The Top 10 Spoon Songs & a Band Retrospective

#8 Change My Life

After Spoon were dropped by major label Elektra they picked up the pieces and moved to Merge and came out for the better. Love Ways is an EP and the first release for the group showcasing their more eclectic sound. The first track especially, “Change My Life”, features a haunting melody with some impressive guitar work and noise that’d come back later on in Gimme Fiction. The vocals don’t start until a minute and a half into the song where Daniel asks to, “change my life”, and things get more chaotic from there.

This is where Spoon starts to really show it’s soul.
