I walked to Magruder’s after work today, because it was so lovely outside, and I just had to walk somewhere. This song came on my iPod while I was walking along and I had to share it with someone so I thought I’d share it with you.
Captain Deb first introduced me to it while I was in Alaska, pulled from the album American Folk—which, BTW, is a great album—and I was immediately hooked. In love. Obsessed. I subsequently put the song on a mix I made for The Swede who was then also immediately hooked. In love. Obsessed. Okay, maybe not all of those, though he did recently email Shannon McNally and propose marriage to her. It might seem odd, having your main squeeze not only propose marriage to another woman, but to a woman he’s never actually met, but he did at least cc me on the email, and in truth I support this union wholeheartedly. Mainly because I want to be Shannon McNally’s friend. And by friend, I mean I want her to stand at the foot of my bed every night and sing floating, melodic songs while I fall asleep. Or maybe following behind me, singing and strumming her guitar the next time it’s lovely out and I’m walking to Magruder’s to get cheese and tomatoes and a crusty boule of bread.
Sadly I fear the dreams for both myself and The Swede won’t come true. Not any time soon, anyway, as Shannon has yet to return his email, which I’m guessing means she probably is not going to accept his marriage proposal either. Pity.
In the meantime, enjoy her voice, enjoy the music, enjoy the lovely weather, if, in fact, it’s lovely where you are. If it’s not, here’s to tomorrow, which is a new day.
