construXnunchuX Summer Jamz #5 - The National: Sunshine on My Back11:59:00 AMPaul Clemente
Ahhhhh, The National my favorite gloomy indie rock band. While this isn't a "Jam" per se, it's another gem in the crown of the Ohio quintet. They released this song by surprise online to accompany their documentary Mistaken for Strangers.
This song is a metaphor for fighting Meth addiction. It samples the lonely, painful, and dangerous side of addiction and laments "sunshine on my back the only kind I like" is the feeling of being clean and having it all behind him.
Disagree? Please do. Enjoy the song for yourself. For free. No bullshit.
