Song of the Day: Oh Land - Bloodbuzz Ohio (The National Cover)


Here's a singer I just found out about.  Love her voice.

And here's the original.  Different vibe when sung by a man, but still good.  What can I say, I like the vibe of Oh Land's version better.  And I like the female voice better.  :)

Lyrics, from Metrolyrics.com (reformatted from that web page).  The lyrics to this song are subtle, simple but powerful.  I can't say that the lyrics are particularly deep (but they're deeper than I originally thought).  In my opinion, the lyrics do a great job of conveying a certain mood--a mood that I find myself relating to as I listen to the song.  Beyond that, I don't care to over-analyze it.  I'm liking this song more the more I listen to it.

Stand up straight at the foot of your love, I lift my shirt up
Stand up straight at the foot of your love, I lift my shirt up

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I'll never marry but Ohio don't remember me

Lay my head on the hood of your car, I'll take it too far
Lay my head on the hood of your car, I'll take it too far

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I'm on a blood buzz
Yes, I am
I'm on a blood buzz
I'm on a blood buzz
God, I am
I'm on a blood buzz

Stand up straight at the foot of your love, I lift my shirt up
Stand up straight at the foot of your love, I take it too far

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I'm on a blood buzz
Yes, I am
I'm on a blood buzz
I'm on a blood buzz
God, I am
I'm on a blood buzz
