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 15 – Tonight You’re Perfect, New Politics
Why This song?
I remember the exact time I first heard this song – it was a promo for Jimmy Fallon chat show – it was when he had just changed to replace Jay Leno, I can’t remember if it was the first season but I remember the promo because that is the first time I heard this song. I didn’t know who sung it, I didn’t care, i just had to find out as it was wonderful and I loved it right from the start and have ever since.
Why do you love this song?
I love the way the song starts in a way that you can expect the drop is going to happen and when it does it is everything you want it to be. Around the time I heard it, there was no other song like this and I became addicted to it, I find it such an addictive song and also such a feel good song everytime I hear the musical interlude after the chorus I just want to jump about like crazy.
