What Came First, the Music or the Misery?

Storm

A rather upbeat song filled with a depressing story.  I love songs like this.  And since I’m having one of those weeks, it only seems fitting to mention it. 

The song is appropriately called “Rain” and is performed by the band Bishop Allen.  Co-founder and lead singer, Justin Rice, nearly provokes a bad moment onto himself as a way for it to run its course so he can get on with his life.  He succumbs to the storm, and in a glorious moment of pop imagery, he paddles away in the flood on his guitar. 

You can catch Bishop Allen on tour with John Vanderslice in the fall.

I also recommend watching this video for a live street performance of “Click Click Click Click.”

“‘Cuz if it’s ever gonna get any better, it’s gotta get worse for a day.”
