Listening to AaRON (abbreviation of "Artificial Animals Riding on Neverland" -- no joke), a French band. Several songs passed by the last 15 minutes, of which I like "Angel dust" and "Le tunnel d'or" most.

"Le tunnel d'or" is the only song in their native French on their debut album, but it has very poetic lyrics:

Et mes rêves s'accrochent à tes phalanges
Je t'aime trop fort, ça te dérange
Et mes rêves se brisent sur tes phalanges
Je t'aime trop fort...
Mon ange...



(and my dreams hang on your phalanxes
I love you too much, it bothers you
And my dreams break on your phalanxes
I love you too strongly…
My angel...)


I wonder if the phalanx reference is metaphorically or refering to a relationship going wrong and ending in domestic violence. I hope it's not the latter...

"Ghost love score" - Nightwish


A 10 minutes long epic piece of symphonic metal with progressive undertones. I adore the first 5 lines of the lyrics, so mysterious and romantic

"We used to swim the same moonlight waters
Oceans away from the wakeful day

My fall will be for you
My fall will be for you
My love will be in you"

Slowdive - When the sun hits

I know there was My Bloody Valentine, but to me shoegaze started with Slowdive. MBV has a bit of an aggressive wall of sound, Slowdive has the same wall of sound but makes it sound dreamy. While definitely not "soft" or "calm" music, this is ideal to dream away to. "Souvlaki" was such an underrated album.

When I saw Slowdive live, they played Alison and then When The Sun Hits, and reached the same perfection as on album, including the heavenly collision of male and female vocals in the outro. Those two songs alone made me want to instantly see more Slowdive concerts. Next tour I'll be there again.
