for today’s tunes, you get a twofer Tuesday, as I present two songs – both titled “demons”.
the 1st version is from the band Guster, off their 2nd album Goldfly (1997). Guster has long been a favorite of my wife and I – I think we’ve seen them live multiple times now.
Honest is easy Fiction is where genius lies Cause it’s easier sometimes Not to be involved Somehow I make you believe
the 2nd version is from the band The National, off their brand new album Trouble Will Find Me (2013, just released this week). I LOVE this band – and have everyone of their albums, plus a smattering of live stuff as well.
The worried talk to god goes on. I sincerely tried to love it, Wish that I could rise above it.
But I stay down, With my demons.

for today’s tunes, I offer up the song Rocketship, by the awesome band Guster. this is a live and acoustic version off their latest album – Guster Live Acoustic. I’ve seen Guster live several times – they are fantastic, and this album does not disappoint.
in honor of the end of the world (if the Mayans were correct):
Cracked eggs, dead birds Scream as they fight for life I can feel death, can see its beady eyes All these things into position All these things we’ll one day swallow whole And fade out again and fade out again
Immerse your soul in love Immerse your soul in love
Hebb wrote the song after November 22, 1963, the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and Hebb’s older brother Harold was stabbed to death outside a Nashville nightclub. Hebb was devastated by both events and many critics say that those events inspired the tune.
