this song reminds me of those nights, riding around in my car with you sitting by my side. my hand on your leg. your eyes staring at the stars in the sky. your thoughts thinking of me, my thoughts thinking of you.
I feel like another Jamb Spotlight is long overdue, but I guess it just makes it apparent as to why I didn’t call it the song of the day or anything. Regardless, today I’d like to show off a song by Allo Darlin’, from their self-titled debut that placed exceptionally high on my equally-long-overdue Best Albums of 2010 list.
Allo Darlin’ makes some fantastic twee pop. Some of the best I have heard in a long while. When I first got the album, I was shuffling around and not listening in any particular, and I believe this was actually the last song I listened to. I was lying in bed, pretty content with how the album was going. It was near-unbearably cute, but I was doing well keeping my composure. Then, this song begins describing the most awesome day I will never ever have.
Go to a carnival
Eat some sweets
Ride the Ferris wheel
Sing El Scorcho
Be totally in love with some fantastic twee-as-cuss girl
Kiss some lips
I believe the exact words I muttered to myself in the late night/early morning as I listened to this very song were, “Oh, fuck, I am so alone.”
