The Past and Pending by the Shins



Can I share a song with you? It’s a song I recently rediscovered from The Shins’ first release, “Oh, Inverted World”. Think of your favourite 60s pop played underwater, throw in a little whimsy and you’ve got the Shins. I just love them.

I’ve listened to this song about a dozen times this week … mostly because it reminds me of my dad and I imagine myself singing it to him while we travel somewhere far away. He passed away seventeen years ago and would have been fifty-seven this week. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long.

Have a listen. Perhaps you too will be reminded of that complicated, special someone. If anything, enjoy the tune, it’s a good one.

    I worship the Shins. Worship.

    My Dad died a year ago last Friday…maybe they’re up there having a 50 together.
