I heard Grouplove’s “Colours” listening on the satellite radio in the rental car I have for the Thanksgiving break. I’m turning this happenstance event into a blog post because I haven’t had the opportunity to find anything new. Hey – I’m on vacation.
It’s a fun song that I can’t stop listening to. Check out of of their other videos as well.
The video reminds me of a short story I read in fifth grade, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. It’s about a civil war soldier who is going to be hung, but the rope breaks, he escapes and has a crazy adventure. At the end of the story, you find out all of this happened in his head in his last moments before the rope snapped and broke his neck.
Never Trust a Happy Song
