Song of The Day #173

"Skinny Love" by Bon Iver

Justin Vernon's career and cool factor have both received huge boosts from his involvement in Kanye's supposedly-perfect new album, and, while Vernon's work on that album--like everything on that album--is great, whenever I think of him and his voice I have to go back to "Skinny Love." I was (and still am) a little bit of a For Emma, Forever Ago hater, but "Skinny Love" is one of the most sincere, beautiful songs of the past decade. And that's a fact. It's goosebump-inducing every time.
