Moving On

Album: The Secret Migration (2005)


  • Uncut magazine asked Mercury Rev frontman Jonathan Donahue whether it is significant that this song with its mantra-like hope that it will be better in the sun follows the remorseful "My Love"? He replied: "A lot of us at that time were going through some pretty heavy stuff. It was basically the last optimistic life-preserver on the ship at that moment. Its been one of those periods for us. 'My Love' was born of a particular sorrow, and 'Moving On' probably has a lot to do with not getting too worked up about the guilt and about the regret that 'My Love' brought to the surface." >>
