“Don’t Give Up” LAKE

I don’t know how I did it, but I managed to leave LAKE’s “Don’t Give Up” off of my top songs of 2009. What was I thinking? This song is so good. So good that I listened to it at least 10 times in a row while stuck in traffic.

I love the horns in this and totally don’t care that it sounds a little AM Radio/Easy Listening/whatever. It’s bleak and it’s cold and it’s too warm to snow but too wet to rain, so slush is coming down from the sky and it generally feels like a pretty miserable existence right now, but when I’m listening to this song, I feel GREAT & great is what I need right now.

“Don’t Give Up” is off of LAKE’s second full-length, Let’s Build A Roof. They just wrapped up a tour with Karl Blau (I’m still kicking myself for not seeing them when they were in Cleveland). You can order Let’s Build A Roof from K Records.
