311 – “Speakeasy”
I’ll always have a special place in my heart for 311. I went through a long, obsessive phase with them… listening to ONLY their music, especially in the summertime. Their latest album, Uplifter (2009) really didn’t thrill me, but I did like some songs on Don’t Tread On Me (2005), especially “Speakeasy”. It’s catchy and fun (of course) and it has such a sweet, romantic sentiment to it:
“I’ve searched for something to compare you to,
I’ve thought long and hard for a simile true.
Now I’m suddenly aware…
end the quest – you’re beyond compare.”
