Hello: Say Hello To The Angels

Interpol: Say Hello To The Angels


 Hello.  Not the most interesting word in the world, of course.  Over-used by necessity.  And a real challenge for the humble music blogger whose assigned task is to locate a song that has managed to use the word without resorting to cliché or anodyne sentiment.

Interpol, of course, have never knowingly plumped for empty sentiment or Lionel Ritchie-esque cheese.  Those angels they would like you to greet aren't just hanging around at the local coffee shop waiting to buy you a skinny latte. The song's meaning is open to interpretation, but the menace, the malice behind the words really is not.
