The Drums - Bestfriend

The Drums - Best Friend on MUZU

Love this song by US quartet The Drums. It's a kind of clumsy song about mourning the death of a friend. It's no poignant poem, instead it gets right to the point. Blunt as a knife yet as sweet as a cherry pie.
"You're my best friend, but then you died. I was 23 & you were 25. And how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?"

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.

Ye Faithful
