Since it’s my first post back at this gig I really tried my hardest to not pick something depressing. I know Jes thinks I only listen to depressing music (we did go to Bon Iver together), but it’s really not the truth. I guess when you live in a city where it rains for about 45980 days a year you just find yourself gravitating to more mellow musical selections.
So this week I am offering Vance Joy’s From Afar. And shit, I’m sorry. This song is actually super depressing. And the video is even worse. But I think it’s a legit choice, and if you like it his other music isn’t too bad so maybe you’ll want to try that out as a pick me up.
Anyway, getting back to the song – it’s about unrequited love, something I’m sure we can all (unfortunately) relate to. Just watch the video to get the full gist.
Um, yes. That is all around depressing - but a good shot of reality to all the dreamers out there. Nicely done. Welcome back.
