24: Camera Obscura - Let's Get Out of This Country

When I listen to Camera Obscura I find myself underneath a big blue sky somewhere in the countryside cavorting with young friends who always seem to have a smile on their faces. They write warm fuzzy memories that take you back into that part of your life where you never want to grow up, always wistfully dreaming the day away. The music itself isn't locked down into one specific genre or era. It could easily be played on classic radio of yesteryear or the modern rock stations of today. It's gentle and easy on the ear and you find yourself free and singing as the world surrounds you with wonder.

I remember warm nights underneath the streetlamp at the end of the cul-de-sac. A dozen kids congregate in the darkness of a recent sunset. One unlucky soul places his head against the pole and begins to count. The rest of us scatter and hide in the shadows where only the sounds and smells of summer can find us.
