I should be on one of those majestic metal birds soon… but alas, I have decided to spend the holidays at home, with that retarded orange cat I spoke of. Who doesn’t want to sob listening to, “All I Want For Christmas” by Mariah Carey while forcing a cat to “STAY STILL!” in the grips of arm death lock?
Ok, so maybe that’s not YOUR favorite Christmas pastime. Maybe you would rather listen to one of the best bands this year could come up with, maybe while cuddling a handsome man who makes a mean hot cocoa and would like to hear about your childhood for 7 straight hours. Whatever, if that’s your deal, start off the evening of babble with Local Natives, “Airplanes”. Hands down one of my top 5 songs of this year.
This song has a way of taking you on a little boat… the waves go up and down and then slam into explosive drums and almost begging, pleading vocals, “I love it all… so much I call… I want you back” right before it eases your little mind boat back into safe soothing waters. The ride is glorious. Trust me.
