Thought I’d share a song with y’all. This is “Skinny Love” by Bon Iver. Bon Iver is the pseudonym of Justin Vernon, a guy with a guitar who lived in a hunting cabin in northern Wisconsin one winter and wrote an outstanding album’s worth of songs. (A pretty talented guy.) The album is called “For Emma, Forever Ago.” Christi got it for me for my birthday, and I highly recommend it.
This is probably the hardest hitting song on the album. It’s about being frustrated with someone you love. It eloquently sums up feelings many of us have had, both in the lyrics (sheer poetry) and in his nearly shouted delivery. The chorus echoes I Corinthians 13. A thinking song, as a lot of his music is…hope you enjoy.
