Colin Meloy is a sex addict

No two ways about it. Pervert, too. Colin has history. First “We Both Go Down Together” and now “Philomena” (song of the year, if anyone’s interested). Lots of other innuendos here and there, of course, but “Philomena” takes the top prize. 

If only you would let me go down.

One hell of a first verse line.

All that I wanted in the world is just to live to see a naked girl.

Freud would have a field day with the chorus of “Philomena”. In fact, we should all have a field day with the chorus of “Philomena”. Might be the most shamelessly irresistible thing you will hear in 2015. So tuneful you can stick your teeth into it.

I wanted so much more.

Now it makes sense.
