30 Day Song Challenge - Day 4: A Song That Makes You Sad

The Funeral - Band of Horses

Sorry for the delay, the internet wasn't working yesterday, so I'll do two posts of the challenge on tonight. Anyhoo, on with the song. I love this song so much but listening to it really does make me quite sad, especially when you really think about the lyrics. I first heard it at the end of the final Flashforward episode which was quite sad, so I guess perhaps that's another reason why I find this song so depressing. The melody's so beautiful though, and I love the contrast between the first two verses - the simple electric guitar and then the full blown rage-out (could I possibly have just made up a new word?!).
Have a listen and see what you think... I think it's a quite an acquired taste, but I hope you like it :) 

Also don't you find the video quite depressing all in black and white?

  1. LOVE this song. I believe it's on one of the One Tree Hill soundtracks.
