Indie,Folk,Rock and Alternative: Eels - That Fresh Feeling

One of The Eels' best songs. What makes it so special are the lyrics, which perfectly complement the music. Its the perfect song to use if one wants to profess one's infatuation with someone. The first verse says it all

You don't have a clue
What it is like to be next to you
I'm here to tell you
That it is good
That it is true

The visual imagery that it creates takes hold of you and you just have to listen to the rest of it.

Birds singing a song
Old paint is peeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

It really does have "That fresh feeling". My favorite verse of the song is,

Try to forget what's in the past
Tomorrow is here
Orange sky above lighting your way
There's nothing to fear

I just love the way in which it pleads one to shed inhibitions about a new relationship and trust the power of love.
Yeah, I know its a bit "Chick", but I cant help it, its just too good!
