Music is a very powerful thing. Hearing it can change your mood, it can uplift you, it can make you cry, and it can bring back some powerful memories. Whenever I hear The Stereophonics, I’m transported back to my days in Dublin, listening to You Gotta Go There To Come Back with my flatmate Colm. It came out while I was living over there. Kelly Jones’ voice isn’t one that I’d normally say I love, but it’s his voice with the mix with the guitars and music that works so well.
Tonight I was listening to music across the interweb, and came across this track. Boy it’s a powerful one. In true Stereophonic style, this song is a story and a sad, tragic one at that. The lyrics mixing with the string-sounded synth made goosebumps jump up all over me. I’ve listened to it 3x in a row now and each time the same reaction. This song moved me. That’s the sign of something pretty good.
