This month the CSFF Blog Tour is featuring Vanish, a supernatural thriller by Tom Pawlik. By a curious coincidence, 12 months ago we featured Vanished by Kathryn Mackel, during which tour I used up the good Vanish songs.
Thankfully, Mr Pawlik and the nice people at Tyndale must have foreseen this dilemma, and released the sequel to Vanish, Valley of the Shadow, last month. So sit back now and enjoy the Top Ten Valley Songs....
10. Bob James: Valley of the Shadows
Part Bond soundtrack, part acid jazz, it's about 10 minutes long and completely bonkers, but gets in by virtue of the title.
9. Cage the Elephant: Drones in the Valley
An American indie rock band in London...
8. Low: Lost Valley
Loving the slowcore anti-grunge sound.
7. Manic Street Preachers: Valley Boy
Exactly what you expect from the Manics, really.
6. DragonForce: Valley Of The Damned
Proper old skool rock music! Turn it up to 11!
5. The Orb: Valley
Because every top ten needs at least 7 1/2 minutes of quality electronica.
4. 4Lyn: Shadow Valley
And, wherever possible, some German nu metal.
3. Queen: Lily of the Valley
Time for a change of pace....
2. Fountains of Wayne: Valley Winter Song
Just because Fountains of Wayne are fantastic.
1. Skids: Into the Valley
And you can't beat a classic piece of pop punk awesomeness to finish.
All that remains now is to wait for Matthew to drop by and tell us what Norwegian death metal version of Valley of the Shadow I missed. Oh, and to visit the rest of the CSFF blog tour - the links are on the previous post.
