Pete Yorn Day I Forgot

After the release of his debut album Musicforthemorningafter, it was difficult to find a film that didn’t cap off a sappy moment without a Pete Yorn song. Somehow though, having the music backlighting Dawson every time he decided one of the Creek hoes wasn’t worth the strain on his wrist, didn’t deter from the personal feeling that the album contained. On Day I Forgot, Yorn is back with his usual pleasant melancholy sound, this time though there’s more to the way he’s expressing it. Where Musicforthemorningafter was generally accessible to anyone who had ever left a Junior High dance depressed, Day I Forgot calls on Springsteen and the Smiths influences to express more confused sentiments accessible to people that left college depressed.
