I rather love Rilo Kiley. Beautiful lyrics, lovely melodies and Jenny Lewis’s amazing voice. I Never, from their album More Adventurous is a proper love song, with a swirling melody to which you can twirl around the dancefloor to the joy of all that behold you. Probably.
The only problem with it that I can imagine is that the chorus consists of the line “Cause I never” 27 times (followed by “loved somebody the way I loved you”). This would drive more senior members of my family round the bend (I can hear my mum now, shouting, “You never loved anyone the way you love him! I get it! Sheesh!”).
