So I lifted this video (and post title) from a blog that I visit from time to time. His blog is a little less of a blog and a little more of a diary. (not all that detailed diary) But I check in from time to time because he posts music on it from time to time. If you want to check him out, he can be found at http://ihavequalities.wordpress.com/
This post really is meant for one of my coworkers though. I recently discovered she had fairly decent musical taste with the help of a Secret Santa thing we did at work. I pulled her name and had to do some research for a gift. In my investigating I noticed she was using my favorite music resource, Spotify. I also saw some music in her profile I hadn’t expected, and Colin Meloy (above video) was one. I recently asked if she had listened to The Decemberists, which she said she hadn’t but had been meaning to. So to help her on the music journey I am going to post a couple of my personal favorites. The first come from the my favorite Decemberist album, The Hazards of Love. It is a live performance of Rake Song from South by Southwest Festival 2009 (courtesy of NPR Music). The second is a track from the album Picaresque titled Sixteen Military Wives and is an official video.
