Song of the Day: After Glow by Foals

Back to some more songs with After something titles for this Friday morning! First time ever posting Foals but I’m going to say today Total Life Forever the second album is the best or at least my own fave of theirs! I did see them live around this time so that’s most likely the main reason, then somehow missed their next Aussie tour but they’re a great wicked live band. Plus it’s been a little while since featuring the last Pommy act in my SOFD. Off course, you could say the Foals have vague references to both 90’s Oasis’ Live Forever and Nirvana’s Nevermind with that album title and album cover artwork. Releasing it in 2010 and After Glow was track number eight, one of a few longer tracks on this cool album. I never really check out the couple of albums, non double album their put out last year so maybe it’s a good time to do that right now? Remembering again to include the lyrics:

I know I could not last very long at all
Without you here to break my fall
I know I could not stand alone for very long
Without you there to take my call
‘Cause you were better than whatever came before
Before you ran out and left me on the 100th floor
Get out, and go and find everyone you cared for
They, won’t be there to see tomorrow
Get out, don’t forget everything you cared for
For it, won’t be nothing more tomorrow
No I could not do the things I did before
Leave you waiting there, by that open door
You were better than whatever came before
Without you here and my heart broken to the core
Get out, and go and find everyone you cared for
They, won’t be there to see tomorrow
Get out, don’t forget everything you cared for
For it, won’t be nothing more tomorrow
No I could not stand to be alone for long
There’s something missing in the ever afterglow
You were better than whatever came before
Without you here to save me, to save me from the dark
Get out, and go and find everyone you cared for
They, won’t be there to see tomorrow
Get out, don’t forget everything you cared for
For it, won’t be nothing more tomorrow

    1. Oh right, right! i never check out the new non-double album/s of last year but maybe, it’s good time to do that now? So if you like them that much, gonna ask what’s your fave Foals song/s? Why not tell me your fave album by them too? 🙂

  1. I’m glad you asked! I like everything I’ve ever heard by them, but my favorite song is “Mountain At My Gates” from my favorite album of theirs “What Went Down”, which I think is one of the 20 best albums of the last decade. Every song on it is fantastic. My second favorite album would probably be “Holy Fire”. My favorite songs after MAMG are “My Number”, “Albatross”, “What Went Down”, “Birch Tree” and the epic “Knife In the Ocean”.
