[Reckless Beat & SOTD] Death Cab For Cutie – Black Sun

RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.

 

 

I started re-reading/finished reading The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal again, after literally forgetting about it until now. And wouldn’t you know… the minute all the stellar song choices started “playing” all throughout the pages, I ended up singing some Death Cab For Cutie tunes.

Although this one is a little after the time, I think this one wouldn’t worked well for the book had it been out at the time.

Any current or former readers of TJ and Amal? What do you think about the song choice? Yay or nay?

Give it a listen and tell me what you think:

I give you Death Cab For Cutie‘s Black Sun!

LYRICS:

There is whisky in the water
And there is death upon the vine
There is fear in the eyes of your father
And there is “Yours” and there is “Mine”
There is a desert veiled in pavement
And there’s a city of seven hills
And all our debris flows to the ocean
To meet again, I hope it will

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!

There is an answer in a question
And there is hope within despair
And there is beauty in a failure,
And there are depths beyond compare
There is a role of a lifetime
And there’s a song yet to be sung
And there’s a dumpster in the driveway
Of all the plans that came undone

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!
How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!

There is whisky in the water
And there is death upon the vine
And there is grace within forgiveness
But it’s so hard for me to find

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!
How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!
