Music Geek Track Of The Week: “Your Ex-Lover Is Dead”
By Becca Gleason on October 12, 2012
This Friday, I feel like throwin’ it back a few years. Fall is a time for reflection. The leaves are changing again – if you live in a place that has leaves that change – and spiked cider is now appropriate to drink! Yay! So, it’s been one of those weeks where I revisited songs that I used to listen to over and over again 5 or 6 years ago. I guess I got sick of them, or I probably discovered new songs to overplay, but thankfully iTunes shuffle does not hold prejudices. When this gem reappeared into my life, I felt that maybe some other nerds out there would like the reintroduction as much as I did. It’s time to resurrect this song: Your Ex-Lover Is Dead, by Stars.
I wont bore you with long, Pitchforky explanations about why this song makes my heart beat fast, but I haven’t found many who dislike it (I mean, it was on The O.C.). It flows perfectly with autumn and its dark tone will mesh well with the spooky season. So if you’re bummed that something edgier isn’t out, just remember to dig deep into that computer and you might find something as magical. Who knows, maybe even this.
