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!

19. Day 18 - I forget Where We Were

 

I Forget Where We Were by Ben Howard:

Oh, hey,
I wasn't listening
I was watching Syria blinded by the sunshine strip
You, you were in the kitchen
Oh, your mariner’s mouth the wounded with the wounder's whip

And that's how summer passed oh,
The great divide and range of green green grass
Oh, maybe it was peace at last, who knew

Hello love, my invincible friend
Hello love, the thistle and the burr
Hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were

Oh, hey,
I wasn't listening,
I was stung by all of us, the blind leading out the bored
And as per usual,
You were skipping and laughing eyes at the bedroom door

Don't take it so seriously, no
Only time is ours, the rest we'll just wait and see
Maybe you're right, babe, maybe

Oh, no, and that's how summer passed
Oh, your, great divide and range of green green grass
And, oh, maybe I hold on fast to you

Hello love, my invincible friend
Hello love, the thistle and the burr
Hello love, for you I have so many words
But I, I forget where we were

I, I forget where we were
I forget where we were
I forget where we were,

Oh, no, and that's how summer passed
Oh, your, great divide
And range of green green grass
Oh, maybe it was peace at last, who knew

 

I know that this song is the stereotypically known and like song of the album (the one that 'true fans' will get all snooty over and say 'this is rubbish; people only like it because it's popular') but I genuinely do love it. It was one of the first Ben Howard songs I heard and although - like Hozier yesterday - I find it really difficult to differentiate preferences as all his music is mind-blowing, this particular piece gets me every time. It is stunning.

It's from Ben's album 'I Forget Where We Were' and I beg you to go listen to the whole thing!
