Facebook’s 30 Day Song Challenge – Day 19

Day 19 – A song from your favourite album. dEUS – ‘Instant Street’

Brilliant, weird, visionary Belgians who, at times, sound like they’ve been parachuted in from another universe, made what is probably my favourite ever album in 1999, and I’ve been listening to it on and off ever since. It is a record of many levels, which rewards on all of them – melodically, lyrically, and in terms of the whole production and the pace of the record it is sublime. A true example of the album as a body of work.

The standout from an album of standouts for me is the single, ‘Instant Street’. As much fun to play on the guitar as it is to listen to, it builds to an amazing crescendo – and has a brilliantly oddball video to go with it, which develops in a similarly tangential way to the song. Enjoy!
