Song of the Day - September 1, 2005

I love the juxtaposition of Snow Machine's lyrics versus their music. The music, melody, and vocals all impart a feeling of happiness, but if one pays attention to the lyrics, one finds that the message of the song is much darker. This bittersweet style is evident in the track "Camel Lights." Listen to the lyrics:

The money is gone
And mother threw your records on the lawn
But hey, who needs a car
When you got me

The almost toy-like piano combined with Katherine McElroy lovely vocals are the perfect compliment to the bittersweet lyrics. Click here to listen.
