I'll admit upfront: I'm not hip to the latest and greatest in the music scene. Part of that is just that I don't listen to a lot of radio and part of that is that my tastes are pretty eclectic. I listen to everything from Rachmaninoff to Pink Martini, Frank Sinatra to Celine Dion, The Dixie Chicks to Johnny Mathis, Melissa Etheridge to P.I. Tchaikovsky. And, I adore Christmas music.
A couple of months ago, a friend sent me a compilation of songs she put together that included the song "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol on their album Eyes Open. I enjoy this song. A lot. So much so, I went to iTunes the other night and bought the entire album. If you like Matchbox Twenty or Rob Thomas, you'll like Snow Patrol. Strong lyrics, good acoustics, easy on the ears, fun to sing along with.
Having said all that, you're probably going to tell me I'm way behind the curve and Snow Patrol is so last year. Oh well. I'm enjoying it for now. You might, too.
