What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Take Me to Church


Postmodern-Jukebox-1200-800The YouTube sensation best known for their uber-creepy-but-still-awesome cover of “Royals” fronted by Puddles, the 6’8″ “sad clown with a golden voice,” Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox does it again (and again, and again). I’ve blogged about them before with my post All About That (Upright) Bass, but since they keep using different lead singers and switching up styles, I feel like it’s not cheating to write about them again.

This week’s musical inspiration/obsession is their cover of Hozier’s “Take Me to Church,” which I loved to begin with, but sung as a torch song by Morgan James, it’s seriously powerful.

And I cannot resist including this one. It’s a little bit of an inside joke. I spent 2003 with this stupid song running though my head on a damned loop. But every time I’d successfully purge it, my wife and our housemate would start singing it. It’s a miracle I didn’t commit murder. I’m cured now, mostly, so here’s a great cover of Fountains of Wayne’s hit, “Stacey’s Mom.”

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!
