Song Lyric Sunday: Indie Music

Join Jim and everyone else here: https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2022/12/03/independent-music/

First, I will honestly admit I never knew what “Indie” meant. I just took it in stride. This week the theme is to find Indie Rock or Indie Pop songs. 

I have heard of Death Cab for Cutie, Florence, and the Machine, R.E.M., The Cure, Lana Del Ray, Bastille, and Nervana. I just found those off a list on “the google machine”.

I don’t really know if this is Indie rock because it doesn’t say so either way but one of my most favorite songs right now is Little Bird, by The Ghost of Paul Revere.

Brody jumped up to sit next to me while I was playing this video so I restarted it and he couldn’t take his eyes off of it!

Lyrics

Oh little bird
Sitting on a powerline
Sweet little thing

Don’t you know you caught my eye
Well spread your wings and come over to me
I said spread your wings and come over to me

Oh little bird
Did you hear the song of mine
Spitting up words
Taunted blood and wine
Well it tells of my love
But you dont need the pain of mine
Yes it tells of my love
But you dont need the pain of mine

When your bones feel hollow
Do you tremble do you shake
Do you cry when youre all alone
Do you scream out loud
I can show you how little birdie
If you show me home
When your bones feel hollow
When you tremble you shake
Do you cry when Youre all alone
Can you scream out loud
I can show you how
Little birdie if you show me home

Sing whoa whoa whoa whoa

Oh little bird
Did you hear the sorrow I
Hold in my heart
Which is buried deep inside

Sing it aloud and sing it to me
I said sing it aloud and sing it to me

Say whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa

Do your bones feel hollow
Do you tremble do you shake
Do you cry when you’re all alone
Do you scream out loud
I can show you how
Little birdie if you show me home
Do your bones feel hollow
Do you tremble do you shake
Do you cry when you’re all alone
Do you scream out loud
I can show you how
Little birdie if you show me home

Do your bones feel hollow
Do you tremble do you shake
Do you cry when you’re all alone
Can you scream out loud
I can show you how
Little birdie if you show me home

Do your bones feel hollow
Do you tremble do you shake
Do you cry when you’re all alone
Can you scream out loud
I can show you how
Little birdie if you show me home

  1. I have no idea wth indie means either. I was kinda hoping you were going to tell me. Well, maybe someone in your comment’ll cover it.

  2. You made an excellent choice Christine and since Indie rock is not that well defined, it is really up to you. I never heard of this group or listened to this song, but it does have a nice sound and I like the hand clapping. Is that your dog? I like the way her ears perk up and she smiles and bops her head around to the music, assuming she is a girl.
