My Music Monday
But I'm a decent guy - regardless of what others might say. So I'm picking the them, and I think I am going with title songs. Or the track selection with the same title as the album.
I will also open it up to a lyrical phrase that is the title of the album, while it might not be the title of the song. For lack of a better example, Laurie Anderson's "Sharkey's Night" has the lyric "home of the brave". The song appears on Home of the Brave.
I would have thought I'd have done that already, but a quick search and I don't see it happening.
So I may as well start at the As.
I'll go with a-ha and their debut album, Hunting High and Low.
I've said it before, a-ha is not just the "Take on Me" band. While it was overplayed, they have some really good material, and I actually really like their debut. All of it. Considering it is 31 years old (!!), it holds up pretty well.
The version of the song here is a slightly different version. The strings are more pronounced and have a different interlude than the actual album version. It still works.
