Song of the Day 4/29/08: Osborne - There
"There," as its title might suggest, is really quite simple. It starts off with a thin and tinny drum machine, tempered by soft bells and keys, which recall the sensation of being alone in a strange place at dusk. From there, it's a sort of peaceful wandering: you're visiting an unfamiliar but nonthreatening city, and you've got all night to find your way back to your hotel. This a dark track, but without the sense of panic - Osborne offers in its place an air of muted anticipation.
