No. 8: Somewhere only we know – Keane/Glee

This song is so amazing! I like both the original version and the glee version because of different reasons.

I like the original because of the (somewhat boring) constant crotchets (quater notes) on the piano because, for some reason, the chord changes and the fast(er) tempo of the piano compared to the singing, gets me into a state of mind where I feel like I live in a movie and that I can do anything in the world (yes, I’m one of those people who imagine I’m a movie star sometimes).

On the other hand I also really like the Glee-version

Partly because of my kind-of-crush on Blaine and his voice (if only he wasn’t gay and fictional) and partly because I am a sucker for vocal music (multiple voices) as I’m not just a singer myself, but a choir singer. I also like how the strings are such a big part of the final product.

I also like the lyrics in general. I think they’re so adorable. The can be interpreted in different ways, both positively and negatively, but to me the song is romantic.

Which version do you like better?
