Sunday Best (Week 10)

Yes, yes, I know..it’s Monday, and I’m posting the “Sunday Best.” Well my internet at home was down all last night, so that’s the reason for the delay. Maybe I should go to calling it another name, so I don’t really have to post it on Sunday. Anyway, just a thought. Here are this weeks’ songs!

I love anything that Jimmy Gnecco is involved with. This is a song that he did with an ex-Ah-ha member, Paul Waaktaar’s newest project, Savoy. I honestly haven’t given much attention to the Savoy project as a whole, but this song is really powerful and shows another dimension of Jimmy’s musical talents, as this is way out of the norm for him. This is a great tune.

The Breakers Featuring Jimmy Gnecco of Ours

I can still recall the time
Sitting in the sand and watching breakers
As they roll upon the shore
You just walked right up to me
Having asked around you had no takers
To take you far away from me
Then I come along to hold your hand
Everything is up and it’s alright
Cause I feel the engine pulling
The storms are in days’ light
Everything is down is it’s okay
Because I feel the engine humming
And it’s taking us away
I’ve been seeing you around
Sitting in the sand and watching breakers
As they roll upon the shore
You always had your friends around
Something you should know, I think they’re fakers
I’m the only one you need
Here I come along to hold your hand
Everything is off, but that’s just fine
Cause I see the engine running
Down the straight white line
Everything goes wrong, but that’s alright
Cause I hear the engine running
As it penetrates the night
Where do we go from here?
Stepping into thin air
How do we work it out?
Where do we check our doubts?
Everything is up and it’s alright
Cause I feel the engine pulling
I stop a new days’ light
Everything is down is it’s okay
Because I feel the engine humming
And it’s taking us away
But that’s just fine
Cause I see the engine running
Down the straight white line
Everything goes wrong, but that’s alright
Cause I hear the engine running
As it penetrates the night

I remember the first time I ever heard Failure I was watching tv and I heard “Stuck On You” as the background music of something. I was instantly interested in what I was hearing, and during this time, the internet was in its infancy, so it took me awhile to actually find out what song it was. When I finally found it, and purchased Fantastic Planet, I quickly realized I had purchased a really solid record. The album as a whole is still one of my favorites to date, but this song will always stand out to me.

Stuck On You

I heard you driving in my car
Then in a frozen bar
I claimed I didn’t care for you
But your verse got trapped inside my head
Over and over again
You played yourself to death in me

I thought I’d drop you easily
But that was not to be
You burrowed like a summer tic
So you invade my sleep and confuse my dreams
Turn my nights to sleepless itch

Stuck on you till the end of time
I’m too tired to fight your rhyme
Stuck on you till the end of time
You’ve got me paralyzed

Holding on the telephone
I hear your midrange moan
You’re everywhere inside my room
Even when I’m alone, I hear your mellow drone
You’re everywhere inside of me

Stuck on you till the end of time
I’m too tired to fight your rhyme
Stuck on you till the end of time
You’ve got me trapped inside

I can’t escape your incessant whine
When you beam it out all across the sky
No I can’t escape your insipid rhyme
When you shoot it deep
Straight into my mind
