Day 73 of 365 Days of Song

Day 73- Monaco – What Do You Want From Me?

A relatively unknown gem from the Britpop era.

Give me something. I can rely on.
Far away from. The life that I once knew.
But what does it matter. that’s all I have to say.
And I can’t imagine.

Day 71 of 365 Days of Song

Day 71 – Nik Kershaw – Wouldn’t It Be Good

I adore this song. It proves that the 80s did have some decent pop tunes.

Wouldn’t it be good to be in your shoes
Even if it was for just one day
Wouldn’t it be good if we could wish ourselves away

Wouldn’t it be good to be on your side
The grass is always greener over there
Wouldn’t it be good if we could live without a care

Day 70 of 365 Days of Song

Day 70 – New Order – Regret

One of my most favourite songs. Reminds me of  a drunken sing-a-long [to this] with my younger brother and his ex many years ago. Fab video too – filmed on the Baywatch set.

‘I would like a place I could call my own

Have a conversation on the telephone

Wake up every day that would be a start

I would not complain of my wounded heart’

Day 69 of 365 Days of Song

Day 69 – Alexisonfire – Rough Hands

My favourite Alexis song. Been stuck in my head all day.

One day my hands were too soft
One day she said, “I’m tired”
One day her clothes were on my floor
One day, empty bottles

Well, I’m not saying she’s my last
I’m just saying that she could have been
It doesn’t matter how rough these hands get
It doesn’t matter ’cause I’m not her man

Day 68 – Electronic – Getting Away With It

Another song in the theme of New Order members’ other bands. This time it is Bernard Sumner’s 90’s band Electronic, with a song collaboration with Pet Shop Boys. Great song that gets overlooked.

I hate that mirror, it makes me feel so worthless
I’m an original sinner but when I’m with you
I couldn’t care less
I’ve been getting away with it all my life
(Getting away with it)
All my life
(Getting away)

Day 66 of 365 Days of Song

Day 66- The Vines – Get Free

Listened to their 1st album ‘Highly Evolved’ yesterday for the 1st time in years. Forgotten how good it is, and still very much underrated.

I’m gonna get free
I’m gonna get free
I’m gonna get free
Ride into the sun
She never loved me
She never loved me
She never loved me
Why should anyone?

Day 65 of 365 Days of Song

Day 65 – Apartment – Everyone Says I’m Paranoid

 

A song I first heard on the radio, about 10 years ago in uni (during my listening to Joy Division and Interpol every single day phase). I thought it was an unheard JD song at the time. Good tune.

Everyone says I’m paranoid
on this island
Everyones says I’m paranoid
on this island

It’s only life
sending trought time

 

Day 64 of 365 Days of Song

Day 64 – The Cranberries – I’m Still Remembering

I love this band, massively! My only regret is that I never got to see them live. I dream of being in the front row of an unplugged gig like in the video and hearing this song played…if only!

They say the cream’ll always rise to the top
They say that good people are always first to drop
What of Kurt Cobain will his presence still remain?
Remember J.F.K. ever saintly in a way

Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
I say, where are you now?
