Music for waking up ridiculously early on a Saturday morning: New Order- Age of Consent. There's no way to tell if the sun's not up yet, or if it's just hiding behind the thick clouds. The first really cloudy and rainy week of autumn here has just passed, bringing with it a weekend of more cozy gray. I've been up for ages, drinking coffee and listening to Power, Corruption & Lies. Your Silent Face seems to tie into Run Wild (from Get Ready); both have a grandiose melancholy (melodrama?). No synth strings in Run Wild but it's the saddest song I can think of. but if jesus comes to take your hand, i won't let go... i won't let go.... Cheesy songs usually annoy me to no end, but the simpleness of these two is arresting.
