I’m not really a fan of Bright Eyes. So many people have pushed Conor Oberst’s work at me, to no avail. I have respect for him as an artist, but I simply don’t jive with him, somehow.
This song, however, is an exception, and has become an anthem in recent months to a degree. Everything about it works so completely for me that I have to wonder why nothing else of his does. Life is funny that way… Maybe you can help, Bright Eyes fans?
