You said you’d always love me…

 

One of the better heartbreak albums of 2009 has to be Noah and the Whale’s The First Days of Spring.  If you can bear it, listen to it straight through — particular highlights are Our Window and Blue Skies.  And on iTunes you can download the accompanying 48 minute film, a beautifully shot homage to a break-up and life afterwards.  At least that’s what I think it’s about…I had to watch it twice. Other interpretations welcome.
There’s a scene in the movie that includes a telling of the scorpion and the frog story. Which I heard twice in one week in entirely different contexts.  Odd.
