Monday Morning Music: I Will Follow You into the Dark by Death Cab for Cutie

Happy Monday Morning to you all,

Today is a death-cab-for-cutie-kind-of-day. With it storming all weekend, and with the day now cloudy, hazy and endlessly lazy, I am feeling a tad mellow.

The song I have chosen today comes from Death Cab for Cutie’s album, “Plans.” Written during a difficult period of life, singer/writer Ben Gibbard penned the song as a recognition of the value in relationships and a more serious view of what happens after death. “I Will Follow You into the Dark” is a promise made from one lover to another. A promise that says that, no matter what happens, I will be right behind you. Forever.

So, on a melancholy Monday morning, enjoy this gem of a song.

Bonus: A fan’s interesting artistic depiction of the song.
