It seems as if this week has flown by. No complaints here though. It means we are even closer to this week’s episode of The Appetizer. D. Grant will head into the third hour of his Deep Cuts series. Believe me, this is one you don’t want to miss. I was looking over Saturday’s menu, and I can’t wait.
He’ll serve up some great tracks from Ingrid Michaelson, Citizen Cope, KT Tunstall, Ben Harper, and so many others. One artist that I am so excited about is Death Cab For Cutie. I have always been a huge fan of this band. Even as a little middle school kid, who didn’t even understand what good music was. This episode will feature tracks from their 2005 album, Plans, and their 2008 album, Narrow Stairs.
I thought this would be an excellent time to share my favorite Death Cab For Cutie song, also off of Narrow Stairs.
Cath.. is a great track about unrequited love, and making life choices that you don’t want. Making the choice to be unhappy. It sounds crazy, but people do it everyday. I went through a stage in my life where I made life decisions based on what everyone else wanted. I am finally realizing that I have to do what makes me happy. Okay, that’s enough about Meagan’s life lessons. The music video is excellent, it tells the story of a girl who is in love with a man, but marries another one because other people think that is what she should do. Ironically, the video takes place at a wedding, and as my own wedding is right around the corner, I am happy to say there will be no regrets at mine.
This song is a great taste of the songwriting skills of this band, listen for yourself.
Here’s the link to the music video, Cath…
