The Nobility of Pop

Christian Falk ft. Robyn and Ola Salo - "Dream On"

A simple pop song that seems to lift its text from one of Jesus' sermons on the mount. It addresses itself to thugs, bad men, punks, thieves, pigs, snitches, junkies - tells them that for one night they won't be persecuted, double-crossed, lying in a gutter. The percussion lopes gently and puts me in mind of an orchestra of spoons mixed with gentle pops. Quite extraordinary. Supported by warm synthesiser notes that see-saw across the octaves, decorated with dreamy treble-y burbles. A beautiful promise of hope.
