Lyric of the Day: “Slide”

Slide by Jake Bugg “I’ve got autumn leaves, and heartbreak dreams inside. You and me on this frozen sea, we slide.” Ever since the teenager hailing from a council estate in Nottingham burst onto the scene last year, we’ve heard countless times about his particularly young age.

Lyric of the Day: “Coming Of Age”

Coming Of Age by Tribes “I wanna stay up late in your room at night, don’t wanna watch my world grow old and die. I wanna get drunk, leave my brain outside.

Lyric of the Day: “Conventional Girl”

Conventional Girl by Kate Nash “I’m sick of being the bitch that you think I am” If you don’t know it yet, I’m a massive fanboy of Kate Nash. She’s just an absolute goddess, I adore her. Her lyrics can be as witty as any good sitcom on TV but also, incredibly poignant. What I… Read More ›

Lyric of the Day: “Taro”

Taro by Alt-J “Do not spray into eyes – I have sprayed you into my eyes.” The first time I heard this utterly spellbinding lyric that brings, what for many, was the album of 2012 to a close, I was wholly mesmerised.

Lyric of the Day: “Wall of Arms”

Wall of Arms by The Maccabees “Through these eyes, there’s no god above me, no devil below me. No purgatory, no pearly gates, the worms are what await me. It’s only me that can forgive me. And I have faith, oh I have faith. I have faith, oh I have faith in those who put… Read More ›

When it does you look over at your friends,… Read More ›

Lyric of the Day: “Sandblasted and Set Free”

Sandblasted and Set Free by Maxïmo Park “Sandblasted and set free, a trial run on paper. The earth is solid- you can dig it up, or you can pave it over.”   This would have to be my all-time favourite song by Maxïmo Park. They absolutely hit the nail on the head in every second of… Read More ›

Lyric of the Day: “Photobooth”

Photobooth by Friendly Fires “You and me in the photobooth, waiting for the flash, close the curtain urgently. You and me like young lovers do, timing for the kiss and close enough to hear you breathe. You and me in the photobooth, waiting for the flash, style with a cup of tea. You and me… Read More ›

Lyric of the Day: “Right Again”

Right Again by Eux Autres “When you’re out winning cases, don’t forget to check your laces. Someday, you’re tripping on your best intentions. Keep it number one, I’ll be watching, I’ll be at the ready. Keep it number one, I’ll be waiting when they break your heart.” The first time I heard this song, the… Read More ›
