LCD Soundsystem - Someone Great
Sound: Electronic, Indie, Dance Punk? (thats a thing?)
I am not a lyrics man. I can listen to a song 100 times and still never know the words. This weakness of mine allows me to completely rediscover music I love after 5 years of continually listening to it.
Which brings us to “Someone Great.”
I always thought it was about a girl. A break up with a dumb girl. (And shit, that still might be true?) That was then. Now, I think its about something completely different (death) and OH MAN is this song incredible. Holy shit, its good. Like, hit the nail on the fucking head, genius level song writing ish.
I am sure we have all heard this song before. Possibly a lot. But for me and where I am at in life, this is brand new song. And I can’t stop listening.
