"Set the Fire to the Third Bar" / "Hands Open" / "It's Beginning to Get to Me" / "You Could be Happy" / "Open your Eyes" by Snow Patrol
It's a funny thing...it often takes me several months/years to acknowledge the brilliance and excellence of some of my favorite band's latest works and about 18 months ago I realized how amazing Snow Patrol's 2006 album "Eyes Open" was. I'm still trying to get through "A Hundred Million Suns" but tbh "Just Say Yes" has me excited about their new direction. However, "Eyes Open" is as you can pretty clearly see, is an alnmost perfect album from start to finish and I couldn't pick just one song...although at this moment my favorite out of the 5 songs I listed is "You Could be Happy" for those lyrics in the ende of the song..Do the things that you always wanted to; Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do; More than anything I want to see you go; Take a glorious bite out of the whole world. So beautiful and personal to me at this moment.
