I'm going to try and keep the "talk" brief. I know many of you are still participating in the A to Z. Are you feeling about half dead right now? If I recall correctly, it was about this time (when I participated in the past) that I began to actively burn out. Melt down. It really wasn't pretty. So, hang in there Alphabet Gang. I'm gonna do you a solid and give you a short song in this Battle of the Bands face-off.
However, I just want to take one minute and tell you I'm going to start posting with a fair amount of regularity (one song per post) The Soundtrack of My Life. If you want to do your own variation I will add a link at the bottom of each so that others can find you. There aren't any rules, and it isn't a "hop." My first post in this series precedes this one.
Now, on to the song. Ho Hey! Yep, that's the name of the song. It was recorded first by The Lumineers, but has been covered more than once. Since I suspect many of you have never heard the version by The Lumineers that should eliminate much of the bias of familiarity. It will be interesting to see how this one pans out.
