"Croissant" performed by Jay Brannan

Croissants are a quintessential part of the French diet – along with other staples “pain au chocolat’ (literally translated ‘bread with chocolate – and other such confectionaries.

Recently, I stumbled across a glum, depressing but thought provoking acoustic song christened after that quintessential piece of french food – the croissant. Sung by Jay Brannan, a ‘youtube sensation’ if there ever was one 🙂 – the musician likens himself to ‘a croissant’ as an image of how ordinary and what an average joe he is in the face of his much more sophisticated love interest. The imagery sounds a bit silly but it’s a morose, imperfect song that nonetheless sweet piece of acoustic musicianship.
