4. Frightened Rabbit’s “Poke”

This song has enough pain in it for an entire album’s worth. I’ve attached the lyrics because their honesty and brutal imagery perfectly describes the feelings almost everyone has had when shit in a relationship feels hopeless.  I really hope these guys can somehow hitch onto the back of the locomotive that is Mumford & Sons right now.  At least there’s enough room for beautiful storytelling and Scottish accents in my library.

“I might never catch a mouse and present it in my mouth
And make you feel you’re with someone who deserves to be with you.

But there’s one thing we’ve got going and it’s the only thing worth knowing.
It’s got lots to do with magnets and the pull of the moon.”
