Listen: Camera Obscura – “Razzle Dazzle Rose” [2006]

By and far the best song named after a Crayola crayon, “Razzle Dazzle Rose” is the magnificent closer to one of my all-time favorite albums, Camera Obscura’s 2006 record Let’s Get Out of This Country. It perfectly toes the line of being sad and happy at the same time. Very much a movement-based song with driving percussion and guitarists, plus Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth vocals leading us along with a gust of wind to fill our sails.

If I ever hear this song performed in real life (which is unlikely, as CO’s only reunion show coming up is on the Belle & Sebastian cruise) I will cry my stupid eyes out. The same could be said with a lot of songs on this record, but this one especially will put me right into a big pile of feelings. Just so beautiful and majestic. Let’s Get Out of This Country is an album that everyone should listen to at least once in their lifetime.
