The The – This is the Day

I’m a big The The fan, especially of the album Mind Bomb.  Anyone that is interested in extremely intelligent pop music should get that album.  (Being a huge Johnny Marr fan doesn’t hurt as he plays on that album and the following album Dusk.  Don’t be mistaken though, The The is Matt Johnson’s show and his lyrics distinct ear for arrangements are really what separates The The from other musical acts.)  However, the song This is the Day, from their album Soul Mining, is a musical masterpiece.  I love the use of accordion over melodic British pop music.  It’s a unique combination.
