Captain And The Kings – It Is The Mercy * Single of the day * release date 7/3/2011

As a rule I don't watch the video of a song until I decide I like the actual song. It Is The Mercy is a great pop rock track with a folky undertone and a story in the lyrics, which the video then informed me was about a chap called Donald Crowhurst.

Wikipedia (link attached) rescued me from my ignorance and added an entire new level of poignancy to the song lifting it into the sublime.

Captain And The Kings have achieved something very special with It Is The Mercy and I strongly suggest you read the background story (if you don't already know it) to experience the full beauty of this track.
