“Stubborn Love” by The Lumineers
by Megan Jones, Editor-in-Chief
The less known Denver band, with instrumental tracks similar to Mumford & Sons, is better known for their song “Ho Hey,” which is ranked fifth on iTunes alternative chart. The meaning to the song is pretty basic, he’s in love with a girl who just continuously hurts him. But it really doesn’t matter to him. Personally, I don’t necessarily fall in love with the beginning of the song, but from one minute in- I start to enjoy as the music picks up and the drums become more powerful.
“When we were young, Oh Oh, we did enough
When it got cold, Ooh Ooh, we bundled up
I can’t be told, Ah Ah It can’t be done.
It’s better to feel pain, than nothing at all.
The opposite of love’s indifference.
So pay attention now, I’m standing on your porch screaming out
And I won’t leave until you come downstairs.
So keep your head up.”
