I’ve just been catching up with my personal subscription feed on YouTube when this video popped up today. It’s always been one of my favourite Incubus songs among many others. I first saw this particular recording as part of the band’s Morning View SessionsDVD. It was the first time the song really spoke to me; the way Brandon omits some of the lyrics towards the end – you don’t get that on the studio recording and they’ve since done even better (Alive at Red Rocks, 2004, with bass-player Ben Kenney providing the vocals at the same point).
I experienced a sensation of warmth the day I met ‘May‘. Since then, I’ve found myself feeling cold, far too often.
I had a little bit of a ramble earlier with some of the niggling fears I’m still feeling after attending my writing course this week and, to prove that I am in a rather positive mood at the moment, I want to share with you one of my favourite songs at the moment.
It is by Incubus, of course and, it’s been high on my iPod’s playlist for… Well, when did the album come out? Last summer?!
It’s not so much for the lyrics with this one; it’s the mood, tempo and feeling. You may not think much of it at first (and, it is different to all of their previous work) but, I believe that it is worth seeing through until the end (it is also a LIVE recording).
