One of the more annoying aspects of music blogging is deciding what genre a song belongs in. A lot of the times they are too narrow, and you don’t want to just shove it into one that it doesn’t really belong in. The genre for this song would be too long, something like “sad piano song with even sadder lyrics, and let’s top it off with some sad vocals.” Criminy, the piano in this is so simple but as addictive as crack (the good stuff, too). Maybe the genre can be called “sad piano crack.” This fellow was a random recommendation from, bless their souls. I’ve downloaded both of his albums but haven’t managed to make it past this song yet.
