It’s the Seven Day Mile

Longer post coming this weekend, quick song link for now.

“Seven Day Mile” by the Irish band The Frames was used brilliantly in an episode of “House”, as most of the music placed in that show is.

This song is weird. The verses are sung in a near whisper, barely perceptible over a simplistic backdrop of strings, acoustic guitar, and snare drum. Those lyrics are pretty cryptic and hard to decipher. But then, the chorus soars out of the near silence (along with the bridge), and honestly becomes one of my favorite choruses of any song. I love the way it sounds, and the lyrics are perfect.

“Well this might take awhile to figure out/So don’t you rush it/Hold your head up high right through the doubt/Cause it’s just a matter of time”
These are words that I really feel like I can connect to right now.
