Song of the Month: Bright September, Sleepless Lullaby

I imagine October is always going to put me in mind of The Secret World. It was perhaps my favourite game of all time, and it is inextricably tied to the Halloween season.

Halloween as an adult is a depressing affair. When you’re a kid, it’s this magical holiday you spend all year looking forward to. As an adult, it’s a Wednesday. But for a few years, through TSW, I was able to recapture a bit of the magic of Halloween. I will always treasure my memories of investigating Danny’s stories, and listening to radio dramas in graveyards, and summoning the Rider.

TSW may be gone, but I’ll always have the memories.

Given the link between the Secret World and the Halloween season, there’s only one song I could pick for Song of the Month for October.

Hello, I walk into empty.


Song of the Month: Metric, No Lights on the Horizon

Last Friday, Metric released their seventh album, Art of Doubt, and you’d better believe I was on that like stink on a monkey.

This isn’t necessarily Metric’s best album, but it does have a few gems. My pick for best song of the album at the moment is No Lights on the Horizon, a good old-fashioned crushingly sad Metric song. Just like the old days.
