Here’s one more killer track for the countdown and your ultimate 100 Songs of Summer playlist. Depressing or uplifting? You decide.
100 Songs of Summer #83
“The Funeral” by Band of Horses
This dark yet somehow uplifting tune about a man mourning his dog (according to some interpretations) is from Band of Horses 2006 debut Everything All the Time. Haunting, authentic and atmospheric, “The Funeral” builds into powerful crescendo before slowly taking listeners back down to earth.
It’s a magical song that could be the soundtrack for any Hamptons summer scene. And it triggers aching memories of scenes from summers past.
