What I’m Listening To

Mumford & Sons—The Cave and Little Lion Man. Abigail Washburn—Nobody’s Fault But Mine and City of Refuge.

I can’t stop playing these tracks.

Know how couples in love pick a song that has special meaning during their early days and years and dance to it at their wedding? I think couples should add a second song to capture the ethos of things five, ten, thirty, fifty years down the road.

I’ve approached the GalPal with the perfect “second song” and I’m happy to report she’s accepted.

Mumford & Sons—Little Lion Man. The chorus:

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?
Didn’t I?

    Much more than a “touch” of vulgarity we readers are not expecting to see in your writing.

    However, I love the concept – You’ve still got me thinking about whatever my “second song” might be – May I live long enough to figure it out.

    My problem – great work!

  2. Some of my favorites! I love Abigail Washburn… have you ever listening to the Wailin’ Jennys? Since I started learning mandolin a few years ago, I’ve really taken a liking to the folk sound. You might check them out, if you like Abigail.

    • No, I haven’t listened to the Wailin’ Jennys. It’s weird how all four of those tracks have a blue-grass element to them. Despite eclectic tastes, I don’t listen to much blue grass. I do like a lot of female folk and was introduced to AW through a recent LATimes article. What an interesting person. And I caught M&S on the Grammys while bonding with my daughter.
