A song a day: Wire - Please Take
I wrote about the latest Wire record Red Barked Tree earlier in the year and I'm happy to say that it has continued to captivate me since first hearing it. Matt wrote an excellent review of it here but the one song I've listened to more than any other is Please Take. I think that's because at its heart it's a glorious pop song and if I get the chance to see them live, I can't wait to sing along to the chorus 'Fuck off out of my face/You take up too much space.' Wire are on my bucket list of live bands to see before I die - here's hoping it's soon (seeing the band, not my death).
