My Song Recommendations

A song recommendation every day (be warned, they will probably all be weird folky songs that no one will have heard of or want to bother with.) Hozier, Sara Bareilles, Hudson Taylor, Passenger, Ben Howard, Bear's Den, Vance Joy will all probably be featured quite heavily.

Basically this is just my response to how much I love certain songs and writers at the moment and how I listen to something and get that "weird evangelical zeal, and become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans [hear it]".

Enjoy!

27. Day 26 - Wonderful Unknown

 

 

Wonderful Unknown by Ingrid Michaelson:

Oh, let me wear your overcoat, my bones are super chill and all the ponies have gone home
Oh, walking through Manhattan with the ache from last night's smile still smarting up from my toes

Here we go, dancing on our own, inside this house that we have never known, never known
Here we go, going in alone into the dark and wonderful unknown, let us go, let us go

Oh, we make bread on Sundays and the little ones are climbing up the walls, up the walls
Oh, nothing lasts forever but the sound of love astounds me every time that it calls

Here we go, dancing on our own, inside this house that we have never known, never known,
Here we go, going in alone into the dark and wonderful unknown, let us go, let us go

In the best way, you'll be the death of me
In the best way, you'll be the death of me
In the best way, you'll be the death of me
In the best way

Oh, got your father's wristwatch on, the one your mother gave him when they thought the world won't end,
Oh, we will be there one day with a smile and nothing more to say goodbye to a friend

Here we go, dancing on our own, inside this house that we have never known, never known
Here we go, going in alone, into the dark and wonderful unknown, let us go let us go

Here we go, dancing on our own, inside this house that we have never known, never known
Here we go, going in alone, into the dark and wonderful unknown, let us go, let us go
In the best way you'll be the death of me [x7]

 

I am so grateful to the Jodi Picoult and daughter Samantha Van Leer blog for reminding me of my love for this singer. Some of her songs aren't really my cup of tea but some of them really are and this is one of those mellow and haunting songs that I really, really love.

It is taken from the 2014 album 'Lights Out'. Sorry that today's recommendation is several hours later than usual, I didn't have time before school today. Anyway, better late than never!
