That kind of excuse
not something I'd use
and never this way
Could think of a lie
'bout what happened that night
and where I'm today
But when the truth doesn't hurt
no fanciful words
it's no kind of fun
Still trying my best
to fail your test
Not stranger than fiction

Tried hard not to move
for feeling the fool
and falling for you
Where once we were lost
these lies you can trust
I wrote them for you
And if it's over the top
just tell me to stop
or I'll carry on and on and on
Still trying to glean
just quite what you mean

Not stranger than fiction

I find this song as a whole outstanding, especially from the moment 1:40 onwards. Violin and piano merge in a sublime way and it is so uplifting that I cannot hold a tear being shed. Such a comforting melody somehow... maybe trying to tell me to go on, that life is hard sometimes, but that I should keep going forward even if the path is long and arduous.


A song that just full-on makes me bawl (sometimes) is Goyte's "Save Me." Incredible song. Inspiring, humbling, hopeful and touching are adjectives that come to mind. It's got a good beat and the kids can dance to it if they want as well. 10/10
this is the second song from cwnn on radio paradise that has made me stop what I was doing, listen, and just say "wow, that was beautiful".  I think the shock of not knowing the band or having ever heard of them outside of radio paradise plays into it a bit but still, wow.

I like you.
Only three simple chords, but the third chord comes as unexpected and it looks like it had never been found by anyone before. Can that be called genius?

kool to my ears
Gets a 7 just for piano and violin. Would be higher if the vocals matched the quality.
This one's a beauty.
Music for watching it snow outside though the lyrics imply a situation that wasn't much fun.
Very  enjoyable.  Nice vibe for the evening.  Love all the depth!
nice music at the end of a work day, beautiful voice    peace people

And no Billy Joel.  Every one's a winner on RP!

Pleasantly different.
Almost sounds as if Brian Eno is singing.
If you like this, have a listen to David Bridie and also his former band My Friend The Chocolate Cake...

How about a cold, rainy November night, when the inevitability of winter has come to nest for a long while?

Sounds like D,C,G on the piano work (kinda like "Sweet Home Alabama" on Valium) and the chord progression is nicely used...  good mood-making in this strange song, and it is well-produced...  love it...

Odd kind of song. Really didn't like it the first time hearing it but seems to be growing on me. 2>4
