“One of Us” (2015) by Local H

My favorite song of the year so far.  Local H singer/guitarist Scott Lucas wrote “One of Us” while he was on his way to a wake for a friend. As Lucas told the Onion AV Club last April “It’s a funeral song, but I didn’t want it to be morose. I wanted it to be unsentimental and kind of triumphant, and above all else, unapologetic. Anything less would’ve felt like lying.”  This is an amazing, powerful song, the best highlight of many highlights from their terrific album “Hey, Killer.”
