So there’s nothing in my inbox that needs reviewing soon. But yesterday we had some proper fog, like, Hound of the Baskervilles fog. Here is a four-track playlist of songs I felt were thematic in a fog environment.
Vienna is a song that was made for strutting around in your winter coat with the collar pulled up. Personally, I feel about ten times cooler when I do that. Though my winter coat is a pea coat so it doesn’t really go all the way down to my knees like Ultravox’s coat. It just protects me from the cruel sea.
I really like this track, and the video that goes with it. But at the same time, I can’t take it seriously at all – the intro looks like a springboard for a Horrible Histories sketch.
Didn’t even know there was a video for this track, but it’s a great one. It seems made for the bleak, Northern autumn.
This song crowns Frightened Rabbit’s album The Midnight Organ Fight – I had it belting out of my stereo the other night, all to satisfy my inner-angsty-teenager. Anyway: this is a song for leaving the fog bank.
(I had a little giggle finding this on YouTube, because it gave me an advert for the new Killers album. I was laughing, because I was remembering the last time they were in the charts. Hah!)
