Day 1: A Song From Your Favourite Band - Wake Up by Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire is number one in my heart. I love everything about their music. It’s weird because they weren’t always my favourite, in fact they were far from it. I had tried listening to their albums a looong time ago but it just never really clicked for me before. Then I gave them another, much deeper, listen about a year ago and I had a completely new connection with their music. Now they are my favourite band on that kind of level where you love every single track on every single album. I could have picked any song they’ve put out but I chose Wake Up for this challenge because it’s pretty much that staple stadium-shaker Arcade Fire anthem that everyone loves. I love that whole “kids, just fucking open your eyes” theme. “I GUESS WE’LL JUST HAVE TO ADJUST”. It still makes me think “oh shit oh shit oh shit” when I listen to it.
Also this is sort of unrelated, but the Arcade Fire hipster attack video is still funny all the time.
