Song of the Day: JUNE 2019

Hello hello welcome back to Sput's daily listening party, v.June! As some of you may be aware, June is actually the BEST month of the year, being Gemini season (and containing my birthday ;]) and that time when summer has just kicked in and isn't boring yet and everyone is inexplicably happy, so YAY! Theme for this month is GEMINI: either nominate something with manic zany ADHD vibes OR something slow, sad and/or sulky, and then for a fun twist, when we get round to second recs, you have to nominate the opposite of what your first rec was ;] Spreadsheet and rules in the first comment!

My favorite song from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is vocally dry, super slow, and sad. A truly great indie tune.

Thinking about something slow, sad: this song which came into my mind first. Especially, I love the organ the most, but otherwise the whole ambiance is fantastic.

When We First Met
Rec'd by dmathias52
Sugary sweet, instrumentally interesting, manic pop music. An upbeat little diddy that’s almost too cute to function, but never becomes nauseating.

There are slower and sulkier songs out there, but this is quite possibly the saddest I've ever heard... and one of the most devastatingly beautiful.

Omake ~ Super Free Pop ~
Rec'd by Johnny
For the end of the month y'all can have the last track on the best pop album of the decade. First half is smart and catchy as hell, second half is a straight crapshoot. Youtube link is full album, but timestamped for this song!
