I’ve had this song, “Shelter” by Birdy, on repeat for four days straight so I decided it was time to write up an obsession post. The original, The XX’s “Shelter” was on at least one of my book soundtracks (although I think it may be a book that I haven’t released). But this version, this version is even better! I do so love me some melancholy tunes and this gal, Birdy, does great melancholy. (Don’t believe me, check out her cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love“!)

So pop in a pair of earbuds, kick back in a dark room with a box of tissues and prepare to sniffle a little.

Don’t want to sniffle? Try this song instead.
