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 26 – Not In This World, Kids In Glass Houses
Why This song?
I can’t remember how I came across this song originally but it ended up being a firm favourite straight from the first time I heard it. Whilst I liked a few of this bands music before, this song made me fall in love with them and the album this is off is amazing.
Why do you love this song?
I just love the way the guitars are played in this song, especially in the chorus it is just so powerful and the way that it compliments the singing just creates a lump in my throat and when the chorus drops I always have the same thought ‘I flipping love this song’. It is a song that creates that bitter sweet emotion I have mentioned a lot this month and it is yet another song you have to listen to loudly in headphones to truly appreciate it. I also adore the lyrics to this song as well and how they are sung, it really is wonderful.
