Dear Song of the dayers,
I hope you are all jamming to the 300 days of Song of the day Playlist.
In the meanwhile, back to our usual song of the day, and back to the Paleo lineup.
As mentioned one of the bands featured is Bloc Party. One of my favourite bands.
Just before they took a break I stayed an extra two days in Greece and went solo to one of their concerts to be able to see them in the flesh (and it was well worth it). So you can’t imagine how delighted I am to hear that after a 3 years they have reunited (hopefully Kele has realized he is nothing without his entourage). Us fans are all waiting excitingly for their new album this year and I’m sure it will be as fantastic as the last.
In the meantime there are way way too many great songs to keep you busy with.
Of course this is not their first feature on Song of the day. I have already tried to get you into them with the popular Flux, Helicopter and the Minotaur remix of Tulips.
But now it’s time to break away from the popular and give you (possibly) my favourite.
Kreuzberg – the song is inspired by the famous part of Berlin and its symbolism for division and war and how this is a metaphor for how a person is reflecting on the difference between intimacy and love and the war between the two. (or at least that’s what I think)
there is a wall that runs right through me, just like the city I will never be joined
Enjoy the rest of A weekend in the City – the album is full of gems (Sunday is another favourite). Not to mention the entire Intimacy Album (including the remixes). Oh wait and Silent Alarm. Just listen to it all.
I, I have decided, at 25, something must change.
