My favourite Loveless song is always changing, I just can’t stay grounded to one song that I can claim as the one I like most. It’s like trying to pick your favourite child (sad simile, I know). I think, for now at least, it’s What You Want. It just mixes so much of what I love in the other ten songs; with how aggressive, but pretty it starts out, and the inaudible lyrics that are still somehow comforting.
But my second favourite would have to be Only Shallow.
…Maybe When You Sleep. Come In Alone would be pretty high up there, too.
UGH OKAY THEY’RE ALL MY FAVOURITE.
Darklands doesn’t get as much attention as it should.
Sidenote: VU’s Heroin?
Waking up to The Jesus & Mary Chain is the best way to wake up.
Sometimes I think about what life would be like without this album. But then I snap back into reality (Y’know, after crawling out of the fetal position).
I don’t know why it’s taken me so long, but I’ve finally started listening to early My Bloody Valentine.
Oh God, you guys, it’s so great. Listen to those ugly chords!
This song makes me want to rub up against pretty boys in the dark.
Fun Fact: This song holds the chord that inspired the name of this blog.
Have I just been exceptionally bitter the past few months, or was this year kind of weak, music-wise? I mean sure, there are dozens of albums you could throw at me to make me rethink what I just wrote, but I guess I was expecting some new, groundbreaking album. Something like Kid A, only not so much like it. Anyways, even if this year has left me feeling a little short-changed, I keep going back to this song. It may not be the most innovative song of the year, but goddammit, I love it.
What? I’m not going to not post a My Bloody Valentine song.
“We take drugs to make music to take drugs to”
The drums! Listen to the fucking drums!
