5 Songs… Deniz Çiçek (Kraków Loves Adana)
In der Rubrik „5 Songs…” erzählen uns Musiker von Songs, die einen großen Einfluss auf ihr musikalisches Schaffen hatten bzw. haben. Nach Kevin Devine und James Alex von Beach Slang haben wir diesmal Deniz Çiçek von unserem Geheimtipp Kraków Loves Adana nach ihren fünf Lieblingsliedern gefragt.
Morrissey – Dear God Please Help Me
„And I’m walking through Rome and there is no room to move but the heart feels free“
Morrissey is and has always been one of my biggest inspirations. This song is so unique, it is emotionally beguiling and embraces despair, desire and epiphany with a well-chosen and delicate instrumentation. Truly a timeless masterpiece, I always reach for when I am drowning in self doubts and despair.
Bright Eyes – Sunrise Sunset
„When was the last time you looked in the mirror cause you’ve changed, yeah you’ve changed“
Conor Oberst paints the big picture in this one, illustrating the often meaningless and repetitive circles one can undergo in life. A genuine self-reflection, working with lyrical contrast. A somehow scary song, that impresses me with its very honesty and bluntness.
Angelo Badalamenti – Twin Peaks Theme
This song just get’s to me with the very first tone. You are immediately finding yourself in this mysterious world full of bizarrness and soothing well-being at the same time. I am highly recommending to put this record on with every year’s first falling leaf.
The Kills – No Wow
„Forever is the feather, you ain’t got no more“
Titletrack „No Wow“ of the Kills’ second LP bares a very raw immediacy, which is characteristic for the whole record. You can feel the heart thumping in this track, the tempestuousness and interpersonal tension make a striking listening experience leaving you stunned after just 4 minutes.
Lana Del Rey – Born to Die
„Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough I don’t know why“
The opening and title track of Lana Del Rey’s second studio album. A powerful song and a tribute to true love as well as chasing your wildest dreams. The sound landscape and lyrical genius in this one is just exceptional. For me, Lana is queen.
