"Sheffield Shanty" by Monkey Swallows the Universe
Ah, yes: not two minutes after I post about my Favorite Songs of 2005, I come across an early candidate for my 2006 list. It's a lovely, spare acoustic number, beautifully sung; faintly reminiscent of Kings of Convenience, but with a female lead vocalist, and a sly nod to Paul Simon near the end. Go here and download "Sheffield Shanty." You'll thank me.
