My Favorite Song

I'm going to attempt to do this memey thing called 30 Days of Song. I will not post this every day, because oh-my-pants-I'm-bored-already. Instead I'll post once or twice a week, as I feel like. So there. I am unrepentantly stealing this from Jen O. at My Tornado Alley. She rocks. I'm not sure if she stole it from somewhere, but here we go. 

My Favorite Song

I am a listmaker. I even wrote a song about it once to the tune of "Matchmaker." You know, because I'm that kind of crazy. And so, I could easily give you my Top 10 songs, but my Favorite Song of All Time... Wow. I'm, um, just not sure I can tell you that.

So, I'm gonna go with my favorite song today. Just today. Tomorrow I'll have a totally different answer. Today, my favorite song is "White Blank Page," by Mumford and Sons.

I have this current obsession with Irish-ish music and I discovered Mumford and Sons through my Pogues Channel on Pandora. (The Pogues are Irish, Mumford and Sons is London-based.) And, I'd like to marry one of them, whenever is convenient. I love almost every single song I've heard from them and I can listen to this sad/mad song all day long. It makes my heart hurt and I love that in a song.

Other Mumford songs of note: The Cave and Little Lion Man

Mumford & Sons is the kind of music I like to categorize as "kick to the stomach" it's so good. I love all of their songs, but there is one, "Roll Away Your Stone" that I put in that category. The way they finish the song is like waves crashing. I love it.
