44.“It’s Okay” by Land of Talk (2008)

This tune is sad and incredibly soulful, oozing with a detached disappointment that seems to fit perfectly with the lyrics. It’s a winner because it so perfectly captures a specific feeling with both the vocal delivery and the bending and sighing of the lead guitar. “Drive All Night” by The Boss has this same sort of feeling, Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are captures a feeling and gets it on screen. It’s not easy to do, but Lizzy nailed this one. Check it out the studio version and the live version.
