If I Die Young

Without further adieu, I give you an introduction to The Band Perry and their newest song, "If I Die Young."

I discovered them by happenstance. While I can't say that I'm in love with some of their other songs, I find harmony and a certain amount of charm in "If I Die Young." I think that this song could be interpreted in a lot of contexts. To me, it's highly reminiscent of a segment in Anne of Green Gables. In the segment, Anne is re-enacting/reading her favorite poem, "The Lady of Shalott" by Tennyson. I think that this is just a more modern take on both Tennyson's poem as well as L.M Montgomery's scene. Or not. However you choose to interpret, it's a beautiful song.
