I want you endlessly (these things are fabulously out of our hands)

fyfe dangerfield

This song was love at first listen, sauntering out of my speakers with a cocky dip-shake-dip move of the hips and that unbridled scream of exuberance. Fyfe Dangerfield is the lead singer of The Guillemots, and this is off his forthcoming solo album Fly Yellow Moon, due January 2010. It’s all kinds of soulful, riotous fun — an instant yell-out-loud favorite.

Also: when you have a name like Fyfe Dangerfield, you sure as heck better have a moustache.

  • I like how incredibly happy he is to be in love. He is indestructible. His whole manner is absolutely ecstatic. And he can’t help but share that, by scribbling down his thoughts or singing them at the top of his lungs. We’ve all felt that way before at some point, yes? We can all empathize, right? Fyfe helps us to remember that feeling … and everybody likes to remember happiness, especially if it has some of that love stuff attached.

  • That is a dang nifty little cut. Really like that Yahoo player you got, too. Purty slick, girlfriend. Gotta run. I just pooped and I’m standing up in the kitchen, so that’s not good.

  • Hi there,

    Well I’ve just woken up (very) late on a Monday morning with a surprise day off of work and I realised I hadn’t checked out your gem-sharing blog in far too long.
    I have enjoyed some of The Guillemots previous output and feel that Fyfe is probably one of these gifted songwriters who has so many melodies and layers in his head that his most difficult stage is sifting through them to focus on any one particular song.
    From the opening almost yearning gasp for air this was unadulterated joy right from the get-go!
    Thank you for drawing this to my attention – I adore it.

  • thanks scott! i *adore* it too; i have seriously listened to this song probably close to 40 times this weekend. i love the crazy apex of the song after the lyrics about “all of these old addresses, all of these empty guesses, you carry all of that weight on your back– ” and then the “thank you!” It just hits this marvelous stride that i can’t get enough of. i’m still in love with it.

  • Well I’m on about my 6th play already, which isn’t like me, I try not to binge. But this one has a very firm hold on me.
    It’s so defiant in it’s exuberance!
    I look forward to playing it in the car at an unreasonable volume and getting to know it inside out!
    Between this and Norah Jones cover of “Jesus Etc.” from her newest album – the deluxe version, I’m having a fab Monday!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
