Feeling the Pull

"Well, I'm heading back to pack a bag, to head out on the road to take AWAY what I know is mine..."

Does music move you? Inspire you? Fill you with joy?

Me, too.

High five.

My iPod is always with me, be it flowing in my ears or on my desktop. Ninety percent of my waking hours are filled with music. (On a side note, I think I might need a hearing test soon, but let's not focus on that right now.)

Each time I hear "Feeling the Pull" by The Swell Season, it never fails to lift my spirits. I'm ready to pack my bag, head out on the road, and take away what I know is mine - yes, Swell Season, I, too, am feeling so small against the big sky tonight! It is, in my humble opinion, the perfect traveling tune.

What's that? You've never heard "Feeling the Pull"?! Well, You Tube to the rescue, my friend! Check out the video above to view a live performance. In case you're wondering, that's Swell Season's charming frontman Glen Hansard giving his charming song introduction in his charming Irish accent.

I'm charmed. Is it obvious?

If you want to buy their entire album, Strict Joy - which boasts an astounding 32 tracks, both live and from the studio, and is quite possibly the best album I've purchased this century - you can do so here. (No pressure, of course.)

Feeling the pull? Which artists and songs inspire you on the road or at home? Share the music!
