My last few entries have been all about politics. So I thought I changed it up a bit. Fear not, I will write something about the race speech by the senator of Illinois. I’m just letting marinate a bit. Moving on… a while back I shared whatever music I was obsessing about during that week. I haven’t stopped obsessing, just got lazy about blogging about it. So I thought, I would bring that back. Kinda like bringing sexy back, except not.
In the past 24 hours, I’ve been obsessing over a song titled “This Years Love” by David Gray. I had heard the song multiple times while watching Crazy/Beautiful. The movie is easily in my top 25. Don’t ask. What can I say? I have soft side or so I tell myself. I never looked up the song after watching the movie. This most likely because I usually don’t have computer in front of me when watching TV. However, yesterday, the dream app that is Pandora played the song for me and I’ve been listening to it ever since, except the the two hours to listen to Diane’s Rehm News round up.
To be honest, the lyrics are predictably sappy . They involves being hurt but then finding that right person after a long period of loneliness and hoping it lasts. Quite frankly, I don’t think you cant make all off without reading the lyrics. Despite its predictability and the overly sappy lyrics, it’s a beautiful song. The piano play in the grabs and hold your attention while Gray’s voice is soothing. The combination is just unbeatable. I found a youtube video. Take and judge for yourself. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. In the meantime, I ‘ll go back to listening to the song.
