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 22 – Walk Away, Blue
Why This song?
When I was a kid, I was a huge fan of Blue and used to adore their albums, I would listen to them on constant repeat on my CD player. For a really long time (and even today) I used to use some of their slower songs to fall asleep to and this was a song that I used alot. I know that sounds bad but it is one of those songs I love waking up to. The progression of this song is wonderful and I love the last part so much.
Why do you love this song?
I really love the music composition for this song, I really enjoy this track as it is really different to a lot of the songs released by Blue and I think that is why I have always adored it. I like the fact that music develops over time and when it breaks down at the end it brings all the song together. The reason the last part of the song works so well is that that you have Lee Ryan singing over the top and that is what makes it so effective.
