    Anyone else IN LOVE with Bon Iver? Everytime I hear a Bon Iver song, I melt.

    They're not for everyone, I know. Flume was the first song I heard from them, and it was magical - like the first winter snow, so honest and pure, but warm underneath. I could talk about them and their songs for hours, lol.

    Lord, why do I bother. Someone put up another Madonna thread, and let's call it a night.

    "Woods" is their best. Beautiful. And they are from Wisconsin, which makes them even better. icon_smile.gif

    I'd take this over Madonna anyday. This wasn't bad, I just prefer rock.

    Our MPR rock station here started playing them before anyone had even heard of them, and I've loved them from the start. If you go to the website for 89.3 The Current, you should be able to find some live performances from their studio in the archives along with interviews.

    Yeah, I dig what Kanye did to the song, but to me it doesn't compare with the original. Not a huge fan of auto-tune, but it was very purposeful in the song. The lyrics are so simple, and although it's said on repeat, it just crescendo's and becomes this cry out to the universe. Only a few more minutes before SNL starts off icon_smile.gif

    Dude, that's so awesome. When I listen to their music, time stands still. Even after listening to their songs a hundred times, I still do.

    We're watching it together! The first New Gingrich skit is mildly funny. I wonder what song BI will sing? Probably stuff from their new album.

    If you're new to Bon Iver, I find that Skinny Love is a nice intro song for them:

    Watching the show now - and I did not know Tatum was a stripper. Whoa. And apparently a good one.

    Skinny Love is probably the closest thing to pop they come to. It was about a relationship Justin Vernon had - it was this love that was malnourished and unsustainable, but it was still love.

    LOL, not every week (and I think it's a bit over-done).
