Odd Songs Floating in the Abyss of My Mind

So, today, a completely random song popped into my head. Now, I know people who are acquainted with me will groan and say isn’t your life a completely random song. However, take that sentiment and quadruple it because this one is quite a doozie. It is a song by Diamond Rio, a country band that I liked at one point and I still enjoy some of their music today. 

The song is called “Beautiful Mess.” Why do I like the song? It’s because it has a narrative storyline reminiscent of the older country songs that I respect (I don’t necessarily like everyone). The lyrics are enjoyable, and the melody is fun. The music itself seems to mix country and blue grass. It’s a nice mellow tune to listen to driving down the road with your windows down. I like it because of all these things and because I don’t feel that it falls into the pop country crap that we are bombarded with today. Although it came out in 2002, it is still a fun song. So, I leave you with it.

It’s a song about infatuation. It doesn’t pretend to be anything that it’s not. It’s simplistic and interesting.
