I went onto their website last night, and when I saw that glorious notice... MY HEART NEARLY STOPPED. (What can I say? It was a great moment.) When I resumed breathing, I managed to download the cd! (And for someone as technologically challenged as myself, this really is quite the accomplishment.) During a period of late-night insomnia/snacking, I listened to the entire thing (it was a REALLY LONG period of insomnia) and I can safely say that it's pretty wonderful. In honour of this new release, I decided to compile a list of my favourite Stars songs! They play in several different genres, so check a few out- you might find you don't care for some of them but others may blow your mind.
1- Take Me to the Riot (The first song I ever heard of theirs. A little more punk rock.)
2- Tonight (Simple, and so sweet.)
3- A Thread Cut With a Carving Knife (Odd title, beautiful song.)
4- Do You Want to Die Together? (This one is off their new release, so I was unable to add a link. Sorry! However, I could sing it for you, as it is currently stuck in my head. For once I don't mind!)
5- Going, Going, Gone- Live (The contrast between the singers' voices is lovely.)
6- Romantic Comedy (The lyrics always sounds to me like a deconstruction of an actual romantic movie.)
7- Personal (Another soft, sad song, perfect to fall asleep to.)
8- Your Ex-Lover Is Dead (A lovely and melancholic end-of-relationship song.)
9- One More Night (Similar in meaning to the Maroon 5 song, but very different lyrics and feel!)
10- Theory of Relativity (The first single off their new CD. Quite peppy and techno-y.)
I'm sure some more of their latest songs will also be added to this list once I listen to them more! Do you have a band you're utterly obsessed with that you'd like to share?
Linking up with Jenny Matlock for Alpha-Thursdays and The Wright Stuff for Current Crush!
