Like everything good these days, this holiday needs a SOUNDTRACK. Here are the first two contenders. I’d appreciate your suggestions.
Contender #1 – California by Phantom Planet
Obviously this song is location specific, but I could imagine landing at LAX with this blaring out of the overhead speakers. It’s got to be better than I Still Call Australia Home sometimes played by that airline that would like to be anything other than Australian! Check out the lyrics here http://www.theocshow.com/songlyrics/0001.htm.
I have a short clip of the chorus here, sorry about the bad quality, but if you really want to here it and can bear Orange County then watch Channel 10, and remember don’t steal music!
Contender #2 – Jacqueline by Franz Ferdinand
Apart from being a better band, this “post-punk” (or so says my player) song applies to all holidays. Perhaps I should let the lyrics speak for themselves. Consider this chorus:
It’s always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That’s why we only work when
We need the money
You can get all the lyrics here http://www.lyrics007.com/Franz%20Ferdinand%20Lyrics/Jacqueline%20Lyrics.html
Not so sure that the rest of the lyrics are that pertinent, but the chorus is good.
I’ve also got a short clip for you here.
