Lightning Blue Eyes – The Secret Machines

Remember The Secret Machines? We kinda do, although it has been a while since we anybody made much a fuss about them. I mean besides us. Anyway, their last CD, Ten Silver Drops, has been out for well over a year, and it never really got its fair accolades. This is probably the most addictive and recognisable track from the CD. It also sounds the most like the best songs on Now Here is Nowhere, but better than any single track on that CD. Featuring the impossibly growing driving beat and singalongable harmonizations, I can’t get this song out of my head. Not only do I not want it to end, but when it eventually does, I keep it going on the inside. The lyrics are kind of neat as well. There is some wordplay on blinding/lightning and songs about blue eyes are almost always destined to be classic. Every instrument is perfect. There is even a lovely canon embedded in the 2nd refrain. Something for everyone, really. If anyone hears of a 40 minute remix of this song, please let me know ASAP.

The video (since I am an embedding null)

Ding!
