Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases the talented band, Death Cab for Cutie, with their song, “Stay Young, Go Dancing,” off their album, Codes and Keys, through Atlantic Records. The video was just released, as it debuted on YouTube September 26th, and debuted on television, on the Fuse’s Top 20 Countdown, this past Tuesday. The video is directed by Claire Carre.
The band, comprised of Benjamin Gibbard, Nicholas Harmer, Jason McGerr, and Christopher Walla, continue to make incredible music, which is not only true to themselves, but that really carries a message and means something. Such is the case with today’s featured song, which is accompanied by a wonderful video.
Death Cab for Cutie will be a fixture on the troubadour’s road, and that is, as it should be.
These words find their place in their song, “Stay Young, Go Dancing,”
“Life is sweet in the belly of the beast
In the belly of the beast
And with her song in your heart, it can never bring you down
It can never bring you down
Lost in a maze of a thousand rainy days
Of a thousand rainy days
But when I heard her voice, oh it led me to the end
Yes it led me to the end
Cause when she sings I hear a symphony
And I’m swallowed in sound as it echoes through me
I’m renewed, oh how I feel alive and through autumn’s advancing
We’ll stay young, go dancing
As the music plays
Feel our bodies’ sway
When we move as one
We stay young
