Revelry by Kings of Leon

Album: Only By the NightReleased: 2009Charted:
  • In an interview with The Village Voice, vocalist Caleb Followill described this piano-led bluesy ballad, where he is voicing his regrets at a relationship ending because of his love of partying, as "sad." Caleb penned the lyrics through a haze of prescription painkillers, which he was taking because of an injury to his shoulder. He told The Village Voice that the painkillers influenced his songwriting. Caleb explained: "It's kind of like you feel good but it's the kind of good feeling that brings about kind of sad emotions, things like that. I hold a lot in. I'm not the kind of guy that cries and stuff like that. Not that that's a good thing. But, you know, after I've had a few drinks and I have a songbook in front of me, a lot of times I'll kind of talk to myself a little bit, you know, and kind of point a finger at myself, and usually that's the most emotion that comes out of me."

This album has so many great songs. Love the emotion in this song. "The demon in me was the best of friends from the start." Very sweet and sad.Holly - Florida
