§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: Fool's Gold

{Song #23 « Song #24 » Song #25}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

[In the interest of meeting TheBigHenry's challenge to respond to his picks with a musical offering, I present this companion piece to Song #23 as a post rather than a comment, which doesn't allow embedded video. ~tristein]

Song #24 is Fool's Gold sung by The Stone Roses.

The Roses' entire debut album became something of an obsession for me while I was living in London working and studying at The London School of Economics and Political Science, a period of time I can best characterize as my angst-fueled twenties. The Roses' music felt like the antidote to angst as I wandered the streets of London, one of the greatest cities in the world for walking. This song, from the album The Stone Roses, graces my iPod as the lead-off track to my 10K playlist.
