100 Greatest Songs of the Decade #76 The Boxer Rebellion – Caught By The Light

Released : 2011

Hail to the good guys: The Boxer Rebellion were chewed and spat out by the music industry faster than you can hype cycle, only to return and choose to be successful on their own terms by picking their battles and appreciating that their music could be the most powerful marketing tool.

Caught By The Light is the band in an Imperial career phase when belonging and connection were still valid qualities to entertainment. It’s part requiem, part ghost hunt, part confession, a song which speaks wisely to how being brave is much more than taking the straight ahead road signposted only with dollar bills.
