Since having the pleasure of watching the band Cage the Elephant perform recently I have re-discovered my obsession with the song “Cigarette Daydream.”
I enjoy the song so much because it is a great song to listen to when you are in a bad mood and just want want to get lost in the melody of the song. The sweet and mellow melody, makes the song so memorable and can be stuck in your head for hours. The lead singer, Matt Shultz, has a very unique and one of a kind type of voice. He may not be the best singer in the world, but he pours his soul into the song.
With lyrics like “You can drive all night. Looking for the answers in the pouring rain”, you can tell that the song is about feeling lost and vulnerable, looking for answers to a relationship gone wary. This is something anyone could relate to, we all have gone through relationships where we feel lost.
