Tuesday Jams [#29] – Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – S.O.B.
Sharonda from Brazen Babe Reviews came up with this “meme” called Tuesday Jams. Her idea is simple: share a song you’ve been loving like crazy lately.
I did a rare bit of radio listening today and heard this tune by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats on an Indianapolis station. I couldn’t make out what they were saying, but the hand-clapping, catchy beat was enough to make me grab Shazam. When I got home I found it in iTunes, only then did I actually pay attention to the song title. Of course I had to look up the lyrics. The words to this are fairly depressing despite the upbeat music. Yet I’m so messed up that I laughed when I saw what he was saying. Warning: if alcoholics are a trigger for you, don’t listen. Here are the lyrics if you’re inclined to check them out. And here Nathaniel mentions how he wrote S.O.B. as a joke. *wipes her forehead* phew!
