SongoftheDay: RESUSCITATION OF THE YEAR by THE FLATLINERS
For The Flatliners I’m picking Resuscitation Of The Year. I love how it starts with a calm intro then kicks into a nice and fast punk rock song. I’m a big fan of Chris Cresswell’s vocals. He’s got a great range. I like how he mixes the singing and screaming. He flows through the two very well. The lyrics are great too.
‘The skies of mine are clear and for that I’m forever in your debt, my dear friends. I’m coming back to life again. Resuscitation of the year.’
I had the winter blues pretty bad last winter and kinda lost my mind for a bit. But through that I found out who my true friends were and I know who’s really got my back. I connected instantly with this song when I first heard it. This entire album is amazing. – MATT
