Ought – More than Any Other Day

Ought – More than Any Other Day

I’ve been poring over Top 2014 lists for the past couple of weeks, looking for more things to like. Does anyone else skip over the rap and electronic stuff? Maybe I am getting old. Either way, here is a track from Ought’s “More than Any Other Day”. The song is called “Habit”.

I am not sure what time frame to reference. Maybe I can just say “nowadays”. Or maybe I’ve felt this way forever.

I was disappointed for a minute when I finally heard it. Not because it wasn’t good, but because they went from this fun-loving easy-to-listen blast of fun, … Continue reading
