There was no question in my mind that this song would get song of the month for December. I am not kidding when I say that this is the ONLY song I have listened to on the train, for a MONTH. Seriously, the song finishes and then I just hit the back button. I can get on the train in a cruddy mood and put this on, and by the time the doors open at Parliament could almost bounce off the train.
I HIGHLY recommend it.
It is – ‘Australia’ by The Shins. Catchy catchy catchy.
Incidentally Grammy nominations are out today and ‘Wincing the night away’ the album that ‘Australia’ is from got nominated for best alternative music album.
Anyway, you guys be the judge. Hear/See it here. I love this song. I may go spend my last $16 of credit in itunes and buy the whole album.
Awesome lyrics too, could have a field day with them.
