The Lofa Below: Valentine’s Day Mixtape – Day.Six

Bloc Party – So Here We Are

There’s very few albums that have moved me the way that Bloc Party’s “Silent Alarm” has.

This song in particular, for a hot moment, was the only song I listened to.  This song is so ripe with meaning that trying to put it into words is a bit daunting.  So, I’m not going to try.  Well, I would, but some of those words are very deep, meaningful and personal to me, so I’m just not going to go there right now.

But, do know that this song, once you hear the lyrics a few times, will be one of those songs that will automatically strike a chord with your being.  From the rising pitch of the song, the aching and longing of promise in his voice to the almost atmospheric quality of the song, this one will stick with you long past Valentine’s Day.

Excuse me while I take a minute to compose myself.
