“Swing Tree” – Discovery

If I was a boy at sea

I would be swinging from a broken tree

I would be down on my back looking up at stars at night

It’s Sunday.  C’mon people.  Listen to a damn fine and ridiculously catchy song and get outside and do something.  This song is best enjoyed in your car, driving along the coast with the windows down, sunroof open, and bass way up.  Or at least listen to it through your headphones.  There’s a lot of nuance here and I don’t want you to miss any of it.

I’ll be honest.  I have trouble understanding the lyrics.  There is something about a tree swing, that much I know for certain.  I’m not entirely sure that this is a very happy song lyrics-wise, but the beat and the keyboards and the neo-New Wave feel are making me smile and nod my head.

I also like that we get into more of a dance hall beat around 1:44.  Unexpected treat.

In summary: It feels good.
