The final season of Six Feet Under is now shooting, and I have just ordered my copy of Season 3 on DVD, so I thought it was an appropriate time to post this song (apart from the song itself – more on that later).
Anyway, if you haven’t seen it, Six Feet Under is probably the best non-cartoon TV show (except maybe Oz
) ever made. This song appeared in the pilot episode, and is an exceptional example of how effective soundtrack can be. The shot of Nate, with the enormity of what has just happened, crushing him, with the world continuing on all around him matches the mood of this song perfectly.
If I was to pull apart the song, there is nothing amazing going on here. Mixer to the stars Tom Lord-Alge has definitely added his polish to the mix, but again, like most good songs, it just works in no quantifiable way.
I must have listened to this song hundreds of times, I can just listen to it on loop over and over and over again. I like the way it builds up, and I like the lyrics.
I guess having felt like this a while ago, now I know someone who has been waiting in the right bars, waiting in the right shoes, waiting in a fast car, waiting in the airports, waiting for my airmiles, waiting in slow motion, coming through the turnstiles.And if you ever change your mind,you know I'm hard to find,and if you ever need someone...
