Enough, enough, enough, enough, mind games.
I couldn’t help writing that. It’s because I love how the song starts. And guess what: I love how it continues even more, otherwise why would I even type these words?
Welcome to a musically playful exploration of a mentally complex topic. I feel that the vocals are spot on given the way the topic is approached (Ed does a great job of communicating a feeling of “this must end”). And when it comes to Michael Mayer’s music, I can only say that the way this song is layered and architected is highly entertaining. It’s almost as if two melodies are playing with each other. They’re very much alike and yet, with the use of (mostly) three simple chords, so different.
I tried to find the lyrics for the song (there’s some interesting sentences in there), but only found results that are clearly somebody’s (very) broken interpretation of what Ed sings. I can probably write a better “translation”, but I think it’s the artists that should publish the lyrics if they wish to.
Enough mind games!
You can listen to the melody for free, in good quality, on BandCamp, which is one of the best websites when it comes to supporting artists. You can also purchase the song (or album) from this same location.
