This is my favourite song of all time. I can really identify with a song about a girl who wants to sleep all the time and dream about horses. Whenever I'm feeling down, I listen to this song and the trumpet line always makes me feel a bit better.
Bahaha! I had to put this song up. This is the most ridiculous, cheesy, terrible country song possible, but I love it. The music video features Alan waterskiing wearing his cowboy hat and cowboy boots, and tubing while playing his guitar. Then they all have a ho-down. He is an ultimate cowboy.
Good song for barbequeing.
from A Lot About Livin' (And A Little 'Bout Love) (Arista 18711-2)
This song starts with lush orchestration and a pretty melody, followed by Ben Folds' sweet and wonderful voice, and then the bouncy piano line kicks in and the whole effect is sublime. I really like this song, and I'm not usually much of a Ben Folds fan, even.
I live in Alberta, and seeing as not a lot of people would want to come here, I'm a bit sentimental toward songs that mention the place I'm from. This song really reminds me of home, and is the kind of top quality rootsier alt-country-ish music that hides around these parts. It's catchy and features a banjo.
