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.

x2!!! and the entire part "and a dream plays in reverse on piano keys... leading up to that spine chilling ending
 
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.

"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...

I take this poll as referring to how much I am affected by hearing a particular part of a song sung by SW, rather than the lyrics themselves, though of course the latter are a major contributing factor. It's lyrics, plus tune, plus emotion, plus whatever other undefinable elements make a particular passage send chills up the spine.
So without thinking too hard, I would nominate:
 
"I may just waste away from doing nothing"
 
"Don't hate me... I'm not special like you"
 
"Strange how you never become
The person you see when you're young"
 
"Stop whining... please"
 
"In this moment - you were stolen
There's black across the sun"
 
All of My Ashes.
 
That'll do for now.

Heartattack in a Layby- We'll grow old together. BEAUTIFUL!
My Ashes- Saiiiiiis (near the end)
A Smart Kid- I will wait for you. Until the sky is blue (especially the Atlanta live version)
Drown With Me- You should drown with me (I LOVE the way he sings that)
The Seance- Under gaslight, the joining of hands. Chanting a name over and over (it gives me goosebumps, the way he sings this lyric)
Lightbulb Sun- When I'm asleep the smoke fills me. I feel the heat, my illness leaves me
The Rest Will Flow- Stay with me my angel I found you  
Now I don't feel low (it makes me cry, the way he sings this. It's a really lovely song IMO)
.3- Black the sky, weapons fly.
 
 
SW is not only a fantastic songwriter and guitarist, but he's a brilliant singer IMO.

"I'm a shade, and easy to ignore" - Kinda emo I know, but I've always liked it.
"I woke up and I had a big idea, to buy new soul at the start of every year"
"Only apathy from the pills in me, it's all in me, all in you"
"Sullen and bored the kids stay, and in this way they wish away each day"
"But Russia on ice is burning a hole"
 
I could keep this up all night, there are so many great lines.

IMO, the climax of In Absentia. It´s fantastic how they guide you over the incredible bass line and then all explode in theese two lines.

"I come in value packs of ten, in five varieties."
 
I seem to recognize this every time and it always sounds so odd... but I like it.

This is a really good topic.

 
this was my first thought, too!  
 
there are a lot of great lines, of course, but my favourite line is the only one that makes me shiver ever time i listen to it: cant stop being me from russia on ice

I'd also add:  
"I could tell you what I'm thinking While we sit here drinking But I'm not sure where to start"  
in Time Flies, really sticks in my mind.

Lately, "strange as you never become the person you see when you're young" from Where we would be gives me chills...

One of my new favourite SW vocal lines is in Blackfields "Dissolving with the Night":
 
"All those people who smile, never cry, but it's fine with me, with their feet on the ground, blinded by the sun, never asking more from life"
 
Always a great moment when I listening to the record...

There are just so freakin many...
 
My personal favorite might be off the We Lost the Skyline album. The version of drown with me on there, the chorus is just amazing to me.
 
I could probably post in this topic once a week and always have a different answer.

Agreed to the falsetto part in Half Light, it's gorgeous.
 
Collapse the Light into Earth:

And sorry to burst anyone's bubble, but "SAAAAAAAILS" was actually John Wesley.

"Ever thought from here on in your life begins and all you knew was wrong?" for lyrical content
 
"Being with you is hell" for the irony in the way it is delivered Smiley
