Song of the Day - Day 713

Today's song is...

Someone Keeps Moving My Chair

Perfect example of a fantastic song that I constantly forget about. Like if you asked me to name all the songs on Flood, this is one of the ones I would struggle to come up with on the spot. And yet it is so good. I love the syncopated way Linnell delivers the chorus. And I only just noticed, listening to it now, what a nice guitar part it has. Songs like this are excellent proof that you can write a good song about anything. You aren't limited to the standard themes of love song, breakup song, story song, dance song, etc. If you've got a good beat and a catchy melody and you stick a bunch of words together that sound nice, that really can be all you need.

  1. I can't think of Flood without thinking of this song and "We Want a Rock" - my absolute favorites off the album and instant feel-good songs for me. :)
