I haven’t written for a few days, mostly because I spent the weekend catching up on laundry, reading, and going out to dinner with a friend. It was relaxing, but not very productive in terms of blogging.
Anyway, for today’s Music Monday post, I wanted to share one of my favorite albums. I mentioned it a while ago when I listed the 20 albums I couldn’t live without, but I never discussed it in any detail.
The album? Antics by Interpol.
I started listening to Interpol my senior year of college after a friend of mine let me borrow this album. I was instantly hooked. The songs are a perfect blend of haunting, dark, and poppy … A combination that sounds as though it wouldn’t work, but, in this case, works surprisingly well.
Antics is not only a great album … It’s an album that brings me back to a certain time in my life, reminding me of both the good and the bad moments I experienced between the ages of 21 and 22. Although I still listen to this album from beginning to end on a regular basis, those were the years that this album acted as part of the soundtrack to my life.
As with my previous posts that focused on a specific album, I’ll be listing out my personal favorite tracks from Antics. I’ll also be sharing my favorite lines from each of these songs.
* Public Pervert
Personal Favorite Line(s): Perhaps heart strings resuscitate the fading sounds of your life
Personal Favorite Line(s): It’s way too late to be this locked inside ourselves/The trouble is that you’re in love with someone else/It should be me
* Song Seven (This is found on the extended/special edition version.)
Personal Favorite Line(s): You can’t sit up/Yeah, you fell too fast/You come at the right time/Yeah, you come too fast
* A Time To Be So Small
Personal Favorite Line(s): He might succumb to what you haven’t seen/He has a keen eye for what you used to be
Personal Favorite Line(s): Oh, all your history’s like fire from a busted gun
I know this is a pretty well-known album, but if you’ve never listened to Interpol, this is a great place to start.
