Song of the Day (The Chain): Mogwai – Cody

Day 8. From the swirling psychedelics of The Flaming Lips to the stark Post-Rock soundscapes of Mogwai. The connection between yesterday’s Flaming Lips song & todays is that they were both produced by the same producer, Dave Fridmann.

Cody is the title track (via acronymisation) of Mogwai’s fan favourite second studio album, Come On Die Young. Cody is a slow, melancholic track. One of the few Mogwai tracks to feature lead vocals, Cody has an almost narcotic beauty.

Of all I knew, I held too few 
And would you stop me, if I try to stop you? 

Old songs stay ’til the end 
Sad songs remind me of friends 
And the way that it is, I could leave it all 
And I ask myself, would you care at all? 

When I drive alone at night, I see the streetlights as fairgrounds 
And I tried a hundred times to see the road signs as Day-Glo 

Old songs, stay till the end 
Sad songs, remind me of friends 
And the way that it is, I could leave it all 
And I ask myself, would you care at all?

Old songs, stay till the end 
Sad songs, remind me of friends 
And the way that it is, I could leave it all 
And I ask myself, would you care at all?
