Be Fine by Legume
Played a show with these guys last week and heard this song for the first time. A breezy, feel good song perfect for driving on a sunny day with the windows down.
Ceremony by New Order
An upbeat track shrouded in lyrical misery by the original kings of dance music. Play this one at my funeral.
Candlestick by Signature Mistakes
A beautifully written song about putting everything into your passion and lamenting on whether or not it was worth it. I can relate to this song in so many ways. I still cry every time.
Something You’d Say by Mover Shaker
Impeccable Beatles-esque pop songwriting under the guise of layers of reverb and intricate musicianship. One of my all time favorites
Mystery Of Love by Sufjan Stevens
I still haven’t seen the movie this was written for (though I want to) but this is one of the most flawless songs ever written. Such a tender, fragile piece that leaves me heartbroken with every listen.
