View Full Version : Best pop song of 2005 . . . so far

And for once lyrics that I can agree with :cool:

16 military wives, 32 softly focused, brightly colored eyes
staring at the natural tan of 32 gently clenching wrinkled little hands
17 company men, out of which only 12 will make it back again
sergeant sends a letter to 5 military wives as tears drip down from 10 little eyes

Cheer them on to their rivals
because America can and America can't say no
and America does if America says it's so
and the anchor person on TV goes "na na na na na na na na na"

15 celebrity minds, leading their 15 sorid, wretched, checkered lives
will they find the solution in time using their 15 pristine moderate liberal minds?
18 Academy chairs, out of which only 7 really even care
doling out a garland to 5 celebrity minds, they're humbly taken by surprise

14 cannibal kings, wondering blithely what the dinner bell will bring
15 celebrity minds, served on a leafy bed of 16 military wives

NP: SFA - "The Citizen's Band"

Yeah, the Decemberists are one of the best bands out there now. I don't love every song they do, but when they connect with me it's like no other. Very special. Just barely started listening to the new one but like the sound of it so far....

And the anchor person on tv
Goes la da da da da da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da da

I've been living with the new one for few weeks now, and yeah...what Davey said.
Mr Meloy paints pictures with words, and the pictures often have the ocean as a backdrop, and I love the ocean and miss it. If the pictures were poorly-executed, they would still be correctly themed; fortunately for me, they are wonderful, and so I win twice when I listen to Picaresque.

I haven't heard that Decemberists song yet, but I'm digging the lyrics. The song that's rocked my world most this year (so far) goes something like this:

Cellophane flowers never happened for me
Sleeping the day off
Watching the night fall
Covering nowhere
Filling my time-share

Thereís a woman in the mirror in a firey state
As she motions to me i start turning away
She's lifting her dress up
Trying to keep up

Oh you'd be surprised
How we race
While our lives
Erased

Another maroon on an everyday night
Thinking the morning looking for alright
Warming the blood flow
With poison I donít know why

Maybe the rain may stop following me
Dripping the colors
Running the daylight
Over the cloud burst
Hoping you donít burst

Right before my eyes
Erased
Our lives
Erased

We know we lost we lost we're nowhere now
We know we lost we lost we're nowhere now
Now we know we're lost and nowhere now

Maybe the rain will stop following me
With millions of colors reflected in daylight
Right on the kickdrum
Turning the sound of up...oh

Another maroon on an everyday night
I think in the morning I think I'll be alright
Watching the blood flow
no wonder I donít know why

there's a woman in the mirror in a firey state
she motions to me i start pulling away
she's lifting her dress up
all the way up!

oh don't look surprised
erased

our lives
erased

I don't know, I'm digging LCD Soundsystem, though I'm not sure which disk is the 2005 disk...

I don't know, I'm digging LCD Soundsystem, though I'm not sure which disk is the 2005 disk...

The first disc is the 2005 one; the second contains their previous single releases.

That album certainly contains my favorite pop of the year so far. I'm going to their show in NYC on Saturday; I will report.
