One of my all-time favorite melodies by this iconic group. The subtle synths of “Soft Shock” sound the way it feels when the pain of love shyly enters your heart. I love the subtlety of the high, fuzzy synth getting louder toward the end. Karen’s voice on the ooohs can soothe like ice cream soothes a 6-year-old. The song makes me feel free and renewed, like a young traveler enjoying a summer in Rome.
Favorite part: the drums going nuts at the end.
