Musical Musings A to Z: Y is for You Am I
It’s the penultimate week in my quest through the musical alphabet – I can’t quite believe we are nearly at the end!
You can check out my earlier posts here. Looking back it has been quite the journey travelling through decades, across genres, touching on a wide variety of artists.
This week brings us to Y and I have decided to feature alternative Australian band, You Am I.
I have to confess that I don’t own a You Am I album. They are one of those bands who I’ve appreciated over the years but have never felt the deep need to add to my collection. Having said that, these two songs are now newly installed on my iTunes library – they are truly classic tunes.
I have always enjoyed listening to this song although it is rather poignant and sad. The simple acoustic guitar lends the right note of pathos, as does Tim Rodgers’ vocals too.
I love the minor chord changes in this song and the bridge is awesome too with the haunting strings and acoustic guitar dominating the way to the chorus. Just an awesome song in so many ways!
That’s my Y selection for this week. I thought I better spare you the flashback to Yazz… 😉
Make sure you come back for the 26th and final post in my series – who will I choose as my Z artist???
