spring anthem

Every year, in the twilight of winter a song finds me.

A song that
strikes a chord
moves me gently from the rut I have worn myself into over the long, hollow months of winter.

A song that makes my legs ache to run; my hips to dance.
lay it all out on the line.
grow my hair long
speed up
slow down
shake out the cobwebs
make some skirts
drop the armour
grab hold
let go
pare down
see it all as a daring adventure
and nothing short of a miracle
"...Leave all my loving, my loving behind..."

Music is a powerful thing when it is right and good.

"Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your loving, your loving behind
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive" 

Previous years of spring anthems include:

A few years ago it was Yael Naim

After that it was City and Colour

Last year it was Yeasayer

  2. Love this song!! She pulls you in with that first line "Happiness hit her like a train on the track".

    Great choice!
