Riff: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “Always”

Apr 17, 2013

Forget the time, forever mine/Impossibility is possible to me/To me and you, we’ll see it through

from Always lyrics by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Dubbed “the engagement song” by KO, cutely preceding LP4′s “Wedding Song,” dreamy synths dance with a distant island rhythm, as KO attempts to get sentimental about that sweet moment between courtship and promise. Maybe on a John Hughes OST it would have been charming. But on a record called Mosquito?
