Musical Interlude - Death Cab for Cutie

Not much to say today. I'm feeling mellow, so mellow music fits my mood. I think this song is sweet and simple and beautiful. For some reason, it reminds me of the myth about Orpheus and Eurydice. Funny, the associations our minds make...

The original video can only be found on the band's website, so if you click on the image, it will open a new window and take you to the band's media page and, if I did it correctly, it will launch the correct video. If you like what you hear, you should check out their other videos. In addition to making good music, their videos are always unique and creative.
I Will Follow You Into the Dark
by Death Cab for Cutie

Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles brusied by a lady in black
And I held my toungue as she told me
"Son fear is the heart of love"
So I never went back

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
Cause we'll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Then I'll follow you into the dark

That's the kind of melody that sticks in the head and becomes permanently tied to events of the day.

I had to do something to get the Black Eyed Peas song out of my head. I don't even like that band! But I heard one of their songs this morning and couldn't get it out! You gotta give them credit, they certainly do know how to write a catchy hook...

Anyway... this song did the trick. :)
