(Okay, so today’s SOTD was going to be Tori Amos’s Cornflake Girl, but it’s not on Grooveshark so I’ll have to upload the entirety of Tales of a Librarian at some point and do that one another day.)

SOTD: The Cure: The Loudest Sound



I love this song. The music is almost-but-not-quite melancholy, almost-but-not-quite an emotion which is nearly happiness, but comes closer to ‘smiling a little bit’, and lands almost directly on ‘wistful’. The lyrics land quite solidly on the ‘sad’ side of wistful:

“Side by side in silence they pass away the day. So comfortable, so habitual, and so nothing left to say. Nothing left to say. Nothing left to say. Side by side in silence his thoughts echo ‘round. He looks up at the skies, yeah; she looks down at the ground…stares down at the ground. Stares down at the ground. Side by side in silence they wish for different worlds: she dreams him as a boy, and he loves her as a girl. Loves her as a girl. And side by side in silence, without a single word. It’s the loudest sound. It’s the loudest sound. It’s the loudest sound I ever heard.“
