Song of the Day #1,776: ‘Dandelion’ – Kacey Musgraves

kacey_musgraves_same_trailerA few weeks back I posted that I had just ordered Same Trailer Different Park, the major label debut of Kacey Musgraves.

Musgraves is the shiny new object in country music circles, drawing favorable comparisons to both Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift. Her embrace of gay rights caught the attention of Ellen DeGeneres and the fact that those lyrics haven’t put her in the country music doghouse is a great sign for the future.

Hype aside, Musgraves is certainly the real deal. Like Swift, her stellar songwriting compensates for her rather ordinary vocals. This batch of songs sounds like something from a seasoned veteran, not a 24-year-old on her first studio album.

Picked you out and picked you up
Hoping that my luck would change
I let the summer fill my lungs
And superstition fill my brain

Dandelion
A million little wishes blow across the sky
But it’s a waste of breath and it’s a waste of time, I know
Cause just like him, you always leave me cryin’ dandelion

Sent you dancing on the breeze
And like a stupid little girl
I spent my wishes on a weed
Thinking it could change my world

Dandelion
A million little wishes blow across the sky
But it’s a waste of breath and it’s a waste of time, I know
Cause just like him, you always leave me cryin’ dandelion

Falling stars and lucky pennies
Have let me down so many times before
And you’re just one more
Oh, dandelion

Oh, dandelion
I’m always blowing kisses out across the sky
But it’s a waste of breath and it’s a waste of time, I know
Cause just like him, you always leave me cryin’ dandelion
Dandelion

    The video would not play for some reason, and I couldn’t find another clip on YouTube. Hopefully, you can find one to post.

    Hmm.. this one is working for me now. Maybe it was just down temporarily.
