Every year in February I try to think of new things that I can discuss around the theme of love because let’s not be ignorant, it is that month AND it is a leap year – that’s meant to be special right?! Last year we celebrated the fact that the best things comes in twos and looked at the word of Twoprov (not as couples but the way the comedy format is stealing and owning the stage), we have also looked at the comedy film and comedy as a whole! This year we head to the world of music.
Some of the songs I love are not necessarily my favourite songs, instead I find this is a sort of completely different topic all on it’s own. A song that I really love must do a few things to me – firstly make me smile because of the experience of listening to it whilst also making me feel a lump in my throat. All of these songs that I talk about over the next 29 days are songs I really do love and adore and I think their music construction, lyrics and song as a whole are wonderful.
At the start of this paragraph I said that these songs may not be my favourites – well that is true, whilst some may be ones that are, there are ones that are not but that does not mean I truly respect them as songs and these songs make me happy and sad at the same time I know they are in a completely different category and that is what the difference is.
Day 3 – Ready To Go (Get Me Out of My Mind) , Panic! At The Disco
Why This song?
This song is not my ultimate favourite song of Panic! (that is This is Gospel) but is one that I love, it is uplifting and I love the musical melody of this tune. I have liked this song for a very long time, it is funny though because it is a song that I tend to forget about as well. This song has a very clever music video and it is just so uplifting.
Why do you love this song?
I love this song for so many reasons – the first is that only Panic could create a song this complex in it’s structure and stylings. It is so unique and that is why I adore it, also I really love the lyrics and the way that they intertwine to the music melody. It is such a feel good song and that is what I love about it – the lyrics may not be as complex as some of their other catalogues but it is one that you could imagine easily being placed in a musical or something. Also i love the music video, it is so clever.
