I have tendency to first like a song because of the melody, then only pay attention to the lyrics after many listens. Then sometimes, a song does a great job of grabbing your attention right away with some powerful lyrics. This song, Tyler Childer’s Feathered Indians was one of those: (thanks, Nora)
If I’d known she was religious Then I wouldn’t have came stoned To the house of such an angel Too fucked up to get back home
To compensate for the lack of posts, lets keep a streak going. I like this Dixie Chicks song, Cowboy Take Me Away fine enough, but Lissie giving it the Rick-Rubin-stripped-down treatment has gotten it locked in my head for much longer than I would like.
