1. The Eternal
2. New Dawn Fades
Changed my britpop view of the world forever. Outstanding x
2. 24 Hours
3. Heart & Soul
past 24 Hours. Soul destroying real untouchable beauty. Nothing comes anywhere near close. It's 1,2,3,4 & 5. Jeez. How anyone can leave it out of a "top 5" is beyond me.
Like your goals.
Heart & Soul
New Dawn Fades
Heart and Soul
Could have chosen almost any 5 out of about 20
She's Lost Control
Love Will Tear Us Apart
Leaders of Men
no love lost
Decades- what it's like to realise you are alone and lost!
Atmosphere- crystallised calm sadness...
Transmission - that vocal! and the band sound like they are a runaway train!
Love Will Tear Us Apart - those lyrics! - put to a pop hook that anyone would kill for!
No5 can change on a day-by-day basis. Possible She's Lost Control/New Dawn Fades or Day of the Lords.
First song I ever heard by them. Still remember where I was when I heard it. Played it on repeat all day before finally listening to the rest of the album. Unbelievable opener.
'Hey don't you know you were right?' The most...redemptive(?) song I think they ever did. Some of the best lyrics ever sung, against the most perfect match of music I can think of.
3/ She's Lost Control
Took a long time to grow on me and, at first, I couldn't abide the single version - Now I'm not sure which of the two versions is my favourite. Like almost all of their songs it sits unique in their catalogue and has been the template for hundreds of songs by other bands since. (She's Hearing Voices, anyone?)
4/ New Dawn Fades
Imagine you're sat in a bar, anywhere in the world, any time of the day, and this comes on. There's not a chance you could let the moment pass without noting it to yourself. Maybe humming along, maybe singing. Something else.
5/ Twenty Four Hours
As I said before, all their songs sit unique in their catalogue, but I guess some seem more unique than others. This is another. Epic. Claustrophobic. Defeated and Triumphant. Sounds like the end of the world.
