Today I want to play you a song by the magnificent* Neon, but I’ve had a Dickens of a time trying to decide which one. The trouble is that all 12 songs on Neon’s incredibly* magnificent self-titled album (2005) are excellent*. I’ve already played you six tracks from the album at various times in the past (“A Man“, “Happy Going Nowhere“, “Friend“, “Hit Me Again“, “Dizziness“, “New Direction“), so that means there are six more to choose from. But which one?
The band could have made things a whole lot easier by recording an album with just one good song on it and the rest just filler. But no, they had to go and record an album where every song is magnificent*. Grrr.
Anyway, I’ve decided to go with the ballady “Summer Rain”:
Neon – “Summer Rain” (2005)
But that may not have been suitable. Too soft for your tastes, perhaps?
How about “Lapse In Conversation” then?
Neon – “Lapse In Conversation” (2005)
(*I must admit that that’s only my opinion. If you ask someone else – especially someone who doesn’t care for Neon’s music – they may use an entirely different adjective.)
