A lovely and beautiful warm embrace of a song that brightens my darkest days and always makes me feel at ease no matter what. (If there's drums you're listening to the wrong version).

The subject of songs that have made you cry came up on another webzine. First of all, Jari Lindholm is one of my favorite musicians - anything he does is gold. Secondly, the piano in this song is immaculate. Get's me every time.

"Lola"
There is nothing particularly outstanding about this track, except that it is a ridiculously pretty proto-synth-pop tune I was unable to get out of my head. A gorgeous mix of synths and tangling acoustic guitar. And the melody is a damn classic.

"Daterape Cookbook"
This song is this weird crossover between Voivod and Primus with lyrics about telemarketing grandma's. There is not anything like it and it goes against most conventions in progressive music. Insane and awesome.

David Bowie - Sweet Thing
Bowie's anti-glam magnum opus; dejected and barren of morals, the world depicted in "Sweet Thing" mirrors the dystopia of Orwell's 1984 combined with the influence of William Burroughs in the song's cut-up lyrical style. Nine minutes of terror, despair, sex, and ritual suicide.

"Don't Stand a Chance"
it's affected, histrionic, as is many its pop-rock ilk -- but it completely owns the transitions between movements and catches the listener in its whirlwind instead of losing itself in the eye. probably the kind of song you'd hear at the end of the world tbh, or at least at the end of an indie flick.

"Yay"
While there is nothing all that intricate about the opener to Zammuto's self titled 2012 record, it overcomes any simplicity with an addictive radiant nature. Its like the musical form of a positive feeling that did not stem from any specific source and doesn't exactly make sense but envelopes you nonetheless.

"Us"
A nihilistic approach to Jpop. It's a track that paints upon a desperation amidst of the fear of getting lost. The track progressively increases its substances, until it crashes into one hell of a strings medley.

"The Moral Crossing"
Recently released Autobahn album (of my reviewing) carried a mark of frantic songwriting true to the best of the post-punk's elites. And of all cuts on the album, the title track has been a particularly grim, but instrumentally rich endeavour with manic drums, ominous guitarwork, despair-ridden vocals and haunting atmosphere. Yum.
