Tonight at Berbati's Pan, I finally get to see Sam Roberts, four years after I picked up We Were Born In A Flame and instantly became a huge fan. Although I like about 90% of his songs, I'll try and narrow it down to just my top 5.
"End Of The Empire"
"Start a little fire in your best attire / You can blame the gin for the mess you're in"
The best song off my third favorite album. Still a tough choice.
"Where Have All the Good People Gone?"
This is one of those songs I find myself singing along a little louder than I intended, or than my wife appreciates, especially when I'm wearing headphones.
"Love At The End Of The World"
The title and lead song from his newest album and worthy of its status.
"Don't Walk Away Eileen"
Probably the first song of his I heard, and it is still my favorite.
