Music Matters

Nowadays I judge music pretty much by this one criterion -- how inspirational is it to work out to? So, I'm not downloading a lot of slow songs, but I had to make an exception for this remarkable track from Gaslight Anthem "Here's Looking At You, Kid." It's a hauntingly beautiful love song to every girl who ever rejected the singer or broke his heart. (By the way, most of Gaslight Anthem's stuff is great rock and roll workout music, albeit a tinge morbid at times. They and Marah are my two favorite bands at the moment. I'm happy to say it looks like I was wrong: there may indeed be rock and roll after Guns and Roses.)
Note: The song is only 3:33 don't ask me why this "video" goes on so much longer.

I like this song a lot. I've noticed that I do agree with your music taste. Throw some more my way. As for now, I'm going to check out more of these guys' songs.
