One of the awesome benefits of having your own blog is sharing stuff that you dig. This is my favorite song right now and I pretty much just listen to it over and over all day long. Remember the show Ally McBeal? In one episode her therapist recommends that she get her own “theme song”. I like that idea, so here it is. I’m not sure if it’s the galloping melody in a unsettling minor key or their siren like harmonies or the tapestry of the dream like video or the raw girl power or just the stirring lyrics themselves. . . which are filled with regret, remorse and worry, but it’s an ethereal tribute to hope and we could all use a little more of that these days. I present to you, First Aid Kit and their gorgeous song, My Silver Lining. Enjoy.
“I’ve woken up in a hotel room, my worries as big as the moon, having no idea who or what or where I am”
Getting caught up on your posts! Love First Aid Kit and love this song. You can hear huge Townes Van Zandt influences in a lot of their music. Have you seen them sing Simon & Garfunkel’s “America” with Paul and Edie sitting in the front row? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa3xOakbGTo
