Day 2: The Awful Sweetness Of Escaping Sweat

A Collection of Songs Written and Recorded 1995-1997 (1997)

In 1995, I was 12 years old. Conor Oberst, lead singer and mastermind behind Bright Eyes, was three years older. And, yet, he was writing songs like this one. This song, from the first Bright Eyes album, is tortured and raw. In typical Conor fashion, his voice is a stratchy record. Yet, he never screams for no reason; there is always melody, harmony, or message in his voice.

Stand out lyric: Fill the bathtub with ice and hope this fever will break / Like a heart / Easily

I've made a smart playlist of all the songs with 0 plays. I listen to them because I feel bad for them not because I like the music. I'm THAT guy.
