They Keep Tryin’ to Row Away, Row Away

because great songs deserve great outfits

If you need a new favorite song, allow me to suggest All the Rowboats by Regina Spektor.  It’s Ms. Spektor at her best, with copious amounts of bold piano; an interesting, witty perspective; and quirky, slightly-dark lyrics that will cement themselves into your brain.

Here are a few:

“First there’s lights out, then there’s lock up: masterpieces serving maximum sentences

It’s their own fault for being timeless.  There’s a price to pay and a consequence

All the galleries, the museums.  Here’s your ticket, welcome to the tombs

They’re just public mausoleums. The living dead fill every room”

“All the rowboats in oil paintings; they keep trying to row away…

They’ll keep hanging in their gold frames

For forever, forever and a day”

You’ll never see museums in the same way again, am I right?

Now watch this, if you’re not already totally in love with Regina Spektor.  (Oh and if you are, that totally works too.)
