If you thought last week was a bit cheesy, with this song of the week we are going to complete that cheesiness and maybe more.
Maybe most of you know Fun. , but not everybody knows many of the first album’s songs or EPs around that time. And this song as one of them, you can immediately realise that is from their early beginning of the band by listening to the lyrics. It’s pretty normal to read lyrics based on their daily life when they are not famous yet and then their evolution (or sometimes involution) in poetry, makes those lyrics not so attached to real life situations because the use of the metaphor becomes more frequent.
In this song, Nate Ruess (Lead Vocals) is telling the story of his parents’ life which is really nice how he talks about their love and then all the scenes he had on his mind while composing the song. Instruments and arrangement are precise for the atmosphere of what is he telling. Cheesiness is at a really high level after this and this week will be piano covers and cheesy songs.
Have a great cheesy week!
P.S.: If you didn't notice yet, I was lying about not getting too cheesy. Just to let you all know ;)

About the curator - Rodrigo Medrano
At a very early age, music had an incredible impact on Rodrigo’s life. He was never able to listen to lullaby songs; instead he was served Guns n’ Roses and Aerosmith for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
At the age of 12, he became a melomaniac, collecting albums, EP’s, recording sessions, and researching every kind of genre. All this helped him to get his first job at a recording studio where he realized his life would forever revolve around sound and music.
Working on cruise ships as First Audio Technician allowed him to let loose his passion and expand his knowledge on psychoacoustics, eventually promoted up to being in charge of sound for the hit broadway shows: Rock of Ages and Burn The Floor.
His music library will never stop growing as his melomania will get worse and worse.
