“…go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely.”

“7 Years” by Lukas Graham | This week being Holy Week, we feel a bit compelled to write about a quiet song, or at least a relatively quiet one, because Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” isn’t exactly hush-hush. But it forces you to contemplate. Hell, it’s a pretty sad song, if I can say so. “7 Years” is a sad song. (Save for the explosion in the music video.) Caught it a few times on my commute – it’s very likely local radio stations are playing this now, but the band being Danish might stack their odds here… but you’ll never know. The Europeans love this song, it seems, and for good reason: it’s a straight-to-the-gut song, appealing to a very universal fear of not living up to expectations. Surely this band’s past that hurdle now. [NB]
