'You Run Away' and 'Golden Boy' from the latest Barenaked Ladies album make me want to cry. If they're not about Steven, they at least give the impression that they are, and, ugh. Some of my very favourite BNL songs are Ed-sung, he is awesome, and I've always really enjoyed songs by Kevin and Jim, but BNL just don't sound the same without Steven's breathtaking vocals and it hurts. I downloaded a Stevenful-BNL version of 'Close to You' from iTunes last night that I'd never heard before, and I practically melted into a puddle of goo.
I'm a terrible BNL fan because I've never really known much about them beyond the music (that I listen to about 65% of my music listening time), and to be honest, I think I would have been happier not knowing anything. I think I'm going to put 'Break Your Heart' on repeat for the next two hours and sob a bit.
