Today's cd/Hopes and Fears
Keane/Hopes and Fears/2004
Truth be told, I could happily play this cd every single day, and never, ever tire of it.
Recently a local radio station asked listeners to send in their top ten favorite albums of all time. A very daunting endeavor. Some results were very important historically, but my choices were strictly personal loves. The newest one on my list was Hopes and Fears. If you are wondering about the others, here they are in alphabetical order:
Barenaked Ladies - Gordon
The Beatles – A Hard Day's Night
Keane - Hopes and Fears
Bob Marley & The Wailers - Legend
Van Morrison - Days Like This
Van Morrison & The Chieftains - Irish Heartbeat
Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory
Paul Simon - Graceland
Zoot Sims Quartet - That Old Feeling
Bruce Springsteen - Born In The USA
Anyway, back to Keane. I sometimes describe music as "achingly beautiful" and the description fits here. I love this album.
The song playing is Everybody's Changing.
