So, after coming perilously close to being disgusted with the repeat-play on my iPod, I’m back to Lala.com to find some new music or, if nothing else, listen to some music I know I like but don’t own. This morning I started thinking about specific songs that embodied…well…themselves…perfectly. Does that make sense?
Less often, there are songs that seem to come together in one great piece to hand over a feeling. Patrick Watson’s Beijing, which I mentioned in an earlier post, does this. Today in my listening, I decided that Two by The Antlers also does this.
What are your thoughts? What do you consider total-package songs? Universally? Personally?
*A personal example would be Better Than Ezra. While this isn’t like the Arcade Fire, because I believe the scope of this is smaller, BTE completely embodies college to me. That’s it. BTE = Jennifer’s four (and a half) years at Samford University.
