My Favourite Faded Fantasy – Damien Rice

Occasionally there are moments that even the best football game or episode of Parks and Recreation can’t improve. In those circumstances, sometimes only a song or a beautiful album can truly affect one’s state of mind. One album in particular has been making waves in my world: My Favourite Fantasy by Damien Rice. Damien’s soft, raspy vocals shine against his sole guitar. His lyrics are heartbreaking and are truly some of the most beautiful words I’ve ever heard. My favorite songs on the album are “The Greatest Bastard” and “I Don’t Want to Change You”. When I’m writing, blogging, or soaking in the stress of everyday life, I will have this album in the background.
