Song of the Week – This Year, The Mountain Goats

Ignored           Obscured            Restored

Whew!  2020 is finally over.  We can all agree that 2021 has to be better.

My final send off to 2020 is today’s SotW by the Mountain Goats.

This song is perfect for today if for no other reason than the signature line in the chorus – “I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.”

The version above is the studio version from The Mountain Goats’ 2005 album, The Sunset Tree.  But the song translates even better live, including the performance of it that the band did with Stephen Colbert in July 2019.  Wow, how did Colbert have such prescience?

Happy New Year!

Enjoy… until next week.
