Ultimate Playlist #471: Farewell December

I messed up. The first New Year’s Eve of the Ultimate Playlist I posted an Adele song. Nothing against Adele, but I should’ve posted this one.

Since the Ultimate Playlist will be over before next New Year’s Eve, it’s now or never.

I can just close my eyes and picture everything Matt Nathanson describes–I imagine two young lovers watching fireworks, alone together in a crowd of people, having no idea the tragedies that awaited them. The youthful exuberance always brings a tear to my eye. It’s not a sad song, exactly, but it just has a wistfulness that gets to me.
