when you pick a random show on netflix and come to realize it’s the trippiest thing you’ve watched yet..Les Revenants or The Returned is so good. and what’s even greater is Mogwai provides the soundtrack for the entire episode/season. kudos all around to anyone and everyone involved with this brilliant and eerie show.
I am your one true love who sleeps with someone else
I am your nemesis
baby I’m life sweet life itself
these lyrics are so heavy but David Gray’s gritty yet tender voice brings a balance and the song as a whole is stunningly impeccable. the best artists are the ones who never interpret things the same a second time around. they discover and vary their interpretations and David Gray brings new meaning every time he performs this song. and I don’t think it’s because he wants to be “different” but because emotionally, there are many ways to approach and perform a song like this. this rendition of Nemesis just so happens to be my favorite one…I was looking back to see if you were looking back to see if I was looking back at you.
