One of our lads introduced me to Ocean Colour Scene’s music many years ago when he lived with us and went to university. I’ve always enjoyed his eclectic taste and have posted several songs I’ve heard him play at home or in his car.
I always appreciate people turning me on to new music, and I enjoyed the album and found a copy of Mechanical Wonder (their seventh album, released in 2001) on eBay. I went through a phase about 15 years ago where I bought a fair bit of stuff on eBay and became something of an expert at last-seconds bidding to win auction items.
Anyway, I digress; but it’s all part of the story, so maybe not…
Ocean Colour Scene is a Britpop band formed in Birmingham, England in 1989. I enjoy hearing bands from the north of England, my ancestral home, as such music makes me feel closer to my roots and the relatives living there.
I think the song, at least the title anyway, relates to this time of year when nights are dark and long, and we may be searching for positivity, especially in 2020.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
Here’s the video for the song from Ocean Colour Scene’s official YouTube channel:
