As listed in my earlier post, “The Cave” by Mumford & Sons is one of my favorite songs of the moment. While I’ve always been a fan ofÂ singer-songwriters, I’ve never really been invested in folk music, and none with a banjo. But this new wave of folk music coming out of the UK is really amazing and inspiring. There is something very melodic and therapeutic about this song. They lyrics are very inspiring, and the tone of the singers is calming. I even like the banjo! Banjo… this song has a banjo in it and it’s not only ok, it’s great! The banjo is one of my favorite parts of the song.
The video below is an acoustic version of the song, and it is more amazing than the original. I enjoy seeing them play all the instruments, and also really hearing them. I also enjoy the way the singer pronounces and puts emphasis certain words, especially the line “you cannibal, you meat-eater, you see”. So great!
