Just sharing the (what I feel) essentials of one of my favourite bands. Theres more songs that are great to listen to.

Also check out: Spies, Shiver, Talk, The Hardest Part, X&Y etc.

I've always been fascinated by the lyrics of their songs, how they get their inspiration. Their songs always manage to stop me from hitting that "Next Song" button.

"Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know you know I love you so
You know I love you so"

"Come up to meet you
tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I've set you apart"

"And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
Well, that's where I belong
And you belong with me
And I could write it down
or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
Or swallowed in the sea"

"I took my love down to violet hill
There we sat in snow
All that time she was silent still
So if you love me
Won't you let me know?"

I'm sure you'll find something that you like.

Update: I have complied an updated list with Mylo Xyloto tracks here
