NPR had a great special yesterday about Ben Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie’s lead singer, and his new solo album “Former Lives.”  This is my favorite single on it right now – evidently he wrote the lyrics based on love letters between F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda. The letters he looked at spanned the entirety of their tumultuous relationship…. the chorus: “It’s bigger than love, brighter than all the starts combined; it’s dwarfing the sun and burning within my heart and mind.” Bless NPR for opening my eyes to such a find! Happy Sunday people!
