Eric Johnson (EJ) is still number one on my list of favorite musicians. His music really resonates in a way I’ve never experienced (even with the guy I’m about to mention). But I heard a song by Gotye the other morning and found myself hooked. It’s the lyrics that get me. And because I don’t think it’s fair to judge a person’s work by one song, I present three.
This isn’t my absolute favorite song by him. Plus, the story in the animation is so sad. But the lyrics are, I think, beautiful.
This also isn’t my favorite song by him. However, it’s the one that seems to be getting the most radio play and I love how the lyrics sound so natural, like they’re talking.
This is my favorite song by him. I love the story in the lyrics. What can I say? I’m a helpless romantic. There is no video with this. Just a picture.
Hearts a Mess is also excellent, but this is all the time I have. I’ve finished the character sheets for the sequel and I’ve even got a working title that works. I’m currently figuring out the scene list. And these allergies are still acting up. But I should be able to get to a comment or two before I crash tonight.
(Just so it’s said, I don’t get any compensation in any way, shape, or form, from mentioning Gotye’s music or linking to these videos.)
