Talk about a niche category!
Perhaps it’s ironic that notes heading down the scale can sometimes raise my spirits.
In any event, these 5 descending/made-in-the-UK melody lines will brighten my day every time.
5. Keane, Bedshaped (at 4:19)
The closing piano line, a fitting end to a fine debut record.
4. Blur, Best Days (at 1:38)
It somehow keeps descending for several octaves!
3. The Libertines, Death on the Stairs (at 2:45)
Reminds me of the big Pas de Deux from the Nutcracker.
2. Duran Duran, Ordinary World (lead pattern)
As I said when I reviewed Rio, I’m no longer shy about liking Duran Duran…
1.The Cure, Just Like Heaven (lead pattern)
…and I have never, and will never, be remotely timid about my Robert Smith adoration.
