Song Of The Week: Float On

A month of covers continues! This weeks selection is Ben Lee's Float On, originally done by Modest Mouse on their Good News For People Who Love Bad News [Explicit] album.

I remember the first time I heard the Modest Mouse version I loved it. The lyrics were awesome and it was just one of those songs that you could smile and sing-along to. Lively and happy, with a message that no matter how bad things seem you can just "Float On" and everything will be okay. Great anthem if you ask me. My favorite verse...

"Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands.

Good news will work its way to all them plans."

The Ben Lee version is soft, and reminds me a bit of a lullaby. I adore the simplicity of it, and love walking Waldo and taking it all in.

So go ahead and "Float On" this lovely Monday morning.
