AWOLNATION – Sail

This melody came on my radar thanks to an amazing fan-made YouTube video. It’s so good that whenever I read the song’s title, the first thing I think about is not the music, but the playful, over-the-top video full of youthful exuberance and vibrant energy. This one is simply off the charts in the “cute” category!

Of course, this is not to say that this isn’t a great song, because it is! It’s a fabulous combination of rock, synth-driven textures, distorted vocals and dreamy choirs. Definitely a song I’d put in a collection meant to expand one’s musical horizons. But really, make sure you see the video :).

“This is how I show my love
I made it in my mind because
I blame it on my A.D.D. baby

[…]

Maybe I’m a different breed
Maybe I’m not listening
So blame it on my A.D.D. baby

[…]

Sail with me into the dark
Sail!”
