Forever And A Day
It has often been said that French is the language of love … not being experts we couldn’t possibly comment, but there is one thing we do know for certain; the language of love songs is clearly psychopathy.
It’s easy to mock the people who chose to have “Every Breath You Take” played at their wedding for being incredibly thick (and, to be fair, they are), but it’s not entirely their fault. Over the last sixty years or so the lyrics of your basic pop love song have evolved to the point where it’s hard to tell the difference between them and the manifesto of a serial killer.
That heart-felt declarations of undying devotion, promises of undivided, eternal attention, and endless missives as to the hollow emptiness of an existence without the object of one’s desire can so easily be mistaken for threats things are going to “get dark” if advances are rejected fully explains how so many fail to tell the difference between romance and stalking (even when Sting spells it out for them).
So, as we prepare the boy band-style harmonies and the inevitable key change why don’t you scroll down the page and grab an MP3 that will doubtless one day accompany the service to mark your holy union to some poor demented sod with little to no understanding of lyrical subtext. If you’re feeling particularly loved-up you could also download “The Love E.P” which features this song along with three other fantastic tracks! After that you’ll naturally want to go and subscribe to our YouTube channel as well!
That’s right, precious …
