Midweek Complaints? I got none.

Listen below to a song of radical contentment. A song that plucks some playful folk chords and shrugs its shoulders. "I Can't Complain" by modern-day troubadour Todd Snider stands as one of his crowning achievements. Everything Snider brings to the table here is emblematic of the musical gifts- dizzying sincerity, unassured sarcasm, and a sense of goofiness all buried underneath a veneer of folk chords and country twangs. A+ lyricist. I guess I can't complain.
