We got turned onto The National several years ago on a trip to Washington, D.C.

In fact we bought the band’s Alligator LP at a music story across the street from the old Hotel Washington (now the trendy “W”).

If you’ve never heard of them, shame … they’re among the best indie songwriters in the world, and we can’t get enough of singer Matt Berninger’s voice.

In addition to Alligator (which we consider to be one of the finest alt-rock albums of the decade), be sure to check out the band’s latest two releases – The Boxer and 2010?s High Violet.

This cut, “Bloodbuzz Ohio” is off of High Violet.

As always, our jukebox is also your jukebox. If you’ve got a song you want to hear, email us. Also be sure to scroll down beneath the lyrics to see all the other songs we’ve played previously …

THE NATIONAL: “BLOODBUZZ OHIO”

Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I’ll lift my shirt up
Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I’ll lift my shirt up

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I never married but Ohio don’t remember me

Lay my head on the hood of your car
I take it too far
Lay my head on the hood of your car
I take it too far

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I’m on a bloodbuzz
Yes I am
I’m on a blood…buzz
I’m on a bloodbuzz
God I am
I’m on a blood…buzz

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I never married but Ohio don’t remember me

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I’m on a bloodbuzz
Yes I am
I’m on a blood…buzz
I’m on a bloodbuzz
God I am
I’m on a blood…buzz
