Bon Iver

Skinny Love by Bon Iver:

This album makes me want to slow dance in the kitchen.

But Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) says this about the song's meaning: "Part of the trouble with the old haunting love, is that it [messes] with your future loves, and can damn and/or ambush your relationships."

Lately I've been getting frustrated because I am attracted to the way a song sounds, but the lyrics aren't what I want them to be. Does that ever happen to you? I fall in love with the sound of a song before I have a chance to pay attention to the lyrics, but then I realize it's about drugs or something sad. I guess a lot of great songs are, and that's what makes many of them interesting.
