Straight outta suburbia :: SOTD

Lost Weekend (live) :: Pete Yorn

“You can tell the truth,
you can tell the lie;
say anything you want to say,
are we all just lost in time.”

This is gorgeous. The mood it evokes, separate from the sonic/full instrument/produced album version, is emotionally rich, vulnerable, intimate. This 1 mic 1 take version gives me chills, in the best way, and makes me tear up a bit. It brings back my own suburban upbringing, the dreams of escape I had, the world I wanted to see. I close my eyes and can see the posters and ripped magazine pages on my wall, the composition book pages filled with poetry and dreams, short stories, plans for the future.

This is fucking beautiful.
