Pull Back The Curtains

I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired this week and busy with work stuff. Then driving home last night this shuffled onto the car’s stereo- This Is The Day by The The. Compared to a lot of Matt Johnson’s stuff it’s pretty subtle, those lovely observational lyrics, the wheezy rhythm and that gorgeous accordion. And compared to his grand geopolitical songs and denunciations of religion it shows that sometimes it’s the little human touches that make a song connect. This is the day, her life will surely change.

This Is The Day
