Song Of The Day

Death Cab for Cutie – “Transatlanticism”

I’m gearing up to take the mvyradio Hot Seat on Monday night. I’ve decided to give in to my winter blues. I tend to get a little down during the wintertime and especially this month, I’ve been in a bit of a funk. I know I’m not alone, and I’ve decided to embrace this feeling and turn it into an hour of comforting music.

“Sometimes when one is sad, it consoles one to hear a sad song”
-Thomas Hardy

I’ll be playing songs that epitomize feelings like loneliness, sadness, and bleakness… songs that give off the feeling of the cold, gray, damp New England winter. Right away I know that the Death Cab for Cutie album, Transatlanticism will be included in this Hot Seat. In my opinion, this is the ultimate winter album. I may not play the over 7 minute title track, but here it is to give you the full effect.
