In no particular order, Here’s our Top 5 lyrical compositions
Conversation 16- The National
Matt Berninger’s abstract portraits of middle american life bring to mind sentiments most of us don’t want to admit we relate to. This song’s chorus puts it all in perspective.
Angry Candy – Autolux
So you missed the getaway
and you crashed the stolen plane
now everyone can say,
…love that shit!
Reel Around the Fountain – The Smiths
There is some speculation as to the actual meaning of this song but it has a personal meaning for us and the lyrics are undeniably great.
Chelsea Hotel no.2 – Leonard Cohen
Cohen takes a very specific and personal scenario and renders it completely relatable for anyone who has lost a love.
+Perfect Day – Lou Reed
The lines contradict each other and yet they beautifully illustrate the complicated paradox of human relationships.
