Song of the Day: Frank Turner “Josephine”

_IAS6429In honor of new US tour dates, let’s have Josephine from Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls – Positive Songs for Negative People –  as song of the day.

Frank is a notorious history buff and it shows in this song.  The name “Josephine” refers to two women – Joséphine de Beauharnais, the first wife of Napoléon Bonaparte, and Josephine Brunsvik, thought to be Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved.”  Both women served as muses for their lovers and Frank seems to be searching for a Josephine of his own.
