March 18th – Life Goes On…

18 03 2011

Those of you who follow this blog, will recall me taking part in the 30 day song challenge. I’m no longer going to continue doing that challenge. I don’t really want to repeat myself, so if you want to know more about why, then read yesterdays post.

It’s nice to be able to go back to blogging like before, and sharing a song I want to share with no limitations, instead of being bound by some guideline.

Noah & The...

Today, I’m bringing you a song by a band that I’ve recently discovered. I heard them on a TV advert with my parents, and we took a chance on buying the album, and I’m glad that we did. It’s undeniably catchy, and very good. It doesn’t try to be anything fancy, it’s just simple, classic songwriting and it works. It really does work. Funnily enough, both me and my mum made the same comparasion after hearing the album, in that they sound like the modern day Deacon Blue. Deacon Blue are fantastic (I do like them a lot) and probably unintentionally the capture the sound of that band, and the result is musical marvel. Q magazine described them as ‘your new favourite band’

The specific track that I’m going to feature is a single, and possibly best track on the album (which is saying something) Creatively titled L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. – The song lyrics are essentially in 3 parts. They sing about 2 people (one per verse) before ending with the final verse in which the song is sang from a 1st person viewpoint. Whilst all that may sound confusing, it flows really well, with the songs message being rooted in the chorus. The chorus is instantly memorable and it’s spelling of life goes on creates a superb hook, which sticks in your mind all day.

Today, I’d like to share with you Noah & The Whale with L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.

Isa likes brandy and the way it hits her lips
She’s a rock ‘n’ roll survivor with pendulum hips
She’s got deep brown eyes
That’ve seen it all

Working at a nightclub that was called The Avenue
The bar men used to call her “Little Lisa, Loney Tunes”
She went on almost anyone

From the hard time living ’til the Chelsea days
From when her hair was sweet blonde ’til the day it turned gray
She said :

[Chorus]
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You’ve got more than money and sense, my friend
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don’t have now will come back again
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way

Some people wear their history like a map on their face
And Joey was an artist just living out of case
But his best word was his letters home

His standard works of fiction about imaginary success
The chorus girls in neon were his closest things to friends
But to a writer, the truth is no big deal

From the hard time living to the sleepless nights
And the black and blue body from the weekend fights
He’d say

[Chorus]
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You’ve got more than money and sense, my friend
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don’t have now will come back again
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way

[Bridge]
On my last night on earth, I won’t look to the sky
Just breathe in the air and blink in the light
On my last night on earth, I’ll pay a high price
To have no regrets and be done with my life

[Chorus]
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You’ve got more than money and sense, my friend
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don’t have now will come back again
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way
(repeat)
