What's Their Best Song? #32: Everything Everything

Hello. We all love voting and ranking stuff, right? So let’s do it with some artists’ back catalogues. This will be a series of threads (unsure of timeframe etc at the moment) so if you don’t like an artist then don’t you worry your sweet ass, another will be along soon after. This time we’ll be voting on songs by Everything Everything

HOW IT WORKS

So, voting will be similar to ones I’ve done before. You have 10 points to distribute however you like, across the entirety of the artist (Everything Everything in this case)‘s entire catalogue of songs. Album tracks, singles, b-sides, whatever you like, if I can google it and verify that it’s by them then it can get points. You can give all 10 points to one song or 1 point to 10 songs or anything in between. I’ll then calculate the points totals and do a results thread where the boards’ favourite song by whoever the subject is will be revealed.

:rotating_light: PLEASE DM ME TO VOTE, VOTES POSTED IN THE THREADS WILL NOT BE COUNTED :rotating_light:

Any questions? Thought not, let’s get going!

General chat is encouraged, obviously.

Funny thing is the lyrics to that song are absolutely mental and a huge part of what got me into them after the initial shock and awe of their early sound wore off.

Lucifer you’re landing
Crosshairs on the kitchen sink
Barbwire in the bathroom
I can’t make new memories since

Flashbacks to the time
This shell-shocked apartment was the place
I met with your boy
It’s a mortal thing, yeah, it’s a mortal thing - “Oh!”
He looked at me funny and I - “Oh! Oh!”
Think our secret’s out and I - “Oh-oh-oh!”
I try to explain, but then munitions rain
And we’re the epicentre

It’s like I’m watching the A4 paper taking over the guillotine
It’s like I’m watching the A4 paper taking over the guillotine

And I wanna know what happened to your boyfriend
'Cause he was looking at me like, “Whoa!”
Yeah, right before the kitchen was a dustbowl
And tossing me the keys and I can’t forget how
And everything just coming through the windows
And half the street was under my nails
It’s like we’re sitting in a Faraday cage
When the lights all failed

I fly through the walls
All pieces colliding and I
See Raymond apart
He’s a-frowning now, wagging a finger at me - “Boy!”
His knees bend the other way and - “Boy! Boy!”
Are you guys together, honey? - “B-b-boy!”
Oh but now I can’t find his torso
“Hmm, hmm, hmm” I guess you’re separated now

It’s like I’m watching the A4 paper taking over the guillotine (Monica, I just wanna know)
It’s like I’m watching the A4 paper taking over the guillotine (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

And I wanna know what happened to your boyfriend
'Cause he was looking at me like, “Whoa!”
Yeah, right before the kitchen was a dustbowl
And tossing me the keys and I can’t forget how
And everything just coming through the windows
And half the street was under my nails
It’s like we’re sitting in a Faraday cage
When the lights all failed
The lights all failed

Lucifer, you’re landing (I do believe it will be business inside) (lights all failed)
Crosshairs on the kitchen sink (it’s a real spanner into my works) (I think I kicked the bucket)
Baby’s on the bullseye (I do believe it will be business inside) (lights all failed)
I can’t make new memories since (it’s a real spanner into my works)
…ries since …ries since

And I wanna know what happened to your boyfriend
'Cause he was looking at me like, “Whoa!”
Yeah, right before the kitchen was a dustbowl
And tossing me the keys and I can’t forget how
And everything just coming through the windows
And half the street was under my nails
It’s like we’re sitting in a Faraday cage
When the lights all failed

And now everybody gotta go hungry
And everybody cover up their mouths
And I haven’t seen the body count lately
But looking at your faces, it must have been bad
And if everybody answered their phone calls
But people say the army’s on fire
It’s like we’re sitting with our parachutes on
But the airport’s gone

…And that was a single.

New Music Friday is gonna have to wait. It’s now Everything Everything day.

Might decide that no new music was released today except The End of the Contender.

My votes were distributed among the following. There’s too many perfect tracks so these mainly win due to life connections elevating them.

Spring / Sun / Winter / Dread

  • Somerset House absolutely popping off on a dreamy summer evening.
  • P learning ‘baboon’ as one of her earliest words to demand it on repeat.
  • R aged 3 settling fully into their set at Live At Leeds when she noticed a woman who must have been in her 60s dancing her socks off to it

Night of the Long Knives

  • Fever Dream was the first time I approached an EE release as a fanatical zealot and what a way to open it
  • The best song live

NASA is on your side

  • My favourite lyrics - just so evocative
    Chasing homeless cheerleaders,
    Through the sewers lit by burning polythene bags
    Pushing flame scorched limos to the oil rig tonight,
    For the promenade dance

Pizza Boy

  • R’s fave song when we filled in her annual “Book of You” on her 4th birthday. Vivid memories of her demanding it on repeat for a 40 min car journey when she was 3 so she could learn the words.

Cold Reactor

  • So many dances to this in the kitchen with the family. Will forever be connected with P discovering the magic of music.
