Tuesday Tunes: A Long December.

A short series of shorter posts for Tuesdays in July, on songs I love with lyrics that never fail to make me smile.

Across A WireThe song is from the Crows’ second album, Recovering The Satellites, but I prefer the recording on the live album, Across A Wire. This is another of my very favourite songs, from a band that I went through a phase of being heavily into. I still enjoy their music — it’s nice, undemanding rock that even so has some depth in the writing.

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that its all a lot of oysters, but no pearls.
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl.

And you’ve just got to love the piano. No frills, just goodness.
