Today’s Discover challenge, by Michelle Weber, is about the word “orchestrate.” The last piece of music which moved me is the song battle born by The Killers.
Up against the wall (Up against the wall) There’s something dying on the street When they knock you down (Up against the wall) You’re gonna get back on your feet Cause you can’t stop now (Cause you can’t stop now) Did they break your heart? (Did they break your heart?) And did they cause your soul to mourn Remember what I said Boy you was battle born
While The Killers are a great band, I didn’t initially have a strong positive reaction to this song of theirs. Eventually, though, it began to move me the way a piece of music does, giving me the odd moment of pause while relevance in the song hits home with me.
What would it be that is “dying on the street?” I wonder briefly when I hear it. There is a Pavement song from 1995, Grounded, that has a similar lyric. Both are interesting songs.
