The darkly sweet, even blasphemous "Set Me On Fire" by Jon Magnusson

Out of Sweden, the song Set Me On Fire by Jon Magnusson is darkly sweet even blasphemous around the edges. Press notes reveal that the song was written to challenge the idea that there is an inherent meaning to life that can be found via religions or any other ideology but instead asks us to create meaningfulness to a life that can otherwise feel empty. Spartan electric guitars with cascading pearly notes, stoic drums and bass, a glockenspiel, a Juno-synth, a big swaying chorus and a lighter near by. What more can you ask for?
