My taste in music tends to be a mash-up of all kinds of things but I recently came upon Hurricane Love, swedish indie group and fell in love because A: They are crazy talented musicians. B: They put so much feeling into every little thing. The recorded versions are better musically but it's the acoustic ones that really get to me.

I've been listening to a lot of songs by the Caramella Girls. Yes, the ones you're thinking of.

It is! There's something I really like about how it starts as opposed to the fade-in in the '87 version and the long intro in the 12'' version, plus I find it odd that the 12'' begins with the "you've got green eyes" line. All of them are good, though! Which one is your favourite?

Yesterday I watched an early concert on Youtube and they play an early version with different lyrics. Sumner looks like he's about to run away in panic any moment... (skip to around 35:40 for Temptation).

I think this is my favorite version just for the earnestness of the vocals, even if the guitar's a little raggedy:



The one you posted is a good version! The main lyrics difference seems to be that he got too scared to remember the first verse, though. Razz

Saw this live at Castlefest, they brought out the original songstress of the Hotel Rwanda score if I heard the frontman correctly. Enormous repertoire and variety, an act that's much better live than digital.

Oh, I didn't know Micachu was also the guy who did the Under the Skin soundtrack. Cool. I always liked this track.

Awesome!! That version is really great!
Yeah, B. Sumner's singing is a bit pants sometimes but I think earnest is a good word to describe how it's like just a regular bloke singing but there's some tension in it so it ends up being quite touching somehow, and I really love that. He also named a song "Love Vigilantes", which always makes me chuckle, haha Razz

I wanted to use a line from this song as my signature ("quand l'amour prévaut il invite à la transformation", meaning "when love prevails it encourages transformation") but then I thought that'd be a bit pretentious and horrible and having something attached to every post probably isn't my thing.

The message is a bit too obvious so slightly cringe-inducing but I like it:

It's quite a bit of work, this love that makes you suffer
That frustrates you when you don't manage to open up
Constraint, control seem easier then
But all they keep in store is hard times

You force it, you scream it, you try to express it, exorcise it
In an attempt to relax, to let go

When love prevails it encourages transformation
The will to power is just a fleeting deed


(my translation so probably way off)

@ Werel: I really loved that Micachu track! Youtube's been recommending me some Micachu vids for the past few days, I guess I'll have to pay attention to my recommendations from time to time...!

Besides the weirdly catchy songs, it's so awesome how two of the people in the video (Yoon Mi-Rae and Tiger JK) are a married couple with a kid, traveling the world and making their own brand of hiphop together while being occasionally adorkable in their music videos. Relationship goals right there.

Haha, proper classic!

I've been talking to a lot of 19-year olds this week, so I guess I went back to what I used to listen to when I was 19 myself...

Gotta be my favorite lyrics about how other animals see us.


Spoiler:
When the beasts let you know
Man, it's got to go
The way it sneers
The way it stares
Lazy and cold
And you have tried to remake its mind
It laughs like a ghost
It is not of your kind
God bless the kings of animals

And when it has gone
Out through the trees
And you watch its legs
Run away free
And in its bark
And its riot eyes
Shows what it is
A good thing gone awry
God bless the kings of animals

Even the kings of animals know to run
