feels like a sunrise, like the start of a new day, like second chances and deep intakes of breath. Next up is Kirsty MacColl’s “Walking Down Madison”, from her 1991 Album, Electric Landlady. I sometimes forget about Kirsty’s Music, and then when I stumble on it again (like this morning via Spotify’s Discover Weekly Playlist) I remember how much I enjoy her. Track 3 is one of my Favorites from The Psychedelic Furs, “Love My Way”. When I hear this Song I think of High School dances in church basements, of a boy I once loved who used to play this on acoustic guitar and sing it to me through the phone lines late at night, and of John Hughes Films, even though I’m not sure this Song was ever in one. “Kiss Them For Me” by Siouxsie And The Banshees is Song 4. This is one of those “Go-To” Songs that always make me smile, and of course, sing-a-long. Last, but not least, is Kate Bush’s Song “Cloudbusting”. I love this Video so much. Did you know it was conceived by Kate and Filmmaker Terry Gilliam? The two of them wanted to make a Short Film from the Song.
Alright, so are you ready to Press Play and give these 5 Songs a Listen? What Songs are you Obsessing over on this Tuesday that feels like a Monday Day?
