Everybody Here Wants You

2008- Here we are again at the end of another year. This year we certainly got some mixed reviews music-wise, but from my point of view, I did pretty well…. I discovered some mind-blowing talent, that someone cannot just write-off either if they haven’t listened to his music. He was enough reason why 2008 was a good year to launch a music blog. Not the easiest acts to write about but whatever music he left behind will last us all for decades. However enough of that, the 2008 ship is going to sail out and 2009 will be pulling into the harbor in a few more days.

The song that has made it on today’s post has a mix of uniqueness, substance and addictive appeal which, at the end of the day, means, surviving the new music at EC constantly. If there was a list of Top Discoveries I had to create then Jeff Buckley would settle at first place. That said; let's take a moment to silently pay our respects.........

Awesome, thanks.

Moving on, I’ve had the most amazing time writing and reviewing Jeff Buckley’s music, but this statement doesn't mean these write ups aren't over-- so, no worries.

This track has the right amount of pleasantness and grit. The intriguing blend of the ethereal and rustic. "Everybody here wants you" takes you to a moment on the brink of something just out of reach, amid wistful moments that fly by like blurred headlights. It exemplifies a certain quality in his music that is so difficult to pinpoint. His lyrical sensibilities with slicker, more stylized instrumentation- This song specifically, is a really great groove plus a good balance of bass and lighter, flickering sounds.

The bass alone is enough to grab anyone by the heart, but then his voice kicks in, the song builds in the chorus and you're just finished. It's a great way to spend five minutes. Loosely retro, just a bit bluesy, but ultimately timeless.
