“Distraction #74” by The Avett Brothers
“Distraction #74” from the album Four Thieves Gone: The Robbinsville Sessions, released in 2006
Has there ever been a song about cheating on your significant other that is both as fun and regretful as “Distraction #74” is?
I don’t think so. But I’d be happy to be proved wrong if anyone out there in the internets has one.
Anyway, this song, which feels like something I’d hear in a pub chanted drunkenly by a crowd of half bent soccer fans, captures the mix of emotions one might feel in such a situation.
I wouldn’t know though. I’ve never been in a situation like that… ;)
