Dark, Delicate, Haunting Lullaby versus Thor? No Contest. Birdy's "Skinny Love" For The Win, by Allison

I've had Birdy's cover of Bon Iver's Skinny Love on constant repeat.

Is gorgeous. 

Ethereal, dark, haunting, tragic lullaby.

And since I have issues with traditional lullabies - too many babies falling and birds pecking out diamonds mirrors breaking and who wants a goat anyway?

They creep me out. 

I make no secret of that.

And as I am banished from the family viewing of Thor -
(Note: Partly self-imposed, and partly because I will start laughing at the costumes and everyone will throw stuff at me and try to make me be quiet - I am a known ruiner of superheroes in costumes movie viewing ( )

I have my big purple headphones on, glutting myself on this gorgeous, stormy, woeful lullaby.

And as always, am benevolent benefactor. Birdy's version of "Skinny Love"
