Spoon is a band out of Texas who have been around for a while now. This song, I saw the light, is from their 7th studio album, Transference. The album is one of the few albums I can listen to over and over again without tiring of. There’s not a weak track on it.
I saw the light starts out a bit grungy and untidy, please bare with it. The lyric is worth it but it’s the instrumental at 2.35 that gets me every time It’s one of my most favorite pieces of music ever! It puts me in a better mood whenever I hear it!
I’m sorry there’s no better clip – the song was never a single and some kind person has just put this video together, but you can see the band in action on plenty of other YouTube videos. All of their stuff is great! The lead singer – Britt Daniels who writes the bands material is the dude hanging over the front. He’s often not too hard to look at in a “take you home to Mama type of way”.
