    He's just bringing it. This is my favorite song of 2020...hell it could be my favorite song of all time. It touches me deeply. Because it's my life in parallel.

    And the lyrics...

    Weller is great. Always has been.

    But On Sunset is on a different level. Haunting. Soothing. It blows my mind.

    yeah its so frikkin solid. that moment when he's first getting in the car and the camera gets him singing the words.... slays me. also gives me the creeps a little but just because of how much i was loving Blackstar and didnt know it was Bowie's Swan Song until he died a couple weeks after the "single" was released... i hope Weller puts out a whole bunch more... and his voice is better now than it was when he was young. i mean he can croon.

    also, noticed a kind of subtle referencing one of the standard bearers of looking back rock Boys of Summer, but with a killer instinct... its just beautiful work all the way around. it's been hard to write this without using f bombs and goddamns...

    Astute.

    Weller speaks to me where Henley doesn't because we're of the same generation. Like a brother sharing a story that you get...because you lived it too.
