Ted Leo and the Pharmacists – “Hearts of Oak” from Hearts of Oak (2003)

Hope, not only the moniker of the alma mater to 3/4s of SWR, is an emotion called forth by some of my favorite music.

As noted here before, Ted Leo writes great songs about walking around–which, for whatever reason, I tend to associate with feelings of hopefulness. In “Hearts of Oak,” I can’t figure out whether he’s talking about a new band or a new love. Either way, it’s a great one to sing to yourself as you walk or bike (as I’ve been doing during the recent heatwave down south, hoping for more nice weather).

(Though this heat is probably attributable to global warming, a surefire killer-of-hope if there was one.)
