Songs For My Kids: 30-day Song Challenge Day 2
Welcome to Day 2 of this 30-day song challenge. As mentioned on Day 1, I’ve started this personal challenge as a way to document my taste in music so that if my kids are ever interested they can see the sort of stuff their dad was into.
Day 2: A song you like with a number in the title
There are lots of songs with numbers in the title, right? This one jumped out at me straight away. When people think of Damien Rice they may think of ‘The Blower’s Daughter’ or ‘Cannonball’, but I love this one off his second album.
For me, it is about a relationship that has become stagnant, with neither fully committing and it potentially leading to an affair… well, that’s what I thought. It is a beautiful song (featuring Lisa Hannigan) even if I’ve made it sound depressing…
‘9 Crimes’ by Damien Rice.
