Ironically reading this article
had reminded me all over again of my unhealthy love for Beck's "Lonesome Tears
." There's the orchestral swelling leading up to the chorus, the briefly disorienting drums at the beginning, I-I am just too overwhelmed by the overall loveliness of that song.
Also, hearing this
always makes me want to reconsider watching Sunshine
While we're on the subject of YouTube non sequiturs, this
is just insane.

The later part when he starts yelling "Waiting and fading and floating away...", everything just comes together so well there.
I am seriously torn on whether to hail or strangle Zack Snyder for cannibalizing so many perfect music moments for his movie trailers. I'm looking at you, Sucker Punch
. (Resurrecting the Smashing Pumpkins' "The Beginning is the End is the Beginning" for the Watchmen
trailer was also a novel decision.)
Since "Panic Switch" is already here (for the record I also love that song's badass bass riff), I might as well mention that ever since the second trailer came out our house has had Led Zeppelin's "When The Levee Breaks"
on unironically heavy rotation. Obviously the guitar solos go without saying, but it's a pleasantly surreal moment when they take up the whole first minute and 23 seconds of the song and your ears are just bombarded with nothing but those guitars. Like, damn. I could have sworn my heart stopped the first time I heard all of it.
