23. A song you think everybody should listen to A song by a band who probably should have broken up after their first album

I'm not confident enough in my musical taste to recommend something to everybody; I don't think my taste in music is bad, but it's very limited. So I've created a question I like better, inspired by question 24 ("a song by a band you wish were still together").

I loved the first Mumford and Sons album. I adored the banjos and the folk-rock fusion, and the lyrics struggled with religion and ethics and doubt and temptation in a way I found interesting. Then came the second album, and it was not good. The music was more conventional, and worse, the lyrics had become preachy and all the doubting humanity seemed to have vanished in favor of doctrinaire Christian assertions. So here's a song from the first album. I like it because it's very human, often emotionally ugly, and because it can be very easily be read as queer, though I'm not sure it was intended to.

Mumford and Sons, "White Blank Page"
