#66. 'To know me as hardly golden is to know me all wrong'
Band of Horses"The Funeral"
There's something about the chorus of this one that just hits hard. The idea that you spend your life perpetually expecting a funeral to occur at any moment is at once profoundly depressing and profoundly beautiful, especially in conjunction with Ben Bridwell's crooning vocal delivery and the bands' majestic, dynamic backing making the whole thing sound majestically uplifting.
