First Awesomely Inspiring Song of 2009 - Emmy The Great - First Love

This song is absolutely brilliant. "First Love" starts off simple, with acoustic guitar and Emmy's bittersweet vocals being slowly accompanied with a skittering snare drum, and then builds into an uplifting chorus that channels Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". It's a subtle lovestory of a song, that builts into an ending that builds pace and takes you along with it until Emmy's final gasp of the title lyric. It borders on exhilerating. Video? Video!

The single "First Love" is released on February 23rd, but the album of the same name is released on February 9th, and is worth checking out. Expect a review of that sometime next week!
