Bloc Party – Mercury
The thing about Bloc Party is that I became one of those “more than an occasional listener” of them after their concert. I’ve only heard about them, well, their name at least.. but never really got to listen to any of their music. Actually, I found out recently (at the time that the concert was still well-advertised here) that THIS song is from them. Take a wild guess before you click that link and find out what song that is.. you’ll do a facepalm gesture for sure.
So yeah, that song. I always hear it in this particular show in one local music channel here in the Philippines. I never got to listen to the entire song ever, to be honest, just the first 0:25-0:45 seconds of it.. and then I quickly dismissed it. I didn’t even give it a chance. I thought it was electronica music. Boy was I SO wrong.
You’re probably thinking that I am a newly-turned fan because I saw them live 3 weeks ago during their concert in Manila. To tell you the truth.. I didn’t get to watch their show here. 🙁 I kinda regret not seeing them perform their songs live, but at the same time I don’t.. because somehow, I still got to see them, if you know what I mean.
Now this is obviously not going to be an event cover blog post. Haha.
QUESTION: Why is there a video of Mercury from one of their TV appearances on top? That’s my current favorite song from them. I’m sorry I’m so late to join the bandwagon of Bloc Party fandom, I’m catching up as fast as I can. Promise. Listen to it, it’s awfully catchy.
