Music Tuesdays - Skinny Love by Bon Iver

This song is a Royce special (i.e. acoustic and folksy) - Aaron need not apply. Sorry dude.


  1. Beautiful song. I saw Bon Iver live and basically weeped the entire time. Ha, well not really, but he moves you to tears.

  2. Wow fast reaction time. Dude I know what you mean - I can't help but get like chills every time I listen to this song, it's crazy. Something about his voice is emotionally stirring; he kind of reminds me of Thom Yorke in that way.

    Where/when did you see Bon Iver?

  3. I appreciate the warning Royce. If not for the warning, I may have wept also...but for an entirely different reason.

    Also, I like the idea of dubbing songs like this a "Royce special", but unfortunately, much like you can't give yourself a nickname, you can't determine what your own special is. (Unless you are invited to by a local deli owner...then I would take ham, turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese, thin mayo or Miracle Whip, mustard and avocado on wheat bread. Bacon is optional on an "Agte Special", the avocado is not.)

  4. I'll take salami, turkey, sharp cheddar (or pepper-jack, on occasion), mayo (light!), deli mustard, lettuce, red onion, an pepperoncinis on dutch crunch please.

    I'll pass on the song.
