Vampire Weekend

It's no secret that I love Vampire Weekend. I remember their first album came out when I was in high school and I had it on repeat for weeks. I think there are very few bands that you can put on no matter what mood you are in and no matter the season. Dave Matthews is the only other "listen at anytime" music that I can think of on the top of my head. 

I was listening to my VW playlist the other night on my hour commute home from work and I was realizing how much I love the lyrics to the songs too. Their music puts me in a great mood and reminds me of summertime. Here are my favorite lyrics from different VW songs! 

"As a young girl

Louis Vuitton
With your mother
On a sandy lawn"

"No excuse to be so callous

Dress yourself in bleeding madras
Charm your way across the Khyber Pass"

"Lights by the ocean

A westerly motion that moves California to sea
Eyes like a seagull"

Don't you know
That it's insane?
Don't you want to
Get out of Cape Cod?
Out of Cape Cod tonight?"

"The pin-striped men of morning

Are coming for to dance
With pure Egyptian Cotton

"Winter's cold is too much to handle
Pincher crabs that pinch at your sandals"

What are your favorite VW lyrics or songs? Have a fabulous day!

I LOVE VW too! I'm constantly listening to it & have so many of their songs in different playlists. And I've been hearing that they'll have a new album in 2013.

I've been a VW fan from the beginning as well! I listened to Contra on the way home from school for the holidays.
