The Song in My Head
You BOTB regulars know that these TSIMH entries come in fits and spurts.
Well today a song that I've heard bits of for much of the past year finally came home to roost.
We have satellite TV here in the country (our only option) and one of the side benefits to this is that we get XM Satellite Radio via our TV set. I hooked up an extra-long audio cable to our stereo so we can listen to it throughout the house. There are several times a day when one of us goes running into the living room to see the name of the song being played or the artist performing that song. The XM channel we listen to most often is "The Loft" and with the exception of the occasional slip into bad sugar pop (e.g.: Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl") the music they play is excellent.
Today's entry is a song I heard on "The Loft" last week. I was transported by what I heard. Of course, I navigated the digital ether to the iTunes store and bought it right away. Then I found out it was from Over the Rhine, an up-and-coming Ohio-based band.
So tonight The Song in My Head is:
by Over the Rhine
from their album "Drunkard's Prayer"
I was born to laugh
I learned to laugh through my tears
I was born to love
I'm gonna learn to love without fear
Pour me a glass of wine
talk late into the night
who knows what we'll find
Check it out. Highly recommended ear candy.
