Day #7: "Already" by Nik Kershaw

And to play us out at the end of this week's worth of ditties, here's what I think is a barely known song by the master craftsman. Nik Kershaw has been quietly writing material for years since he faded from 1980s fame. I think he's improved with age.

Wistful. Poignant. Yet Hopeful.

Already by Nik Kershaw on Spotify

Old YouTube link (defunct):-



I've blogged my reflexions on this tune before, here: Nik Kershaw - Already

Day #6: "Where We're Going We Don't Need Roads" by The Stereophones.

I found this song by accident. It was a happy accident.

Day #5: "Control" by Pause.

This song speaks plaintively from the bomb site of a man's mind.

Day #4: "Bend and Break" by Keane.

Desperate yet full of humanity. This YouTube rendering has its own interesting poignancy.




When you, when you forget your name
When old faces all look the same
Meet me in the morning when you wake up
Meet me in the morning then you'll wake up
If only I don't bend and break
I'll meet you on the other side
I'll meet you in the light
If only I don't suffocate
I'll meet you in the morning when you wake

Bitter and hardened heart
Aching waiting for life to start
Meet me in the morning when you wake up
Meet me in the morning then you'll wake up

If only I don't bend and break
I'll meet you on the other side
I'll meet you in the light
If only I don't suffocate
I'll meet you in the morning when you wake

If only I don't bend and break
I'll meet you on the other side
I'll meet you in the light
If only I don't suffocate
I'll meet you in the morning when you wake

I'll meet you on the other side
I'll meet you in the light
If only I don't suffocate
I'll meet you in the morning when you wake

Day #3: "Up the Wolves" by the Mountain Goats.

This song featured on the end credits of a terrific episode of The Walking Dead, after which the band must have experienced a spike in interest. I would have been one of the spikers.
