Frightened Rabbit – Get Out
The annual appearance of a moody, melodic, Scottish rock band on the list! I think “Get Out” is another one that first showed up on a KEXP podcast for me, and then I think it popped up on Pandora for me a few times. And it’s just one of those songs that keeps growing on you.
It’s got this great opening line (“I’m in the arch of the chuch, between her thumb and her forefinger, I’m a worshipper”). It’s Frightened Rabbit’s typical melancholy style, and then it hits the chorus, and you get that great “Get out of my heart, she won’t, she won’t” for the first time. How can you not be hooked?
They also know that this little beauty could run out of gas, so it bows out before you even get to three and a half minutes. A little bit of brooding perfection.
