Lamb‘s stunning ode to love, Gorecki, features powerful lyrics that even a cynical fuck, such as myself, can appreciate.
So my Classics section is back. However, this time around I’m going to focus more on playing DJ as apposed to being autobiographer. I’ll still say a few words about what each song means to me..but then it’s all about the music.
My friend Taylor and I were obsessed with all things Trip-hop after the emergence of Portishead, Tricky, Massive Attack, etc back in the mid-90s. We used to go to our favorite record shop, AB-CD, in Norwalk CT, and sift through their collection of used imported CDs for hours and hours and hours.
One day Taylor came across Lamb’s self-titled debut and brought it home for a listen. It didn’t take long before the two of us became obsessed with that album and specifically the lead single off that album, Gorecki.
Whether you’re a cynic or not, love means comfort to everyone. So no matter how hard you try, I defy you not to feel a little warm and fuzzy while reading some of the lyrics to Gorecki below:
could we stay right here
till the end of time until the earth stops turning
wanna love you until the seas run dry
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for
I don’t feel like posting more than that, so you’ll have to listen to the song to hear the rest! I hope you enjoy it!
