Music // "Here Comes My Man" by The Gaslight Anthem




For my first Music Monday, I'd like to feature the latest song from my all-time favorite band, The Gaslight Anthem. I first discovered them in 2007 when a friend introduced me to them. Since then, they've come out with three more albums and each one better than the last.

Their sound is that perfect mix of rock and soul bringing ideologies to life with lyrics such as "The 59 Sounds" says, "Well, I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go./I hope it's something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow." 

In "Here Comes My Man," they examine relationships and what makes them worthwhile. Rolling Stone describes the video as: The Gaslight Anthem's new video for "Here Comes My Man" finds Elisha Cuthbert bailing out of a lifeless relationship and heading to the movies. As she watches a romance film in an otherwise empty theater, Cuthbert finds herself transported into the action, intercut with scenes of the Gaslight Anthem playing for a fist-pumping crowd. Alas, her cinematic romance proves illusory and Cuthbert is soon back in reality – but it's a reality in which she possesses a newfound strength, and is ready to secure her own happiness.

What do you think of this song? Tell me in the comments below.
