Song Of The Week: The Fall

Top Ten Plus One Reasons to love The Fall by Brendan James

1 It's piano-based and piano is superior to guitar. Period.
2 It screams for a slot in the background of, you know, Vampire Diaries.
3 He's like the lovechild of Sara Bareilles and David Gray.
4 It name-checks a Ryan Adams (not The Corrs!) song.
5 And is set in New York.
6 He went to UNC.
7 He tweets... and it appears to really be him.
8 You can also download a free track, Stupid For Your Love, on his site.
9 Tough guy is releasing his eponymous new album on "Super Tuesday," September 7.
10 He looks a bit like the son of Dr Evil [ed: I fear he may not like this one]
11 And finally, the first line sounds like "She is fucking in slow motion." It's not.

Love it! You had me at the Ryan Adams mention (one of my favorite songs!).
