Day 16: If The Brakeman Turns My Way

From Cassadaga (2007)

I have to admit, I didn’t pay much attention to this song. That is, until there was a music video contest for it. I was excited. I listened to the song over and over, getting all sorts of ideas. Then they released more details, and the contest required that you only do a video for one of two thirty second clips of the song. I was outraged. Why can’t we do the whole song? My outrage, however, didn’t taint the song. It’s still a beautiful, straight-forward song. There is a neat part where the voice who was doing the “movin’ out” part of the refrains takes a turn, and Conor sings the “movin’ out” part. I like that.

Notable lyric: Mixed up tea leaves (movin’ out) / Phantom pain (movin’ out) / Fuzzy logic in the the crazy rain / Getting better (movin’ out) / every day if the / brakeman turns my way

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.
