Television – Marquee Moon
I fell in love with the guitar on the song 'Marquee Moon'. Just how it kind of stops at the end and then starts again. There's this guitar solo producing beautiful melodies and after that you get the rhythm guitar playing arpeggios in the higher branch. That's such a dreamlike moment. It's quite a long song, but it never gets boring.
