Reason to Love the G-Phrase
I’m sure that if I were to take the time to make a comprehensive list, there would be thousands of reasons to love the g-phrase. Her good points are legion, her quirks cute, and her bad qualities--well, does she really have any bad qualities? Aside from bad taste in bloggers, that is?
Anyway, this isn’t about all or her good qualities, this is about one of her good qualities: she digs Screaming Trees.
When we were driving home from watching a particularly underwhelming laser light show thingy at Gates Planetarium at the museum here in Denver and listening to the Trees’ Dust, she was doing the cute little head bob with the cute little smile, singing along occasionally. When “Dying Days” came on, though, she really started getting into the song. Adorable, no?
Keep in mind that “Dying Days” is a freakin’ great song. It starts with an acoustic guitar and light keyboard while Lanegan sings quietly and suddenly Barrett Martin’s drums and the electric guitars kick in. If you pay attention, you’ll notice the almost soul-flavored keyboards swerving along in the background as the song keeps building in intensity and Lanegan attacks the vocals with passion.
Seriously good rock.
Not only does the g-phrase get into the song while we’re in the car, but she continues to sing snippets of the song randomly for a few hours.
Yeah, I’ll probably keep her.
