I think I am going to continue to do music mondays. I enjoy it. You may have noticed a trend in my music monday postings. I want to bring to you attention artists and songs you probably have not heard.
My memories of this song date back to the early nineties when a then girlfriend lent me the cassette tape. I really liked Underworld then. They seemed to harken back to New Wave which I am a big fan again. Years later, maybe the 2000s, I came across another band called Underworld. They were an electronic band. Turns out it was the same band.
I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it. Great beat and mesmerizing vocals.
Big in the UK, I first encountered Elbow in the soundtrack for an episode of Topgear. I sense fell in love with most of the bands work.
I first heard this song in the credits for the video game Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
If you follow me on twitter you know I love to quote the Max Payne games:
“Vlad was right. There are no choices. Nothing but a straight line. The illusion comes afterwards, when you ask ‘Why me?’ and ‘What if?’ when you look back; see the branches, like a pruned bonsai tree, or a forked lightning.
If you had done something differently, it wouldn’t be you – it would be someone else looking back, asking a different set of questions.”
