Love Yr Captors


Yo La Tengo "Stockholm Syndrome"

[right click to download, ctrl click if yr a mac!]

So it's been established that I'm a big fan of Swedish indie rock, but what about Stockholm Syndrome? The psychological state of falling in love with your captor? Well i've never experienced it myself, but Yo La Tengo wrote a great song of the same name on their 1997 LP 'I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One', and it's one of my favorite songs.

This quiet acoustic strum-along will make you feel sad and happy at the same time with it's subtle chord progressions. If you've ever been kidnapped by Turkish pirates and ended up embracing them as your own family (I believe Steve Malkmus wrote a song on the subject) then you'll understand what this song is about: love. It may be love induced by an unstable psychological state of torment, but hey, love is love. And if you ever do get kidnapped (god forbid) you may be surprised how easy it is to fall in love with their lovely lovin'. This is the most nonsensical post i've written yet. Just enjoy the song.
