Track and Field Mixtape–Keane’s “The Starting Line”

May 31st, 2012 in Music

Headed into the California State Track and Field Championships, the NCAA Championships at Drake Stadium, the Olympic Qualifier in Eugene, and eventually the London Olympics, we add a seasons-end song to the mix.  For some athletes their season is complete, all effort given and exploited in their exploits.  Some may have remorse (or joy) in being done.  May this song serve as encouragement on any and all levels.

Check out the ever-melodic Brit-band, Keane (with ever-cherubic lead singer Tom Chaplin) playing their recent song, The Starting Line, in Manchester last night (this interwebs thing just might catch on).  After, check out an acoustic version of the same song which reminds of favorite fellow Brit-band Travis and the vocals of The Antlers’ Peter Silberman.  “Drag your heart up to the starting line, forget the ghosts that make you old before your time, it’s too easy to get left behind….”  Indeed.  Back at it.
