Who here loves Brandi Carlile as much as I do?
I go in cycles when it comes to songs. When I fall in love with a song, I would listen to it over and over for days or even weeks, then I’d get tired of it and go thru the same process with another song.
Right now I’m listening to The Joke. If you listen to the lyrics carefully, you might start crying, but not necessarily out of sadness. In fact, I think the song is rather uplifting. It offers encouragement and carries a hopeful message.
Carlile said it is dedicated to all people who “feel underrepresented, unloved or illegal.” It’s just the right song to listen to in the current political climate, which can be downright depressing.
I think it should have won a Grammy or at least be played more often. I’m spreading the word to help, not that I’m being paid or anything like that. I just like it. What songs are you listening to?
