This song is #3 on Rolling Stone magazines list of the 50 best songs of 2012.One the catchiest synth-pop tunes that was everpresent on the radio all summer long last year. Or at least until ,in some cases, certain Alternative Rock stations were shut down by the corporate pricks in charge of them these days. I dont know if I want to consider this as Top Ten material however.

take a walk by passion pit captures the story of a man coming to terms with the challenges happening around him. He is trying to stay strong for both himself and his partner. Additionally, his business partner admits that their investment accounts did not go according to planned. The song also captures tough symbolism of being able to help yourself, knowing when to ask for help, and even serves as a representation for a debate on the best steps to take when the unexpected happens.

Some may think being labeled a dance band is the kiss of death: not so! It's where I first heard these guys with the Reeling and I have been following them ever since, harmonies, melodies and great lyrics abound. They were the only reason I watched Saturday Night Live when they appeared late 2012. Great live performance, I was initially skeptical but impressed by how good they sounded live.
