The second edition of our „Songs of the Week“ brings back some classics. From Pink Floyd to Earth, Wind & Fire, these bands are definitely no strangers to anyone. Additionally we featured tracks by Twenty One Pilots, Boards Of Canada and our guest Freddie Dickson (Freddie Dickson @ Kaffeehaus, St. Gallen). This weeks song were selected by members from our finance & HR, marketing and sponsoring teams. As always there’s a Spotify playlist at the end of this article, follow it to get our „Songs of the Week“ directly to your phone, tablet or whatever device you’re using Spotify on.
Freddie Dickson – Fuel [Singer/Songwriter]
„Panic Town“ is the name of Freddies debut album. Even though St. Gallen probably won’t panic when he visits us on the 28th of March, you can expect a amazing concert in an intimate atmosphere. In the meantime listen to his new single „Fuel“ down below!
Pink Floyd – Wish you were here [Rock] (John Gallacher)
The world famous title song of the bands‘ 1975 album processes the breakdown of Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett (like most of the album). Powerful acoustic chords mixed with David Gilmour’s iconic voice, make this song an absolute classic!
Earth, Wind & Fire – September [Funk] (Awa Moamar)
You probably already heard the lines „Do you remember, the 21st night of September?“ at some point in your life. The well known 1978 classic is a catchy tune and was swirling around Awa’s mind for days. Don’t be mad at us if it catches yours aswell ;).
Kakkmaddafakka – Make The First Move [Indie-Pop] (Thomas Tarantini)
Their first album „Down to Earth“ was smashed by critics, nevertheless these guys kept pushing and gained attention because of their crazy stage show. „Make the First Move“ refers encourages the (male) listener to make a move on the girl he likes, otherwise he’s going to be lonely when he’s older. Even though you probably shouldn’t read too much into the lyrics, this songs makes the crowd go nuts at any concert/festival.
Twenty One Pilots – Trees [Alternative] (Lars Ochsner)
This is one of the older songs of the two-man band, which recently won a grammy for their performance „Stressed Out“. A deep message, accompanied by a energy loaded background is probably not a combination you’d expect. Still, these guys seem to be able to master this challenge and show us, why they deserved one of the golden gramophones.
