Song of the Day #3,627: ‘Incredible Machine’ – Sugarland

I really enjoyed Sugarland’s 2008 album Love on the Inside, probably more than I should have.

Honestly, I’m kind of afraid to revisit it. Will I react to my 2008 musical self the way I cringe when I see old photographs? Why on earth did I wear my hair so long? Why on earth did I listen to this?

Or maybe I’d still dig it.

I do know that I own one other Sugarland album, The Incredible Machine, and I didn’t like that one right from the start.

Here’s the title track, which features lead singer Jennifer Nettles at her most grating.

[Verse 1]
Feels like I’m flying
Wings made of light
Brand new and shining
Like a shot rung out through the night

A heart that beats an incredible machine
Made of blood, and love, and hope, and lust, and steam


[Verse 2]
Feels like I’m floating
Weightless in flight
Light that’s exploding
As a soul and gravity fight



Lifted higher mercury skies above
Water, fire burning a sight of love

    Odd pronunciation of “Calling,” but otherwise not such a bad song.

    Thank you for introducing me to another song by a band/group I don’t know much about. This song certainly has one of the most minimal choruses ever written (including the odd pronunciation mentioned in your previous comment…)
