LYRICS: The National

“This Is The Last Time”

I’ve been revisiting the latest album from The National for the past few days. If you haven’t listened to Trouble Will Find Me, it’s definitely work checking out…and it’s got a neat vibe for this time of year. Track #7 really beautifully describes the concept of returning to someone (or something) that’s less than healthy for you…something I think everyone can relate to.

“Oh, when I lift you up you feel
like a hundred times yourself.
I wish everybody knew
what’s so great about you. Oh,
but your love is such a swamp.
You don’t think before you jump,
and I said I wouldn’t get sucked in…

This is the last time.”

The National

“Wait For A Minute”

Here’s another track from the new tUnE-yArDs album Nikki Nack, which comes out on May 6th…as usual, Merrill Garbus treats us to an experimental sound like nothing else:

NEW: Rosanne Cash

“A Feather’s Not A Bird”

I’m so delighted with how much I’m enjoying the latest release from Rosanne Cash. It’s always nice when an artist you previously overlooked starts to really grab your attention. This second single from The River and The Thread has such a nice groove and a catchy hook:

SONG: Katie Herzig

“Way To The Future”

In anticipation of Katie Herzig’s new album, Walk Through Walls (officially out on Tuesday), I’ve been listening to her 2011 album, The Waking Sleep. This song, track #3, is SO EPIC. Love the strings and the beat…the BUILD of the song. Can’t stop listening to it:

LYRICS: John Mayer

“Wildfire”

Today, April 1st, turned out to be a beautiful sunny day on the island. Spring days like these make me instantly long for summer – and I know I’m not alone. As I was paying close attention to the lyrics of this John Mayer tune, I noticed it was the perfect anthem for summer romance…

“River’s strong you can’t swim inside it
We could string some lights up the hill beside it
Tonight the moon’s so bright
You could drive with your headlights out
‘Cause a little bit of summer’s what the whole year’s all about

You look fine, fine, fine
Put your feet up next to mine
We can watch that water line
Get higher and higher
Say, say, say
Ain’t it been some kind of day
You and me been catching on
Like a wildfire

Don’t get up just to get another
You can drink from mine
We can’t leave each other
We can dance with the dead
You can rest your head
On my shoulder if you want to
Get older with me
‘Cause a little bit of summer makes a lot of history”

John Mayer
