better than ezra triple play

Remember that song by better than ezra- desperately wanting? This morning it just came to me. Funny things happen like that.

Sometimes it's just what you need. Listen here: Desperately Wanting- Better than Ezra

Yes, it is not at all a happy or optimistic song. It's almost difficult to listen to if you focus on the lyrics. But, It still just hits the spot sometimes.

Okay, you're not in the mood for that. Try out Under You, my all time favorite Better than Ezra song. I fell in love with it as a college freshman. Here ya go: Under You

Or, finally, you could go for King of New Orleans: King Of New Orleans

Either way, you won't regret listening to these tunes.

And, i'll give ya some lyrics to read along as you listen to Under You. They're cute:
Along the edges colors blur, it seems familiar
While you read your magazine
I was counting all the markers

And California seemed to draw you like a siren
From a postcard
In a letter
Or a frame of film melting

Under you, I feel your breath move in and out slowly
Under you, let go completely feeling you take over me
Take over me

A Hollywood flat where we'd laugh about our fortunes
Where we held jobs in this bar down at 3rd and San Vicente
And Ramen Noodles at 4:30 in the morning,
Where we barely could survive, I was never more alive

Under you, I feel your blood flowing out slowly
Under you, let go completely feeling you take over me
Take over me

You moved in slow degrees
A sudden memory
You're a Leonard Cohen song

But every now and then I'd swear
I see you standing
On a sidewalk,
In a restaurant,
From a taxi passing by

Under you, I feel your breath move in, out slowly
Under you, let go completely, feeling you take over me

Take over me...

  1. I'm at work otherwise I'd listen to these! I can't think of a Better Than Ezra song off the top of my head, but I'm sure if I heard them I'd know them!
