Song of the Day, December 4: Vibrate by Rufus Wainwright

RufusVibrateToday’s song is a fun moment from Rufus Wainwright’s ambitious third album, Want One. Vibrate is an ode to hooking up in the modern age, a look at the challenges of blending technology and romance.

My phone’s on vibrate for you
But still I never ever feel from you

Wainwright’s vocal is flawless, capturing the tension and loneliness with just the right edge of hope. Short and sweet, it’s a delightful construct and one of the singer’s personal favorites.

Enjoy this great song today.
