30 Day Song Challenge, Day 1: Favourite Song
Instead of overthinking this one, I just went with the first song that popped into my head. Which turned out to be a fairly depressing tune from a Scottish supergroup masterminded by the dude from Snow Patrol — I know, I’m a little surprised, too. But everything about the song works for me, from Aidan Moffat’s thick brogue to the heartsick lyrics to the quiet ooh-ing and that amazing organ tone in the chorus. Somehow, its particular tone of self-deprecating wallow fits better and better with age.
