The Nerdy Girlie's Music Monday #18: The Civil Wars
We all know the person who waits until an entire series comes out and THEN binge watches the entire series in a weekend. Is that you?! I do that, but with music. I get stuck on ONE album and listen to it on repeat until the moment arrives that it has healed me and done. Other times its listening to the same song on repeat for days.
Happened with The 1975, Catfish and the Bottlemen and most recently The Civil Wars.Nerd Coolture met me for lunch one day and we got to chatting about life, love, nerd stuff and of course music. They told me the tale of The Civil Wars and their break up which was tragic. The next morning I hit play on Spotify, the first song grabbed me, the second stopped my heart. Poison And Wine was then on repeat for days. I even ran one night to the song on repeat for thirty minutes. Upon first listen I cried, then and even now go back in forth between it giving hope and it still making my feelz pour out.
My favorite other than P&W is To Whom It May Concern. If I ever felt like a song was written especially for me, this is it. It is so sweet, a tad depressing in my current relationship state...you know self torturer and all...but mostly hopeful.
Not pictured is the gorg Star. Who shot the photo!
I think I might fit into Denver quite nicely.
