Is anyone familiar with Mumford and Sons? I have this secretive love for folk-rock, especially English or Scottish folk-rock, because I mean really, really, who can turn down some banjo, dobro and string bass all in one? Who?
Their most recent hit is called “Little Lion Man”, and goes a little something like this “Well it was not your fault but mine / And it was your heart on the line / I really fucked it up this time, / didn’t I, my dear?” and the lyrics repeatedly refer to the singular audience, as “my man” and “little lion man”. I, well, naturally, now want to call everyone “little lion man” and hope that they know what I’m talking about…or maybe just get wildly excited that they get to be referred to as a lion.
I would love that, wouldn’t you?
