Song of the Month: Metric, Live It Out

It’s my birthday.

To mark the occasion, I wanted to pick a song that just makes me happy, without thinking about it too much. So that pretty much made me go straight to Live It Out, off the album of the same name.

Picking a favourite Metric song is like picking a favourite child, but Live It Out is one of the top contenders. Metric might have other songs that affect me more powerfully emotionally, but for sheer fun, it can’t be beat.

This is just such a good song.
