Music Monday: Wednesday’s Heart-Swelling Edition

February 10, 2010

so, i’ve never attempted to declare my music taste as anything but a little wonky. sometimes i like some pretty bitchin’ stuff, other times, my taste is entirely questionable and totally inappropriate. oh well.

anyhow, whilst watching television, i heard this Coldplay (shut up) song and remembered how several years ago, i listened to it almost religiously. for what reason, i cannot really say, except that there’s something about it that makes my heart swell. i think it’s the orchestral quality towards the end.

then i was reminded of the way that Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Boxer” makes me feel. same heart swelling. it’s that whole wall of sound thing, i think.

at the end of Derek and the Dominoes’ “Layla,” there is some serious instrumental stuff going on that makes me want to weep for joy.

oddly enough, Does It Offend You, Yeah? makes a song that makes my heart swell to proportions not unlike “The Boxer.”

and although i’ve posted it before, Crystal Castles’ makes exactly one song that i really like. and for some reason, it’s the same sort of heart swelling evocation.

don’t judge me. i’ve been trapped inside since Friday. i can’t be held responsible for anything i do anymore.
