Daniel Johnston has a really sad story.  Actually, he has about fifteen albums full of really sad stories.  I love this song, though, because it’s a little happy sounding…for better or worse, I still like to listen on a sunny day.  I also love him because he’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and is still super important in the indie music scene.

Daniel Johnston: Impossible Love

He Is Legend was a band I never liked much; it seemed all the hipster emo kids at the radio station were waaaaay too into them, and heaven forbid I like something everyone else liked.  Plus, they were a bit whiny for my taste.  This song, however, found it’s way into my consciousness (likely on a hastily composed mixtape), and showed up on my Spotify recommendations a few weeks ago.  I figured I’d take the hint and listen again.

He Is Legend: The Seduction

When I started college, Sparta was my band, man.  Although they have multiple amazing tunes, which will likely be found later in the TBT archives, this was my all time favorite off their first album when the two halves of At The Drive In split (the other half turned into The Mars Volta, which I can’t stand).
