Best of 09

October 18, 2009

As stated earlier, Elvis Perkins is my favorite recording artist in 2009.  Now I am prepared to announce my favorite song of 2009.

“Bless This Mess” by David Bazan (click to download track)

This song is at once both fairly complicated and immediately accessible, perfectly suited for the repeat button. The lyrics paint a somewhat desperate picture of an alcoholic father (apparently failing at his recovery) attempting to integrate into his family’s lives.

Although I am neither a parent or an alcoholic I find myself almost wishing I was both so I could enjoy this even more.
