The Dark is Rising

"The Dark is Rising," is the first track and single off Mercury Rev's 2001 release All is Dream.   The lyrics are very dream-centric, and emotional, and these, being emitted in Jonathan Donahue's voice, along with the orchestral crescendos and simple strings, give the song its powerful mood.  The video has quite a bit to offer in that way as well, with its combination of dark and bright colors, fast-paced nature scenes and even the integration of some surprising steampunk, it is a very dreamy four minutes (and perfect Springtime music)!
