Riff: She & Him – “London”

May 7, 2013

Oh London, where it’s gloomy in the fall/I can’t shake this sadness cause it’s never that small

from London lyrics by She & Him

Paying tribute to the city she adores, whilst also confessing to the bout of seasonal affective disorder she suffers every time she visits, Deschanel’s torch singer routine is passable enough but she’s let down a forgettable song that’s even more dreary than the British weather; [LISTEN].
