Inspired Singles: Issue 02 by Luke Fandrich

Goes Away by Delta Spirit

This sim
ple and down to earth tune has catchy lyrics and a strumming tempo that hooks me from the start. It doesn't hurt that the music fits perfectly with those sluggish days in the office - 'wait until tomorrow goes away' as Delta Spirit puts it, and yes, yes I will wait.

Get Over It by OK Go

The end of high school, my first year of uni, whatever it was that made this song so memorable I'm not entirely sure - although there was certainly a lot going on. This single from 2002 is still on rotation in my car and it's the mix of overly descriptive lyrics and the bass/clap back beat that makes this song worthy of belting it out - and I quote 'lot
of knots, lot a snags; lot a holes, lot of cracks lot a crags; lotta naggin' old hags; a lotta fools; a lot of fools, scumbags!' and you thought rhymes were boring. Classic.

From the Stars by White Lies

Both ominous and heavy, From the Stars has a driving undertone that makes the story within the lyrics more direct. The change in pace as the song gets going is like transitioning from a dark alley onto a crowded bustling street lit with vibrant neon. In general, the album To Lose My Life is a great collection of tracks worth hearing again and again.
