I love music.. and I am a fan of lists, therefore I will now combine them (revolutionary idea, I know). For me to fall in love in a piece of music, the lyrics has to be great. So, I figured I would write my top 5 list on the most poetic songs I know about. I could probably go on forever, so I figured it would be best to narrow it down to 5. Also, they are in random order. I don't know how to have favourite songs, cause I feel like I would leave something out.. Anyway, feel free to leave a comment about your favorite songs :)
1. Sound of silence - Simon and Garfunkel
Now, Simon and Garfunkel are pure poetry, but this song seriously shakes me to the core. It always does.. I get this melancoly feeling by listening to it. I mean, "hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk with you again", "the words of the prophets are written on the subway wall", the sentences are amazing. If you haven't heard it yet, I suggest you go and by an album!
2. Time of your life - Green Day
I know there are a lot of opinions about Green Day, but this is an amazing song! Adore the fact that it's only Billie Joe, a guitar and a fiddle. This song will be played in my funeral, because I can't think of a better explanation on how I lived mye life.
3. Nightswimming - R.E.M
Ah, the beauty. I can barely explain this song, you simply have to hear it. The vocals are great (as always), and the lyrics are breathtaking.
4. Norwegian Wood - the Beatles
I don't know how poetic this song is, but it's one of my absolute favorites. It just shows how genious John Lennom was..
5. Angels Calling - Silver
This has been one of my favorite bands for years. I discovered them right about the same time as I discovered how important music is to me.. This is one of the first songs I heard from them, and I still love it just as much.
Honestly, I can't pick just a few songs, so I just wrote the first 5 I could think of. Maybe I'll write a similar list later on ;)
