Barcelona – Get up (*3)

“Get up, Get up, Get up”

It is 1:23 am. After a long, hard day of working I am left wanting nothing but rest. However, I found this song. This song, with this wonderful piano and this wonderful voice.

And all in a moment I was revived. Revived with a sense of purpose and of passion. When all else fails, music can still play the concert of a lifetime to my heart.

“Where words fail, music speaks.” – Hans Christian Andersen

When I was in college, nearly a decade ago, I would sit and play piano in a dark rehearsal hall. As dark as that room was, it was such an illuminating experience for my life. I don’t mean to be melodramatic at all, but I cherish those times still to this day.

This song reminded me how much I cared about music back then, and how deeply rewarding just listening can be. Just listening. Just. Listen.

Long after I fall asleep tonight, I hope I hear “get up… get up… get up”.

From the Album: Absolutes

    nice harmonies at the end of this one. i borrowed the tune for my blog, but no one reads mine so no worries, yours is still the authority on fantastic indie ambient goodness.

    Barcelona has been one of my favorite bands for a good while now. That entire album is just amazing – it was one that I put in my cd player and didn’t take out for like 3 months straight. Saw them at SXSW this past year, and they were fun live too. Man, good pick.

    I lost your blog for a while, but thanks to a post from your woman, I re-discovered it. (: Hooray. And now that I know how to subscribe to blogs, consider yourself subscribed.
