How about an honorably funny, easy tune set to be released as a single very, very soon? Starting your weekend with a laugh is the best way to start your weekend! Or any other week day!
Thank you for this beautiful week, for your amazing and insightful comments, I wish you have the greatest weekend yet, here’s Paolo Nutini’s Pencil Full Of Lead! ( more info right after the jump!)
Who’s Paolo Nutini and why is he relevant? Because he’s young, talented and he makes funny, happy music! Yes, it’s the typical young-no-worries, girls are pretty, the sun is up and all we have to do is party all life long, but indulge me in this Pencil Full of Lead likeness, you’ll see it’ll catch up with you!
22-year old Paolo is at his 2nd album, the first came out on the music scene in 2006 and registered amazing success both with the public and the critics. His second album comes three years later and this song featured here is the third single set to be released in November. Yes, this November! He confessed his first happy encounter with the music – at the early age of five, listening to The Drifters (When My Little Girl Is Smiling) he was just happy. I don’t know if he authentically recalls that himself as early memories are hardly this accurate, but for the love of the happy-story, let’s believe him. He dropped out of school (is that a Scots fashion? Since he’s the second Scotsman I write about having dropped school early to pursue his dreams) and here he is, living his dream, pretty successfully, I might add!
