It just had to be this one. One of my favorite songs of all time. "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" is a tour de force of songwriting that has made me cry, made me laugh, made me contemplate the cosmos. It's made me write. It's made me wonder, "Why does he bring the horn section in so soon and why does it fit so perfectly? And is this the best bridge ever written?" In my opinion, it's a rare perfect song. The lyrics put it over the top, combing to be both hopeful and melancholic in a beautifully written way. It evokes an emotional response nearly every time I hear it and for that reason, it had to be this one. This just had to be my first song of the day.
