July Flame

Every once in a while you hear a song that just simply gets under your skin. You may not be able to explain why, but once you fall under its spell it stays with you, nagging at you to play it again. Its these rare songs that make me so happy to be a music freak!

One of those for me is Laura Veirs wonderful "July Flame", the title track from her underrated album of 2010. There is just something about the song that kills me. Maybe it's the innocence in her voice plainly and futilely asking "can I call you mine".

"July Flame
I'm seeing fireworks
They're so beautiful
Tell me why it hurts

It's such a deceptively simple song but one that has buried itself in my head. And I love it!!
