for your listening (and viewing) pleasure. {and for mine}.



i know, i know. another one.
(another noah and the whale related post).
and yes, i know, i understand why many think this third album isn't as good as the first two.
but the thing is...
well.
the second album was one of such deep heartache.
and i know that. that sadness that swallows you whole.
so this third album--one of great hope and resiliency and coming back to one's self and realizing that life is even sweeter...well, maybe that's why i love it. the bliss of it. the bliss that comes after the fallout.

so yes. i'm sharing this video. because it's one of my favorite songs on the album.
and because lately, i've been thinking, that i'd do just about anything to be seventeen again, driving the winding roads to school in my volvo station wagon, listening to john mayer (before he ever released his second studio album and we learned far too much about his personal life in the tabloids). to be seventeen, immune to heartache, and feel like anything at all is within a fingertip's grasp.

ps: doesn't the drummer just look like sun is shining down on his face?

This might be my favorite line you've ever writen - "the bliss that comes after the fallout" Ah, so true yet so hard to remember. :)

gah to be 17 again! If I could go back and talk to my seventeen year old self I'd tell her to quit worrying, stand up straight, wear sunscreen and dump that stupid boy she was dating (he would only go on to break her heart....)

I like this... I really really do. I like the song. And I like the reasons why you like it.

Very good post!
As you know I am one who didn't like the new album quite as much as the previous two, but as of yet I had not considered the overall theme of each album...
I think I might just have to listen to all three albums in order and pay closer attention to the messages.
Oh look, I still have three hours of work left and just happened to bring my iPod with me today...

Okay, I surrender. I'm now converted to Noah and the Whale.

I love the Beatles-esque quality of their music and their hair is fabulous.

Thanks for sharing.
