Teddy Thompson sings the most romantic song of 2011

He’s an extraordinary songwriter/musician, which is why I suspect that his actual voice is often overlooked. But it is something that gets under your skin like a belief.

Delilah is another song in that grand tradition of art (see When Harry Met Sally and anything starring Michael Cera) that’s devoted to the fact that boys and girls can’t ever be friends once they’ve acknowledged each other’s gender.

Why does a man have to resist a never-ending happiness?
Delilah, Oh Delilah

I got myself out of the way
My debt to you is now repaid
I was a fool to let you go
I’m sorry and I love you so
