Music Monday is a meme, created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, where I focus on a song I absolutely love and feel needs to be shared.

Song: “Echo”
Artist: Incubus
Album: Morning View (2001)

Lyrics taken from genius.com

[Verse 1]
There’s something about the look in your eyes
Something I noticed when the light was just right
It reminded me twice that I was alive
And it reminded me that you’re so worth the fight 

[Chorus]
My biggest fear will be the rescue of me
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah
Could you show me dear?
Something I’ve not seen
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear?
Something I’ve not seen
Something infinitely interesting

[Verse 2]
There’s something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
More subtle than something someone contrives
Your movements echo that I’ve seen the real thing

 [Chorus]
Your biggest fear will be the rescue of you
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah
Could you show me dear?
Something I’ve not seen
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear?
Something I’ve not seen
Something infinitely interesting

A mellow track that focuses on bass groves, bent guitar chords, and drums played with brushes, “Echo” is a hidden gem from the rock band Incubus. The song pulses along with synthesizers floating by in the background while singer Brandon Boyd’s calm crooning adds a layer of yearning before a short guitar solo by Mike Einzinger. The lyrics describe a lover in awe of the fact that they can be so interested in another person. Though it is relatively simple in its content, “Echo” earnest, enamored entreaty brings to mind the welcome waters of an emotional oasis found after years wandering in a drought of loneliness.
