Beautiful Song |
By simply reading the lyrics tears come down your face, it's a beautiful beautiful song, the lyrics are great and the music itself fits perfectly with the lyrics. I find it surprising that it is such an "unknown" Keane song, because it is definately one of the most beautiful ones. The theme of friendship is incredibly well expressed in this song. A Keane masterpiece as usual.
A Pounding Classic |
Some Keane tracks are growers, some will never get there. But, for me, this was a classic the moment I heard it. A constant, simple pulse to it and the piano, a signature of Tom and the boys, but this one hit me hard instantly. A lovely tune about friendship at the right time and a hope that it continues, something I think we can all relate to. They have a knack of picking a subject that is commonplace and making it into a wonderfully crafted song. This is one of the best, right up there with the likes of "Somewhere Only We Know" and "Bedshaped". Listen to it over and over and let it wash over you, the piano will send shivers up your spine.
