Song-A-Day: January 31

We’re closing out January today but winter’s still going strong here in Albany with our snow storms scheduled to re-appear on this upcoming Wednesday supposedly. Today’s Song-A-Day celebrates finding the positives among the bleak though, as Fleet Foxes’ “White Winter Hymnal” presents a story of a trek through the snow where a friend falls and begins to bleed into the snow, turning the “white snow red as strawberries in the summertime”. Great track by what might be the definitive folk band at the moment, and a very pretty listen for the sake of musical composition.

I was following the pack all swallowed in their coats
With scarves of red tied ’round their throats
To keep their little heads
From falling in the snow
And I turned ’round and there you go
And Michael, you would fall
And turn the white snow red as strawberries in the summertime
