Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

The John Butler Trio - What You Want

But I could fly away
Or I could be no one

If you ever wondered how or why I choose the lyrics for each entry, I'll have to admit that it's for a different reason each time. Sometimes I just love those particular lines, sometimes I love the meaning, sometimes I can totally relate and a few times, I pick the only two that make any sense!

"What You Want" off the John Butler Trio's debut LP, Sunrise Over Sea, is probably my favorite song on the album. It's the second I ever heard by them and I instantly fell in love with it. Naturally, it grabbed my attention with the violins in the intro. It's definitely a song you would describe as "beautiful." It's well written musically and lyrically, not to mention Butler's amazing vocals, which remind me a lot of Brandon Boyd of Incubus.

Favorite Part: The way the instruments build and change starting around 3:20 until the end of the song.
