I tried to chase things I couldn't get
One of my all time favorite songs is "Oh Mandy" by the Spinto Band. I love other songs by them as well. But there are just some perfectly written lyrics in there that just make me feel a way that words cannot explain, and the melody is bittersweet it can make you cry. I even learned to play this song on the guitar so I can sing it myself. Such a beautiful song. Oh, and this band! Onstage, this band has an amazing amount of energy that just lets you know how passionate they are about what they do. Luckily, I got to see them last Saturday when they played in LA. I kept missing their other shows when they were in town so I was glad to finally see them again. Mandy was the last song of their set. If you payed close attention, you will have seen his hand gestures when he's singing my favorite part of the song.
