The mountainous pile of musical lies is soaring to the stratosphere. I just added a handful of new songs — each with a cool and appropriately deceitful music video — to my definitive audio-visual playlist all about lies, lying and liars. There are certainly lots of liars, falsehoods and self-deception in this group of songs. Today’s favorite is Truth is a Beautiful Thing by London Grammar, a spare and wonderfully moody track.
This week’s other additions to the Post*factua!ly post-truth playlist include: Lies by CHVCHES; Every Time You Lie by Demi Lovato; Truth is a Beautiful Thing by London Grammar; Lies by Korn; and, Lie to Me by 5SOS.
This continues my plan to catalog, for the first time in once place, every song or piece of music dedicated to lies, lying and liars.
As you might have guessed with such a rich and deep swamp of human deceit to sift through it will take me a while. So, please bear with me and enjoy the musical misinformation in the meantime. No songs about “fake news” or “alternative facts” yet. I’m sure it will only be a matter of time — please let me know if you hear one.
