Song Of The Day: Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson – “Relator” (2009)

Happy Birthday to singer-songwriter Pete Yorn, who was born on this day in 1974 and is turning 43 today. Yorn rode the singer-songwriter revival of the early-2000s, striking it big in 2001 with his album Musicforthemorningafter. But I like him best for this 2009 collaboration with the actress Scarlett Johansson, I think it is one of the best Pop Rock songs of the century so far. This is how it’s done, a great three-section melody with an irresistible chorus, and a simple but still interesting-enough lyric. Throw in ScarJo’s adorable smoky vocals and you’ve got a hit for the ages, how can you not love it?
