My Song Recommendations

A song recommendation every day (be warned, they will probably all be weird folky songs that no one will have heard of or want to bother with.) Hozier, Sara Bareilles, Hudson Taylor, Passenger, Ben Howard, Bear's Den, Vance Joy will all probably be featured quite heavily.

Basically this is just my response to how much I love certain songs and writers at the moment and how I listen to something and get that "weird evangelical zeal, and become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans [hear it]".

Enjoy!

15. Day 14 - One Day Like This

 

One Day Like This by Elbow:

Drinking in the morning sun
Blinking in the morning sun
Shaking off a heavy one
Yeah, heavy like a loaded gun

What made me behave that way?
Using words I never say
I can only think it must be love
Oh anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

Someone tell me how I feel
It's silly wrong, but vivid right
Oh, kiss me like a final meal
Yeah, kiss me like we die tonight

'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with you half awake
Stumbling over what to say
Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

When my face is chamois creased
If you think I wink, I did
Laugh politely at repeats
Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin

'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with you half awake
Stumbling over what to say
Well, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

So throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right for life

Throw those curtains wide
'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
One day like this a year would see me right
And only now I see the light
Throw those curtains wide
'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
One day like this a year would see me right
And only now I see the light

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

 

Well today's song is a bit of a feel-good factor song for everyone waking up on a beautiful (well, it's pretty grey here actually) Saturday morning and embracing the day. It's kind of about falling in love but it's also just a celebration of the moment and what we've got so throw those curtains wide and welcome in the day.

For such a positive song it has a bit of an opposite emotional effect on me as this is a song I used to listen to a lot when my brother was really ill so it brings back a lot of bad memories as well as good ones... but I'm really pleased that it hasn't tainted my ultimate love for the song. It's a great one to listen to while driving somewhere.

It is taken from Elbow's fourth album 'The Seldom Seen Kid' which is kind of old now but you can probably still get hold of it from somewhere... Enjoy!
