This Tuesday’s Tune: “Wake Me Up When September Ends  by Green Day

Wake Me Up When September Ends is my favourite from Green Day’s seminal album American Idiot. 2004 was a year of change for me. Wake Me Up When September Ends really felt like a manifestation of my melancholia. And also the video! I absolutely loved it! For a teen, nothing cuts deeper than a doomed love affair.

This Tuesday’s Tune: “Somewhere Only We Know  by Keane

The year was 2004. My parents had just moved to a new city and I to a new school. Everything was new. There were surprises at every corner. I was miserable. I missed my friends terribly. I was lonely and scared of the big new world. Somewhere Only We Know by Keane was receiving heavy air play around that time. It was a song that spoke to me. Tom Chaplin’s vocals gave a sort of a forlorn feel to the song. I still can’t listen to it without tearing up a little bit.

This Tuesday’s Tune: “Sewn  by The Feeling

There are certain songs that you immediately take a liking to. For me, Sewn was such a song.  The video is intriguing and the lyrics meant and still mean a lot to me.

“I can’t do the walk
I can’t do the talk
I can’t be your friend
Unless I pretend

So give me the song and I’ll sing it like I mean it
So give me the words and I’ll say them like I mean it…”

Lyrics by The Feeling

This Tuesday’s Tune: “No Surprises  by Radiohead

I have quite a few favourites by Radiohead. No Surprises is not my most favourite but the lyrics cut like a knife. ‘Cause they are so true. So very, very true.

“A heart that’s full up like a landfill

A job that slowly kills you

Bruises that won’t heal

You look so tired and unhappy…

I’ll take a quiet life

A handshake of carbon monoxide…

No alarms and no surprises (let me out of here)

No alarms and no surprises (let me out of here)

No alarms and no surprises please (let me out of here)”

Lyrics by Radiohead
