Characters I Want to Know

I like The Young Republic. They've been all over the audio blog world, it's all been posted already. But I really like this particular song. It has this literary quality to it, and not in a "literate" way like it's all Decemberists or anything. By literary quality, in this case, I mean that the song evokes such a vivid setting full of emotional turmoil and characters I want to know. I love when songs take hold of me in that manner. Another song that does this for me is the Supergrass track, "Grace," from their '02 "Life on Other Planets" CD. I can see the kids jumping on the trampoline just bursting at the seams with stuff they want to say, but can't... but don't.

The Young Republic, "When I See Your Eyes I Swear to God Our Worlds Collide"
Supergrass, "Grace"
