Today’s song is ‘Sigh No More’ from Mumford and Sons. It is the opening track off of their debut album, which is of the same name, and it is widely considered to be one of the best debut albums of not only 2010 but of the past few years. Like many Mumford songs it is one that builds with emotion and energy as the song progresses. Mumford and sons would be an amazing band just in a musical sense, but it’s their lyrics – when combined with their musicianship – which clearly sets them apart from other music. Besides being a most wonderful song in it’s own right it is one that can remind one of the best parts of the holiday season, the feelings of love and kindness we create for each other. As we are told in the song, “Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you, it will set you free!”
So sit back and enjoy this life-affiriming, yet romper of a song. May you feel the love of this song and of this season – enjoy the holidays to the fullest!
