The Friday Thing: Song of Our So-called Friend by Okkervil River

Recently, I cannot get enough of this song. On the album recording, it has such a simple/subtle beauty that when quietly listening to it can (and will) leave you in tears. This song is absolutely lovely, and although it's just Will Sheff singing this without the aid of a female harmony, you can still see why the flowers are dancing! Enjoy!

Just wondering if I could get in touch with you somehow so I could suggest albums, namely, the Roar EP by the Murdocks. I'd even be interested in doing reviews every once in a while. Thank you for doing this blog though, I've heard a lot of cool music. I'm specifically mentioning Ra Ra Riot. I enjoyed that song quite a bit.

Keep at it!

I like how this is filmed. but I think I have to listen to it more than once to decide whether or not I like it.
I'll be back.
Thanks DH.

Lily: I must say, the album version of the song is much better, and it will leave you moved. This version is only a tad iffy, but he does pour himself into it, you can tell.

Well said DH, most definitely, I agree, about pouring himself into it I mean.
