My new favorite song
May 27, 2009 § 2 Comments
When I get exposed to new music, I tend to obsess over it for a while. I went into a Jason Mraz phase earlier this year, and I have gone through a John Mayer phase just about every time he comes out with a new album.
I know I’ve mentioned them before, but I still can’t get over this song by my latest musical obsession, the Avett Brothers.
Emily is totally sick of hearing this song, because I’m playing it so much. (That’s the way it normally goes when I’m in my phases.) I’m not sure what it is about this song, or the Avett Brothers in general, that is so appealing. The lyrics are incredible, and they harmonize really well — Em says it’s because they’re family, and that family members (who can sing) can always harmonize and sing well together. (Plus, most of the time, these guys look like Civil War Re-enactment Guys, which is funny.)
Anyways, here’s my attempt to make my musical obsession your musical obsession. Do you have any current musical obsessions I should check out?
