1. Eels - Today Is The Day
"Today is the day that you see me
As a man who will always change
Who knows the only things to count on
Are life is quick, and life is strange"
And The Metaphorical Boat's favourite song of 2018 goes to a song from one of our favourite all-time bands, joining previous year-end chart toppers like The Vaccines, Bears Den & Public Service Broadcasting. "Today Is The Day" is a song that falls on the 'hopeful' side of the Eels musical catalogue, and is a joyous, uplifting song that really perks you up at the time when you really need it. The music video's pretty great as well, it's a little ball of sunshine, in embedded form.
