The Weepies – “They’re In Love, Where Am I?”

I’ve been doing a lot of listening to my favorite albums of 2010, trying to put them in order on my Best Of list, and I came upon this song from the album, Be My Thrill. It has such a gorgeous and simple melody… and the words combined with Deb Talan’s one of a kind voice just gets me every time.

“Lovers walk two by two,
doing things lovers do
They’re in love, where am I?
I see them on my way home,
how I hate to be alone
They’re in love, where am I?

I guess I have to hope
that today the sun will shine
And maybe tomorrow you’ll be mine

Until that day I will wait
and watch the lovers on the lake
They’re in love, where am I?
I walk alone on lover’s lane,
past the kisses in the rain
They’re in love, where am I?
They’re in love, where am I?”

The Weepies

Bettye Lavette has been making records since 1962 and in the past 5 years she’s finally been getting the attention she deserves. Her new album of cover songs is simply stunning. Arcade Fire will soon release the long-awaited follow-up to Neon Bible (2007) and it sounds quite promising. Chris Thile (Nickel Creek) is onto something special with his ‘beyond bluegrass’ band, the Punch Brothers. And it sounds like The Weepies will put out more contagious, thought-provoking pop/folk later this summer. Listen to clips of all four artists:
