Music or the Misery?

You know that scene from High Fidelity, the one at the very beginning where Rob wonders out loud whether people listen to pop music because they are miserable, or whether they are miserable because they listen to pop music? Well, I think of that line every time I listen to “I Would Be Sad” by the Avett Brothers. That song just murders my heart. Listen at your own peril.


  1. I just wanted you to know that I AM Rob Gordon. I’ve just been hiding all these years. Just sayin’

  2. The song, man. Focus on the song.
