The Choice is Yours

Standard

I discovered Spotify last week and am currently experimenting with playlist.  Was just listening to the top hits playlist and this song:

Marcus Mumford on drums

Marcus Mumford on drums

And I came homeLike a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of darkness
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun

And I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
And relent
You forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way
Shake the excess

But I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh
And fix my eyes
That tethered mind free from the lies

But I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down
Know my ground

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

was followed by this:

"Singing"

“Singing”

I remember when we broke up the first time
Saying this is it, I’ve had enough, ’cause like
We haven’t seen each other in a month
When you, said you, needed space, what?
Then you come around again and say
Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change
Trust me, remember how that lasted for a day
I say, I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you

Oooh we called it off again last night
But Oooh, this time I’m telling you, I’m telling you
We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

Like ever…

I’m really gonna miss you picking fights
And me, falling for a screaming that I’m right
And you, will hide away and find your piece of mind with some indie record that’s much cooler than mine

Oooh you called me up again tonight
But Oooh, this time I’m telling you, I’m telling you
We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

I used to think, that we, were forever ever ever
And I used to say never say never
Huh, he calls me up and he’s like, I still love you
And i’m like, i’m just, I mean this is exhausting, you know
We are never getting back together, like ever

We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

We, oooh, oooh, not back together, we
Oh, getting back together

You go talk to your friends talk
And my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

Shoot me.

(Marcus Mumford is 25 years old.  Taylor Swift is 23.  It has nothing to do with age.)

  1. I will say this over and over, England puts out some brilliant artists. The US puts out crap. Sometimes Canada does too (Bieber, Richard Marx, the circus that is Celine Dion). There will always be people to buy their crap, though. It makes me ill.

  2. Considering that The Heavy and Mumford & Sons are both from England, I must agree. I was also startled by the number of British acts at the 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief. I mean, The Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton…those guys have about a hundred-fifty years of rock sewn up in their back pocket right there! The problem isn’t that the U.S. doesn’t have any worthwhile artists. It’s that the public buys crap, while the real talent goes to waste. Case in point, The Voice. Sure, Cassidee Pope had a fantastic voice. But she will blend in with the rest of the pretty faces with mediocre, cookie-cutter songs. On the other hand, Nicholas David had a completely unique style and voice that was like “wow!” Even though I loved him, Terry McDermott wasn’t even the best choice, unless you were fronting a 70′s/80′s cover band.
