I think I love you, though I don't know what that means

Sebadoh's "Think (Let Tomorrow Bee)" is not a love song because Lou Barlow, the lead singer, isn't sure what love is. An acoustic number delivered in a voice that nears a whisper, it stands out among Bubble and Scrape's (1993) messy noise rock/lo-fi experimentation and the shouted psychosis of alternate frontman Eric Gaffney. The song revolves around a chorus so fragile and sincere that, when sung, it sounds like it might completely dissolve. Simple and simply beautiful. Check it out.
