There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite
As this is the last Sunday before Christmas Day, we thought we would do something a little different. Previously we have played our favourite Christmas Song which has changed a few times over the years. Recently it has been Gary Jules & Michael Andrews’ version of “Mad World”. It is probably the world’s weirdest Christmas Song as it concerns dreams in which people die. We thought we would take that a step further and choose our favourite song that could have been the weirdest Christmas Song of all time… but wasn’t.
See if you can work the lyrics out…
Saw you from the urchin’s side, from under the boat
Saw you making knots, saw you get the rope
The boy appearing on the deck and making it lurch
And bubble of your interests ready to burst
He whistles and he runs
Saw you in distraction, a sleeping slow despair
Rehearsing interaction, he wasn’t even there
A creature is a creature though you wish you were the wind
The boat will not stop moving if you tie him up until the end
He whistles and he runs so hold him fast
Breathe the burn, you want to let it last
He might succumb to what you haven’t seen
He has a keen eye for what you used to be
When the cadaverous mob saves its doors for the dead men
You cannot leave
We don’t even understand the song; either the lyrics or the video. It is “A Time To Be So Small” by Interpol. As far as we know, there is no official video for the song because it was never released as a single. This video is just one we found on YouTube.
Interpol – A Time To Be So Small.
Don’t forget, if you have any music videos you would like us to feature in the future, drop us a line. We are always happy to listen to requests from others, we cannot promise to feature any but we will try our best to find the videos if we think others will enjoy.
