she said i think i'll go to boston....

You don't know me, you don't even care,
oh yeah,
She said you don't know me,
and you don't wear my chains... oh yeah,

She said I think I'll go to Boston...
I think I'll start a new life,
I think I'll start it over, where no one knows my name...

-'Boston' by Augustana

First, let's clear this up. I did not find this song via that Greyson kid on Ellen, I was pleasantly surprised that he knew about it though. And I am so sick of all the twitter stuff about him XP. I found this because I was listening through some Scrubs soundtracks, and this one was just too beautiful. It's been on repeat for a while on my iPod. Oh, and I love fonts (cause I'm a total geek) so I made a picture-thingy as well.

Anyways, that aside, I think this is a really beautiful song, the melody is smooth and lulling, the lyrics are excellent, and the voice is pitch perfect. Watch the video below, isn't it awesome? They have an actual music video too, but I really like the simpleness of this one.

I haven't done a song post in a while, so why not one this week? I'm still prepping my other reviews that should be up soon,; I've read some pretty awesome books so keep an eye out for those. Your thoughts on the song? And what are your favourite songs at the moment?


  1. I don't believe I've heard of Augustana before. The lyrics sound sad, but like you said, the song is soothing. I like the singer's voice. :3

    Some songs I like at the moment:
    The Reeling by Passion Pit
    Golden Star, Inside A Boy, To Pluto's Moon (Son Lux Remix), and Dragonfly by My Brightest Diamond

  2. I really like Augustana. My favorite song from them is "Stars and Boulevard" and "Lonely People". You should definitely check out their other songs. They're really great.

  3. I love the Scrubs soundtrack - I just listened to it the other day. Nice song!!
    I have a good CD from VW (the car maker) too. Same type of music.

  4. Aww I love this song! I actually went to their concert a few weeks ago, it was awesome :D
