Riff: The Lumineers – “Ho Hey”

Dec 26, 2012

I don’t know where I went wrong(Ho) But I can write a song (Hey)

from Ho Hey lyrics by The Lumineers

Muscling in on Mumford & Sons’ territory, this breakthrough hit from true Americana genre counterpart sees frontman Wesley Schultz try and fail to make sense of his new-found singledom on a breakup tale whose sorrow is masked by a ‘ho-hey’ chant reminiscent of a chorus line of the Seven Dwarfs.
