Day 14: Going For The Gold

From Oh Holy Fools (2001)

Honestly, I’m not in love with the sound of this song. I find the harmonies to be mostly off-putting. It’s still musical, don’t get me wrong, but it’s an uncomfortable series of chords for me. Then he lifts it off when he sings the “refrains”, which I can appreciate. It feels a little like Bach. However, I had to include this song for the notable lyric, which is one of my favorites. You have to hear him sing it, though.

Notable lyric: I know a girl who cries when she practices violin / Because each note sounds so pure it just cuts into her / And then the melody comes pouring out her eyes
