Playing tracks by
Echo Lake, Jewellers, Savages, Voxhaul Broadcast, Seasfire and more.
During this show, I played a song that led me to let loose with a long-held opinion: lyrics don't matter all that much to me. My producer Rachael disagreed and threw the question out to the Twitterverse.
Now, it depends on the type of song it is. If it's a ballad or a particularly emotive tune then, yeah, meaningful lyrics are a big plus. But if it's a rocker or a dance song, I kinda don't care. Sure, I love to sing at the top of my lungs but chances are I'll like "Song 2" whether he's feelin' heavy metal or not based on the riff alone, as with the song above. To me, they're just words that get me from A to B whether this monkey's gone to heaven or some chick's got a tattooed tit say number thirteen.
So - this week's show features premieres from me by SAVAGES, FUNERALS, VOXHAUL BROADCAST, MAX AND GABRIELLE, SEASFIRE, STRATHE, THE NARROWS, ARÊTES, EMBERS, and SUMMER CAMP. And I'm not telling you which song has the lyrics I'm referring to. You'll just have to listen and find out.
