Songs For A Hopeless Apology (VII)

The National – Slow Show

Speaking about screwing up, seldom have musicians better described the kind of pathetic attitude I tend to repeat than the Ohioan indie-rock masters. Berninger’s voice and original singing style, both melancholic and energetic, always makes the best performance as the hopeless ordinary loser.

“I made a mistake in my life today
everything I love gets lost in drawers
I want to start over, I want to be winning
way out of sync from the beginning.”
