Song of the day: Falling Joys – "Lock It"

Here are the Falling Joys with “Lock It” (1990):


“Lock It” appeared on Wish List (1990). (You can hear the rest of the album in a previous Song of the day post.)

I love listening to this song on headphones because of a guitar in the mix. In the verses it moves steadily from one side of the soundstage to the other – left to right – and when it gets to the end it starts from the left all over again. Love it, love it, love it. I suppose for some people it might be infuriating, but I find it hypnotic (sort of like “follow the bouncing guitar”). The song also has wonderful layered vocals in the choruses, and towards the end of the song there’s an entirely new melody for the chorus. Great stuff.
