Music Monday: The Unknown Known

I found my old iPod shuffle which had some playlists that I hadn’t heard for quite some time. Each song brought back memories, some pleasant, some…well, not so much.

Often we stumble upon a band that grabs us from the first note, chord, or lyric, and think, “I wonder if anyone else knows about this band?”

Of course they do. But sometimes it feels like we are the only one who likes them, and we do one of two things: Tell people about them or keep it as our little secret-which it is not. Bands don’t exist without a following, large or small.

I heard Frightened Rabbit about a decade ago and no one I knew had ever heard of them. I listened to them a lot, but then they dropped off the radar as my life moved on until the discovery of that iPod I mentioned.

When I was preparing to write this post, I was going to post a video…then I discovered that the lead singer had taken his own life several years ago.

I can’t pick a favorite song. Maybe you can.
