Quiet Bounce: Standing On The Verge Of Breaking Up Or Making Love

Van Hunt's "Down Here in Hell (With You)" feels particularly timely right now. We're descending into the end-of-year holidays during an unrelenting recession. Everyone is digging in, situations are really tough, and the passion between many lovers is under strain and being tested. "Down Here in Hell" relishes in the mire, stating that it's better to trudge through together than untried and untouched but alone. Singing about how the fairy tale ending is not necessarily bad, maybe even worth something, makes Van Hunt's love song about the flip side worth a re-listening.
