Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

It hits me so hard, this song...it's the perfect mood setter for a pensive evening.


can almost hear rollercoasters see sailboats in the sea
hear noise and screaming
weaving in and out of
happy music box sounds

Re: Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

that's also my favourite one of the record. i can easily listen to this 10 times in a row and it's still haunting me hard.

Re: Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

This has grown to be my favourite song as well. It sums up the whole album in a way. The string arrangements fit in perfectly.

Another here who agrees! Such a great track. Moorestown was my favourite for a while, but it's definitely Tonight in Bilbao now. The ending is one of the most beautiful parts I've ever heard

Re: Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

I just went back and listened to April again yesterday. For me it's tonight the sky. There's one part when he does the "oceans and big clouds" line that he varies the melody just slightly that kills me.

Re: Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

Yeah every album has an epic and this is April's to add to Duk Koo Kim and perhaps The Leaning Tree. I'm still a huge fan of Unlit Hallway and Blue Orchids and to be honest most other tracks too.

Re: Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

I agree. Its the best song. Although, I think Moorestown is the most listenable song on the album. Obviously, it's one of Mark's favorite songs because of how many live versions he's released. That along with Salvador Sanchez and Carry Me Ohio.

Re: Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

I think it's the best track on the album too.  I think that first verse just guts me "Gave what I had, gave my heart though I was broken and fallen apart".  Then those string breakdowns in the middle before the coda.  Absolute genius.

My runner-ups are Unlit Hallway (so peaceful, and love Will Oldham's backing vocal) and Like The River ("I have all these memories I don't know what for....", brilliant verse.  And the backing vocals too)

Re: Tonight in Bilbao is the best song on April

Tonight In Bilbao, Lost Verses, Moorestown and Blue Orchids are my favourites from April.

Some of them, like Lucky Man, Heron Blue and Like the River I tend to prefer the live versions of. Its a superb album though, made even nicer by Mark's silver marker pen!
