Your Favorite SW vocal line?
21. Feb 2010 at 01:28
 
I don't generally start these types of discussions, but as I'm sitting here listening to Half-Light, I realized that SW's falsetto "It's been so long, years have gone since I belonged. Hold me please, stay with me and I will sleep" is probably my favorite vocal line of his; I really hear alot more emotion and pathos in his voice there than usual. The lyrics are of course, absolutely beautiful as well.
 
So what is yours?

I've always been a big fan of how he sings "Being with you is hell" in Open Car. It's so pleasant, I think it's great how well it contrasts with the lyrics.
 
Also in Russia on Ice his "If I call will you come and will you save me?", is another one that really struck me. Just a perfect tone with such a real phrase.

"Got your voice on tape, I got your spirit in a photograph" from Start of Something Beautiful on the Arriving Somewhere DVD.
I love the way he sings it there!

Anesthetize:The way he says (with feel)Im saying nothing but I'm saying nothing with feel I am simply not here no way shut uup be happy stop whining please( you can feel the frustration)
A smart kid..I will wait for you until the sky is blue...I will wait for you what else can I do (the way he conveys the hopelessness of it all)

From TSOSB...If you ever loved somebody more than they loved you.....and than left you...this song should sting! Wink
 
Always in my thoughts you are
Always in my dreams you are
I got your voice on tape, I got your spirit in a photograph
Always out of reach you are
 
Cold inside my arms you are
Simple like a child you are
I remember when you took my hand and led me through the rain
Down inside my soul you are
 
The more I show the way I feel
The less I find you give a damn
The more I get to know
The less I find that I understand
Innocent, the time we spent
Forgot to mention we're good friends
You thought it was the start of something beautiful?
Well think again.
 
Mother lost her looks for you
Father never wanted you
I trust to love and then I find you never really felt the same
There's something in your heart so cruel

This would be the vocal line that i like...its so powerful in its meaning.
Try telling it to someone that you feel the need to break-up with or just set the record straight.
Heartbreak city!!!

"Always the summers are slipping away..."  from Trains.  This song just oozes nostalgia/innocence.
 
"Thanks..." at the end of Feel So Low.  The way he says it and its placement at the end sums the song up perfectly.  "Thanks for nothing bitch!"

this is a great post! and i just realized in an attempt to reply to it, my God there are so many one liners accompanied by great/unique vocal performances. just another reason i'm in love with PT.  Smiley
 
The Incident - "Camphor crossed with lace it is the witching hour"
 
Fear of a Blank Planet - "We're lost in the mall, shuffling through the stores like zombies" and "And I'm not really sure If the pills I've been taking are helping"
 
Deadwing - "My David don't you worry This cold world is not for you So rest your head upon me I have strength to carry you"
 
In Absentia - "Hissing from the road The smell of rain in the air con Maybe check the news Or just put a tape on"
 
Lightbulb Sun - the sigh + "Can't stop myself drinking Can't stop being me"
 
Recordings - "Don't give up They can plead and beg but don't let them fix your head"
 
Stupid Dream - "A light snow is falling on London" and "Maybe it's time to stop swimming Maybe it's time to find out where I'm at What I should do"
 
Signify - "Smoke in my throat kicks me out of my dream"
 
Sky Moves... - "Springtime is over Don't head for home"
 
Up The Downstair - "I feel no pain Cos I'm an island"
 
and many many more...
