“The Magic Position” — Patrick Wolf

16 10 2012

I only recently discovered this guy, and holy crap, he is amazing.  He is the pianist and songwriter that I aspire to be.

I cannot stop listening to this song.  It blows my mind not only because it’s so good, but also because, from what I know about him, he used to write really minor, gloomy songs (like me!).  In “The Magic Position”, he literally sings about “singing in the major key”, as if it’s such a big deal to finally be writing and singing an upbeat song.  I think that’s a pretty big thing to do — to be changed so much by someone as to sing and write different songs altogether.
