Coming from his fourth studio album, Back and Fourth, today’s Song of the Day is “Paradise Cove” by Pete Yorn. This song highlights Yorn’s unique gravelly vocal styling while providing a full-bodied sound featuring multiple acoustic guitars, bass, percussion, and prominent piano. The melody is so catchy a listener my not give the lyrics much consideration at first; however, on a second or third listen one gathers that the song perhaps contains a meaning a bit more melancholy than its tempo indicates. Perfect for any traveling “mix tape” or even a lazy day at home, this song will have you tapping your feet, and also possibly contemplating the highs and lows that come with relationships. Either way, Yorn delivers quality music; don’t be surprised if you put this track on repeat.
