Songs and albums

August 01, 2009: Toto:Bottom Of Your Soul

  • nominated by 91.49.
This song is from Toto's last album Falling In Between. It is a beautiful emotional song dealing with poverty. Whereas the verses are sung by guitarist Steve Lukather, the chorus and the final part feature former lead singer Joseph Williams, whose outstanding performance and voice provide the special something to an already great song.

February 15, 2011: Pretty Things by Rufus Wainwright

  • Nominated by 91.49.
This song from Wainwright's album Want One is like a poem set to music. It is rather short and doesn't follow the usual verse/chorus structure - which goes for many of his songs. Its lyrics are very poetic and utterly beautiful. "Be a star, And fall down somewhere next to me". And the melody is very poetic, too.

February 23, 2011: Dinner At Eight by Rufus Wainwright

  • Nominated by 91.49.
This is another song from Want One. It is a very personal and heartfelt song he wrote after a quarrel with his father. It's about being left by him and about wanting to see tears in his eyes. "But till then no, Daddy, don't be surprised, If I want to see the tears in your eyes".

December 23, 2011: Memphis Skyline by Rufus Wainwright

  • Nominated by 91.49.
This heartbreaking song is a tribute to the late Jeff Buckley, who drowned in Wolf River, a tributary of the Mississippi river, in 1997. The two had met several months before Buckley's death. At the end of the song Wainwright pleads: "Turn back and you will stay, Under the Memphis Skyline".
