A love song. I never think about it, but many love songs have been posted here. There is no doubt I’m driven by the beats and rhythms more than the lyrical makeup of tracks. The simpleton in me, I suppose.
I’m still in that deep and engrossing rut that is Hawksley Workman. His songs continue to excite me, make me stop what I’m doing and simply, tune in. His most excellent and heartfelt Safe and Sound is the epitome of why this is one rut I can’t climb from. Nor do I have the ambition to. With the help of light strumming and Workman’s Buckley-esque voice, this moving and romantic number is one of my favorite pieces from the Ontario one-man jam.
