PhotosLyrics week 2 - The City is My Church

Another week, another photo and lyric combination. We’re into week 2 and this time, we’re in Chicago. This photo was taken about 2 years ago on what might have been the most chilly spring break trip ever! But it was well worth it, beautiful city. I spent so much time with friends just walking around and taking it all in and of course the St. Patricks day parade was pretty cool too. I made this sepia toned to add a bit of depth and moodiness because I think Chicago is like that, old and beautiful with lots of stories to tell.

On to the lyric – the first time I heard this track the first words I understood were,The city is my church and I thought to myself, ‘hmm hold on, this is awesome.’ I had to go back and give it another listen and I loved it. The vocals are pretty soft over a pretty dominating musical accompaniment so it’s hard to catch all the lyrics the first time round … or even the second time really. It’s got a definite 80′s sound going for it and if you don’t know what it is yet or who M83 is, then you need to. I promise the big sound of the track will make you want to put your hands in the air and just have a carefree dance party for the duration. It was a hit in 2011 so you probably know it, but even so … it’s such a treat.

So, here we go this week. Chicago and M83.
How about we all pick a city we’re unfamiliar with and learn one thing about it?
I think I’ll go with …. Oslo. Have a wonderful week!
