misery monday part 26/26 - sweet and sour
Sometimes the saddest songs are the simplest. To end this series I've posted 5 tracks which in their brevity carry a canyon of regret
First up is Irish band Fat Lady Sings and But - with the killer "
I am Sincerely yours no more I quit . I know life is long but life's to short for this"
But - The Fat Lady Sings
Next up is September with David Sylvian sounding at his world weary best . The line "sipping coke playing games" always makes me smile ... the idea of a can of Coke featuring in a David Sylvian song is as out of place as if he sang "curry sauce on my chips"
September - David Sylvian
Depeche Mode not known for their sad songs , but they have a few and they are usually the ones Martin Gore chooses to sing himself
Sometimes - Depeche Mode
Elbow just seem to get better and better and this one comes from the break up lp Leaders of the Free World , a thing of fragile beauty
Puncture Repair - Elbow
Finally Born in a Storm. Not sad in itself but as the start of an lp that just makes me think of home and all that means "those hurricane days" always brings a shiver
Born in a Storm - Deacon Blue
5 songs , less than 10 mins of melancholy wonderment
So that ends the latest monday theme - new one starts next week ... just got to think of one now!
