The Stranglers – “Always The Sun” (1986)

The Stranglers – “Always The Sun” (1986)

One of the more meditative tracks here, the lyrics of “Always The Sun” aren’t always super concrete and revolve largely around the injustice in the world in broader terms. At one point, though, Hugh Cornwell gets more specific and asks “Who gets the job/ Of pushing the knob?/ That sort of responsibility, you draw straws for it if you’re mad enough.” Something about the song, relative to some other examples on this list, feels like an attempt at finding peace amidst all the darkness around them, though, the chorus working as a salve against the rest of the song’s searching.

Got a quote you love? Got an inspirational individual to celebrate? Favorite song? Leave it below and let me know how you want to be recognized (social media, blog, etc). Thank you!
