Andrew Bird is a tremendously talented singer and songwriter who marches to his own quirky but fabulously poetic and unique beat. From the first moment i heard Andrew Bird’s songs, I was hooked. His work is nothing short of beautiful and original, and his music grows more powerful and poetic with each turn. Here is a look at five of his best songs yet, and why years after I was introduced to his music, I am still a diehard fan.
One of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching pieces of music I’ve ever heard, period, is “Lull” by Andrew Bird. It is as if Andrew Bird poured his heart and soul out onto a piece of staff paper, and “Lull” is what we received. The song is absolutely gorgeous and I’ve never heard anything quite like it before. Additionally, the music video for “Lull” is just as stunning as the audio track, and is definitely worth checking out.
Another song by Andrew Bird that immediately caught my attention is “Imitosis.” The song is quirky, poetic and completely original. The soulful quality to this song is completely addictive. For added entertainment value, check out the music video for “Imitosis;” it is just as quirky and fun as the song, and I would expect nothing less from Andrew Bird.
One of my favorite songs by Andrew Bird is “Plasticities.” The song has an amazing quality to it; the melody is simply beautiful, lyrics are poetic, and overall, this piece is divinely original. Additionally, the song is perfectly paced, varying in mood from soft and mellow to excited and jubilant.
The song by Andrew Bird that trumps all others is “Armchairs.” The song is an emotional rollercoaster starting out with a beautiful instrumental build-up, combined with sad, meaningful lyrics, Bird’s fabulous voice. This song shows Andrew Bird at his finest.
Another incredible song by Andrew Bird that caught my attention immediately is “Night Sky.” The song has a lovely tone to it, with imaginative lyrics, strumming guitar notes, and more. Andrew Bird’s voice is at its finest in this tune, and the package as a whole is nothing short of breath-taking.
