Songs of the Decade : Nathan Moore "Yeah Yeahy" (2002)

I love this song more for its longing for days past more than anything else. I know I'm romanticizing a world/life that's mostly gone, but it's hard to not feel nostalgic for these times. This is probably why I'm drawn to songwriters like Hank Williams, Nick Drake, Bob Dylan and even contemporary throwbacks like Richard Buckner and Jeff Tweedy. I can watch The Grapes of Wrath over and over and I feel at home in the worlds of Faulkner and Russo. I guess I wish we lived in simpler times, and on this sweet folk song, Nathan Moore wishes for the same.
