Song of the Day – Tracks in the Snow by The Civil Wars

302310The Civil Wars are no more. This isn’t recent news but it is still eternally sad. This was a singing/writing duo that the world has never seen before and probably won’t see again in my lifetime. As we all know, John Paul and Joy’s chemistry can never be equaled but can be envied for eternity. I wish them the best but silently scream at them for splitting up!

The song, Tracks in the Snow(here is the youtube version) I hadn’t heard before last week (shocking I know…) but it really stuck out to me as it is one of those songs that Joy takes over, but is beautifully accompanied by John Paul’s lovely harmonies in the background of the discordant chords that he strums out. If you partied hard last night, it is a great recovery song. Here are the lyrics to accompany the video.

I think Casey and I are going to try covering it, but the piano part isn’t anywhere on the internet so we are going to have to figure those parts out by ear. It may take a few weeks… He already has the weird guitar part down, now it will be waiting on me!

Whoa, there’s a choir upon the wind
Singing old familiar hymns
And my ears they’re playing tricks on me
I can almost hear your harmony

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
