‘Skinny Love’ is about a women he once dated
Have you heard this amazing song? It was written by Justin Vernon for his folk band Bon Iver and then re-recorded by Birdy, who made it into an international hit. There’s been lots of speculation on what it’s about, but recently Vernon gave an interview explaining the meaning and talking about the relationship that prompted him to write song. It’s about a love, of course, but the sort of love that’s destructive and unsustainable.
Anyone else out there who likes this song?
