It just makes me sleepy and happy. At least, Illinois[e] does.
It just makes me sleepy and happy. At least, Illinois[e] does.I would say it depends on what I'm listening to. On that album, "John Wayne Gacy" makes me very sad. "Chicago," "The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts," and "Casimir Pulaski Day" (oddly, given the content), invoke sleepy happiness. "...Wasp of the Palisades..." is a kind of nervy nostalgic sadness that is both uncomfortable and relaxing.Michigan is distinctly not as happy as Illinois, if I recall correctly.
John Wayne Gacy's sad, but it's still an awesome song.
Didn't say it wasn't. It's sad, but one of my favorites. Chicago, Predatory Wasp, CPD, and Jacksonville are other favorites. I also really like the composition of "...Zombies!"
Tunak Tunak Tun.
I was once a big fan of Tunak Tunak Tun, but then I heard Benny Lava and never went back.
The Man Of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts.
When I first listen to a song I don't hear the lyrics. If the chorus is clear I'll get the gist of it, but otherwise my first impression of a song comes almost entirely from the music. When I first heard Jamie T I imagined being in an old bar in the hart of London with a good friend, and drowning my woes after my dog died and my girlfriend left me. Upon further listening it turns out that my first impression was more or lessspot on. That's significant, of course, because I've never had a girlfriend, been to London, or been drinking in a bar, and I was 12 last time my dog died. This guy isgood.
