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 anf 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 10 – NVM, Simple Creatures
Why This song?
I listen to Simple Creatures quite a lot and I tend to jump around as to what song is the ‘track of the moment’ however I have a real soft spot for this one. I really like the music composition on it and find it the perfect balance and everytime I listen to it I find something new to love.
Why do you love this song?
I love this song because the lyrics are so poetic, everytime I listen to it I find something else wonderful about them. I really like the metaphors and the way it is written in the verses, it is very clever and really makes this song stand out. Also the music composition makes it a very uplifting song in a weird sort of way. I adore this song so much and love the way it progresses throughout.
