Music is important but words are better. When I think of great lyricists I admire, a lot of them come from foreign climes: Matt Berninger (US), Nick Cave (Australia) and Craig Finn (US).
Let's name some amazing British lyricists and a song that best showcases their ability to string a sentence together. I'll go first with the obvious choice and make a playlist of the best suggestions.
"You have never been in love
Until you've seen the stars
Reflect in the reservoirs"
