Song of the Day: We Come One by Faithless

Heya everyone!

I’m very sorry for the prolonged silence, I found myself unexpectedly busy with no time to prepare posts. Anyway, I’m back with my Song of the Day which is We Come One by Faithless. (more…)

Song of the Day: Asleep by The Smiths

Now, I’m not a massive fan of The Smiths, if their music comes on I listen, but I haven’t rifled through their back catalogue. As such I haven’t heard a song of theirs as soft and mesmerizing as Asleep. (more…)

Song of the Day: Drive by Incubus

Okay okay. So this has a lot to do with nostalgia.

Do you guys remember that game Donkey Konga? It basically had the same premise as the dance mat except you had bongos and you had to hit and clap along according to the notes on the screen. Well my absolute favourite to play on that was William Tell Overture but Drive, by Incubus was up there too (I think it was on the second game). (more…)

Song of the Day: Stay by Shakespeare’s Sister

Stay is another example of catchy songs that might actually be a tad depressing. I think the hook actually comes with the amazing vocal performance. This track by Shakespeare’s Sister has been a favourite for a very long time, so naturally I was peeved when Cher Lloyd butchered it on the X Factor. (more…)

Song of the Day: Ghosts by The Presets

Song of the Day: Wires by Athlete

It’s a slow but steady song and probably the best one that Athlete have ever created. Wires is an emotional track and it builds up to a crescendo towards the end before shedding all the layers of instruments before picking them up again, I love the way this is done, it makes it seem like the music is wavering as if it has been burdened by emotion.

Song of the Day: Comforting Sounds by Birdy

This is a cover but I actually prefer Birdy’s version of Comforting Sounds.

It’s a beautiful song and her voice suits it so perfectly, especially when it goes low. However, it’ a track that doesn’t really rely on vocals, they just introduce it. They’re there, and linger hauntingly for a few minutes before fading away and surrendering to the music. (more…)
