The 59 Sound

The Gaslight Anthem

‘When we float out into the ether in the everlasting arms’ 

I love the tone of the singer’s voice, it overcomes the sad subject matter of the lyrics. It’s not a happy song, but it is a powerful one, and references Jacob Marley from the Christmas Carol. The line I’ve highlighted is one that strikes me as being particularly evocative within the song.
