Musical Mondays- Valerie Plame

Last week I talked about how my musical tastes seems to go in literal seasons.  But, there are several artists I can listen to any time.  You can play their albums no matter the time of year or your mood and they seem to fit.  That's the way I feel about Florence + The Machine, Neko Case, The Avett Brothers, and especially The Decemberists.

They seem to have songs for my every mood.  (And trust me, some days there's a lot of them.)  One of my favorite Decemberist's song is "Valerie Plame".  It's a hard to get a hold of because it was one of the singles on their "Always the Bridesmaid" set of three records.  It's my favorite out of the three.  And really, who else but The Decemberists get away with releasing a love song of sorts to the CIA operative who had her cover blown by Scooter Libbey.  And if you don't remember this whole fiasco, no worries, you will still get the song stuck in your head.
