Northern Lights

When you mix the sound of New Order, The Cure, The Smiths, Alphaville, and Joy Division, the result is pure magic.  This is the case with “Northern Lights” by Death Cab For Cutie.  On their new album, “Thank You For Today”, the band reinvigorated themselves and they sound incredible!

“Northern Lights” will most likely be my song of the year.  It captures everything I loved about the other bands and shows how adaptable Death Cab is to bring that sound into the 21st Century.  Heck, at this point, it could wind up being my song of the decade.  When I replay it about 50 times in a row and don’t get sick of it, I know it’s a keeper!

This blog has been on the heavy side and going on all cylinders lately so I thought it would be good to get something a little uplifting out there, even if it is just a song!

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
