This week has been a rather busy week, so not only is this week’s list late, but it is shorter than I would have liked. Regardless, the songs on this list are worth noting and deserve as much attention as they can get. Enjoy!

Bobby Long- Something’s

Earlier this week, I was thrilled to discover that Bobby Long had uploaded another “Song of the Week” on his website. Those who follow Bobby Long look forward to these small treasures that he shares with his fans. The new song Something’s does not disappoint. Bobby Long’s voice on this track is deep, beautiful, and reminds me of Johnny Cash at some points. Backed by just a guitar, Bobby Long’s lyrics in this song are touching and worth listening to. Something’s definitely has me excited and impatient for Bobby Long’s next album.

The River and the Road- Straw, Brick, and Wood

For the past few days I have been addicted to Straw, Brick, and Wood by The River and the Road.  I enjoy the up-beat flow of the instruments and the way that they are complimented by the vocals. With lyrics such as “When you finally have the strength to go know that somebody still loves you so”, I can easily pull strength from this song. I may or not have kept this song on repeat for a couple of hours.

Flogging Molly- If I Ever Leave This World Alive

If I Ever Leave This World Alive by Flogging Molly is a ridiculously beautiful song off of the Drunken Lullabies album. Anytime I listen to this song, I think of my friends and how much I care about them. It matters not the nature of my mood or location, as soon as I hear the intro to this song I think of my friends. Since I have been missing them a lot lately, it’s only natural for me to wallow in this song.
