Today it’s rainy, my car is in the shop, and I am immobile. Here’s three songs for your crippling ennui.
Death Cab For Cutie — “Cath…”
Because “What Sarah Said” is just a little too much and “Transatlanticism” should be reserved for long drives by yourself late at night.
Radical Face — “Welcome Home, Son”
Perhaps a little too quietly triumphant for your darkest moments, but it’s got hand claps and lots of acoustic business.
The Carpenters — “Superstar”
This hits the cross section of “songs my parents love” and “songs about rock stars hittin’ it and quittin’ it.”
