It's late... or early, depending on how you look at it. I've been awake since 1:45 and at this point it's a little after 4:00. Not much sense in climbing back into bed now since my alarm will go off in less than an hour. So how do you whittle away the hours until the rest of mankind begins to stir? By playing on-line Scrabble and listening to music, that's how.
All of that brings me to one of my current favorite songs, "The Understanding" by Jones Street Station. While the band’s folksy indie pop is easy on the ears, it keeps the listener engaged. The song definitely has a great sentiment and a catchy track.
Band member Danny Erker says, "We sing about a lot of wild stuff in the song -- fallen angels, prison breaks, sword fights -- but what's at its heart is the simple beauty of spontaneous friendships...".
Perfect listening for 4:00 am.
