30-Day Song Challenge: Day 05

Day 5 of the 30-Day Song Challenge asks the question what is “a song that reminds you of someone”? Again at the top of this list has to be the band Trespassers William. It is interesting how a song takes us places we sometimes can no longer go. Lie in the Sound is one of those songs. Every aspect of the lyrics and sound is haunting. The quitar solo at the end with its sustaining sonic yearning is like no other.  In the end we all have a song or two, that transports us back exhaustingly to a time, place or person.
