Sunday Song Lyric:
TV on the Radio's Dear Science seems to be the consensus pick for "album of the year," having received this honor from Rolling Stone, Spin and others. I like this band, and enjoyed seeing them open for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs a few years back, I haven't picked this one up yet, but I suppose I'll have to. Here's a taste of the lyrics from one of the singles "Golden Age":
The age of miraclesThe full lyrics are here, and the video is here.
The age of sound
Well there's a Golden Age
Comin' round, comin' round, comin' round
Give it up
'stead of grabbing for decay
What we viewed as gold
I believe pollutes this space
And its grace ascending
Like a snake up your tree
Up your happy ending understanding
All your s'pposed to be
At year's end, I'd also be curious what VC readers think were the best albums, songs, or lyrics of 2008. Leave your suggestions in the comments.
