Song of the Day, August 6: Let’s Take A Trip Together by Morphine

MorphineTripToday’s song is Let’s Take A Trip Together from Morphine’s magical second album, Cure For Pain. It’s an invitation to get away from it all, asking a lover to be a companion in escape. Singer Mark Sandman turns in an eerie, filtered vocal that adds a strange, claustrophobic quality to the delivery. The resulting tension heightens the need for the trip, resulting in a highlight on a very strong album.

Enjoy this great song today.
