Songs That Make Me Smile: “SIMPLE SONG” by THE SHINS (2012)

Well This Is Just A Simple Song…

…To Say What You Done…

…I Told You ’bout All Those Fears…

…And Away They Did Run…

…You Sure Must Be Strong…

…And You Feel Like An Ocean…

…Being Warmed By The Sun. …

…When I Was Just Nine-Years-Old…

…I Swear That I Dreamt…

…Your Face On A Football Field…

…And A Kiss That I Kept…

…Under My Vest…

…Apart From Everything…

…But The Heart In My Chest…

…I Know That Things Can Really Get Rough…

…When You Go It Alone…

…Don’t Go Thinking You Gotta Be Tough…

…To Play Like A Stone…

…Could Be There’s Nothing Else In Our Lives…

…So Critical…

…As This Little Hole. …

SIMPLE SONGIs The Lead Single Off Of The 2012 AlbumPORT OF MORROWBy THE SHINS !!!

This Nifty Little Number…

SIMPLE SONG

by THE SHINS

…Is One Of Those Tunes That Really Does Bring You UP A Notch.

It’s Fun.

It’s Quirky.

It’s Clever.

And It’s Totally A Smile-Spark’er.

πŸ˜€

SEE!!!

(hehehe)

Anyway…

…I Really Wish I Did Have More To Say About This One.

I’ve Been Hearing It Since February…

…And Haven’t Tired Of It…

…Yet.

πŸ˜‰

That’s A Good Sign, Though.

It’s Not Often I Make Mention Of Music That’s Super Recent Like This One.

I Mean…

…Seriously…

…How Many Times Have I Discussed Music With Y’all?

A Couple HUNDRED Times, Perhaps?

It’s Totally POSSIBLE, Right?

Okay.

My Point EXACTLY.

I Don’t Listen To The Radio Too Much.

I Listen To The Music I Already Have.

And Most Of It Is, Obviously, From The 1980s AND 1990s.

But Y’all Already Knew That.

THE SHINS

…Are Originally From The 1990s.

So That Works In My Favor.

But Their Work Has Always Been Hit-&-Miss With Me.

SIMPLE SONG

…However…

…Was An INSTANT Hit With Me.

After Hearing It Just Once I Was Ready To Snatch The Album.

Then I Had To Wait Until March Before The Album Was Actually Released.

ANYWAY…

…Yes…

SIMPLE SONG

by THE SHINS

…Is A Fun Song That I Really Enjoy.

And It Totally Makes Me SMILE!!!

Give It A Go, If You Haven’t Already.

It Ain’t Gonna Kill Ya.

Anything’s Possible, Sure…

…But I’m Banking On Your Survival.

L8r L8r, My Peeps!!!
