    High, higher then the sun is a line, that fits the High & low them like a glove, in my opinion. This is my take on Elevation by U2.

    In the Aeroplane Over The Sea, by Neutral Milk Hotel. I've only recently discovered this 1998 album, but I am enjoying it.

    Aeroplanes go high, if you're lucky. Not that "high" necessarily implies a happy song of course - this song is mostly reminding us that we're all going to die. Still, we'll all be laughing when we meet on a cloud (oh yes, that's high up too!).



    On a baritone 8 string, with a bit of harmonica and keyboard, and a tenor ukulele too.

    It's only just occurred to me that this is a curious spelling of "aeroplane" for an American band. I guess it just scans better...

    So Chris and Del threw the gauntlet down last night with this one and I'm only too happy to oblige.

    It's a bit of a unique White Stripes song as, for a man famous for his minimalist production and arrangement Jack White kind of threw the kitchen sink at this one and the end result is an absolutely ridiculous song. I think it's a far superior riff to Seven Nation Army.

    Anyway, I've tried to capture elements of this. If left a couple cues about the high pitched merits of this one, but the biggest of all is I played the highest note on my electric uke, the 19th fret of the A string, then bent it higher. Its not quite on the pitch shifter wizardry that Jack White uses but it'll still set all dogs within a five mile radius off. You've been warned.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    And here is one from your co-host.
    This is a cover of a James Blunt song. It has become somewhat unfashionable to admit to liking his music, but I’m not ashamed to say that I really like his stuff. This one fits my theme because of the title and also because I was at the upper reaches of my limited vocal range in places here.
    And thanks to all contributors to the season so far - some really good entries on the playlist already!

    Here's a "high" song, although I think the singer is feeling low in this one. I don't know why youtube put that big border around it.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    here is a homemade song for del and his half of this week's theme...

    low emotional state
    singing about as low as my voice can go
    over what i think are the lowest-sounding chords i can play? E and Em on the bari
    and... er... sitting on the floor to play, which, given i don't have a basement, is about as low as i can go

    "feeling low"
