About Eleanor Collides

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I remember the first song I ever learned to play on guitar. I was about 15 and It was 'All Together Now' by the Beatles. I got the chords from a Beatles songbook and the chords from a Hal Leonard chord dictionary. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Depeche Mode, Violator Hole, Live Through This R.E.M., Green (Remastered 2013) Wonderful albums that I come back to again and again. These three have had a huge influence on the formation of my musical tastes and my own song-writing. All are packed with fantastic tracks. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Lifeboats” Lifeboats is a song about loneliness and alienation, about feeling alone in a city full of people. I had been experimenting with writing in different modes, dorian in this case. I am drawn to sounds that are in between major and minor.
