  • I wouldn't know where to start
    "Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
    Be still "My Foolish Heart"
    Don't ruin this on me

    A few months after dropping "Nina Cried Power," a song inspired by 1960s protest singers, Hozier travels further back into the 20th century. "Almost (Sweet Music)" finds the Irishman paying homage to a bygone era by seamlessly weaving into the lyrics the titles of some classic 1930s and '40s standards.
  • The jazz staples that Hozier namechecks on the folky groover are:

    "Stella by Starlight"
    "That Was My Heart"
    "Night And Day"
    "Sweet Music"
    "In the Dark"
    "My Foolish Heart"
    "Let's Get Lost"
    "Let The Good Times Roll"
    "Smoke Rings"
    "Paper Doll"
    "It Don't Mean a Thing"
    "The Very Thought of You"
    "Am I Blue?"
    "A Love Supreme"
    "I Get Along Without You Very Well"
    "Russian Lullabies."
