Favorite National Song So Far
“Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks” on High Violet, which is probably my favorite album so far based just on a cursory listen. It’s also hard to describe why I like it so much, because not much happens and yet the song is so full. There’s this sense of reconciliation and culmination, a good album ending song, of course. It has beautiful imagery. The combination of the music and lyrics of “hangin’ from chandeliers” may just be my favorite line of the song. It’s helps that Matt Berninger has a great voice as well.
I think this project is headed in a positive direction.
