tunes for tuesday: the understanding

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.



  1. Thanks for sharing. I really liked this song. I plan on posting to my face book. I enjoy sharing new music too!

  2. Hello! I'm a new follower and would love it if you could follow me back :)


  3. OK, this may be bad at only 930 in the morning....but I would like to crawl in that luscious bed with that beautiful young man at the beginning, those linens are amazingly comfy looking, and I would like him to serenade me with his guitar.....now that is the way to wake up.......oh and the song wasn’t that bad either! heheh

  4. I love your header. So cute. I was up most of the night too. I just kept laying there though, tried and tried to get some sleep. Knowing that I have to chase around a 21 month old, and work all day. Yeah, didn't work though.

    Great post.
