Song of the Day: Frightened Rabbit – “The Loneliness and the Scream”

You guys probably haven't heard, but this video game called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 came out this week. I mean, some people know about it but they're probably the minority. Anyway, it's a massive time suck but I will not allow it to detract from the site, so you dozen or so readers need not fear. On a completely unrelated note that has nothing to do with aforementioned video game, I have this thing I have to do this week that's pretty important and will most likely take up most of my free time, so the content might be a little on the light side. Like I said, it has nothing to do with Call of Duty, or playing it every waking hour I'm not at work or masturbating (although I can play video games and masturbate at the same time; call me Mr. Multitask).

Onward and upward!

The Song of the Day today is a little bit of a primer for the Artist Spotlight that will be posted tomorrow. It's by a Scottish folk/indie rock band called Frightened Rabbit. Unfortunately there aren't any bagpipes (at least I don't think so) or references to FREEEEEDOM, but they warrant a listen nonetheless. Without divulging too much about the band for right now, most of their stuff is of the upbeat variety (I can't get past the accent so it all sounds like happy music to me until I actually took note of the lyrics, but more on that tomorrow) that will brighten your day, and maybe spice it up a little since they sing in funny accents. This particular song (and accompanying music video) is about as close as you can get to the story of my life (especially since I'm going to be so busy this week, doing something that isn't playing MW3 all the time by myself). The only thing that is different is that I don't have a Las Vegas coffee mug. Anyway, this song, along with pretty much every song I've used for Song of the Day is from my Top 230 something songs list, and for good reason. Don't forget to check back tomorrow for a more in-depth look into Frightened Rabbit.
