Song of the day

OK so I thought since there are a lot of music fans here we could run a "Song of the Day" thread same as the Pic of the Day, Youtube of the Day etc,

I'll start with a song I first heard on Zane Lowe's show on Radio 1 a couple of years ago, bought the album as soon as it came out, and then lost it in Exeter when I moved here

This was probably my favourite song of 2006.

Scott Matthews - Elusive



Favourite lyrics;

"Something says this ain't right, there's more to her than meets the eye..."

Re: Song of the day

Here is a contender for song of the day. Damien Rice and Ray Lamontagne singing to love somebody. Their voices sound like butter together.

One word, amazing.

(would have only been one word if it wasn't shorter than 10 letters....)

Absolutely top class mate.

There's a full Damien Rice concert divx you can download called 'four seasons', you should have a root around for that, maybe there's a torrent somewhere (whatever that is ).

Here we go. I must say I fancy taking double bass lessons after listening to this.

Re: Song of the day

One last one from me and then I'm away...partly for the great riff, partly for the great opening lyrics, and partly for the great video.

I love this song

Beck - Deadweight



On a highway, unpaved, going my way, you're so alone today, like a ghost town I've found there's no relief, no salt in the sea, is it true what they say, you can't behave, you gamble your soul away, measuring your dreams, oh this life seems like the gristle of loneliness....don't let the sun catch you crying...

I am not worthy to make posts in this thread.

A better role for me is to make sure that the kitchen is not on fire
