Spooky torch

Yet another sad and beautiful song from the Devics. This is "Spooky", off their brilliant 2006 album Push the Heart.

The folks who've posted the Devics' songs to YouTube seem to post a lot of whiny emo too. You don't see that whiny emo here because I don't like it. Why do I like Devics and not the whiny emo? I think it's got something to do with steel. Sara Lov observes the affairs of the heart in all its glory and sadness but does not indulge in the "oh woe is me" pity trip that the whiny emo types do. She's got too much steel in her spine for that. She's a survivor, not a victim. Warriors come in all shapes and sizes...
