January Song of the Month: Blue Lining, White Trenchcoat

Mando Diao - Blue Lining, White Trenchcoat
Mando Diao - Blue Lining, White Trenchcoat

I was going to skip January, but then remembered this Mando Diao tune Blue Lining, White Trenchcoat.

This track begins at what sounds like a rail station and rips right into a piano driven frenzy.  Later on the song breaks down and then comes back together.

The lyrics are a lock often ending with the call for the blue lining, white trench coat:

“I’ve got my Armageddon boots, brown shades and brand new leather suit. Blue lining, blue lining, blue lining, white trench coat.

and

“I’m burning, like a combat zone, so sharp my senses cutting stone Blue lining, blue lining blue lining white trench coat”

This LP went on sale mid February, but for some reason is not available on Amazon.com or iTunes.
