Solomon Grey - "Firechild"
I'm a sucker for anything that sounds like it was lifted from the first era of video gamedom, and even though Solomon Grey toes the line by bringing in a big beautiful string section into "Firechild," I'm gonna let it slide. This here's one of those songs that gets your attention almost immediately courtesy of a relentless little synth tapping away between the cellos and violas. It's all about movement and motion, and the lyrics are peppered with action verbs like "jump" and "run." Just a little bit of futuristic pop fun. Happy Friday, ya freakin' animals. - Crax
