SWAN LEE In Your Life

Here is their take on Blue Monday. How does it feel?

Sometimes a band are too good to stay with us for a long time. Swan Lee-from Copenhagen-sadly parted ways in 2005 but their music will always remain some of the best music ever produced in the naughties.

This song starts off like a rock gem that Blondie would love to record but then suddenly evolves into a rousing, melancholic, angry and yet uplifting pop "place to be!". This-In Your Life-comes from their self-titled album and as you will hear Coldplay have certainly been listening to this Danish band where the divine Pernille Rosendahl warms the satin sun rays with her breazy prose. If only Coldplay could be this so poptastic...To me In Your Life sounds like Coldplays Clocks/Speed Of Sound fused with Blondie's electrosplash Good Boys. But. That. Might. Just. Be. Me.

Little known fact: The band were originally drafted in to record the theme song to Tomorrow Never Dies and their version of the song is absolutely stunning. It begins with a beautiful harp & then, if Goldfrapp suddenly got soul, Swan Lee's Tomorrow Never Dies takes hold of you and magically transport you to a realm of diamonds, spinning beds and lava lamps without ever being pastiche. Seek it out you if can!

Words: The Cardigans, Coldplay, Laleh, The Ravonettes, Blondie, New Order, Scissor Sisters, Fisherspooner...

In Philosophical Investigations, philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein argued that the concept "game" could not be contained by any single definition, but that Best Payout Casinos must be looked at as a series of definitions that share a "family resemblance" to one another. Games were important to Wittgenstein's later thought; he held that language was itself a game, consisting of tokens governed by mutually agreed upon rules that governed the usage of words.
