Just got up from bed as I can't sleep in this heat. So this was really my favorite song yesterday. Probably still is today. Suprisingly interesting '82 post-punk... or whatever you'd like to call it. Never reissued.  Played the D-side four times in a row. It starts with this (and ends with an equally long instrumental): 


Like early Can as an 80's new wave or dark wave band? 

The ice caps are melting
All the world is drowning
The ice caps are melting
The tide is rushing in
All the world is drowning
To wash away the sin

Vangelis' "Blade Runner Blues", but if you insist on the presence of the lyrics, I would have to say ... Oh! PG's "Intruder"! Somewhat corny lyrics, but the music, man ... you just can't pin it down.

^ A flashback: that was mine two years back when I moved to the apartment I still live in. Boy, was I so into Drake and ADII. I still have those mysterious chords written down, but they are buried somewhere where they shouldn't be.

Damn it! I should have said The Bee Gees' "Bury Me Down by the River" (for an actual song with the lyrics), but the OP said "no excessive thinking" or something like that. I must have had quite a few songs go through my head yesterday.

Listened to that today!!
But since I've only heard the Suffocating The Bloom album ONCE (shameful, I know) listening to that now. Seriously though, that's the best album from the 90's to the present! Every song is so good... My favorite song today is Memoirs From Between I guess!

You can think excessively if you want - it's just not required. Smile

Anyway, I meant for this to be a daily kind of thread, so you can change your mind as often as you want.  I noticed that every day there's a certain song that hits me in just the right way, and this thread is meant to highlight those little moments.

Enjoying everyone's responses so far!

Raindrops keep falling on my head, because it was used in Spy Hard, which I watched recently.
