Not a massively big impact as with some other bands, but I love having a Summer band where you can just chill out in the sun and play all the songs.
What are your favorite lyrics of 5 (Stereophonics)?
“And all the friends lay down the flowers, sit on the banks and drink for hours, talk of the way they say him last, local boy in photograph, today.” The lyrics are based around the death of one of the local boys from the town, and how the community reacts because of how tight a small town is. It’s really well written.
