'I Believe in Love,' Indigo Girls
From 2006's 'Despite Our Differences'
I have renewed faith in the Indigo Girls. Their 1989 eponymous debut was a regular in my first car's cassette deck, and remains a favorite on my iPod today. And while I've enjoyed subsequent Indigo Girls records, none -- in my opinion -- have lived up to their explosive debut. That is until 2006's 'Despite Our Differences.'
The Girls found a new producer and a new label, but they revisited their musical style that earned them platinum sales and Grammy recognition in the early '90s. 'I Believe in Love' is particularly reminiscent of the first Indigo Girls album, playing up the duo's -- Amy Ray and Emily Saliers -- exquisite harmonies and therapeutic lyrics. The song is simultaneously happy and sad: It mourns love lost -- likening the storied relationship to "coffee growing colder in the cups" -- yet forcefully assures that the relationship hasn't reached its denouement. But rather, will blossom into a friendship. Forget the cynics -- this is a good life lesson wrapped in a gorgeous song.
