Day 414 - Iron & Wine - Flightless Bird, American Mouth

DAY 414
Iron & Wine - "Flightless Bird, American Mouth"
From "Twilight Soundtrack"

I recently discovered Iron & Wine (a.k.a. Sam Beam)having heard this specific song on the movie "Twilight" which I personally loved. (The movie and the book series.)

I know nothing of this amazing artist but am certain that will be changing shortly as this live performance, just blew me away!!!

As strange as the lyrics may seem they are quite intriguing and oddly romantic. The words are extremely dreamy and romantic when coupled with this genius musical arrangement. You must give it at least one listen.

It sounds like you threw some oldies doo-whop and some classic folk music in a bag, shook it up, and viola! Magical music!!! :D

You can hear the studio version of this song on this YouTube clip.
