We've been enjoying the set this morning. My two-year-old, Wren, just requested Blur's Song 2, if you're able to fit it in. Best, --Christy -- "Woo-hoo!" "Song 2" lasts (You guessed it!) exactly 2 minutes and 2 seconds. -- There wasn't much thought put into this song. According to bassist Alex James, "We didn't think about it all." He added that he had a "really bad, sweaty" hangover the day they wrote the song. Producer Stephen Street revealed in an interview that "Damon [Albarn]'s guide vocal was pure babbling but it worked so well I suggested we went with it."

La Perla

Peru-born, Berlin-based artist Sofia Kourtesis says, "'La Perla' is about staring at the sea, It's the first thing I'll do when I return to Peru. My dad used to say staring at the sea is like meditation, it clears your head. This song is for him. It's hard for me to listen to 'La Perla' as it wrote it during a time I lost my dad to leukemia. This song is for him, descansa en paz papa". https://sofiakourtesis.bandcamp.com/album/fresia-magdalena

Should Be Gone
by The Feelies
(53 plays) | (0 fans)

"Set to an instantly hummable jangle, 'Should Be Gone' is a wry and resonant meditation on surviving long enough to remember a glorious history, while wondering if it was all truly as glorious as it seemed: "Bring up the past / like yesterday / try to recall / what was so great?"
