After watching Fun perform on Saturday Night Live, I declared to my husband that I MUST SEE THEM PERFORM LIVE whenever they decide to make a stop in the heartland.
I posted one of their videos last May and, since that time, my infatuation with their powerful music, their undeniable talent, and their vast influence has spiraled out of control.
I’ve latched onto certain songs over the years that remind me during my darkest hours (thankfully, I’ve had few) that life is absolutely beautiful and is so much bigger than any one of us can comprehend. We are blessed to be able to experience it, painful pitfalls and all.
If anyone out there is struggling to find their way, questioning how bad things can happen to good people, or just needs to curl up in a mental hole and remember to breathe, take a listen to these songs.
In order, from my most recent to my longest lasting favorite, I hope they lift you up as high as they’ve done for me.

Thank you, Heidi, for introducing me to the band. Since I once changed a diaper or two belonging to your husband (!)…..I am not one to stay up late enough to see SNL very often. I thoroughly enjoyed the video. I love your blog.
Thanks for commenting, Tavi. I don’t make it a habit of staying up that late either, but I make exceptions when there’s a high likelihood of it being a good episode. Your compliment about my blog means a lot.
