Songs For Adventure #1

"Sun A.M." by Moonbabies
from 'The Orange Billboard' (2004)

I've always wanted to go on an adventure. Not an overly dramatic one, it should be said, but one of those coming-of-age journeys that all respectable teenage actors in Hollywood make a film about. I imagine if I ever did make such an adventure it would be a particularly cheery and overly optimistic one. That's just the sort of adventure I'd have. And, of course, being your average music-obsessive my adventure would be all about the soundtrack. A summery mixture of road songs and slow songs (for evenings in dodgy South American casinos and Caribbean beach parties). And so, my first song for adventure is atypical of this ideal. What's more, it's from a Swedish band, which somehow makes me slightly happier inside.
