Last night LCD Soundsystem played their last show EVER. As a quintessential New York band I fell in love with them when I first moved to this grand city. I’ve seen them play three times and seen James Murphy DJ countless more and when you see LCD live it’s always like its New Year’s Eve.
I went to see them play on Wednesday at one of their four finale shows at Terminal Five. And I noticed this show was a little different than the other times I’ve seen them. They were giving everything on stage and leaving their sweat and music to live on with their fans. I’m not goinna lie realizing this could be the last time I see them (until they decide to reunite in 3-4 years) I got a little choked up. It’s definitely the end of an era and for me it was a little bit of losing my youth.
So, as a tribute my top five LCD songs.
5. Dance yourself clean
“Break me into bigger pieces
So some of me is home with you”
4. All I Want
“Wait for the day you come home from the lonely part
And look for the girl who has put up with all of your shit
You never have needed anyone for so long”
“Everybody makes mistakes,
But I feel alright when I come undone
You’re not not making me wait,
But it seems alright as long as something’s happening”
2. New York I love you but you’re bringing me down
“New York, I Love You
But you’re bringing me down”
“But you’re still the one pool
Where I’d happily drown”
1. All my friends
“And if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up
and I still don’t wanna stagger home.
Then it’s the memory of our betters
that are keeping us on our feet.
You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan,
and the next five years trying to be with your friends again.”
