…zit er dagenlang een liedje in je hoofd.
Op dit moment vind ik One day like this van de Engelse band Elbow erg mooi. Het komt van hun album The Seldom Seen Kid. Wanneer je op deze link klikt, zie je een kippenvelveroorzakende liveversie van dit nummer met het BBC orkest en het Chantage koor.
Hier is de tekst:

ONE DAY LIKE THIS

Drinking in the morning sun
Blinking in the morning sun
Shaking off the heavy one
Heavy like a loaded gun

What made me behave that way?
Using words I never say
I can only think it must be love
Oh, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

Someone tell me how I feel
It’s silly wrong but vivid right
Oh, kiss me like the final meal
Yeah, kiss me like we die tonight

Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with me half-awake
Oh, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

When my face is chamois-creased
If you think I’ll wink, I did
Laugh politely at repeats
Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin

Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see you like
Yeah, lying with me half-awake
Stumbling over what to say
Well, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

So throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year’d see me right!
