September 11 retrospective: "Jueves" de La Oreja de Van Gogh

When I think of the song that most speaks to me in terms of remembering the 9/11 attacks and the terrible losses there, this is the one that comes to mind. It's actually a remembrance of a similar event in Spain, the March 11, 2004 terrorist attack on the Madrid subway. To me, it strikes just the right tone of sadness and tragedy but at the same time manages to be affirming of life and hope.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
